Office Bubbles: Hyd Metro Rail to offer flexible, remote co-working spaces at stations

Hyderabad: L&T Metro Rail (Hyderabad) Limited (L&TMRHL), as part of its transit-oriented development (ToD), has started a unique concept called "Office Bubbles" to offer secured, remote, co-working spaces. Through Office Bubbles, L&TMRHL aims to fulfill the surging demand for co-working spaces and locational flexibility of office spaces in Hyderabad.

ToD segment of Hyderabad Metro Rail has been creating vibrant urban spaces integrated with a high-quality transit system with a focus on enhancing the quality of life. ToD offers around 18.5 million sq. ft. of space for work, shopping, leisure, entertainment, and healthcare along with parking and circulation area.

Focusing on IT companies, the Office Bubbles concept offers a 'Hub and Spoke' model, enabling them to open strategically dispersed smaller offices across the city.

Close to 0.4 million sq. ft. will be dedicated to Office Bubbles for lease, encompassing 1,750 sq. ft. of two units across 49 typical metro stations and 5,000-30,000 sq. ft. of spaces at eight non-typical metro stations.

This concept is not only a natural and logical choice for start-ups but also large corporations progressing towards co-working spaces owing to the agility and flexibility it offers."
