Common Ground, Malaysia’s premier co-working space is set to open its very first branch here in the Philippines.
The very first Common Ground co-working space will be in the 2,300-square-meter penthouse of the newly-launched Arthaland Tower in Bonifacio Global City (BGC) and is patterned after the structure of their offices in Malaysia. Their co-working offices in Makati and Ortigas is set to be launched within the year.
Common Ground is in partnership with MVP Global Infrastructure Group (MVP Global), a private investment firm present in Malaysia, Vietnam, and the Philippines
In the Philippines, there are over 40 co-working spaces scattered around the key business hubs of Makati, Bonifacio Global City, and Ortigas with an average rate ranging from P400 – 1,200 per day.
The flourishing co-working space industry in the country is what Common Ground saw as an opportunity to put up their aesthetically designed and laid out co-working space that will be strategically situated in the bustling location of Bonifacio Global City.

Common Ground launched its flagship co-working location in Damansara Heights, Kuala Lumpur Malaysia in March 2017. Since then, they’ve opened in various locations across the country and their co-working community now has around 2000 members.
Carrying two prestigious titles – one of the most Instagrammable co-working destinations and Malaysia’s largest co-working space, — Common Ground boasts a vibrant, fresh, and young vibe that they promise to bring to the Philippines.
“At Common Ground, co-working means more than a desk and internet connection in a communal workspace but building an engaged community and vibrant ecosystem to help ambitious, fast-growing companies take business to the next level,” said Ana Lucia Aguila, Common Ground Community Manager.
Together with their in-house team of acclaimed designers and architects that can design office spaces according to the customers’ preferred layout, furnishings, brand identity, business specifications, and IT needs, Common Ground can also provide staff with years of experience managing workspaces to ensure that the office operations run smoothly and efficiently.
Common Ground operates based on what they call Five Lifestyle Pillars.
