WESTHIVE OPENS A NEW LOCATION IN ZURICH-WOLLISHOFEN
The Zurich coworking pioneer Westhive AG is pushing ahead with its expansion due to the high capacity utilisation of its existing locations: With Westhive Wollishofen, the third location with a further 150 desks will be opened in April 2020. This will increase Westhive’s capacity to a total of 600 desks.
The new location at Seestrasse 353 is particularly attractive for people living on the left bank of Lake Zurich: It is only a 3-minute walk from the Zurich-Wollishofen SBB railway station, and the Wollishofen motorway junction can also be reached in 5 minutes. The connection to the city centre is ensured by five tram and three bus lines with their stops practically in front of the building. Both the centre of Wollishofen with its shops and restaurants and the lakeside are within walking distance.
Westhive Wollishofen follows the proven concept: it offers individual workplaces in open space that can be rented on a daily or monthly basis, as well as self-contained team offices. The offer is supplemented by meeting rooms equipped to a high technical standard, which can also be booked by external persons.
«In our experience, the location of a coworking space is absolutely critical for its success», explains Bruno Rambaldi, who is responsible for the company’s expansion strategy. «The property at Seestrasse 353 is ideally located in many respects. The decision to take the step from Zurich West to Zurich South was therefore an easy one for us to make.»
Westhive AG opened its first coworking location at Hardturmstrasse 161 in April 2018. Together with the Westhive Library in the Zurich Hürlimann area and the Westhive Skyspace, around 400 workstations with a complete service infrastructure are available today. Prominent Westhive members include the strategic partner Swiss Startup Group, the Valora Digital Innovation Lab, the AMAG Group’s Innovation & Venture Lab, LafargeHolcim Startup MAQER, the Swiss Startup Group and over 25 startups from a variety of industries.
