Imagine an office space in the heart of a thriving digital community in Beirut, fully serviced, with all the perks and amenities you can think of. Zoom out of your modern office space, equipped with high speed internet, and envision the community of shared green spaces, cafes and eateries, interesting people and a baby foot table to help you unwind. This is BDD, a cluster of more than 150 companies of all sizes and 1,700 professionals, from different industries.
The types of offices, for every professional, industry and company size in Beirut
BDD includes different types of spaces for multinational organizations, support organizations, tech startups, scale-ups, NGOs, as well as service providers. Given the very central location of BDD, professionals are connected to all parts of Lebanon. Today, BDD caters to small companies (teams from 3 to 9 people), medium-sized companies (10 to 30 employees) and large organizations, utilizing multiple floors (with 30+ employees).
The BDD community also includes smaller furnished offices, to ease the moving in process. Moreover, for bigger office spaces, BDD offers support on the design aspects and interior layouts, to help clients bring their vision to life.
When renting an office in BDD, tenants can operate at all hours, which helps companies who work across different time zones and across the GCC. The office spaces are connected to high speed internet which increases efficiency rates, given the ongoing crisis. The fully serviced offices help tenants and entrepreneurs focus on their goals and employees, while the BDD team runs the show behind the scenes.
Efficient interior design layouts help clients maximize the rented space. This comes with the help of the shared spaces including kitchens and bathrooms, and also reduces costs by opting for a smaller office, while still enjoying all the amenities. The modular spaces are also ideal for companies that are growing and need a landlord who can keep up with their space requirements.
Flexible fee structures to settle facility management fees
The all-inclusive options offered by BDD allow tenants to pay a one-time fee that covers costs related to the office. This entails one invoice to cover the services needed for the team to work effectively. From cleaning, to filing taxes (municipal tax and property tax), paying electricity and generator bills, as well as facility management and maintenance services. With affordable pricing packages, this helps reduce the total costs for resident start-ups and companies.
Serviced community, filled with amenities
BDD’s tenants have access to all facilities, including meeting and training rooms of all sizes. Every tenant is eligible for a specific quota per month for free and a 50% discount on any additional hours needed.
They are also given access to a range of services, including HR services that support businesses in their growth.
Some of the amenities include: a gym, eateries, equipped event spaces, garden areas and outdoor spaces, social lounges and a basketball court.
BDD’s is expanding, doubling its capacity
When BDD first opened its doors in 2012, it was comprised of one building. A few years later, BDD’s community now houses 10 buildings, marking the completion of Phase A of the project. In light of the growing demand for a fully digitized community in Beirut, a new addition to the master plan, BDD1227, will be completed soon, doubling BDD’s capacity. BDD 1227 will offer international organizations and multinationals seeking to join a vibrant community, state-of-the-art experiences, in a district where innovation and creativity meet.
