KMC Solutions, the country’s largest flexible workspace and staff leasing provider in the Philippines, has finally unveiled their newest serviced office location at the Armstrong Corporate Center in Salcedo village, Makati. The fully dedicated flexible workspace building signals a first in the office real estate industry, with 8 whole serviced floors, a ground floor café, and 7,400 sqm of leasable space committed to serving the clients and tenants of KMC. To celebrate this premiere, KMC held a small and intimate launch event for their community at the Armstrong Corporate Centre itself on September 30, 2021.
They also relaunched their hit musical event, KMC Sunset Sessions (formerly KMC After Hours) — a showcase of select up-and-coming local musicians, as well as host an online press conference that was livestreamed to their social media pages on the same day.
Identifying this new demand for scalable short-term and optimal work environments amid the workforce’s struggles of working in distraction-filled environments at home, KMC has continued to move forward in providing more options for workers’ ever-changing needs during this time.
Traditionally, flexible workspaces enter an agreement with a building’s management to get permission to operate and occupy certain levels on their premises. This makes it ideal for office workers and business owners who are looking into alternative options for office space but still desire to be in prestigious, secure, and credible business addresses.
With KMC’s Armstrong building however, it is a first in the office real estate scene for flexible workspace operators to put up an entire building of their own. The Armstrong Corporate Center has 14 levels in total with over 7, 400 sqm of leasable space and over 900 sqm per floor level. This makes it the largest serviced office facility at present in the Philippines, with its flexible workspaces occupying 8 floors of the building. Aside from offering the usual range of serviced office solutions — which includes coworking space, private offices and customized built-to-suit — what sets KMC Armstrong apart from the past office spaces KMC has opened around the metro is the increased scalability of its workspaces.
With more and more businesses looking to transition their workforce operations to a hybrid work setup, flexible workspaces such as the one in Armstrong Corporate Centre provide the perfect venue for companies to safely do this transition. Although the return to the workplace has been gradual and steady, interest in both commercial and residential property has increased once again. Industrial and high traffic zones are showing early signs of the Philippines’ real estate recovery and despite most of business’ move out of the traditional office space, there has been reinvigorated interest in serviced offices as swing spaces, scaled down options, or second workplaces for companies that want to de-densify their headquarters.
The new demand for hybrid workspaces has been proven with numerous businesses and clients having already moved into the Armstrong building’s office spaces. Companies like Asia Premier One Source Inc., Zuellig Pharma Asia Pacific, and Unifin Inc. have recently moved their onsite operations to serviced offices of their own and are now operating in the newly launched building.
