Open to Everyone
OFICINA HUB is open to the public and includes coworking space with smart interior and modern office and meetings infrastructure and a series of indoor and outdoor facilities and recreational areas. It has a newly refurbished high ceiling 730 sqm structure surrounded by a large green area and dedicated parking.
