A FLEXIBLE workspace firm with locations across the world is to open a site in Altrincham.

IWG is opening Regus Altrincham in Church Street's Lynnfield House in partnership with entrepreneurs Brian and Jordan Kennedy at the end of this month.

A four-storey site of around 950 square metres with 24-hour access and security, the flexible workspace is aimed at established businesses and start-ups alike.

It also includes barista coffee, a bike hub and a fitness centre with its own changing facilities.

Regus Altrincham is part of IWG's plan to open 1,000 locations in 2022 alone, as the demand for offices outside the traditional city centres continues to rise.

Church Street's Lynnfield House is a few hundred metres from Altrincham Interchange, as well as other attractions in the town such as Altrincham Market.

Mark Dixon, the chief executive of the firm, said: "For several decades, we have been at the forefront of hybrid work, empowering people to work more productively and conveniently.

"More and more workers want to live in a '15-Minute City', where everything they need, including where they work, is within 15 minutes of their home. Locations like Lynnfield House are a response to this demand.

“Introducing workspaces in commuter towns like Altrincham helps build self-sustaining communities, generates economic activity and creates better solutions to support hybrid working."

Jordan Kennedy, the director of Altrincham's Patrick Properties, added: “We are delighted to be bringing a first-class product offering in Regus to Altrincham, offering the ultimate flexibility to people and organisations that need it.

"We believe it is an unrivalled product with a state-of-the-art fitness centre and changing facilities. The attention to detail internally has been further boosted by the involvement of well renowned Cheshire designer, Uber Interiors.

"With a space being let already off plan, this is testament to the team of designers, contractors and brand that we are building."
