Colony in the media
Colony has been lucky to receive vast media attention form online and offline publications alike.
Here are links to the media coverage of the launch.
“The bosses only care about how this will affect their bottom line, and I have an argument for that. I can pinpoint to them how Colony can save money which is in terms of staff retention. How much money have they lost when their turnover rate is high?” he added.
The concept behind KL’s newest co-working serviced office entrant Colony is reflected in its design, as it offers various perks to its tenants, including a nap area for some quick shuteye, a massage room where a certified masseuse can be hired on an ad-hoc basis, an exclusive lounge with high ceilings and full length windows, and access to a rooftop gym and swimming pool where tenants can work out with a full view of the KL city skyline.
Aimed at creating an office environment where employees can build lifestyles surrounding it, Tiah said the company is not looking to compete with other co-working spaces
Audrey Ooi, the co-founder of Colony said “We have a strong belief that work doesn’t need to be all drudgery, that motivated employees perform best when they are happy. Work takes up at least 40 hours of our lives each week and it needs to feel great for us to do great. This is where Colony comes in.”
Colony is packaged with a diversity of co-working spaces and serviced offices in thought, whereby open co-working areas are split into a hot-desk and reserved desk area, while private serviced offices come in different sizes to accommodate businesses of all sizes.
“I did a very employee-focused survey about where do people want to work. I did it on my blog, there were approximately 7,800 responses, and surprisingly, the top 3 areas people wanted to work in are Sunway, Mid Valley and KLCC.”
“This surprised, me, because these 3 areas are the most jammed areas in Klang Valley.”
As a co-working space, they are also trying to pioneer the serviced office concept. They’re estimating a 300-strong membership in their space that spans over 18,000 square feet.
Looking to create an ideal working environment, the facilities certainly do appear to live up to that. Let’s just say we’re suffering from major office envy right now.
“My competition is not really other co-working spaces, but rather offices in general,” said Tiah. “I’m trying to get companies that are occupying the buildings around here to move out into these kinds of spaces.”
“If there are more co-working spaces copying our plans, we would consider ourselves successful in achieving our goal,” he added.
Colony is the co-working serviced office space that aims to turn work into a lifestyle. Equipped with facilities like a cafe, nap rooms, a massage room and access for its members to a rooftop pool and gym, it strives to help companies attract and retain talent.
Colony has a variety of shared workspaces and co-working options available. Open co-working areas are split into a hot-desking area and a reserved desk area; while private offices come in different sizes to accommodate teams of all sizes. Virtual offices and time-based passes are also available to allow everyone flexibility in their work environment.
Co-Founder Timothy Tiah, who also founded Nuffnang years ago, says “In the past 20 years, our quality of life has improved. We eat better food, live in better homes, drive cars that are getting safer and have better healthcare. However, the way we work has remained the same. We want to change that.”
The lobby area come equipped with Espressolab and Bold Grains, a café concept by The Healthy Food People.
“I came across the first co-working space in Jakarta and also discovered the how mature the industry was in Singapore. There was much potential for this industry to being the ‘Uber’ of working spaces,” Tiah added.

Colony @ KLCC aims to mirror the work environment at Google with a nap area, a massage room, a lounge, and access to a rooftop gym and swimming pool.
Boss, can we move here please?
Colony’s concept is to offer a space that combines a lifestyle factor with an office space, which is reflected in its physical design. There is a nap area, a massage room where a certified masseuse can be hired on an ad-hoc basis, a lounge with high windows, and access to a rooftop gym and swimming pool.
Colony can help reduce staff turnover and help companies cut staff retention costs.
