Looking for a pandemic-proof Auckland CBD office space? With the arrival of Alberts exciting new workspace concept in Downtown Auckland now you can plan for a more stable and hassle-free future.
There’s no doubt Covid-19 has caused major disruption to Auckland’s CBD sub-lease office market. However, the long-term prospects are incredibly positive, with large infrastructure and residential projects already underway, and New Zealand’s ability to stamp out the spread of the virus offering some level of stability.
However, with various central city office developments currently on hold and a predicted rent squeeze from 2022, there has been a perfect storm created for a new breed of workspace to make its presence felt.
Alberts is a simple and modern solution for businesses wanting an economically sensible leasing model, says the company’s chairman, Andrew Saunders. “We provide aspirational design, hospitality and tech, which supports today’s fast evolving remote or nodal working model.”
Terms are flexible, he adds. “We understand the workspace model and, just like our clients, focus on the economics which we adjust to fit the market we all face.
“Our focus is the SME market, where dollar-per-desk is key, together with quality of workspace. The acceptance rate from clients is testament to the durability of the model.”
Alberts offers four types of tenancies over five Downtown Auckland properties, including the architecturally stunning number 1 Albert Street, offering breathtaking views right across the street from Commercial Bay and with office sizes ranging up to 600 square metres.
Alberts aspirational workspace concept is ideal for businesses that require their own private office but would benefit from the efficiencies of shared amenities, meeting rooms and state-of-the-art technology.
“It’s not to be confused with co-working spaces where offices are shared,” explains Saunders.
“The old workspace model had several factors a SME owner had to deal with – such as finding a new location, negotiating a lease, designing the space, building it and paying for it.
“Alberts does all of this so owners can focus on their core business. Essentially we take the workspace hassle away and replace it with a modern workplace that balances a mix of private office spaces with shared meeting rooms, communal business facilities, function areas and hospitality.
“We understand our tenants and want them to be successful. If our workspaces can inspire their staff and improve their business, then we’ve succeeded,” says Saunders.
“Plus we also provide the workspace on a really sensible economic basis which is ten percent to 30 percent cheaper than the traditional ‘do-it-all-yourself’ model.”
If your business success is highly dependent on a flexible CBD workspace – you simply must give Alberts some serious consideration.
Alberts are happy to facilitate a trial of a workspace to convince you that this is the new benchmark for Auckland CBD workspaces. This can be accommodated by contacting the GM of Leasing, Kylie Metzener via [email protected] or call 027 304 2010.
