In the heart of Euroméditerranée, a new generation workspace opened its doors in March 2018.

Neighborhoods are changing, and so is the way we work. In March 2018, a new-generation working space opened its doors at the heart of Euroméditerranée. The brainchild of Covivio's expertise in the office and hospitality sector, Wellio Marseille offers businesses a new type of high-end offering comprising a wide variety of flexible spaces. This offering is all about pro-working: spacious offices, comfort, ease of use, luxury services and design, and connectivity in “Calypso”, a Wiredscore-certified building strategically located in the very heart of the business district. For working, networking over lunch, or meeting up after work, Wellio has made quality of customer experience its watchword in welcoming young start-ups and large groups. And whether you need an office for an hour, a day, a month...

The lively, creative Euroméditerranée business district is strategically placed for generating wealth, and for the past few months has been giving companies the chance to establish themselves at Wellio.

It offers a reinvented 2,300 m2 pro-working space which enables companies of all sizes to dip a toe in the market without committing to a commercial lease. Here, the traditional office rental model has been swept away by a service-based philosophy.

The space has been designed to accommodate every configuration, as Well Manager Sarah Bony explains: “Our 165 workstations are divided between shared and private offices, with monthly per-workstation pricing.” Companies can take advantage of three meeting rooms upstairs, and a space for projects and meetings. Do you want a fun or serious vibe? That’s up to the individual company.”

Enjoy Café: a business community catalyst

Infosys, Devoteam, Expedia and the Grenoble-based “Cerf à Lunettes” communication agency have already taken office space for their teams here. “Wellio is a solution for companies looking to expand their business into the Aix-Marseille region. Thanks to the recent partnership with Provence Promotion, companies placed here by the agency can take advantage of a one-month test period for our services. We can also provide solutions for the growing teleworking community. For example, companies in Aix can offer their Marseille-based staff the option of working here at our offices – delivering a number of benefits in terms of quality of life, reduced pollution, and so on,” Sarah says. And the precious time this saves could, for example, be used to form partnerships with other companies on site… and maybe even submit joint responses to invitations to tender! Such meetings generally take place over a glass at the Enjoy Café: a friendly place which is helping to gradually build a business community with a thirst for working together.

Wellio is also a space with a focus on events, featuring a flexible, well-equipped space able to accommodate 30 seated and 70 standing attendees, meeting rooms which can be flexibly configured to suit specific uses, and a platform area for working in project mode.
