North Sydney is on-trend, again. Though we’d say it never went out of fashion. North Sydney is an affordable, yet prestigious address for any business looking to set up shop, or relocate their existing operations. Here’s why we think an office fit out in North Sydney is a great idea for your business, brand and team.
Location, location, location
An office fit out in North Sydney is a popular option. It’s Sydney’s second CBD location and only across the harbour from Sydney’s main business district. There’s also lots of prime commercial (and residential) real estate to choose from, including ones with stunning harbour views.
Public transport is an important (often overlooked) consideration when it comes to setting up an office space that’ll appeal to a wide talent pool. Most people don’t want to drive to work — petrol and parking are expensive — and many people enjoy the benefits of public transport, which includes extra time to read, listen to audio books, or even to catch up on work.
The Sydney Metro is also coming. Once it arrives there’ll be easier access from North Sydney to Barangaroo (in three minutes) and from North Sydney to Martin Place (in five minutes). Strengthening this connection with Sydney’s CBD further adds to North Sydney’s appeal as a great place to set up your office.
North Sydney is already home to some of Australia’s leading knowledge-based businesses. Key industries include:
- Professional services
North Sydney is also popular with big name corporate tenants, including recent additions of Nine, Compass and Microsoft to the area, so it makes sense to consider a commercial fit out in North Sydney.
Workers in North Sydney enjoy a lively professional setting and social scene. North Sydney gives office workers easy access to:
- Great bars and pubs, like the Rag and Famish Hotel, which was built in 1860
- Diverse restaurants, cafes and convenient takeaway options, like Din Tai Fung, Betty’s Burgers & Concrete Co
- Gyms, like Fitness First and Gold’s Gym
- Modern amenities, including fast and reliable internet
- Popular markets and supermarkets, like Coles, Aldi, Woolworths and the premium Greenwood Grocer
- Pockets of green space
An abundance of office space to choose from
North Sydney is bubbling over with corporate and creative spaces, at affordable prices, popular with medium sized businesses looking for a location that is:
- Easy for staff and clients to get to
- Professional and appealing to customers
- Convenient and makes collaboration easy
- Affordable, with rents about 25% cheaper than the Sydney CBD
- Close to shops and cafes
North Sydney also offers popular office spaces too. Coca-Cola Place, originally known as The Ark, is a 21-level commercial office building that’s won a series of awards as well as a 6-Star Green Star accreditation.
Vodafone Central is also a stunning addition to North Sydney’s skyline and chosen because of the benefits to Vodafone employees.
A sparkling centerpiece to the revitalisation of North Sydney’s commercial area is 100 Mount Street. It has stunning views, from Sydney’s iconic harbour to Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park, impressive design features and some big name tenants.
