WeWork, a platform that provides space, community, and services to help people make a life, not just a living, announced on November 26 its upcoming second and third locations in Ho Chi Minh City, at Sonatus, opening in November, and Lim Tower 3, opening in February.

The new locations demonstrate a continued confidence that builds upon the momentum from its first location, WeWork E.Town Central in District 4.

Branching out from E.Town Central, the two new WeWork locations are located in Ho Chi Minh City’s District 1, the vibrant central business district. Sonatus is at 15 Le Thanh Ton, while Lim Tower 3 is on Nguyen Dinh Chieu.

WeWork has established a strong presence in Southeast Asia over the past two years, since opening its first location in Singapore in 2017. It now boasts major footprints in Vietnam, Singapore, Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, and the Philippines.

Ho Chi Minh City has rapidly become a major business hub in Southeast Asia, creating strong demand for WeWork’s collaborative space, which offers enterprises and businesses an integrated environment blending community, design, culture, and technology.

“Sonatus is excited to work with WeWork on our new building,” said Ms. Thuy Hoang, Manager of Sonatus. “We value high-quality, environmentally-friendly construction, which is aligned with WeWork’s vision.”

“With its modern member base, WeWork will bring a fresh, driven atmosphere to Sonatus’s community. We hope for more cooperative opportunities with WeWork in the future, and we wish them success with their business plan for expansion in Vietnam.”

The vibrant community found at WeWork E.Town Central, opened in March, is in line with the company’s commitment to redefining the nature of work, having welcomed a diverse group of members, ranging from large enterprises and small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) to startups and freelancers.

Members cut across varying industries, including PostCo, a new, easy, and convenient parcel service that also has a presence in WeWork Equatorial Plaza in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

“Choosing WeWork for our Vietnam office was the ideal choice, as it allows us to easily connect with enterprises and other like-minded businesses in WeWork’s dynamic shared space,” said Ms. Melisa Wang, COO and Co-Founder of PostCo. “This experience also translated when we scaled up our operations in Kuala Lumpur. By giving us the agility to scale our business across markets, WeWork enables us to stay flexible as we focus on growing our local business.”
