Daybase, a hybrid work company, launched its first location in New Jersey. The 5,000-square-foot street-level retail space in Hoboken offers a variety of space types, both bookable and unassigned, designed for individual and group work activities. The spaces are available completely on-demand, with bookable spaces reservable by the hour through the Daybase mobile app.
The company, launched by a team of former WeWork executives, is developing a network of its on-demand workspots in neighborhoods and communities across the country, to create a purpose-built third space, between home and the office, for the post-pandemic hybrid or remote worker.
“We created Daybase for the times when your office is too far, but home is too close,” said Daybase CEO Joel Steinhaus. “Employees are rejecting a return to the five-day commute. However, they need a place that offers the functionality of the office, with the convenience of being down the street and available when they need it. In Hoboken, we are excited to serve residents and local businesses.The opening of our first location represents step one in our long-term plan to build a national network of close-to-home workspots.”
“I am excited to welcome the first Daybase location to the City of Hoboken,” said Mayor Ravi S. Bhalla. “I know Daybase will serve as a vital hub for our vibrant community of creators and entrepreneurs where they can come together and collaborate or work individually away from the chaos of the office or their home. I am sure Daybase will be a well-utilized asset for not only residents of uptown Hoboken but residents across the City.”
Daybase Hoboken, located at 1450 Washington Street, offers members unlimited access to the Daylounge, with additional credits available for bookable spaces. The Daylounge has open, unassigned seating for quick tasks and casual conversations, while bookable spaces serve a set of activities that have proliferated during the pandemic — quiet study space for focus work, private space for video conferencing, and larger configurations for group collaborations. Non-members can also book time at Daybase through the app.
“The Daybase model allows companies the opportunity to reimagine the workplace as an ecosystem of tools oriented around the needs of their employees. Post-pandemic, providing autonomy, flexibility and choice has become table stakes in the war for talent,” said Daybase COO Doug Chambers. “Hoboken is an ideal community for Daybase, home to many New York City commuters and local companies alike.”
The first Daybase will be followed by locations in Harrison, N.Y., in Westchester County, and Westfield, later this year. Through Daybase’s franchise model, the company will partner with local owners to develop locations across the country, close to where the hybrid and remote workforce lives.
