DUBAI – With just months to go before Expo 2020 Dubai, Maple Leaf Business Center is all set to revolutionise the office space market in Dubai by launching affordable luxury serviced offices and co-working space in a prime business location for new age entrepreneurs, startups, SMEs, and large, medium and small companies operating in the UAE.
Offering considerable savings to tenants and landlords, the concept provides a number of benefits and easy solutions for all stakeholders by bridging the demand-supply mismatch.
The Maple Leaf Business Center model – branded as Billionaire Office – is also poised to become Dubai’s fastest growing network of co-working space and serviced business centers. With more than 200 desks in operation and 1,500 desks in the pipeline, Billionaire Office would soon have multiple centers across Dubai and Delhi, India.
The concept offers a highly vibrant community for startups to thrive in, with members getting exclusive access to networking community events besides a mentor network that supports members in various aspects of their business.
Located on the 17th floor of Iris Bay Tower, Business Bay, the brand new Maple Leaf Business Center premises was inaugurated by Ramdas Athawale, Minister of State for Social Justice and Empowerment, Government of India, in an exclusive opening ceremony attended by distinguished guests and the media.
The launch of Maple Leaf Business Center comes at a time when demand for luxury serviced offices and co-working space in Dubai is at an all-time high due to the fast approaching Expo 2020 Dubai, enhanced digital connectivity that allows millennials and others to work remotely and as businesses increasingly seek to reduce office overhead costs typically associated with traditional office acquisition and amounting to as much as 70 percent.
With over 700,000 square feet of flexible and co-working space currently available in Dubai, Danish Sharif, Managing Partner, Maple Leaf Business Center, said: “Serviced offices and co-working space are very much in demand in the UAE as all businesses do not really need a traditional physical office to operate from. All they need is a dedicated space to meet their clients and transact business, with recourse to meeting rooms. For only Dh500 a month, we are offering the flexibility of using the prime office space at a prestigious location in Dubai’s throbbing business district”.
Sharif also pointed out that by virtue of being a tenant in a reputed business centre, a small business owner, startup or SME, is able to network constructively with fellow tenants, thereby profitably enhancing their own business.
Office space industry analysts point out that it is only in the past two years that the co-working space model has come into its own in Dubai and is projected to grow in double digits until 2030 when Dubai’s status as an international business, trade and commerce hub is firmly cemented.
Colliers International reports that over half of employees in the UAE – consisting primarily of millennials – work remotely every week, with 50 percent doing so for at least three days a week. This trend is backed by Dubai witnessing a steep demand from large corporate multinationals, entrepreneurs and SMEs for flexible workspaces that offer plug-and-play options and quality services.
Maple Leaf Business Center features a total area of 13,000 sqft, including 50 luxury serviced offices, two dedicated meeting rooms and extensive co-working space; all fully furnished with elegant, ergonomic furniture, and offers tenants not only affordable luxury business space and amenities, in a prestigious location in Dubai – without compromising the quality of services – but also exclusive monthly packages.
