theDesk to open fifth Hong Kong location in Sheung Wan for Q4

Co-working space theDesk is adding a fifth location to its body of Hong Kong premises.

Set to open in Q4 of 2019, the new space, it will be located at the Strand 50 property, Sheung Wan, (currently Bonham Trade Centre, to be renamed effective from 1 September 2019) owned by real estate investment trust Sunlight REIT.

“We are thrilled to partner with Sunlight REIT on this new location of theDesk, which underscores our commitment to offering an agile work environment that answers to the fast-changing pace and evolving needs of businesses of all sizes,” said Thomas Hui CEO and co-founder of theDesk.

“This partnership is also a strong testament to the trust we have earned from established, well-respected companies such as Sunlight REIT, and a recognition of our vision and capability in fostering an environment that brings mutual benefits to our members, neighbours and landlords in various market cycles,” Hui added.

Spanning across seven floors in the building and totalling 29,000 square feet, the office includes the addition of a staircase that connects the lobby to the second floor, featuring a renovated terrace with ample communal and conference areas.

Along with its private offices, dedicated desks, hot desks, and event spaces, theDesk has positioned the new office as a space to connect its members with tenants in close proximity to the building.

“While theDesk represents bridging traditional and new economy businesses, Strand 50 signifies our progress with the times. This new name symbolises our modern take on property management, from the design in our alterations to an easy-to-remember brand identity, which we hope will showcase the crossover of tradition and modernity,” said Victor Wong, head of asset management of Sunlight REIT.
