Hub Australia is set to expand its coworking offering into the retail space, partnering with Australia’s leading property group, Vicinity, to introduce a premium, four-storey coworking space at the Box Hill Central redevelopment.
This partnership marks the first foray into a retail precinct for Hub Australia, creating an exciting new offering that provides Hub’s unique hospitality-led customer experience to suburban members.
Located 15km east of the Melbourne CBD, Hub Australia’s coworking space will occupy 4100 sqm of the Box Hill Central South retail precinct and will feature a range of suites, offices, and desks. Exclusive premium amenities will also be available to members, including a café, business lounge, media studio, and a member kitchen. The convenient location of the coworking space within the centre will provide members with easy access to transport options, on-site parking, and retail stores and services.
Work Near Home
There is a recent increased demand for hybrid work options and flexible office locations, giving Hub Australia the opportunity to bring the office and retail space together in a unique work near home (WNH) offering. Such an offering will give workers the opportunity to access state-of-the-art office facilities and communities in suburban locations close to their homes.
“We believe progressive businesses will provide ever greater flexibility to their employees moving forward. Hub is developing a network of suburban locations around Melbourne and Sydney to cater for this demand, and we are delighted to be partnering with Vicinity to deliver this ‘close to home’ network to support a flexible work future.”
– John Preece, Chief Property Officer, Hub Australia
Benefits for Retailers
The coworking facilities due to open in the retail centre will see an increased number of new customers through the retail stores, restaurants and related services within Box Hill Central, particularly during weekdays when foot traffic may typically be slower. Hub Australia’s coworking space will form part of extensive developments at Box Hill Central, alongside the addition of popular new eateries and quality retail destinations.
