Workland will open Riga’s largest coworking space in Galleria Riga

East Capital Real Estate, the owner and manager of Galleria Riga Shopping Centre will invest more than 3 million Euros to convert 3.200 sqm into office space which will occupy the entire 5th floor.

“A convenient and enjoyable place, full of life is what we are striving for. Our aim is to create the perfect city within the city” says Zane Šulca, manager of Galleria Riga.

It’s a perfect match, more than 300 people will work, meet, eat, train, shop and do daily errands in Galleria Riga. The high-quality office space will be the most modern and flexible in Riga. It will offer spaces for both larger companies, but also for gig workers and smaller teams. This will be the third, and largest, Workland coworking office in Riga and the fourteenth in the Baltics.

“This is a new milestone for Galleria Riga. The integration of Workland turns Galleria Riga into a modern mixed-use asset and strengthens its role as a strong and sustainable engine for the city center. This is one of several important steps we are taking to create value for people working and living in Riga and for our tenants and investors. We are looking forward to the opening in 2024” says Maris Smiltenieks, Country Manager in Latvia, East Capital Real Estate.

“Workland’s coworking centre in Galleria Riga is not your average workspace,” says Indrek Hääl, founder and Chairman of the Board of Workland Group. “The location makes it convenient to take a break from work and hit the gym, get a quick bite in a cafe, or do some shopping, all without leaving the building”.

But convenience is not the only factor that makes Workland unique. Workland coworking centre is setting a new standard for workspaces with its beautifully designed interiors and the highest microclimate standards. The space inspires creativity, productivity, and collaboration among professionals from different industries.

Indrek Hääl asserts that Workland is at the forefront of the trend towards flexible work arrangements providing adaptable office spaces that can be flexibly reduced or increased based on the teamwork style and changing number of employees – a must for entrepreneurs. Scalable and flexible office solutions allow businesses to adapt to changing circumstances and stay ahead of the curve, something Workland is committed to enabling.

Workland Group is the region’s market leader in the network of coworking offices. There are 13 office centers in the Baltics, two of which are in Riga – “Workland Telegraph” and “Workland Verde”, five in Tallinn, five in Vilnius and one in Kaunas. Shareholders of Workland Group are the management of the company together with the private equity investor BaltCap.
