Workland, a leading flexible office space provider, is expanding its network in the Baltics and opening soon another coworking and serviced offices centre, Workland Bures, in Vilnius. Plans for the year include also opening additional centres in Riga and Tallinn.
“The future of office spaces is flexible. We have seen increased demand from companies looking for innovative, employee-centric, and inspiring work solutions for their teams. As hybrid and remote work arrangements have become the norm, the demand for flexible office solutions has grown even more during the last six months. 2022 will be the year of growth for Workland; besides opening Workland Bures in Vilnius this August, we are also planning to expand our network of coworking centres in Tallinn and Riga, expecting to add additional 40% growth to already existing business by bringing over 7 000 m2 of new flexible office space to the market. Our 5-year plan includes even more aggressive expansion to keep up with the rapidly growing demand,” comments Indrek Haal, the Founder and CEO of Workland.
Larger and larger corporations are choosing flexible solutions; the agile character and ability to adapt is not anymore just for start-up and small companies; everybody has gone over their costs and contracts and are rethinking their office space. “The pre-pandemic rigid long-term office lease agreements have been reviewed, and businesses are ready to make a move, adding in more flexibility and cutting costs. At the same time, the working environment is becoming an important part of the motivation package for the new workforce. We see how the expectations towards office space have become more diverse; it’s a place for collaboration between team members and at the same time offers networking opportunities with like-minded entrepreneurs outside your organisations.” explains Hääl.
Workland is taking the whole floor of 3Bures office centre and turning it into an inspiring and functional coworking centre. There will be private offices of various sizes as well as coworking zones, open areas and meeting rooms to support everybody's working style. The centre will accommodate around 250 people and is designed to keep community and flexibility in the focus. “Hybrid work is becoming a prevailing style for many companies, and in Workland centres, it’s easy to scale up or down depending on how the team and its needs are changing,” explains Hääl.
3Bures office property is strategically located on Lvovo Street, next to Konstitucijos Avenue, and is very easily accessible. Several of Vilnius’ most important institutions are within walking distance, such as Vilnius City Municipality, Centre of Registers (located in 3Bures) and Vilnius County Administration. Europa shopping centre and the Old Town are just a few minutes' ride away.
Kęstutis Sasnauskas, CEO of Eastnine, welcomes Workland as a coworking centre adding value to the complex. “We can see an increasing need for flexibility, especially from smaller tenants, when it comes to working areas and lease periods. We are convinced that Workland’s establishment will be helpful when it comes to the fulfilment of the customers’ needs,” comments Sasnauskas.
3Bures office complex covers the needs of modern society, offering 1,017 parking spaces, car wash, bicycle parking, charging stations for electric vehicles. The building has three restaurants: iLunch, pietausim.lt and FreshPost, making it a convenient location for many businesses. Over 50 companies and 2,500 employees have already chosen 3Bures-1,2 in Vilnius as their base of operations. “3Bures-1,2 is a top-notch office property with a panoramic view of Vilnius’ cityscape, which inspires both traditional business and smaller start-ups. Sustainability is very important for us; the building has a LEED Platinum sustainability certification and prospects 100% climate-neutral operations by 2030. It’s a great spot for different businesses to use the opportunity to cooperate under the same roof, exchange ideas, and inspire each other thanks to communal meeting areas, several restaurants, and engaging events.” emphasises Sasnauskas.
“In Workland Bures, we will offer a number of smaller offices so that teams of all sizes can have their privacy. All offices, small and large, will have a lot of natural light, original interior solutions and modern, bright design. We are thrilled and cannot wait to welcome new members to our strong and supportive community, bringing together versatile companies and professionals from various business fields.” comments Laura Panoviene, manager of Workland’s fully-serviced offices and coworking centres in Lithuania.
