Industrious Partners on Coworking Space Atop IKEA in San Francisco
Ingka Centres, the sister company to IKEA, and Industrious have partnered to launch Hej!Workshop, a flexible coworking concept inside Ingka Centres’ San Francisco meeting place, located at 945 Market St. The second Hej!Workshop and the first outside Sweden, it’s set to open its doors in early 2024.
The co-working space will occupy the 46,470-square-foot top floor within the 250,000-square-foot 945 Market St., which also includes an IKEA store and other amenities. Industrious will operate the location and incorporate it into its global workplace platform, which includes more than 170 locations across 65 markets globally.
“The way we work is changing and our expectations of the workplace need to change with it,” said Jamie Hodari, CEO and co-founder at Industrious. “What sets Hej!Workshop apart is its remarkable optimism and the effort put into reimagining the office as a destination, where professionals can be inspired, productive and connect with their colleagues, without leaving behind the comforts of home.”
