HUB AUSTRALIA BOOSTS MELBOURNE'S CO-WORKING SCENE

HUB Australia has launched the largest co-working space in Victoria, after tripling its footprint in Melbourne.

Hub Southern Cross occupies two floors of the Mail Exchange building on the corner of Spencer and Bourke Streets with space for up to 700 members.

Hub Australia founder and CEO Brad Krauskopf (pictured) says the co-working industry has evolved since the organisation's launch in 2011.

He says the flagship location leverages experience combined with state-of-the-art facilities similar to those of large corporates.

"From origins supporting freelancers, co-working spaces are now attracting small and medium-sized business who are flocking to enjoy the business benefits of being part of a co-working community and the flexibility to choose a space which suits the stage of their business growth," Krauskopf says.

"We are privileged to be at the forefront of the co-working evolution, helping our members and their businesses grow and we look forward to seeing this continue in a new business home at Hub Southern Cross."

Hub Southern Cross has a variety of areas for one to 20 person teams, including private offices, open-plan, flexible seating and spaces that can be customised for larger company members.

Designed by HASSELL, the space also fetaures 20 bookable meeting rooms, café, gym, media room and function centre.

HASSELL principal Sean Bett says the space was designed to encourage creative energy and a sense of openess for tenants.

"The design celebrates the heritage building and features curated pieces to create a comforting sense of belonging and a home-like feel - it's a home where businesses can grow," Bett says.

"The space is vibrant and varied to appeal to a wide range of Hub Australia members who can choose from a range of working spaces, including communal kitchen tables and enclosed studios."

New tenants include workspace solutions provider Steelcase, which supplied furniture for Hub Southern Cross, as well as 300 small to medium-sized businesses.

By the end of the year, Hub Australia will support 1000 workers in Melbourne, Sydney and Adelaide.
