The co-working provider rent24 is aiming to set up Germany’s biggest combined co-working, co-living 7,500 square metre campus in Hamburg by 2018, the company announced Monday (February 20). The co-working, co-living spaces and micro apartments will be housed in a building complex together with an existing supermarket and gym. A food market will also be set up on the ground floor.
Comfort for international business people
Robert Bukvic, Founder and CEO of rent24 GmbH, said: “Our concept offers the right solution for the demands and needs of our target group.” The co-working concept addresses start-ups, entrepreneurs and established companies. The co-living aspect offers international business people greater flexibility and comfort. He added: “In the initial stages, many start-ups have to travel often and need plenty of flexibility and a transparent cost structure. That’s exactly where we come in.”
Co-working and co-living on six floors
The rent24 building in a former industrial site in Hamm-Mitte has been structurally restored. Six floors will be available for co-working spaces with open-plan offices, single offices and event rooms and variously sized apartments for co-living. The building will also have a bar and lounge for members.
Co-working in Hamburg
More and more co-working spaces are emerging across Hamburg. The Tel Aviv-based Israeli company Mindspace opened a 4,000 square metre co-working space in the Alten Klöpperhaus at Rödingsmark in mid April 2016. In January, the Otto Group opened its first co-working space called Collabor8 in Hamburg-Bramfeld for employees.
