Location is key in Brussels, as there are traffic jams; businesses will want to be close to public transport, local amenities and any clients or partners.
The serviced office market continues to develop as new providers enter the market, and coworking spaces are popular.
Many areas – Schuman in the European Quarter or Avenue Louise — are increasingly populated, which will lead to more development on the outskirts.
Serviced offices offer businesses flexibility along with attractive prices.
According to Instant’s specialist local consultant, Weweck Kakker, one of the best areas to find office space is the European Quarter, as it's buzzing with opportunities, and close to potential clients and partners.
Brussels is one of the few places in mainland Europe where coworking is more popular than serviced offices, starting at around €300 per month.
For serviced offices, prices start at around €700 for a private office, and around €500 per workstation.
Prices will vary according to location and requirements.
Costs are inclusive of amenities, which can cover Internet, meeting rooms, IT and administrative support, lounges and kitchens, car parking, videoconferencing and AV equipment, among others.
The requests are varied – as well as the co-working spaces, we also receive many requests for private offices.
Instant offer a great variety of flexible office solutions across a large range of sizes, and are able to accommodate most enquiries, from one person through to 100 or more, depending on the specifics.
Serviced office providers can be flexible with the layout of the workspace, and are happy to discuss partitioning to fit a particular requirement.
