WORQ To Open Two New Outlets This Year

KUALA LUMPUR: Coworking and flex space provider WORQ will open two new outlets this year and is on target to achieve 100,000 sq ft space by year-end.

WORQ officiated its latest coworking space in Sunway Putra Mall on the PWTC LRT train line.

Co-founder and chief executive officer Stephanie Ping said the two new outlets will be in Ampang Park and Kwasa Damansara, focusing towards connecting all of Klang Valley via transit-oriented coworking spaces.

“By providing strategically located flex-offices at transit-oriented developments, mainly along train stations, we are not only supporting a sustainable commuting culture but also empowering our transit system with productive working communities and by commuting between the transit lines daily, this increases the usage of our public transport system.

“Many of our coworking members have switched from driving to taking the trains to work and are more productive now, not just while they work in our spaces, but on the way to work, in between meetings all over town, and on their way back home,” she told reporters in a media briefing on Monday.

WORQ officiated its latest coworking space in Sunway Putra Mall on the PWTC LRT train line.

Spanning 20,000 square feet, this new upcycled coworking space stands as WORQ’s eighth outlet, and its seventh outlet in Klang Valley’s intercity transit rail system, WORQ is achieving its plans towards connecting all of Klang Valley via transit-oriented coworking spaces.

Transport minister Anthony Loke, who officiated the new outlet, said WORQ’s collaboration with Sunway Group and Prasarana Malaysia Bhd exemplifies Malaysia’s shift towards a transit-oriented community by connecting workspaces with transit lines.

“This strategic initiative makes commuting more efficient and contributes significantly to the country’s sustainability goals by reducing car dependency and improving employee well-being,” he said.

By linking these train lines with Google-like offices, WORQ has established a unique cloud office infrastructure. This infrastructure enables professionals to seamlessly move from one outlet to another, fostering a dynamic and flexible work environment.

This cloud office infrastructure enables local and foreign employers to easily recruit talent across the entire Klang Valley.

Sunway Malls & Theme Parks chief executive officer HC Chan said Sunway Malls is committed to leading with sustainability and delighted with this strategic partnership with WORQ.

“Through our collaborative efforts at Sunway Putra Mall, WORQ has skillfully demonstrated that thoughtful refurbishment can both preserve the environment and drive profitability.

“This initiative, apart from value-adding through the introduction of new forms of use-case formats for malls also set a new standard for the longevity of office spaces by reusing and repurposing existing fit-out,” he said.

The new WORQ outlet utilised the layout and creatively renovated it into a modern coworking space.

WORQ’s facilities at Sunway Putra Mall feature high-quality, overstocked construction materials from HOMA, setting a sustainability standard and serving as a leading example for other coworking industry players.

This upcycling exercise allows WORQ to revitalise existing infrastructure and spaces in Malaysia’s vast retail landscape to take advantage of the location and convenience of the mall.
