DESIGN FOR THE PEOPLE
“ We are fi nding the commercial market has taken a swi ng in the direction that designers seem to be designi ng fo r the people, and n ot just the space.
Produ ct is sel ected a nd custo m-design ed more and more cu rrently with employees' n eeds in mind, i n o rder to create a desirable wo rk life an d en viro nmen t.
We find it is no longer a chair, a desk and a lounge in the breakout area. Instead, it is a full ergonomic task chair with a height-adjustable disking system,
and a high-back lounge with built in data and power – all with the end-user’s comfort in mind.”
Joseph Me rlino, ma naging direc tor of District.
FLIGHT TO QUALITY
QUBE Property Group managing director Mark
Hector says challen ging ma rket co ndition s a re giving
commercial ten an ts an oppo rtu n ity to relocate fro m lower-
grade older buildings into superior n ew premises.
Driven by developers who are fl exible, offer a choice
of quality premises, a nd are willing to put together
an agreement that suits both pa rties, the flight to quality
has been an ticipated fo r some time.
“ Tenants recognise that now is a good time to trade up
to n ew buildings with significan t end-of-trip facilities an d
superio r energy an d enviro n mental ratings at
a co mpetitive price,” Mark says.
More than half of QUBE Property Group’s
999 Hay Street was already secured by
tenants before its completion, highlighting
the demand for higher quality and more
flexible commercial spaces.
