Australia’s leading premium flexible workspace provider Hub Australia has tripled the size of its Adelaide offering by opening one of the city’s only future-ready coworking sites at the historic Pirie house.
The new 2,000sqm flexible workspace at 89 Pirie Street officially opens its doors to approximately 350 members, marked by a ceremony with Premier of South Australia Steven Marshall as guest of honor.
Premier of South Australia Steven Marshall said: “This expansion is a massive boost to start-up and scale-up businesses in South Australia. We have such a thriving entrepreneurial ecosystem in our state, it’s critical they have space to work and collaborate.”
Hub Adelaide has expanded in response to growing demands for hybrid work and flexible workspace in Adelaide’s CBD, relocating from a 760sqm space at 5 Peel Street that catered for 150 members.
The architecturally designed workspace caters to a diverse range of businesses including existing Hub Adelaide members PEXA and Xero, along with home-grown South Australian businesses.
Hub Australia chief executive Brad Krauskopf said: “Our original Adelaide workspace has been fully occupied every year since opening in 2013 and we’ve seen a healthy and growing appetite for premium flexible workspace with hospitality-led service. Demand for flexible workspaces has increased during the COVID-19 pandemic and a key driver for our expansion in the heart of Adelaide’s CBD.
“Our sophisticated offering is within the historic Pirie House, which has undergone a high-quality multimillion-dollar refurbishment by landlord and builder Pelligra Group. In a strategic new approach, Hub has entered an innovative hybrid lease arrangement with Pelligra Group that sees us manage broad building amenity, including the cafe and serviced meeting spaces.”
Set behind Pirie House’s 1878 heritage facade, Hub Adelaide’s future-forward fitout has been designed by MMoser and features dedicated desks, offices, suites and meeting rooms. Well-equipped state-of-the-art amenities will include a café, kitchen, podcast studio, parents’ space and hotel-style end of trip facilities.
