WORQ Launches Eighth Co-Working Outlet at Sunway Putra Mall with Full Occupancy

WORQ launches its eighth co-working outlet at Sunway Putra Mall in Kuala Lumpur with full occupancy, offering diverse amenities and fostering sustainability. Positioned near public transportation hubs, WORQ’s strategic expansion aims to meet the growing demand for collaborative workspaces in Kuala Lumpur’s bustling city center.

26 March 2024 – WORQ, a leading provider of co-working and flex space solutions, inaugurated its eighth outlet at Sunway Putra Mall, marking yet another milestone for the company. Since its opening in January this year, the outlet has boasted full occupancy, signaling a strong demand for collaborative workspaces in the vibrant heart of Kuala Lumpur.

Occupying a sprawling 20,000 square feet area, WORQ’s latest outlet at Sunway Putra Mall hosts a diverse array of tenants, including technology firms, financial technology (fintech) companies, travel agencies, and digital nomads participating in Malaysia Digital Economy Corporation (MDEC)’s DE Rantau program. Notably, this outlet is strategically positioned adjacent to the Klang Valley’s intercity transit rail system, with connectivity to the PWTC LRT station and the Putra KTM station.

At the launch event, WORQ’s CEO and co-founder, Stephanie Ping, highlighted the company’s commitment to fostering a network of convenient workspaces within proximity to public transportation hubs. Ping emphasized the positive impact of this infrastructure on productivity, noting that many members have transitioned from driving to utilizing trains for their daily commute. Minister of Transport, Anthony Loke Siew Fook, praised WORQ’s strategic approach, stating that it promotes sustainable commuting practices and aligns with Malaysia’s environmental goals.

The Sunway Putra Mall outlet offers a wide range of amenities, including private offices, dedicated desks, hot desks, meeting rooms, and event spaces. Ping also underscored WORQ’s sustainability efforts, revealing that a significant portion of the outlet’s fittings were upcycled from a previous retail space, with materials sourced from overstock construction materials to minimize waste.

Clement Chen, CEO of Sunway Real Estate Investment Trust (Sunway REIT), expressed enthusiasm for the new outlet’s contribution to the mall’s footfall and revenue generation. He noted the trend of co-working spaces incorporating amenities like pantries and entertainment areas to enhance the working environment.

Looking ahead, WORQ is set to open another outlet at Intermark in Kampung Datuk Keramat, Kuala Lumpur, in July, further expanding its footprint in the city’s dynamic landscape. The Intermark mall’s connectivity to the Ampang Park LRT and MRT stations underscores WORQ’s commitment to providing convenient and accessible workspaces for professionals across Kuala Lumpur. – ref: The Edge
