IWG launches 10,000 sq ft Alty flex space 

Patrick Properties’ 249 Altrincham is the newest location for flexible workspace brand Regus, as parent company IWG eyes opportunities in the suburbs. 

Situated on the ground floor of the 27,000 sq ft Church Street building, Regus 249 North is part of a drive by IWG to “meet the sharply rising demand for top class flexible working space outside of city centres”, the company said. 

“More and more, workers want to live in a 15-minute city, where everything they need, including where they work, is within 15 minutes of their home,” said Mark Dixon, chief executive and founder of IWG. 

“Locations like Regus 249 North are a response to that demand. Introducing workspaces into commuter towns like Altrincham helps build self-sustaining communities, generates economic activity and creates better solutions which support hybrid working”. 

IWG is to launch its 10,000 sq ft Altrincham Regus, delivered in partnership with the building’s owner Patrick Properties, later this month. 

Jordan Kennedy, director of Patrick Properties, said: “We are delighted to be bringing a first-class product offering in Regus to 249 Altrincham, offering the ultimate flexibility to people and organisations that need it.  

“We believe 249 is an unrivalled product with a state-of-the-art fitness centre and changing facilities. The attention to detail internally has been further boosted by the involvement of Cheshire designer, Uber Interiors.” 

The new Regus-managed space comes at a time of increased demand for IWG. 

IWG said the number of enquiries about its space has increased by 27% in the last six months, compared to the same period a year earlier.

Couldn’t think of much more worse than a “15-minute city”. I pity the people who chose to live their lives in the same 2 square miles all day, everyday.
