"After announcing earlier this year it plans to open its first Ottawa location on Slater Street, international co-working giant Spaces says it has two more facilities in the works at the Zibi mixed-use waterfront development.
Spaces, a division of Switzerland-based International Workplace Group, said Thursday it’s taking a total of 55,000 square feet of real estate on both sides of the Ottawa River and expects to open the new facilities next year.
Wayne Berger, CEO of IWG’s operations in Canada and Latin America, called Zibi a “once-in-a-lifetime” project. Ottawa’s Theia Partners and Toronto-based Dream Unlimited are developing the 34-acre mixed-use neighborhood, which is eventually expected to house 5,000 people and contain eight acres of riverfront parkland along with more than a million square feet of environmentally sustainable commercial and retail space.
“It has everything that a monumental new development should have: bold vision, historical roots, unbelievable location, cutting-edge sustainability and the potential to redefine an entire region,” Berger said in a statement."
