Doha 03 Oct. 2018
Alfardan Properties has announced the launch of its landmark partnership in an event in Doha on Wednesday with Workinton, a Turkish-owned international company to provide fully-furnished co-working spaces and virtual and serviced offices. This landmark project marks another milestone in the leading luxury property developer’s ongoing efforts to widen its spectrum of offerings to cover the needs of a new generation of entrepreneurs and workforce in the country.
Through its strategic collaboration with Workinton, Alfardan Properties has also signaled its intention and demonstrated its seriousness to carve a niche in the steadily growing local serviced office, co-working, virtual office, and meeting room services sector in a bid to sustain its unparalleled edge and competitive advantages in the fast-evolving modern real estate industry.
Mohamed Sleiman, COO of Alfardan Properties, said: “Building on the spirit of innovation, Alfardan Properties continues to venture out into new undertakings to engage with different investors from various demographics. This strategy is aligned with Qatar National Vision 2030’s key pillars of economic, social, human, and environmental developments. Within the context of our partnership with Workinton, we seek to help address the demand from startups and small and medium enterprise sector, which is the backbone of the local economy, for smaller and serviced offices by offering them our quality properties. Our collaboration enables us to provide new options to our clients instead of just leasing bigger office units alone. We are excited by this new undertaking as we look forward to the success of our cooperation with Workinton.”
The partnership comes amid the increasing popularity of co-working, virtual, and serviced offices worldwide. This trend has steadily taken the world by storm, including Qatar, considering the fast-rising demand from workers and entrepreneurs who work from home or who still have no office spaces. Often, they lease an office area or a meeting room to conduct their business meetings or a co-working space to finish their projects in an office set-up.
Pinar Massena, CEO of Workinton, said: “Workinton shares with Alfardan Properties the same level of commitment to excellence and leadership as evidenced by the high-quality products and serviced offices we both offer. Our common unwavering dedication makes our ties stronger and more valuable for us and our target market. Through our partnership with Alfardan Properties, Workinton has made a major step towards securing the largest share in Qatar’s expanding serviced offices model, co-working, virtual office, and meeting room services market. This is another important chapter in the history of our organization and we are all eager to see where this partnership will lead us as we strive to meet the unique needs of our clients.”
Workinton offers co-working, virtual office, ready-to-use offices and meeting room services occupying over than 15,500-sqm space to more than 15,000 members and over 2,000 companies across its 17 global business centers. Its clients own practical and economic workplaces where they can easily focus on their work, while creating new collaborative opportunities.
