Mainor Ülemiste to Open New Type of Booster Offices
In just three months, 80% of the innovative booster offices for growing companies have been already reserved in Estonia’s largest office building to be completed this autumn by Mainor Ülemiste. There will be no long-term binding contracts and the meeting rooms, kitchens and reception areas will be shared by several companies.
According to Margus Nõlvak, Chairman of the Management Board of Mainor Ülemiste, the new booster office concept of the Öpiku Building is based on what the businesses want. „I don’t foresee long-term binding contracts in the office space market in the future. Even today, companies want more flexible contracts, in order to manage their businesses more effectively,” said Nõlvak with confidence.
“We completed the prototype product about a year ago, when we made direct offers for short-term lease contracts for 20 such spaces in the first office tower of the Öpiku Building. Given the great success of our attempt, we decided to dedicate a similar area to booster offices in the superb Öpiku II office tower, to be opened this autumn. These offices will be made available in the open market,” Nõlvak added.
Teet Raudsep, Customer Experience Manager at Mainor Ülemiste, said that demand for offices with shared common areas had been really high and almost 80% of the offices had been taken up in reservations in just three months, with only a few still available before the opening. „The entrepreneurs are not ready to pay for meeting rooms that remain unused half the time or to spend time and money on furnishing and maintenance of the actual office or kitchen area,” Raudsep noted. “They want a really flexible but attractive solution in a place shared by other similarly active businesses,” he said.
The booster offices in the Öpiku II office tower to be completed this autumn, are designed for growing companies of 2-6 employees. The price for an office with two work stations starts from 250 euros per month and includes furniture, wi-fi and cleaning services. In addition to offices there is also a stylish common area that comprises the reception, kitchen and resting area, as well as five meeting rooms with state-of-the-art equipment that can be booked on an as needed basis. Once the second office tower is ready, the Öpiku Building will become the largest office block in Estonia.
