79 Robinson Road’s Coworking Space Targets Finance & Tech Firms
SINGAPORE – Local developer CapitaLand has ambitious plans for Bridge+, a 56,000 sq ft flexible workspace in the 29-storey 79 Robinson Road office building, reported Singapore Business Review (SBR) earlier this week.
Apart from providing “workspace flexibility”, the coworking space occupying 3 floors at the Grade A office tower is focused on creating a flourishing FinTech community by providing facilities that foster activities & collaborations.
“We envision 79 Robinson Road to be a destination in the Singapore Central Business District (CBD), where leading members of the international finance and technology communities can gather regularly to confer and collaborate as a community,” said CapitaLand Singapore’s Managing Director for workspaces and residential, Chew Peet Mun.
“Our flexible workspace solutions and amenities by Bridge+ 79 Robinson Road provided the apt infrastructure and services to accommodate such needs.”
In particular, the coworking space will facilitate collaborations via networking activities and knowledge sharing events. In line with this, Bridge+ has teamed up with top ecosystem players here, including the Asian Institute of Digital Finance, ASEAN Financial Innovation Network, and the Singapore FinTech Association.
Besides offering “purpose-driven” workspace solutions that improves “connectivity and productivity” of staff and their companies, Bridge+ 79 Robinson Road also features a lounge, social areas, 25 meeting rooms, and event spaces that accommodate 30 to 200 individuals.
Interestingly, the event spaces on Level 2 are equipped with infrastructure, including equipment and tech solutions, which enable organisers to hold hybrid events that can be attended in-person and virtually.
CapitaLand also gave “greater attention” to ensure the safety and wellbeing of the occupants in Bridge+ 79 Robinson as they return to their workplaces. For instance, the developer has applied anti-microbial disinfectant on high contact areas. It has also provided “contactless access and reduced unnecessary touchpoints” via the use of mobile apps and facial recognition to enter building access points, amongst others.
Furthermore, the coworking space offers occupants relaxing views of the sea, particularly of Marina South Pier, as well as the nostalgic heritage shophouses in the CBD. There are also verdant spaces on 79 Robinson Road’s rooftop garden and on the sky terrace on the 21st floor.
