Tired of working from home? We’re right there with you, sista.
Thankfully, HBC is launching SaksWorks: the most exclusive new social club for lifestyle, wellness, and work.
It’s literally more elite than getting a table at Commonground on Friday night. *Gasp*
This first-of-its-kind business brings flexible and elevated workspaces, amenities, and lifestyle-oriented experiences to New York City and beyond.
SaksWorks will deliver various amenities at select locations, including stylish work and meeting spaces, artisanal cafes, restaurant space, retail, fitness studios, and programmed events for members.
The company’s five initial locations span the Tri-State area, including Manhasset, LI, Greenwich, CT, Eastchester, NY, and Manhattan at Brookfield Place and Saks Fifth Avenue New York flagship.
“HBC is a forward-thinking holding company at the intersection of technology, real estate, and operating companies. Saks Fifth Avenue has long been associated with elevated and highly personalized service. With SaksWorks, we extend this nearly century-long legacy to this new operating company to meet the moment of hybrid work,” Richard Baker, Executive Chairman and CEO of HBC.
At the helm of the company is SaksWorks President, Amy Nelson. Nelson joins SaksWorks from The Riveter, where she raised $30 million to open ten coworking spaces for working women across the country. Ms. Nelson is also a columnist for Inc. and the co-host of iHeartMedia’s “What’s Her Story” podcast.
“The pandemic has changed so much about our lives, including how we work and where we live. I’m thrilled to join SaksWorks in its efforts to serve the millions of Americans who now work remotely from their suburban homes or who find themselves as part-time commuters in this hybrid world,” Amy Nelson, President of SakWorks.
SaksWorks has tapped service providers such as Restaurant Associates, performance and recovery studio BDY SQD, commercial real estate company WeWork and others, to ensure an elevated and seamless client experience.
“We all deserve a beautiful place to work and gather. As a working mom of four young children, I think I speak for millions when I say that I’m tired of Zoom calls in the closet. SaksWorks brings together work and life in a way that has never been done before. In the coming months, we will broaden our offerings to redefine the idea of the classic rec center into modern community hubs,” Amy Nelson.
Inaugural locations will open in September 2021 with plans to expand across North America. SaksWorks will offer its members an all-access pass, enabling them to visit a hub and spoke network of various urban and suburban locations.
Additionally, SaksWorks and WeWork members will have access to both SaksWorks and WeWork workspaces for six months from location opening.
SaksWorks is drastically changing the WFH experience, and we are here for it.
