Awfis already has five other co-working centres in Kolkata. With the two new centres, it now has 3,000+ seats capacity with over 2.5 lakh sq ft in the city, the company said.
“As we emerge into the new normal in a post-pandemic world, we are witnessing increasing demand from even the most traditional companies with centralized models. This demand has largely been fueled by the shift in preference towards the distributed workspace concept and the adoption of hybrid model of working,” said Amit Ramani, CEO and founder, of the company.
Awfis currently has 75 operational coworking centres with 40,000 seating capacity. It has presence in 12 cities in India across Mumbai, Pune, Kolkata, Chennai, Bangalore, Hyderabad, Delhi, Gurgaon, Noida, Ahmedabad, Indore and Chandigarh.
