What does it Cost to Rent Flexible Office Space in Perth?

Median Price of Flexible Office in Perth by Office Size

Though slightly higher than WA’s median price, Perth’s $700 per person is still comparable to CBD prices in other major cities, especially for smaller size teams and will go a long way to help companies preserve cash during these uncertain times. Space for larger teams looking for 50 or more desks is attractively priced competitively at $728 per desk.

Office Capacity by Office Size

Private offices make up the 82% of flexible space rented in Perth. These private offices typically share facilities such as meeting rooms, kitchens, bathrooms but are self-contained and fully serviced.

By sheer count of available offices, the smaller private spaces of fewer than 10 desks account for 88% of all listings. This is somewhat in response to demand for smaller private spaces by businesses that are looking for safe places for their employees to work away from HQ or home. Yet larger spaces with 50 plus desks are also available and used by corporates and government bodies typically in need of swing space, project space or just more space to allow for physical distancing.

Desk Rates by Space Type

When it comes to finding a deal, you’ll find lower prices within a traditional business office setting where the tenant or landlord is sharing their commercial space on Rubberdesk. In fact, flexible space within a traditional business in Perth has a median price of $500 per desk/person compared to a median price of $650 per person at a coworking operator. The tradeoff though is that you may have to skip out on the additional amenities that a fully managed service operator provides.

On the other side, coworking desks are less expensive at a median price of $429 per person at coworking operators who are well placed to offer a better product for individuals or small flexible teams who do not require a private office.
