The rapid emergence of coworking spaces in many cities around Metro Manila is an incredible phenomenon, but it is also an expected result of the rising popularity of collaboration. With the growing start-up community – and the increased interest in industries intersecting and finding new ways to work together – more and more coworking spaces have begun to open their doors in key business centers of Metro Manila. One of these business centers is Ortigas Center in Pasig City. Coworking spaces, with their own unique spin to their services, have taken residence in Ortigas Center in recent years, bringing together people from all sorts of industries to share experiences and exchange ideas.
Here are 3 of the newest coworking spaces in Ortigas to know about:
- KMC Solutions
Located at the 15th and 16th floors of Cyberscape Gamma along Ruby and Topaz Roads is KMC Solutions, which expanded their renowned brand of coworking spaces to Pasig City in mid-2018. This branch of KMC Solutions in Cyberscape Gamma has been dubbed as a “innovator’s haven” with spaces tailor-made for startup teams. The rock-and-roll themed office is equipped with lounges, pantries, and common areas for events.
There’s a cool and laid-back atmosphere in KMC Solutions: those who work there share in a certain freedom where they can exchange ideas and learn from one another. It’s a stimulating workspace with an amazing view of the Ortigas skyline. The interiors are hip, plants are everywhere, and it’s conducive for work.
At the ground floor of Cyberscape Gamma is work.able, another coworking space that’s conveniently located just to the side of the building. Taking from its name, this space aims to provide a workable environment for people that’s also convenient and dependable. In fact, it’s very convenient that its guests are spared of the inconvenience of having to register at the lobby and line up for an elevator just to get to their office.
For a starting plan of just Php 250 an hour for a hot desk, it is one of the cheapest in the area for unlimited access to high speed internet, free coffee, and other amenities. They have several other plans ideal for start-up companies looking for a private office or a group of creatives working on a project together. The co-working space also doubles as an events venue.
Despite it being focused on helping people finish their work fast and easy, the team at work.able is still intentional in helping connect people and let collaboration thrive in the shared space. They host events for its members regularly such as community yoga, seminars and talks, and end-of-the-work-week drinks for everyone to truly feel like they’re a part of its growing community.
3. Loft Coworking Space Manila
More minimalist in style, Loft Coworking Space Manila merges industrial detailing with modern furniture. Located in the Penthouse 1 floor of One Corporate Center, Loft houses coworking desks, private offices, conference rooms named after Game of Thrones references, event spaces, and business support services. They also house Ellipsis Coffee, offering hand-crafted coffee for both its tenants and visitors. As the day draws to an end, those working at Loft can visit their outdoor patio and watch the sunset.
Loft offers a space for all types of clients: freelancers, on-the-go entrepreneurs, start-up groups, and even students looking for a fully-equipped space to make their work more efficient and productive. They have a number of plans to avail depending on what is needed. But it’s not all work at Loft; they hold workshops and movie nights for their clients to unwind, learn something new, and have a great time.
