Office spaces in Cape Town are a dime a dozen.
If you’re looking, or have done so recently, you’ve probably grown weary of number-crunching, and trying to work out exactly how many square metres and how much internet you’re getting for your money.
That’s all well and good, but should an office space really just be about those cold, hard facts, or do you want to be situated in a building that actively curates a thriving business environment?
I’ve yet to meet someone who has taken a walk around the Ideas Cartel building on 113 Loop Street and not been impressed, and the same is true for their 1 Sand Hill Road and 71 Waterkant Street locations.
Schuyler Vorster, the founder, says that Inner City by Ideas Cartel offers scalable workspaces for businesses that need an office conducive to productivity and opportunity, by facilitating a coworking community of like-minded people.
He knows what businesses are after when it comes to office space, with private, two- to three-people offices starting from R12 500 a month.
The serviced offices, with seating ranging from six to 12 people, include:
Yes, an app that basically doubles as your own private digital concierge.
Order food and coffee to your desk, book a meeting room, get your laundry sorted, order groceries, get a limo to come and pick you up – we kid you not, the app does it all.
There are also hotel rooms, a rooftop pool, and the sort of buzzing energy that comes with running your business alongside everything from a Fortune 500 company right through to start-ups.
A glimpse of the lifestyle, while you’re currently sat at your cramped desk alongside some stranger you’d rather not share office space with:
It’s good living. If you want to be shown around any of the three locations, you can book a tour here. Then, when you want to snap up some office space, mention that you read about it on 2oceansvibe and score your first month’s rent FREE.
Yup, your first month is on us, because you’re special.
If you really want to supercharge your experience, you can also join the Cartel Members Club. Members enjoy access to the members’ lounges, gyms, bars (including the iconic Frontier), restaurants and rooftop pools.
You’ll also get to attend Cartel Connect events free of charge, as well as receiving preferential booking and discounted rates across all of their boutique hotels.
In short, when you call one of the Ideas Cartel locations home (or your business does), you’re immediately plugged into a network created specifically to foster an environment of excellence.
Do yourself a favour and book a tour, because office space shouldn’t just be about counting the square metres.
