The COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated the adoption of remote working globally. To help meet the growing demand for coworking space, HYCITY HUB in Richmond has officially re-opened for business.
Launched in 2019, HYCITY HUB provides a shared workspace for companies that require office space for three to five people, as well as meeting and event facilities. The spaces can be rented by the day or leased by the month.
With long-established roots in Hong Kong and Mainland China, the company offers ongoing consulting services that include business registration and legal advice, market analysis and strategy development for companies that want to expand their reach into Asia.
“Over the past few weeks I have seen a jump in demand for our space not only from freelancers, consultants, and small companies, but also medium and large companies that have what we used to think of as enviable office space downtown,” says HYCITY HUB Executive Director Victoir Wu.
“In a post-COVID-19 world, we believe the coworking demand will probably be led by larger organizations looking to decentralize work forces.”
To ensure a safe and hygienic workplace that will set their members at ease, HYCITY HUB is rolling out new health and safety practices. They will also be providing disposable face masks and hand sanitizer to clients. Their space will operate at limited capacity to ensure social distancing.
“Our members can rest assured that we are complying with governmental regulations and encouraging optimal hygiene standards,” Wu adds.
HYCITY HUB, in collaboration with Meiga Health Group, has also launched an online store to address the shortage of essential medical supplies and products in Canada. HYCTY HUB strives to deliver the highest quality of medical supplies by importing directly from certified factories that offer the highest quality of personal protective equipment at the lowest price.
