The Perth office market is stable, with major operators occupying CBD locations, particularly those on the sought-after St Georges Terrace.
According to specialist local consultant Betty Chen, the CBD is a good option for businesses looking to establish themselves in Perth, due to ease of access, local amenities and the surrounding companies.
If parking is a priority, then locations outside the CBD are recommended.
The ANZ market doesn't typically use workstation or desk rates to give guide prices, but the average serviced office cost per desk in Perth CBD is $600 – 1000, while in the surrounding areas it ranges from $500 – 900.
Prices will vary according to location and requirements.
Costs are inclusive of amenities, which can cover Internet, meeting rooms, IT and administrative support, lounges, kitchens, car parking, videoconferencing and AV equipment.
In general, private suites are favoured over coworking spaces in Perth.
Instant offer a great variety of office solutions in a range of sizes, and are able to accommodate most enquiries, from one person through to 100 or more, depending on the specifics.
Serviced office providers can be flexible with the layout of the workspace, and are happy to discuss partitioning to fit a particular requirement.
