Currently, Mindspace has 40 locations in 20 cities and 7 countries in Europe, the United States, and Israel. Poland’s first Mindspace branch, Mindspace Koszyki, is located adjacent to Hala Koszyki,, and spans nearly 5,500sqm. The Mindspace offices are located over four floors of the building at ul. Koszykowa 61, and over two floors in the tower at ul. Koszykowa 65, offering 781 workstations in total.
After the success of its first location, Mindspace is launching a second site in the Polish capital, having selected the state-of-the-art Skyliner building at Rondo Daszyńskiego for its new Polish headquarters.
“We are really excited to expand our operations in Warsaw and to start cooperating with Karimpol,” said Yotam Alroy, co-founder and Chief Business Officer at Mindspace. “We have been closely monitoring the Polish market for a new location for several years, and the Skyliner building has turned out to be the best option. Its exceptional location and impressive architecture perfectly match our high standards and our approach to design.
“Each of our global locations showcase the signature Mindspace design style, yet they are always infused with a local flavor. The natural light and views over the city make this location particularly special, as well as offering the excellent benefits and services that Mindspace members can expect,” Alroy said.
“I am confident that this new standout location will be appreciated by both potential clients and our current members, who can use any Mindspace location worldwide at no additional cost. As demand for flexible office solutions continues to grow globally and with our offices at near full capacity, we continue to look for new business opportunities in both the EMEA region and the US. We recently opened new locations in Miami, Berlin, and Israel and are continuing to expand our portfolio worldwide,” Alroy added.
“Due to the growing popularity of flexible office spaces and the development of coworking services in Poland, we are very happy that Mindspace will be included in our flagship building. We are convinced that the great location of the building, the modern solutions that we have designed with its users in mind, as well as ESG initiatives that we are implementing and developing, will contribute to the comfortable use of the office space by members of the Mindspace community,” said Harald Jeschek, Managing Partner at Karimpol Group.
