Known as the “Paris of South America,” Buenos Aires is often recognized for its rich culture, flavorful cuisine, and, increasingly, as an ideal location for startups to grow. Business-friendly policies enacted by the local government with support from private organizations have given the vibrant city an economic boost, especially in the technology sector. Home to successful companies like OLX and Globant, as well as offshoots of tech giants like Facebook and Google, the Argentinian capital has become a global hub of innovation.
The ascent of Buenos Aires as a center for technology has given rise to more flexible work arrangements, like hot desks for freelancers, solopreneurs, mobile teams, and remote workers. Employers are given an affordable way to maintain company culture and boost productivity in remote teams; freelancers get the camaraderie and amenities associated with working in an office without the steep costs of leasing space.
WeWork’s hot-desk locations in Buenos Aires offer world-class views, proximity to the pulsing energy of a Latin American city with European flair, and ample opportunities for networking. Explore these five modern, fully equipped spaces that spark creativity and inspire success.
Hot-desking where the action is
The barrio of Retiro is in constant motion, with subways, trains, and buses carrying residents, tourists, and commuters in and out all day long. In addition to being one of the largest transportation centers in Argentina, it’s home to several five-star hotels, the gorgeous beaux-arts Galerías Pacífico mall, and the historic Plaza de Martín. A busy business district plus a multitude of dining and nightlife options make it an ideal neighborhood for both work and play.
WeWork Torre Bellini is one of the largest WeWork locations in the world, occupying 25 floors of dedicated space in Retiro. Boasting an elegant exterior and convenient location, this workspace is home to designers, corporate firms, lawyers, travel agencies, and tech startups. This dog-friendly building is just a short walk to public transit, and offers amenities like bike storage, ample outdoor space, and, for when you need a short break from work, games like shuffleboard, chess, and pinball.
Hot-desking with a view
Vicente López is a suburb situated on the Río de la Plata, with all the conveniences of life within the city limits. It is home to a variety of outdoor recreation activities, ample green space, and a multitude of dining and entertainment options.
Located on one of the most iconic thoroughfares in Buenos Aires, WeWork Libertador 1000 is conveniently located in the heart of Vicente López. Floor-to-ceiling windows illuminate the 14 floors of this stylishly designed space, where you can enjoy spectacular views of the river whenever you need a break or some inspiration. The common areas are spacious, but when you want a bit more privacy, you can visit the brainstorming room, balconies, or the alfresco rooftop. The building is just a short walk from the Mitre rail line and the Paseo Costero, where you can enjoy a stroll along the water.
Hot-desking in the Central Business District
The San Nicolás neighborhood, more commonly known as Microcentro, houses most of Buenos Aires’s financial district and many of its government buildings. Boasting grand architecture, a thriving business scene, and lively entertainment, it’s a vibrant and convenient location for companies of any size.
WeWork Corrientes 800 is as diverse as the neighborhood it calls home. At this workspace, you’re as likely to rub elbows with a world-class beverage distributor as you are with creative types involved in the performing arts. The thoughtfully designed conference rooms and common areas provide several opportunities for collaboration and inspiration. Nearby transportation, shopping, dining, and landmarks like the Obelisco blend convenience and fun.
Hot-desking to entertain clients
The ritzy neighborhood of Palermo, specifically the section known as Las Cañitas, is full of tree-lined streets, striking architecture, and thriving, innovative businesses. A culinary and fashion destination, it has one of the largest concentrations of restaurants and nightlife in Buenos Aires.
WeWork Andres Arguibel 2860 is the ideal location for working and entertaining clients. Conveniently located near the Ministro Carranza station, this workspace includes modern lounges, private offices, and ample conference rooms for client meetings. After hours, you can impress clients at the hippest, most fashionable spots in the city. Bike storage, a wellness room, and parking are included in this building’s multiple amenities.
Hot-desking to find investment
Straddling the Retiro and San Nicolás wards of Buenos Aires is Catalinas Norte, a sprawling, 19-building office park that houses some of the largest companies in Argentina and the world. For anyone who wants to start or grow a business in the region, this complex is the place to be.
WeWork Ing. Enrique Butty 275 occupies three of the 29 floors of the Torre Catalinas Norte building, featuring on-site staff and elegantly crafted work and meeting spaces. Its location provides ample opportunities for networking with potential partners and investors. This shared workspace is close to several bus lines, and includes both bike storage and parking, making any commute convenient and easy.
Whether its rubbing shoulders with finance professionals in San Nicolás, or exploring the restaurant scene in Palermo, there’s a neighborhood to suit your work style in Buenos Aires. Wherever you end up, hot-desking will help you meet and surpass your business goals, providing access to community, support, and focus-fueling workspaces.
Growing from a few to a few hundred employees takes strategy and the right space.
