Paris, France – February 8, 2023 – WeWork Inc. (NYSE: WE) (“WeWork”), the leading global flexible space provider, today announced the opening of its new building in Paris, at 37 Avenue Trudaine. Spanning six floors and featuring a glass-dome atrium that floods the ground floor with natural light, this opening marks the company’s 20th location in the French capital.
A stone’s throw from the Sacré Coeur and the emblematic Rue des Martyrs, WeWork 37 Avenue Trudaine is located in the heart of the city in the 9th arrondissement. A dynamic, multicultural neighborhood, the 9th, well-known as a hub for tourists, is becoming an increasingly popular destination for companies and technology start-ups – earning its neighborhood nickname, Silicon 9e – who are recognising the value of destination workplaces in desirable locations.
French startup MyTraffic, which specializes in urban traffic analysis, will be WeWork’s first members in the space; taking over an entire floor to accommodate its 100+ employees.
Rebecca Nachanakian, General Manager of WeWork Southern Europe, Benelux & Nordic countries, says “WeWork 37 Avenue Trudaine reaffirms our commitment to Paris, and in particular, the 9th arrondissement which is known for being a quintessential Parisian district. As working trends continue to evolve, hybrid work models remain an integral part of return to work strategies. As a result, the office has become a destination for employees to not only work from, but enjoy the local culture, and amenities and shops nearby. What’s become clear is that the future of work and the future of the city go hand-in-hand, and we are proud to play our part as we mark this milestone with the opening of WeWork 37 Avenue Trudaine.”
Hakim Saadaoui, CEO of MyTraffic, says “ “WeWork 37 Avenue Trudaine is the perfect environment for a blossoming team: a high quality, service-led workspace located in the heart of Paris, with flexible lease terms and the option to scale our footprint as we grow.”
Delphine Bürkli, Mayor of the 9th arrondissement, says “The decision made by WeWork to open a fifth location in the 9th arrondissement, on Avenue Trudaine, confirms the strong appeal of our district for companies of all sizes – particularly tech companies – seeking well-connected, innovative workspace in a prime location. At the 9th City Hall, we are dedicated to the city of tomorrow, and will continue to pursue opportunities with key players, such as WeWork who are paving the way for the new world of work. More than ever, to meet the new ESG criteria and support an increasingly environmentally-conscious population, public and private players must move forward together to bring the office closer to home, and support a healthier work-life balance in this new era.”
