On April 11 Toong, the first co-working space chain invested by Indochina Capital, announced the official launch of its largest facility—Toong Minh Khai in the heart of Ho Chi Minh City.

Located in the heart of Indochina Capital’s economic hub in Ho Chi Minh City, Toong Minh Khai sets a new benchmark for what it means to work and live harmoniously within today’s fast-paced, highly-urbanised cities as Toong continues to rapidly expand its network into Laos and Cambodia, meeting the strong demand of the Indochina’s fast-growing markets.

The newest facility marks the evolution of Toong’s product offerings since 2015 which goes beyond a network of high-quality, inspirational physical workspace.

Putting the human at the centre of the Toong experience, for the first time, a workspace for creators incorporates into its premise a concept store, a specialty coffee lab, and a curated library coupled with exclusively curated soul-nurturing programmes, wellness enhancement, and self-transformation activities customised meticulously for all members.

According to Indochina Capital CEO Peter Ryder, the potential of co-working in Vietnam is enormous and he really believes that this concept in Vietnam is more than a trend for dynamic young people and millenials.

This concept is not for just working but it is a way of future, it is also co-living, co-dreaming, and bring more energy for people in a real community.

Ryder added that the co-working space available through Toong will reach 60,000 square metres at the end of next year from the current 10,000sq.m in Vietnam, Cambodia, and Laos.

Meanwhile, Duong Do, founder and CEO of Toong, said that the company was in the business of nurturing talents and cultivating characters, so people can innovate at their best to serve others and make society better.

“The opening of Toong Minh Khai allows this vision and mission of our organisation to materialise in reality,” Duong said.

Situated on the 2nd and 3rd floors of a landmark printing factory that belonged to Vietnam News Agency, Toong Minh Khai covers a total area of 1,700sq.m.

To transform the space, Toong joined hands with renowned Swiss-based G8A Architects (formerly Group8) to infuse greenery, serenity, and contemporary spirit into the building, yet still keep the original soul of its modernist style intact.

With Toong Minh Khai now officially opened, Toong now operates a total of five locations in Vietnam and is developing four other large-scale locations in four cities in Vietnam, Cambodia, and Laos at the same time.
