PHILADELPHIA, May 2, 2022 – JLL announced today that Flex at Chesterbrook, a new flexible office and coworking space located within the Chesterbrook office campus near Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, is now open. The space was built by Rubenstein Partners (“Rubenstein”), a vertically integrated real estate investment adviser focused on value-added office opportunities and owner of the Chesterbrook complex and is currently managed and operated by JLL Property Management’s newest offering, Flex by JLL.
Flex at Chesterbrook will offer members shared workspace solutions through various options, including coworking, virtual address, private office and customizable suites, as well as meeting room rentals. The property’s fully furnished offices comfortably hold up to six people, while the custom suites are designed for larger teams, offering a private workspace for up to 50 people. Membership amenities consist of enterprise-grade designed spaces with ergonomic furniture, fast wi-fi with access to a dedicated VLAN, high-quality acoustics, monthly allowances for meeting rooms and printing, dedicated on-site team for mail handling and secretarial services, access to mothers’ and wellness rooms, phone booths and more for a monthly all-inclusive price and no long-term agreements. Campus amenities include access to The Circuit, a new amenity space featuring a fitness center, food hall and outdoor lounge areas.
Located on the second floor of 851 Duportail Rd., the space is situated in Chesterbrook Campus, one of the region’s largest workplace destinations totaling 1.1 million square feet. It is connected to Chester Valley Trail Circuit and provides nearby access to other green spaces, including 3,500 acres at Valley Forge National Historical Park, Wilson Farm Park and Little Valley Creek and Paths. Berwyn, Wayne, Devon and Malvern are proximate to the park, and it is a 10-minute drive to King of Prussia. Local SEPTA and Amtrak rail lines with Chesterbrook shuttle to and from the Paoli station, and Amtrak provides direct train access from New York City and Washington, D.C. Additionally, tenants have easy access to I-76, Route 202, Route 422 and Route 30. Gateway Mall is two miles from the property and Philadelphia International Airport is 25 miles from the property.
“As a former resident of Philadelphia, I’m proud that Flex by JLL will play a part of the tremendous growth and transformation of the King of Prussia and Wayne areas,” said Jacob Bates, Head of Flex by JLL. “Together, with our partners at Rubenstein, we at Flex by JLL are incredibly excited to bring a new offering of flexible and creative space to the Chesterbrook campus and the community as a whole. This collaboration will create an environment of engagement, connection and experience that is much needed following the last couple years.”
“The addition of Flex at Chesterbrook enhances the already strong amenities at the Chesterbrook complex and offers a new option for small businesses looking to secure quality space in this region,” said Brian Simel with Rubenstein. “We are pleased to team up with JLL to introduce this unique offering that will benefit the property as well as the local business community.”
Rubenstein acquired the 1.1-million-square-foot, 14-building portfolio of Class A office properties at Chesterbrook in 2019 and has since reimagined and repositioned the campus with a $50 million capital improvement plan.
