The 10,000 sq ft extension of The Great Room at One George Street has been 100% taken up even before its opening at the end of this month. The Great Room co-working space will therefore occupy the entire floor plate of 25,000 sq ft on the 10th floor of One George Street.

This is a far cry from a year ago when The Great Room first started operations. Occupying half a floor of about 15,000 sq ft, it opened with just 30% occupancy, according to its co-founder and CEO Jaelle Ang. “[Occupancy] was much lower than we had projected.” However, the space was fully taken up within four months, she adds.

 

The Great Room is a hospitality-inspired workspace

 

The Great Room has secured a second location at Pontiac Land Group’s Centennial Tower in the Marina Centre area. The 36,000 sq ft space spans two floors and is slated to open before end-4Q2017.

Overseas expansion

On Sept 20, The Great Room announced its first overseas location — 30,000 sq ft located at the newly built Gaysorn Tower in the heart of Bangkok’s CBD. It is scheduled to open in 1Q2018.
