Starwood Retail Partners recently launched a flexible, multi-purpose work and community gathering space called ONESPACE in two of its retail centers. ONESPACE, which is being piloted at Capital Mall in Olympia, WA, and Plaza West Covina in West Covina, CA, will be available to rent for business-related meetings or social events.
“ONESPACE caters to today’s prevalent informal business culture and the growing demand for unique event experiences. The venue provides an alternate option and inspires event organizers and planners to start thinking outside the hotel ballroom. ONESPACE provides yet another option to bring people together whether for work or fun in a familiar, easy-to-reach destination,” said Catherine Loy, vice president of business development at Starwood Retail Partners. “ONESPACE is a relaxing yet inspiring space that can be organized in multiple ways to best serve the group and can be catered with food and beverage from coffee to cocktails.”
ONESPACE locations include 1,000 to 4,000 square feet of flexible floorplans that offer area businesses and residents convenience, a distraction-free space, food and beverage variety, and transparent and competitive pricing, all within a vibrant environment. These rooms can accommodate a variety of configurations and needs ranging from business meetings, training sessions and temporary office space to employee holiday celebrations, family reunions, birthday parties and community gatherings. ONESPACE has built-in amenities like whiteboards, flatscreen TVs and unlimited high-speed internet all included in the rental fee. Food, alcohol and other beverages are allowed in the space and each retail center offers numerous catering options.
“We’ve heard our business communities and neighborhoods asking for a local, accessible place to meet, work, play and connect; and ONESPACE grew from that,” said Loy. “The appeal of ONESPACE is that it provides a convenient, adaptable space that can be grand or intimate, to be utilized for whatever our markets need most. Overall, our goal is to offer shopping, dining and entertainment as well as an accessible destination for businesses, friends and family to gather.”
Inc. reports that offsite team building can lead to better communication through direct eye contact and observing body language. Offsites can also increase trust, camaraderie and collaboration, which in turn can improve a team’s efficiency and impact. ONESPACE provides the opportunity for local businesses and organizations to take full advantage of these offsite benefits.
