Finding office space can be difficult. It’s not a simple decision to make considering there are so many variable involved.
Where your employees live, what’s the cost, what are the amenities, how central the location is are all factors that will shape your decision.
The CBD area in Singapore is one of the most popular locations not only in Singapore. But all of the world. The Raffles Place location has some of the most iconic buildings there. This attracts some of the biggest businesses in the world.
It is a good location, but is it the best location for a younger company? The rents are expensive, the traffic is heavy. It can be congested sometimes packed with so many businesses and people. It’s also not sustainable for the long term unless the company is extremely well funded.
There is another location that is sure to capture the attention of startups and SMEs.
It is Tampines!
