Technopolis to become our new tenant in Book Building
Technopolis is expanding its network of coworking spaces dubbed UMA by Technopolis. The unique new workspace UMA Esplanadi will be opened on the third floor of the Book Building on May 2, 2016.
There are approximately 1,700 companies and 47,000 people working on Technopolis campuses. This has put Technopolis in pole position to pick up on the big changes coming to working life. Technology has enabled people to work wherever, whenever, and to choose the right balance of working alone and working together.
UMA Esplanadi is a professional working environment for businesses of all sizes. It offers workstations for a hundred people at a time, providing desks, meeting rooms, a brainstorming area and a zone for events. The UMA Esplanadi has three main work areas: a coffee corner for team work; desks for independent work and small offices. A host will be helping customers with their daily needs and will organize events and networking activities. With a single fee customers can use any UMA anywhere within the Technopolis network in 12 cities across five countries.
“UMA Esplanadi has been created in close cooperation with our customers. We are not just offering an office in the heart of Helsinki. We are offering a community where people from different fields can benefit from a super-cool, shared facility, high-quality services and each other. The unique history and status of the building, along with Technopolis’ tailored service concept, will make UMA Esplanadi a high-energy working environment”, says Terhi Aho, Concept Manager at Technopolis.
Stockmann feels that UMA will be an excellent fit with its philosophy. “We are always looking for cooperation that supports our quality offering and long-term strategy. Technopolis does justice to the building designed by Alvar Aalto and we’re sure that UMA will benefit our clientele too,” says Seppo Oksanen, Director of Commercial Operations at Real Estate division.
