Former WeWork European MD Launches First London Flexible Workspace
07 February 2022
 

infinitSpace, a new flexible workspace company founded by the former European MD of WeWork, is about to open its first London workspace in Aldgate Tower, with twenty other locations across Europe to follow.

The workspace will be called “beyond Aldgate Tower” and will offer both co-working and private office spaces.

The property owner, Brookfield Properties, has agreed on terms with infinitSpace to operate its brand in 60,000 square feet of flexible workspace.

The spaces all have flexible terms and premium services, suitable for individuals up to large teams. There are fully equipped meeting rooms and event spaces, as well as ultra-fast WiFi, IT support, barista coffee and phone booths.

Flexible Workspace Founded by Former WeWork Director

 

infinitSpace was founded by WeWork’s former Managing Director of North & West Europe, Wybo Wijnbergen (CEO), his brother and serial tech entrepreneur Wilco Wijnbergen (CTO), and former Director of Real Estate at Mindspace, Elad Hod (CGO). 

Wybo Wijnbergen, CEO of infinitSpace, said: “We are delighted to unveil our first London workspace. Aldgate Tower is an amazing, modern building that combines a prime location with contemporary design, light-filled spaces and great views. It is a perfect fit for our flexible workspace brand, beyond. 

“Since the start of the pandemic, flexible working has become the norm for many businesses. This means they need flexible spaces to work in – ones that can be accessed around the clock, are optimised with technology, and provide an exceptional experience to inspire people to travel to a place of work.

“We are human-centric; everything we do is tailored to empowering human endeavour. And we’re delighted to partner with Brookfield Properties to deliver beyond Aldgate Tower – we cannot wait to begin welcoming companies and their teams in March.” 

Martin Wallace, Senior Vice President Leasing at Brookfield Properties, added: “We are always focused on creating a great experience for our tenants, so the partnership with infinitSpace made perfect sense. Spread across three floors, beyond Aldgate Tower will not only serve new occupiers that are seeking an amazing, flexible workspace, it will also provide new opportunities for our current tenants.” 

beyond Aldgate Tower will be open to members in March 2022.
