The developing office market entails the changing expectations of tenants renting office areas. The services which are available in the buildings and make every-day life easier are becoming a standard. What is the offer of the modern offices?
A massage... during a lunch break?
Many offices provide their tenants with a service of hairdressing and beauty salons during a break or after work. The example is the office complex situated in Gdansk – Alchemia, where the Atelier de Beaute hairdressing and beauty salon occupies the area of the size amounting to ca. 220 sq. m. on the ground floor of the building which constitutes the second phase of Alchemia. The offer of the salon is available after work and during a break. The tenants are provided with the “lunch” offer, which includes short treatments lasting ca. half an hour such a face massage with the use of algae. – Such beauty treatments constitute a perfect break during an intensive day, but they can also precede important business meetings, allowing to start them with much better well-being – says Lidia Rytlewska, the owner of the Atelier de Beaute hairdressing and beauty salon opened in the Alchemia complex in Gdansk. The clients of the salon can also benefit from the offer of daily SPA. – We would like to create a unique place in the unique surroundings of the office complex. Taking the current pace of life and every-day duties into consideration, a chance of easy access to a wide range of hairdressing as well as beauty and relaxing treatments in close proximity to a work place will certainly be an attraction and great facilitation for many people – sums up Lidia Rytlewska, Atelier de Beaute.
Something for physically active people
Fitness club is another kind of a service available in many offices. The major investment of Ghelamco Poland – Warsaw Spire – offers, for instance, a fitness club of the Polish brand Calypso. It is located on the fifth floor of the 220-meter-high building on the area of over 1500 sq. m. Sometimes the location of a given office encourages to sport activity after work. The examples are: Tarasy Grabiszyńskie situated in close proximity to the fitness club, or SkyRes Warszawska situated in close proximity to the bicycle path, which additionally offers special changing rooms and showers for bicyclists.
The sport offer provided by the offices is not only limited to the fitness clubs or the facilities for tenants. People who consider dancing as the best form of physical activity can appreciate the offer of Pasaż Pokoyhof. The investment of Immobillo Group offers a dancing and ballet school.
Do laundry or go for a trip
At present, a lot of basic and every-day matters can be done in the modern offices. Thus the popularity of the parcel lockers, the points of currier service, or the points where tailoring services are provided, is still increasing. For example, the users of Q22, a building realized by Echo Investment in Warsaw, can benefit from, for instance, a laundry owned by Eko-Top.
However, the range of services in the offices substantially exceeds the most basic products. For instance, Best Flights, which operates in the previously mentioned Q22, offers a complex service of business and tourist trips for both institutional and individual clients. Such extension of service offers in the offices by non-standard companies has a positive impact on the comfort of users of the office buildings.
