BEIJING, June 18, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Ucommune International Ltd. (NASDAQ: UK) ("Ucommune" or the "Company"), a leading agile office space manager and provider in China, today announced that its Nanjing Nuofen Magic Cube asset-light project (the "Project") achieved a 97.39% occupancy rate as of May 31, 2021, improving significantly from the Project’s inception on November 26, 2020. The Project has approximately 4,252 square meters of office space and 690 seats and is located in Nanjing’s Xinjiekou area, the city’s geographic, commercial, and cultural center. This strong performance further demonstrates Ucommune’s ability to successfully partner with landlords and help them to rapidly increase their occupancy rates via its asset-light model.
Since initially launching in 2015, Ucommune has become a valuable partner to property owners, businesses, and business communities worldwide. By leveraging its potent brand influence and platform resources, Ucommune provides landlords with a full range of agile office space management services, covering interior decoration and design, investment promotion, intelligent systems, community activities, value-added services for enterprises, and more. Meanwhile, Ucommune integrates its resources in such areas as government, academia, and entrepreneurship to provide its partners with effective marketing channels and domestic policy guidance. These advantages have allowed Ucommune to foster increasingly prosperous business environments across the globe and empower its partners to further cultivate their competitive advantages.
By utilizing its potent brand influence and operational expertise, Ucommune increased Nuofen Magic Cube’s occupancy rate to near full capacity in just 6 months. Moreover, as part of the Project, Ucommune improved the standardization of its processes for workspace construction, property adaptation, and occupancy rate growth. Prior to partnering with Ucommune, Nuofen Magic Cube lacked a primary landlord, which created a management vacuum throughout its operations and limited the property’s occupancy rate to less than 50%. After beginning to cooperate with Ucommune in November 2020, Nuofen Magic Cube had achieved an occupancy rate of 65% by the end of the year. After just 6 months of the cooperation, Nuofen Magic Cube had already benefited significantly from Ucommune’s high brand recognition and efficient space management, attracting an Internet company giant to move into the property and achieving an occupancy rate of 97.39%.
The manager of Nanjing Nuofen Magic Cube commented, "We chose to cooperate with Ucommune based on the Company’s significant brand recognition, investment promotion, and operational capabilities. As a result of Ucommune’s robust agile space management services, we have successfully enhanced our overall flexibility and optimized our total occupancy rate. Ucommune’s expertise in real estate and retail has also served as a significant advantage, enabling us to modernize our office spaces and attract more high-quality tenants in turn."
Dr. Daqing Mao, Founder of Ucommune, commented, "By reducing costs, upgrading facilities, and streamlining building management services, we have created a very attractive value proposition for landlords. Meanwhile, our asset-light model has proven to be highly scalable and capital efficient. Looking ahead, we plan to continue refining and standardizing our agile space services. This will allow us to help more landlords optimize their property space management systems, increase their occupancy rates, and enhance their profitability."
