India’s renowned co-working firm Skootr has recently leased 10,000 sq ft office space in the prime location of Central Delhi i.e. Connaught Place. The company is planning to launch 150 seats in the centre.
Giving more information on the above, Ankit Jain, founder, and joint managing director said, “As this is a prime location, therefore the rent of seats in the centre will vary from Rs 27,000-35,000 per seat per month,”
He further said that Clix Capital has already taken 75 seats in the centre as tenants. “Rest of the seats will be open to the market.” added Jain.
With this centre, Skootr has marked its presence in the national capital too apart from major NCR and cities across the country.
Launched as a startup, Skootr today offers thoughtfully designed, safe & secure, plug & play workspaces with 100% reliable technology and services infrastructure for growth-oriented entrepreneurs and corporates. The company provides co-working spaces to start-ups, freelancers, SMEs, BPOs as per their requirement.
With presence across Gurgaon, Noida, and Jaipur, the group is expanding itself rapidly across major cities in India.
According to a latest survey, these days many startups and other small companies prefer co-working spaces to conventional office spaces due to lower rentals. Hence, savings on operational costs and a more flexible work environment. A company can save as much as 30% on the operational cost alone. It also helps companies to save on other operational costs such as IT infrastructure, fitments, housekeeping, broadband connectivity etc.
Real estate services firm CBRE says that in the next few years, with office rents continuing to move up across India, the total space leased by co-working operators in tier-1 and tier-2 cities could touch 6-10 m sqft by 2020.
