Workbar Sets January Opening of Wellness-Focused Location in Boston's Back Bay
Nation’s first WELL-designed “healthy” coworking space slated to open January 2018
Workbar, Boston’s coworking space trailblazer, has announced plans to open a 12,000 square foot space located at 399 Boylston Street in the heart of Back Bay in January 2018. Centrally located right outside of the Arlington subway stop on the Green Line, Workbar Back Bay will features copious natural light and distinct “neighborhoods” for different working styles. Workbar’s newest location will be the first coworking space designed to meet the exacting WELL building standard to promote the health and wellness of its members.
“The Workbar Back Bay location represents our commitment to design innovation and its pivotal role in fostering a diverse coworking community,”
said Workbar founder and CEO Bill Jacobson.
“Our members are at the forefront of the collaborative economy, so our job is to make sure we create holistic workspaces that provide unparalleled connectivity.”
In partnership with longtime Workbar collaborators Analogue Studio, Workbar Back Bay incorporates wellness features into seven concepts: air, mind, water, nourishment, light, fitness, and comfort. In addition to ten private offices, phone rooms, nine conference rooms, a Café, multiple breakout meeting spaces, and free access to the building’s gym, the space’s features include:
- Cutting-Edge Smart-Lighting Systems by Osram
- WELL-managed energy efficiency and water conservation
- Smart heating and cooling sensors that adjust room temperatures based upon the number of occupants in the room and an advanced under-floor air system
- Ultra-modern construction pollution management systems
