Our workspaces are generously sized: 1250mm x 750mm.

Yes! Every Workspace member has access to a storage locker and the option of purchasing a lockable under-desk cabinet for $20 per month.

In addition to the social and professional benefits of coworking, the most significant difference between private leasing of commercial space and a Workspace membership is cost! Our memberships are inclusive of all rent, outgoings and other overheads.

A Workspace Dedicated Desk for a 4 person team of approximately $2,000 per month (in one easy payment) comes in at nearly half of the estimated cost associated with privately renting a 40sqm commercial office space. Commercial space of this size would cost:

  • $21,000 p.a. base rent ($1750p/m)
  • $5250 bond ($437p/m)
  • $10,000 fit-out and furniture ($833p/m)
  • $3000 p.a. utilities ($250p/m)
  • $1200 p.a. NBN internet ($100p/m)
  • $1800 p.a. Office Expenses ($150p/m)
  • $1200 p.a. Maintenance ($100p/m)
  • Month-to-month memberships 
  • Immediate start (no downtime)
  • A friendly, productive and encouraging environment

Maybe you find it hard to be productive in the home office, or the commitment and financial costs associated with a commercial lease isn’t for you. Maybe your business is ready for enterprise-grade facilities (like super-fast WiFi and meeting rooms), but at a much cheaper rate than commercial properties can offer. Maybe you’re just after more interaction with others and the opportunity to work in a beautiful and professional environment that projects the professionalism your business needs to grow.

Companies who need a satellite workspace in the Hunter, digital and professional service-based businesses (i.e. digital marketers, videographers, lawyers, accountants, creative freelancers), startups and corporate teams can all benefit from working at Workspace. Service-based businesses can generate a lot of new and recurring revenue just from referrals within the community. Meanwhile, other businesses find value in the increased productivity and lower costs offered by coworking spaces.

Makespace is for companies, startups or entrepreneurs looking to develop hardware products. Workspace is open to all types of businesses and professionals who are looking for a base to grow their business.

We’ve got a great partnership with Big Air that allows us to get the fastest speeds available in every location we’re in. It’s pretty great!

If you’re ready for a space that has been thoughtfully designed to foster collaboration, inspire creativity and ignite productivity, then yes! Workspace coworking offers you all the upside of a commercial space without the price tag, plus the added benefits of an instant community and professional development.

Being a sole trader or working remotely no longer has to mean working in isolation from home. Coworking spaces allow you the freedom to thrive in a collaborative working environment on your own terms. Whether you’re flying solo or leading a growing team, you’ll find a membership to suit your needs.
