Pilot co-working offices project is perfect for target market says Anja Graff, company CEO
Vision Apartments will launch its first shared offices, open to all in the company's renovated building on Militärstrasse in Zurich on July 1st. The pilot project in Militärstrasse is intended to extend the product offering and drive revenues. The next step will be to provide offices in other buildings in Switzerland and abroad.
Highlighted as one of our key trends for 2016, Anja Graf, CEO & Chairwoman of Vision Apartments, said "The shared office concept is perfect for our target market, which consists largely of international business travellers. Co-working spaces are booming at the moment. We will monitor and enhance this trend with interest. Multi-use concepts like this add value to our residential buildings and for our tenants as well. Our guests already make great use of existing facilities like wellness or fitness areas, VIP lounges or third-party catering services, and really appreciate them."
The new offices are on the ground floor of the recently fully renovated building at Militärstrasse 24 in Zurich and bear the signature colours of the stylish Vision Apartments. With approximately 70 m2 of floor space there is 14 reserved workstations available, together with a lounge and kitchen area and everything you would expect in a working sole-traveller business environment.
After a successful test phase in Militärstrasse, further offices are to be opened in the Vision Apartments Flagship House at Zurich's Giesshübel railway station.
The pilot office working concept was announced together with new real estate projects in Basle, Lausanne, Berlin, and Vienna. The company also revealed its ambition to expand its portfolio of furnished apartments from 1,000 units currently to 2,000 by 2018.
