Remote Space is a Birmingham commercial real estate company that provides shared workspaces for small enterprise start-ups. The design of the office space allows for: individual and shared offices; hot desking; meeting rooms and event functions. Remote Space is also fully equipped with the latest technological equipment.
Throughout the building there are a selection of coffee lounges and casual diners where customers can network with other like-minded entrepreneurs.
However, despite the promising interest and demand from the local entrepreneurial community, Remote Space are reporting comparatively disappointing figures. For example: Remote Space have stated that their attendance for the last financial year was 50,000 customers – down over 20% from the previous year.
The owners of Remote Space attribute this decline to the Corona Virus and the ‘lockdown’ imposed in Birmingham earlier in the year. The owners are, therefore, very apprehensive about the future – particularly if further restrictions are imposed.
