Opening its doors in Q3 2023, district150’s pilot development will be located in Knowledge City, Hyderabad
Quorum Club Private Limited announces the launch of a new venture, district150; a hospitality-powered, meetings and events’ hub, purpose-built for the office buildings of tomorrow. A lifestyle-centric amenity, district150 sits at the convergence of the hotel and the future office. It will help reposition the traditional office building, by rewriting how people work, socialise, and engage.

The idea of district150 is born from the ongoing structural shift in the way people work, and the need for offices to provide hospitality grade amenities. Tailor-made to cater to these changing work trends, district150’s creatively designed spaces encourage collaboration and creativity, while at the same time, integrate lifestyle into the work routine.

With work increasingly hybrid, the office of the future will need flexible spaces, that are hospitality powered and purpose-built for a variety of event requirements aimed at inspiring collaboration. There is now a higher emphasis on amenity rich, experiential offerings in commercial buildings. district150’s idea and overall design is built around catalysing the power of networks.”
Through its multi-purpose meetings & events’ facilities, district150 in Hyderabad will offer a global HQ experience, not only to the tenants of Knowledge City but also to the surrounding ecosystem.
