New co-working concept to make U.S. debut

The co-working workspace revolution is coming to a mall in Atlanta.

Luxury workspace provider No18 has signed a lease to debut its first-ever U.S. location at The Shops Buckhead Atlanta. Slated to open in fall 2018, No18 will occupy nearly 32,000 sq. ft. of space at the open-air center. (Owned and managed by OliverMcMillan, The Shops Buckhead Atlanta spans six city blocks, and features more than 50 stores and restaurants along a streetscape setting.)

Described as a members club for businesses, No.18 will offer a range of curated, flexible workspace options in an upscale, sophisticated environment. No18 members will have access to a members lounge, premium private offices and dedicated desks. All members will be able to take advantage of the concierge-level services, fully equipped meeting rooms, and a luxe event area to host meetings and gatherings.

“The demand for flexible workspace options continues to rise and there is an increased desire for environments that offer thoughtful design and elevated work experiences,” said Anneliese Reid, marketing manager for The Shops Buckhead Atlanta. “The arrival of No18 will provide Atlanta’s thriving business community a sophisticated space to connect and grow.”

No18 was founded in 2012, in Stockholm, Sweden. It is part of IWG, a global operator of flexible workspace providers whose various brands operate nearly 3,300 locations across 1,000 cities and towns in over 110 countries.

“Atlanta has solidified itself as a city that fosters best-in-class talent and a destination for technological innovation,” said Michel Gordin, founder and CEO of No18. “The Shops Buckhead Atlanta was a natural location choice for our entry into the United States. The site, and the city where it resides, embodies the spirit of our workspace ethos – a sanctuary where productivity, inspiration and style converge.”
