Beyond lattes – in search of the best serviced offices in Melbourne CBD
It’s no secret that Melbourne’s population is growing at a staggering rate. With on average over 300 people newly calling Australia’s Southern Capital home each week, Melbourne is set to overtake Sydney as the country’s most populous City within a decade. If that statistic is not intriguing enough, it might surprise you to know that Melbourne’s CBD is now officially the most densely populated patch of land in the nation. These are ringing endorsements for a city that has long laid claim to being Australia’s cultural and sporting capital and now is on the ascendancy to wield economic and political clout to rival the Sydney establishment.
For Australian businesses, this underscores an undeniable fact: if you’re serious about growth, you ignore Melbourne at your own peril. Smart companies are flocking to the Land of Lattes in droves, and the burgeoning CBD is where much of the action is happening.
It’s no shock that along with high growth and demand comes spiralling real estate prices. With space at a premium, finding the right home for your Melbourne office can be a tricky, and expensive proposition. For many small to medium-sized businesses, a serviced office in the Melbourne CBD might be the perfect solution that helps them gain a foothold while keeping a lid on costs.
With that in mind, let’s look at some of the options available, and while we’re at it, we might uncover what makes the perfect serviced office in Melbourne’s CBD.
If you’re looking to make a bold statement of business intent, then Collins Street Tower is the perfect serviced office option for you. This iconic landmark is ideally situated in the epicentre of Melbourne’s business and legal district, allowing you to rub shoulders with movers and shakers of the local economy. Directly opposite the famous Rialto Towers and right next door to the Australian Stock Exchange, the inclusion of 480 Collins Street on your website or business card will lend your business the prestige and class that will create a professional first impression and help open doors.
More than just a prominent address, this stunning property offers a full range of features that make it a truly exceptional place to work. The fully-furnished offices and stylish meeting rooms are complemented perfectly by a food court and cafe offering delicious dining options, while gym, pool and sauna facilities help to keep you in shape. With a range of other amenities and a wealth of public transport options for convenient access, Collins Street Tower is waiting for you to claim your place in Melbourne’s corporate culture.
Only a stone’s throw away from Collins Street Tower, but worlds apart, is the delightful Exchange Tower. Sixteen floors of impressive, art-deco design form the backdrop for an oasis of style and character amidst the hustle and bustle of the CBD. Nestled amongst Little Collins Street’s chic cafes, restaurants and boutiques, you and your team will enjoy the ultimate balance of work and play in an environment that fosters both productivity and creativity.
Exchange Tower also offers multiple dining and fitness options, alongside a fully equipped business centre and professional concierge service to keep you functioning like clockwork. With all these features and more, Exchange Tower is as much a lifestyle choice as it is a serviced office location, allowing you to enjoy the finest of Melbourne culture in a location primed for business success.
While not technically in the CBD, St Kilda Road Towers is close enough to make the cut. Located right on the city fringe, a serviced office at St Kilda Road Towers offers all the benefits of instant access to the CBD, but in the more relaxed and picturesque surrounds of Australia’s most famous promenade.
Stunning views of Albert Park Lake and golf course are your daily companions at this incredible location that combines beautifully furnished office space and a wealth of dining and retail options with a residential section. This combination makes St Kilda Towers a city within a city known for its tight-knit sense of community. With everything from the fast pace of the CBD, to the more languid flow of St Kilda Road and the bohemian feel of South Yarra within convenient arms’ reach, you’ll be spoiled for options.
