The international operator of office solutions IWG Plc will expand its flexible office network in the Ukrainian capital by three locations and enter the regions in 2021, Director of IWG Plc in Ukraine Yulia Lytvynenko told Interfax-Ukraine.
“In Kyiv, we have three locations in the negotiation process. With a good forecast, if everything goes well, two of them will be opened this year, another one next year. Outside the capital, there are two locations in Lviv, I believe they will be opened this year. Two more cities are at an early stage of negotiations, but openings are possible at the end of this year or early next,” Lytvynenko said.
IWG Plc is primarily interested in million-plus cities for expansion. “Odesa and Dnipro are interested, we are looking closely at Zaporizhia and Kharkiv. I think that Odesa and Kharkiv will be in the near future,” the company’s director said.
