iHarvest Coworking Sunshine – Helping You To Work Smarter
Co-working spaces are becoming more and more popular amongst start-ups, entrepreneurs and professionals all over the world – and Melbourne is no exception. With the cost of renting an office in Melbourne’s CBD expected to rise between 30-40% in the next five years, it’s no surprise that professionals are looking to a more affordable alternative in an effort to cut costs. Now, the newest co-working space in Melbourne’s west has opened its doors, offering freedom and flexibility to work smarter.
Named in homage to the innovative H.V. McKay Sunshine Harvester Works that put Sunshine on the map in 1906, iHarvest provides the perfect space for burgeoning start-ups and entrepreneurs to anchor their business. Positioned in the heart of Sunshine with large windows looking out towards the city skyline, this perfectly designed space seeks to facilitate productivity, enrich collaboration, create purposeful connections and enhance the way people work in the west.
Work in a way that suits you
One of the best parts of building your own business is having the freedom to work in your own way. Gone are the days of feeling chained to your desk – with co-working spaces like iHarvest, there are many different ways to work.
The vibrant, light-filled space is designed to suit to all professionals regardless of what industry you’re in. Large adjustable sit-standing desks are available for those times when you just need to buckle down and get things done. And, if you’re someone who works better in a collaborative setting, dedicated ‘breakout’ areas and a bright orange ‘campfire lounge’ area makes it easy and comfortable to work with your team. In addition to this, a large training area seats up to 30 people, making it the perfect place to hold workshops.
When you add this to the spacious meeting room and the private phone booth, and access to Level 6 (just wait till you see the view!) it’s clear that iHarvest has accounted for every working style when creating their space.
Grow with like-minded professionals
Studies have shown that co-working offices improve productivity and growth by giving members the invaluable opportunity to network, build their community and potentially even gain a few clients who have need of your services.
Not only will you benefit from working amongst a friendly community of fellow coworkers, iHarvest members can also access a range of training opportunities. Topics range from tax and business planning workshops to marketing and creating engaging content for your social media channels as well as specific programs for startups run by the VU Innovations team. With so many opportunities to learn, iHarvest ensures you have the knowledge you need to grow your business.
Stay central and connected
A 2019 study found that people with shorter commutes to work were generally more enthusiastic and productive throughout their work days. For professionals who call Melbourne’s west home, iHarvest is perfectly positioned as both the gateway to surrounding western suburbs while being just a short, 15-minute train ride to the Melbourne CBD.
Sunshine is known for its vibrant food culture, and there is no shortage of cafes and restaurants to entertain clients or slip away for a relaxing break. On top of this, nearby cinemas, supermarkets, banks and libraries makes it easier than ever to manage personal tasks during a break, improving your work-life balance.
Keep costs down and productivity up
