Amsterdam-based coworking company Spaces has officially opened the doors to its first Canadian location in Toronto at 180 John Street.
The company, which currently has 60 locations in 25 countries around the world, was created around the concept of community and shared ideas. Each Spaces location is a destination for people who think and dream big – forward thinkers, innovators and game changers.
Following a recent report from CBRE that found Toronto’s tech talent has outpaced New York and the Silicon Valley area combined, the Amsterdam company turned to Toronto for its latest expansion.
“Spaces is redefining the way work is done, providing a contemporary, social and inspirational environment with a real focus on community,” said Martijn Roordink, co-founder of Spaces.
“Toronto being a world-class city – dynamic, culturally vibrant, and entrepreneurial – we knew this was where we wanted to open our first location in Canada. Spaces gives Toronto’s top entrepreneurial talent an inspiring place to work and meet with other people who believe in the power of a collaborative, community approach to idea generation and business growth.”
The new Spaces location is in an eight-story heritage building with over 46,000 square feet of space. The new co-working space will feature collaborative areas, team rooms, co-working space, phone booths, meeting rooms, incredible views of the city and fully furnished private offices. Members will also have access to a global network of over 3,000 workspace locations.
