The region's first co-working space in a mall will open in Abu Dhabi, with the fit-out completed by Al Tayer Stocks.
CLOUD Spaces is due to open its doors in August and will offer a base for people to work and collaborate.
As well as professionals who want to drop in to the space, it will also provide a place for Yas Mall retailers to host meetings, training sessions and more.
Al Tayer Stocks completed the work taking into account the latest health and safety measures and social distancing requirements.
It hopes to attract businesses and people with a focus on retail, fashion product design and emerging brands and will also offer services similar to an incubation hub for start-ups, including support to get trade licenses and open units, mentoring programs and the ability to host product showcases.
Saoud Khoory, executive director of retail, Aldar Properties said: "We welcome the addition of CLOUD Spaces to Yas Mall, another first-of-its-kind model in the region and a response to the changing needs of Abu Dhabi’s commercial landscape.
"With growing demand for flexible working spaces across the UAE, CLOUD Spaces will serve as a hub to support the growth plans of existing tenants and future tenants alike, as well as the wider business community.”
There will be drop-in options as well as monthly and annual plans, with all offices and work pods equipped with tech, a phone number and support staff.
Members will also be able to use meeting facilities, photo and recording studios as a café managed by Drop Coffee.
Malak Smejkalova, general manager at CLOUD Spaces, said: “A number of local and international businesses have already signed up, with many more in the pipeline. As an office space designed for the future, [we are] poised for further expansion in the UAE, the wider region and internationally.”
