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:
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.
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.
