Flexible workplace provider opens for business in Darwin

Regus opens its first Northern Territory offering in Darwin’s new office tower, the Charles Darwin Centre

Global workplace provider, Regus, today announced its arrival to the Northern Territory market with the first state venue set to launch in Darwin on November 9.

The new centre will be situated on level 16 of Darwin’s most iconic business address, the Charles Darwin Centre, which is positioned in the premier section of the city’s growing CBD. The centre has fully equipped offices, professional meeting rooms, business lounges, the world’s largest network of video communication studios and drop-in access the wider Regus network spanning 106 countries including Asia, the UK, and the US.

The Regus business centre will take up 905 square meters (sq. m) with one of Darwin’s best-known families, the Paspaley family. The centre boasts 360 degree uninterrupted harbour and park views and 155 work stations to cater for local, national and international businesses looking to work flexibly and professionally.

The introduction of Regus in the Northern Territory highlights a rapid year of growth for the company. This latest centre is the final Australian mainland capital city the company has entered into and brings the total Australian Regus network to 74 locations - an increase of 19 per cent from last year.

Studies have found that Darwin is currently performing strongly when compared with other parts of the nation. According to a recent report the Northern Territory has overtaken Western Australia to share the title of best performing economy alongside New South Wales[1].

Area Director for Queensland & Northern Territory at Regus, Yusuf Oner, said he is excited that Regus is entering into the Northern Territory market.

“As Regus launches in Darwin next month, we look forward to providing our new and existing customers with more opportunities to carry out business easily and efficiently.

“This dynamic city is strategically placed as Australia’s closest capital to Asia and is developing a strong strategic gateway position for shipping and regional freight. We anticipate our Darwin centre will form an essential location for both Darwin professionals and those that travel interstate who now have the option of a productive and flexible workspace on-the-go,” said Mr Oner.

Newly appointed CEO of Regus Australia and New Zealand, John Henderson said that by 2020 Regus aims to be in all Australian suburban markets, all regional centres and select transport nodes, including airports.

“Flexible workplace providers, such as Regus, allow businesses to rapidly react to market conditions and keep their capital free for investment in further growth, which is important for a growing economy like Darwin. Businesses need to be able to rapidly expand, but also to retract speedily, should growth possibilities open up elsewhere,” said Mr Henderson.
