There may be a new WorkSpace in town

Word on the street is that a new high-end shared office space may coming to town and they’re looking for office space. Palo Alto based Monolab|Workspace has received a request for 20 workstations in their proposed Vancouver location and this has fast-tracked their plans for a location North of the border. The big question now is whether they go Gastown or Yaletown? And, yes, they acknowledge that Vancouver already has a shared office space called WorkSpace.   

Monolab|Workspace is a network of open work places developed in cosmopolitan areas around the world. It is designed for small and large businesses looking for cost-effective ways to conduct business in a global and connected world, while meaningfully improving the business traveling experience of their collaborators. Monolab|Workspace offers all-inclusive packages starting at $1,500/month, without any setup fees nor long-term commitments. It provides a range of tools and services that would be out of reach for small companies, at a fraction of the cost of setting up dedicated offices in comparable locations. Monolab|Workspace is managed as a club, granting members from one location access to all other locations, at no extra cost. Monolab|Workspace is different from other executive suites or co-working facilities in many respects: dedicated desks, open spaces (vs. private offices), top-of-the-line equipment (including Apple iMac 24″ on every desk), and all-inclusive packages. Furthermore, 25% of the workstations available in every location are dedicated to travelers, allowing visiting members to benefit from the exact same equipment and services they enjoy back home.

Monolab|Workspace is the brainchild of Ismael Ghalimi – founder and CEO of Intalio, creator of, initiator of the BPM 2.0 movement, producer of the Office 2.0 Conference, organizer of the Extreme Productivity Seminars, and designer of the Redux Model 1. Best of luck office shopping Ismael – I’d go with Yaletown.
