Filinvest Land Inc. (FLI), a prominent Philippine developer, and KMC Community Inc. (KMC), a global co-working space provider, have jointly launched Our Space Solutions Inc. (OSSI).

This collaboration marks a significant move in meeting the increasing demand for co-working spaces in the Philippines. The initial OSSI sites are located in Axis Tower One, a prime office building within Filinvest City’s Northgate Cyberzone.

The joint venture agreement between FLI and KMC encompasses the establishment, operation, development, management, and maintenance of flexible workspaces. This involves providing private serviced office seats and co-working arrangements within commercial buildings across the Philippines.

Tristan Las Marias, president and chief executive officer (CEO) at FLI, stated, “The surge in remote work has reshaped office space dynamics significantly.” He added, “Our partnership with KMC, a leading figure in the co-working sector, enables us to meet this growing demand with innovative solutions under the Our Space Solutions Inc. brand, while also offering alternative rental solutions to enhance occupancy of FLI and FREIT office spaces.”

KMC brings its extensive experience in designing and managing vibrant co-working communities to the collaboration.

Michael McCullough, CEO at WorkSpace Solutions and co-founder of KMC Solutions Inc., expressed excitement, stating, “We are excited to partner with Filinvest Land Inc. to introduce OSSI. By merging KMC’s global network and expertise with FLI’s established presence in the Philippine market, we are confident that OSSI will lead the co-working space industry here.”

OSSI currently operates in Filinvest REIT’s Axis Tower One in Filinvest City, Alabang, and plans to open more co-working spaces in Filinvest Land’s Makati, Quezon City, and Pasig City office properties.

Maricel Brion-Lirio, president and CEO at Filinvest REIT Corp., commented, “We are pleased to welcome OSSI as a valued locator at Axis Tower One. This innovative partnership perfectly aligns with the dynamic and forward-thinking atmosphere we aim to foster within our office buildings.”

The launch of OSSI represents a significant stride in providing flexible and collaborative workspaces for Filipino businesses and professionals, especially with the rising adoption of remote and hybrid work models.
