A new office centre in Langley has opened to offer flexible workspaces for businesses not wanting to sign long-term leases.
Regus has opened a second-floor complex in the Carvolth business park area at 86th Avenue and 201st Street, and Langley Township Mayor Jack Froese cut the ribbon at the official opening on Thursday.
This is the first such centre opened in the Fraser Valley, although the company already has seven around Vancouver and neighbouring communities.
"What it's really about is flexibility," said general manager Declan Murphy.
"We had a lot of demand from our current and prospective clients looking for an alternative in the valley so they didn't have to make the daily commute into Vancouver,"
"We were looking at a lot of locations in Langley and were very pleased to find the location we did as it's a great access point being right off the
Trans-Canada Highway and very accessible to all the neighbouring cities." The company offers spaces for as little as three months at a time.
They supply amenities for everyone working on the floor, including a receptionist answering calls, a kitchen, meeting room, coffee bar, gym, and a drop-in lounge for networking with others working in the building. Flexible work spaces have been on an upward trend over the past decade for companies that only need a central office temporarily or for special projects. Individuals who need an office seasonally can also use them instead of a home office.
This centre opened its doors a month ago.
