The Top 5 Locations Outside of the Sydney CBD For Flexible Office Space

The Top 5 Locations Outside of the Sydney CBD For Flexible Office Space

Search for office space closer to home today.

Updated June 2022

After 2 years of work from home orders, workers now want more flexibility in their office space, specifically with their leases. The pandemic showed that many workers prefer a hybrid work environment, where they can split the days they work from home and work at an office. Being stuck with a traditional lease means that a lot of space and money is wasted on the days workers choose to work remotely.

The solution to this issue? A coworking desk or flexible office solution. These workspaces allow workers to only pay for the time they actually spend in the space, saving tremendously on costs and time. Even better, workers can find flexible office spaces closer to their home, ending the need to venture into the Sydney Central Business District.

So, what are the most popular locations outside of Sydney CBD to enjoy flexible office solutions?

North Sydney

Parks are scattered among the many office buildings and high-rise condos, perfect for an afternoon stroll between meetings. Since North Sydney is just a few kilometers from CBD, there are many accessible transportation options. Workers can enjoy easy access from CBD by either road or rail over the Sydney Harbour Bridge.
