Flexible Work On The Rise in Vancouver

These two new Vancouver centres are a testament to our focus on helping to mobilize the future of work and the way people are doing business today. We are focused on growing in the most prestigious and prime locations so people can work how they want and when they want while reducing the cost of traditional office spaces.

Global flexible workplace provider expands presence to new MNP Tower and King’s Cross, Surrey

In response to the massive demand for flexible workspaces and coworking options in Vancouver, Regus, global workspace provider, is expanding its presence in the downtown core and suburban markets.

Today, Regus is opening its doors to two new flexible workspaces in prime and sought-after locations. In the breathtaking, highly anticipated and award-winning skyscraper, MNP Tower and in one of Canada’s fastest growing cities, Surrey in King’s Cross at 7404 King George Blvd.

The approach to work is changing with entrepreneurs, small businesses and large corporations choosing flexibility over traditional office spaces. According to a recent Regus report, 76 per cent of Canadians say they have seen a rise in the remote working and 48 per cent of global professionals are now working outside the main office at least some of the time making the demand for a network of professional settings, which fits with remote work, rising steadily.

“These two centres are a testament to our focus on helping to mobilize the future of work and the way people are doing business today,” said Wayne Berger, VP of Regus Canada. “We are focused on growing in the most prestigious and prime locations so people can work how they want and when they want while reducing the cost of traditional office spaces.”

With the new location in Surrey, Regus is now located in all suburban markets in Vancouver. There was a high demand for the new Surrey opening due to high housing prices, traffic gridlock and the Port Mann toll bridge to enter the downtown core. One Surrey clients Gurdit Mann, CGA, says “I’m working from the new Surrey location for three key reasons; it’s in a prime location, I can scale my business operations where I need without having to move, and I like how professional Regus buildings are.”

The new Regus centre is part of 65 centres coast-to-coast in Canada, and a network of 2,000 business centres in 104 countries around the world. There are now 13 locations in Vancouver and Lower Mainland including World Trade Centre, Yaletown, Langley, Burnaby, Richmond, and locations in Victoria and Kelowna, BC. Regus centre provides fully equipped offices, coworking, ‘ThinkPod’ hot desks, virtual offices, meeting rooms and administrative staff as well as memberships to access to business lounges across the world.
