The last five years have seen an enormous take-up of co-working spaces in markets across the world. It’s an innovative trend creating more united teams than ever before and has effectively revolutionised the way we now do business. Research shows that more co-working spaces were leased in Australia in 2018 than the previous three years combined*.
Melbourne experienced the country’s best coworking growth rate in 2017-18, increasing its deal share in the Australian market to 24% compared to 21% in 2016-17.
The benefits to co-working spaces are obvious… primarily, they offer flexibility and low overheads that embrace the needs of companies of all sizes, allowing for a collaborative, cost-effective workspace overall. And with that, small to medium businesses can access flexible agreements that still provide the personalised space they need to function effectively and even flourish.
JLL’s head of office leasing Australia Tim O’Connor said “Organisations are increasingly becoming more agile, while employees show greater flexibility in their working habits. We believe that organisations will seek a diverse range of working locations to address the agility and desire, and flex space provided directly by a landlord or coworking operator will form part of the workplace solution.”
Space Station’s vision is to cater for this growing market by providing flexible-offices rather than simply rows of work-stations. By offering a flexible office environment delivering privacy and a more prestigious work environment, Space Station still provides a model for businesses and entrepreneurs to network and establish healthy connections with like-minded professionals. This also means bridging the gap between one industry to another. Space Station offers professionals everything they need to thrive in an office environment without expensive office overheads and without being locked into a long-term lease.
The new look level 10 at 440 Collins Street will boast brand-new, sleek, contemporary, inspired office spaces in the heart of the city with a hint of modern-industrial design in the free Members Lounge.
Housing a large boardroom, a large meeting room, two training rooms plus 25 private offices of varying sizes will be available to lease offering accommodation flexibility, on very flexible lease terms. Professionals can hire for an hour, a day, a week, a month or a year depending on their needs.
The over one hundred tenants will benefit from integrated facilities such as a shared kitchen, breakout area as well as a Members Lounge where they can hold informal meetings or work mobile if they desire.
Located on prestigious Collins Street opposite the new Arches Tower, most of the Space Station private offices take in sweeping views of the Melbourne city skyline. The boardroom, meeting rooms and training rooms are equipped with cloud-based video conference technology to enable effortless presentations or business meetings with off-site colleagues.
Boardrooms and meeting rooms can be booked individually if you are just simply looking for an excellent venue to hold a one-off meeting.
