A new co-working player enters Warsaw’s innovation ecosystem this October. Mindspace offers its members unique access to an international business network. Mindspace Warsaw will span 3,000 sqm and accommodate more than 450 members.
Mindspace, a rapidly-growing global provider of inspiring co-working spaces, announced on May 22 that it will open its first co-working space in Poland at the trendy HalaKoszyki in Warsaw. The new location will open in October 2017 and will span three floors and over 3,000 sqm. MindspaceWarsaw will become home for 450 members: teams from innovative enterprises, small and medium businesses, technology start-ups, as well as entrepreneurs and freelancers.
Mindspace is a global provider of inspiring co-working spaces for teams of all sizes, with locations in Berlin, Hamburg, Munich, Tel Aviv, and now Warsaw. Mindspace was founded in 2014 by Dan Zakai and Yotam Alroy and has raised to date over $15 million to expand globally, with new spaces opening later this year in Europe and the United States. Mindspace prides itself on offering an upscale co-working environment with an inspiring boutique design, unparalleled level of service, and a vibrant real-world community. Among Mindspace’s customers are world-leading brands, such as Samsung, Barclays Bank, Euronews, and M&C Saatchi.
Mindspace’s co-working space will be located at HalaKoszyki, the trendiest dining and lifestyle destination in Warsaw. The iconic HalaKoszyki market is located at Koszykowa 63, Śródmieście borough, Warsaw. It was originally built in 1906, and later demolished. Griffin Real Estate acquired the complex in 2012 and completely revitalised the property, with the original Art Nouveau style and some of the original building’s elements. The new HalaKoszyki has a variety of concept restaurants, grocery shops, and an art exhibition. The project was awarded “The Biggest Business Achievement of the Year” prize during the Eurobuild Awards 2014.
HalaKoszyki is owned by Griffin Premium RE, a company operating in a REIT-like structure, listed on the Warsaw Stock Exchange that owns prime office and mixed-use high-street properties located in the centre or on the main streets of the largest cities in Poland.
