House Be continues to grow. The Northern Swedish co-working company is now expanding into Tullmagasinet in Umeå. The new co-working space will encompass 3,800 square meters and accommodate 400 members based in Umeå, as reported by Fastighetsvärlden.
"Umeå is a city with a thriving business environment where we aim to contribute to further growth," says Olof Pergament, CEO of House Be.
Tullmagasinet, also known as Tullkammaren, is owned by the real estate company Campus X and will now be adapted for co-working operations.
House Be has grown rapidly since its inception in Åre in 2017 and is now also present in Luleå, Skellefteå, Örnsköldsvik, Härnösand, Sundsvall, Hudiksvall, Östersund, and now Umeå. The demand for House Be's existing co-working spaces in Umeå has been so significant that they have chosen to expand within the city. Occupancy in Tullkammaren will begin on February 1, 2024.
"Here, we have the opportunity to create the ecosystem of offices, meetings, services, and inspiration that we want to offer our members and their networks. Moving into the entire property, an iconic building like Tullkammaren, feels fantastic," says Olof Pergament.
Last year, House Be opened four new units totaling 6,000 square meters in Skellefteå, Umeå, and Hudiksvall. With the addition of Tullkammaren, House Be will oversee a total of approximately 17,000 square meters.
