Mindspace, the rapidly-growing global provider of stylish and inspiring co-working spaces, has announced that it will be opening its second London location at 9 Appold St. in Shoreditch, in Q2, 2018. The new location is part of the Broadgate Quarter office complex in the vibrant city fringe market. Mindspace’s workspace will span the eighth and ninth floors of the building, and a total area of 3,800 sqm to accommodate over 900 new members.
Setting up shop in Shoreditch puts Mindspace at the heart of the capital’s upbeat and artistic atmosphere and creates the perfect backdrop for its members. Mindspace will establish itself directly adjacent to the new Amazon HQ and just a ten-minute walk from Old Street’s Silicon Roundabout, the centre of East London Tech City which is the third-largest technology startup cluster in the world after San Francisco and New York City. Mindspace Shoreditch is two-minute walk from Liverpool Street station, within few-minute walk of six other tube stops, and there are dozens of restaurants, bars, fitness clubs, green spaces, theatres and art galleries around.
Dan Zakai, co-founder and CEO of Mindspace said, “London is a great market for Mindspace’s upscale coworking offering and we’re determined to make our mark in the city. We see strong demand for our first London location at the Relay Building right above Aldgate East station, and are delighted to announce our second location in Tech City. Shoreditch’s trendsetting culture makes it one of the most desirable places to live and work in. Mindspace shares the same passion for arts and culture that is embodied in the neighbourhood, and we bring this to our workspaces and communities, worldwide. London’s Tech City attracts the world’s leading enterprises, startups, accelerators and VCs, some of which already call Mindspace a home for their business in other European cities. We’ll allow more and more movers and shakers to make their move on Tech City by becoming Mindspace members.”
