The ivory elephant in the coworking space, WeWork is an American coworking brand with a staggering amount of investment and spaces in just about every city in the world. They made a big splash last year when they acquired Shanghai’s homegrown naked Hub, folding it into their coworking empire, which includes 18 locations around town.
Their headquarters on Yanping Lu is spacious, airy and bright thanks to its big central atrium and plethora of windows. Granted, some of them look directly onto a brick wall, but others are a fish tank, so there’s a bit of everything. They have complimentary mouthwash in the bathrooms, which is either top-notch and/or overbearing attention to detail. The location is also great, with at least two dozen decent F&B spots within walking distance.
Price: Priiicy. This is a vanity coworking spot. For your “statement” hotdesk you’re paying 2,300rmb/month, or 3,100rmb/month for a dedicated desk. Private offices start at 3,500rmb/month.
