Zurich, 23 October 2019 – Coworking provider Westhive continues to expand: In the second quarter of 2020, the Zurich-Wollishofen location will open at Seestrasse 353. It will offer 150 workstations in an interesting location close to the lake.
Due to the high occupancy of the existing locations, Zurich coworking pioneer Westhive AG is pushing ahead with its expansion: Westhive Wollishofen, the third location, will open in April 2020 with a further 150 workstations. This will increase Westhive’s capacity to a total of 600 workstations.
The new location at Seestrasse 353 is particularly attractive for people living on the left bank of Lake Zurich: It is only a 3-minute walk from the Zurich-Wollishofen SBB railway station and 5 minutes from the Wollishofen motorway junction. Connections to the city centre are provided by five tram lines and three bus lines, which stop practically in front of the building. The centre of Wollishofen, with its shops and restaurants, and the lakefront are within walking distance.
Westhive Wollishofen follows the same concept as its predecessor, offering individual workstations in open-plan offices that can be rented on a daily or monthly basis, as well as self-contained team offices. The offer is complemented by meeting rooms with high-quality technical equipment, which can also be booked by external persons.
«In our experience, the location of a coworking space is absolutely crucial to its success,» explains Bruno Rambaldi, who is responsible for the company’s expansion strategy. «The property at Seestrasse 353 is ideally located in many respects. The decision to move from Zurich West to Zurich South was therefore an easy one for us.»
The Westhive AG opened its first coworking location at Hardturmstrasse 161 in April 2018. Together with the Westhive Library at Zurich’s Hürlimann Areal and the Westhive Skyspace, there are now approximately 400 workstations available with a complete service infrastructure. Prominent Westhive members include strategic partner Swiss Startup Group, Valora Digital Innovation Lab, the Innovation & Ventures Lab of the AMAG Group, LafargeHolcim Startup MAQER, as well as over 25 different startups from various industries.
