Dublin, IE, February 25, 2022 — Today, Synergy Global Housing (Synergy), a leader in serviced accommodation programme management, announced the launch of Synergy @ The Pines, the latest EMEA offering in a string of recent property openings specifically designed to accommodate the travelling, remote workforce. Located at The Pines, Ballsbridge D4, directly across from Dublin’s embassy belt, Synergy @ The Pines features one-bedroom apartments, all of which offer with customisable ergonomic workstations to support a comfortable and productive in-apartment work environment.

“Synergy @ The Pines combines purposeful apartment design with an ideal location to deliver an extended-stay hospitality experience catered to the modern business traveller”, said Stephen Hanton, President International. “We want these apartments to contribute a sense of ease and familiarity to life away from home and thereby reduce the friction business travel has on one’s productivity”.

Fresh off from the opening of Synergy The Strand, Synergy’s latest London apartment community located in the highly sought-after Strand district, this new offering in the heart of Dublin adds to Synergy’s rapidly growing UK and Ireland portfolio. Next up for the global extended-stay accommodation programme manager is a bloc of apartments in Munich, three additional properties in Dublin, and two more in London.

“Property offerings like Synergy @ The Pines are ideal additions to Synergy’s ever-growing portfolio across EMEA”, said Claire Barrie, VP of Sales, EMEA & APAC. “As we begin to see less frequent but longer stays, we’re prioritising taking on apartments that provide our guests with a superior experience— one that promotes wellness and productivity in a world where the concept of “work from anywhere” has become the norm. Synergy @ The Pines does just that”.

Synergy @ The Pines is also a plastic-free property, completely void of single-use plastics and micro-bead toiletries. Guests are provided with sustainable alternatives such as glass water carafes and microbead-free toiletries.

(ROUND ROCK, Texas) – CWS Corporate Housing is honored to have acquired Apartment & Relocation Center effective February 25.

Apartment & Relocation Center, a Women-Owned Small Business, was founded in 1983 by Marietta Alba, a leader within the Corporate Housing and Rental Assistance industry.

According to Travis Kessler, President/CEO of Texas REALTORS, Marietta started this successful business venture almost 40 years ago with the vision of partnering with the REALTOR community to meet the business need for corporate housing and rental assistance services in the San Antonio market.

Both CWS Corporate Housing and Apartment & Relocation Center maintain a team of dedicated individuals who are committed to providing lasting impressions for our relocating clients. “The combination of our two teams and companies allows for a heightened guest experience that furthers CWS’ commitment to excellence,” says Tracy Hayes, President of CWS Corporate Housing.

Their team’s extensive knowledge and experience within our industry paves the way for growth within CWS and allows for CWS’ further expansion into the San Antonio market. While CWS will have big shoes to fill in the absence of Marietta Alba, we are excited for the opportunities that lie ahead.

CWS Corporate Housing, founded in 1995, is an award-winning industry leader specializing in short-term furnished apartment rentals in over 240 cities nationwide. We continue to expand our portfolio through the acquisition of Gables Corporate Accommodations in late 2019 and our exclusivity with Mid-America Apartment Communities in 2020. We have received national recognition for excellent customer service, innovation, and philanthropic efforts which reflects the impact of our dedicated team members, superior industry knowledge, and expertise in providing temporary living solutions that create lasting impressions.
