Are you struggling with sky-high rents? Many savvy entrepreneurs are now turning into a cost-effective way to tackle the conundrum - using a serviced office. Here are some popular FAQs that our clients will usually ask before they pick BRIDGES:
1. How Many People Can Your Serviced Office Accommodate?

Our serviced office can accommodate 1 - 6 people, and we can apply flexible arrangement if more working space is needed for more staff, therefore we can fit your need in space even if you are expanding your operations. We have over 100 workstations at Central Tower, Central with sea-view, peak-view, city-view and internal unit provided.

2. How Convenient Is BRIDGES’ Grade-A Location?

BRIDGES is located in the heart of Hong Kong’s CBD and it takes only 5 minutes from MTR subway to our Central location with direct access. If you are travelling from our Centre to Tsim Sha Tsui, it takes less than 10 minutes; if you are coming from Hong Kong International Airport, you simply need 30 minutes’ drive. The convenient prime location saves much of your travelling time and provides you with a prestigious business address to uplift your corporate image.

Certainly, limited office availability and robust demand keep the rent of HK’s CBD like Central the priciest in the world, significantly twice higher than Singapore, hence the entry into this prime district setting up a grade-A office is not easy at all. Especially for start-ups and SMEs, the most efficient and cost-effective way to own an exalted Central address could be getting help from a premier business centre’s serviced office to get started at a generally affordable cost, not to mention the great advantage for users that they don’t need to spend a lot of money on office renovation before moving in. These low barriers to entry into Central are favourable to most entrepreneurs in Hong Kong.

3. Is It Necessary to Sign a 1 Year Lease?

Not really. We value and strive to take care of our clients’ different needs and so we provide flexible lease terms from 1 day to 1 year for you to select, whereas most grade-A conventional offices require 2 years minimum lease commitment. Moreover, you can opt to upsize or downsize your office within our Centre when needed to fit your business needs in different economic environments, and as the company grows, your team’s diverse workspace demand can also be met by choosing different sizes of internal room for budget control or moving to an open-view unit with more spacious room for the expansion of your team.

With a 1 year lease signed, if you would like to terminate the contract during the year, you can do so by giving us 1 month notice and agreeing to forfeit the 2-months rental deposit. This will give you a very flexible option when you have sudden needs.

4. What Does Your Serviced Office Include?
