The evolution of the ‘workspace’ is evident in the open plan Northridge Tech Hub in Perth, as technology and design companies snatch up space.
Technology accelerator Atomic Sky and digital agencies Clever Starfish, Tinder Box and Fast Hit have secured 452 square metres of the available space.
Strong interest has been generated by the progressive design, with most space in the building being of a co-working environment.
Leasing agent Daniel Johnston of CBRE said the modern design generated particularly strong interest from technology and design companies as the demand for flexible work space increases.
“The owner developed the property with the intention of creating an inner city tech hub where separate companies could work in the same space and collaborate,” Mr Johnston said.
Situated on the corner of Money Street and Washing Lane, the Northbridge building comprises ground floor offices with two upper levels of shared and individual office suites.
The building’s ground floor of 101 square metres has been leased to Clever Starfish, in addition to Tinder Box and Fast Hit.
Atomic Sky has leased the middle floor and top floors of 351 square metres to accommodate its technology accelerator, part of whose offering is the provision of co-working space for the companies it works with.
Desks are available on a month-to-month basis at a cost of $600 per desk per month, with occupiers receiving exclusive benefits and networking opportunities.
The space is targeted at entrepreneurs, start-ups and independent professionals across a range of fields.
The top floor, in part, comprises dedicated common areas that are available to all tenants on a booking system.
This includes a soft meeting room, a large meeting room with green screen video production, printing area and media area and a spacious balcony.
Rents in the building average $385 per square metre.
