SAN JOSE, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, April 13, 2021 / -- ZenSpace, pioneer of the on-demand, flexible, smart meeting space today announced arrival today at Westfield Oakridge Mall.

This marks the second such partnership between ZenSpace and URW in the Bay Area, following the launch of a similar concept at Westfield Valley Fair Mall in Santa Clara, CA.

“We are excited to partner with Westfield Oakridge launch to continue addressing the need for ‘third space’ work areas between home and a traditional office for today’s growing remote and distributed workforce,” said Mayank Agrawal, CEO of ZenSpace. “The URW team shares our vision on how real estate operators can expand their offerings to serve their customer base, and we look working with them to help unlock the potential of people and places in San Jose."

“We are constantly seeking new and relevant ways to enhance our facilities and services for our guests,” said Julian Esposito, General Manager of Westfield Oakridge. “As we continue to move forward from the pandemic and toward greater mobility, ZenSpace allows us to provide a new mall experience for our guests who desire to work, shop, dine, and relax – all in the same place. ZenSpace SmartPods create a quiet space to conduct business without compromising their health and safety.”

The ZenSpace SmartPod represents the future of work - an on-demand workspace solution that facilitates business meetings and conversations anytime and anyplace. A wide array of features makes it state-of-the-art for use in public spaces such as shopping centers and other commercial locations, providing a modern workspace for today’s remote worker and business traveler. Key features include:

• Noise-reducing wall and insulation structure, with double-tempered, laminated glass.

• A mobile and web application that enables shopping center guests and visitors to reserve time in a SmartPod either remotely or on-site.

• Fully tech-enabled space, including WiFi access, power and USB ports.

“The Covid-19 pandemic has accelerated the trend for knowledge workers to work from remote locations outside the office,” Ted Simon, Chief Revenue Officer at Zenspace noted. “A Spring 2020 Gartner study among company CFO’s and Finance leaders indicates that 74% of companies will shift at least a portion of employees to permanent remote positions following the current Covid crisis, building on the surge in remote work even post-pandemic. The world has changed, and we are happy to be working in partnership with Westfield Oakridge to support this new work reality.”
