Mindspace Opens Second U.S. Location In San Francisco’s Emerging East Cut Neighborhood
Mindspace will make its San Francisco debut in September in the former HQ of Standard Oil and Chevron.
One of Europe’s most prestigious coworking providers, Mindspace will occupy three floors and over 36K SF at 575 Market St., in the Market Center complex. The opening of the San Francisco location comes after the company opened its first U.S. location in Washington, D.C., earlier this month. The San Francisco site will service approximately 600 members, compared to 500 members in D.C.
The building is at the heart of one of San Francisco’s rapidly evolving new neighborhoods, The East Cut. An effort to unite the Rincon Hill, Folson Street and Transbay areas under a new identity and sense of place, the neighborhood has become a destination for tech companies and young professionals. The workspace will feature a mix of dynamic startups and enterprises seeking growth and an environment that attracts and retains top millennial talent.
The East Cut is similar to other central business districts throughout the country, like FiDi in lower Manhattan and the Loop in downtown Chicago, which have transformed from 9-to-5 commercial districts into areas where both residents and office workers can live, shop and play. Near numerous shops and activities, including the Crocker Galleria, Union Square and Westfield Mall, Mindspace at Market Center will capitalize on this transformation. It places members in the heart of the innovation ecosystem among a community of influential companies.
Mindspace’s San Francisco location will be a few blocks from the new Transbay Terminal, a 1,400-foot-long center that will be a terminus for California’s high-speed rail project, a retail hub and a new public space. A rooftop public park will be open to the neighborhood and complement Mindspace’s own collection of lounge spaces.
As Mindspace prepares for its San Francisco debut, it has created a tool to assist leasing representatives with sign-ups and commissions: an interactive broker portal to help manage leasing opportunities.
Brokers will soon be able to use the portal to market these amenities and track sales opportunities. Mindspace’s Brokers Referral Platform will allow brokers to collaborate with Mindspace to meet the needs of their clients in the ever-evolving coworking market. Platform features include new opportunity alerts within Mindspace’s global network, access to a library of marketing collateral to showcase to clients, quick onboarding of legal documents, tracking of the sales process and review of sales commissions and rewards.
As more large companies opt for coworking locations, having a dedicated broker portal to facilitate these deals will help spotlight available office space across Mindspace facilities.
Since launching in 2014, Mindspace has created high-end, bespoke coworking space to accommodate businesses of all sizes. Options range from private offices to lockable suites for larger enterprises. Members enjoy luxe private offices, artistic lounges, meeting rooms equipped with the latest technology, fully stocked kitchens and community events like networking parties and happy hours.
