Make Fitzroy, Melbourne, your home
Melbourne’s bustling culture and thriving business district makes it a top pick for startups and smaller companies looking to innovate. Known to embrace and nurture organisations across a number of industries, the city isn’t slowing down on popularity for those looking to set up shop in the area.
As the ‘Land of the Trams’, this city is a sports-obsessed, business-focused laneway-inspired region with plenty of room to move – especially for companies seeking out the best coworking spaces in Melbourne. So, embracing all of these unmissable advantages, United Co. took up the opportunity smack-bang in the centre of Fitzroy – a premier destination that’s a stone’s throw away from the CBD, and amongst some of the most liveliest scenes in the area.
How does a coworking space work?
If you’ve never experienced one of these locations before, it can be a bit of a challenge to explain all of its many advantages. Rapidly growing in popularity across the globe, shared offices like ours are quickly becoming an emerging trend. Essentially, it revolves around the concept of being able to work alone while not actually having to be alone. Enjoy being positioned amongst those who are all striving towards success in their own way, all the while enjoying the amount of autonomy you need or desire. Ditch the feeling of isolation and experience limitless creativity.
However, this approach isn’t just for freelancers, either. More and more, smaller companies (and even bigger players) are adopting this type of working, offering a cost-effective alternative to leasing or buying a dedicated office that may not be necessary. Members can choose a plan that suits them best and opt for a flexible approach for their needs.
Do coworking spaces work and why?
These days, it’s common for smaller businesses to prefer smaller offices over independent options. This is for a number of reasons, but primarily because those enjoying the area can experience a more collaborative, inclusive environment – all the while being in the vicinity of like-minded people.
In fact, a recent study concluded that there are almost 19,000 locations like this across the globe, up from 16,500 in 2018. This growth isn’t slowing down either – by 2022, it’s expected that over 25,000 will be open for business throughout the world.
So, what’s the fuss all about?
Essentially, coworking spaces like ours in Melbourne offer a whole new mode of innovative, productive work. Instead of feeling restricted to the traditional layout, members of communities like ours can enjoy an open-plan, agile atmosphere that fosters inspired thinking.
What are the benefits of coworking?
The rise of this trend isn’t surprising. With the sheer number of benefits on offer, businesses of all walks are life are jumping on board Melbourne coworking spaces just like United Co. Beyond that, escaping the traditional 9 to 5 life is becoming an attractive drawing point for employees looking for more flexible, modernised employment. Fostering a sense of creativity, collaboration and networking, this type of environment provides a location that members can enjoy on a daily basis, putting a twist on what it means to head to the office.
Other benefits also include:
Routine and structure: If you’re a professional who previously worked at home, maintaining focus and keeping on track can be a huge challenge. And then there’s sticking to a routine and freeing yourself of distractions (think TV, bed, family and pets). However, traditional offices aren’t always attainable and can be expensive (and, in some cases, uninspiring). United Co. fills this gap.
Productivity and creativity: Wouldn’t it be nice to feel constantly inspired and filled with innovative, fresh ideas? The best coworking spaces in Melbourne offer all of this in an environment that’s filled with energy and positive mindsets – all of which stems from being around like-minded people.
Reducing feelings of isolation: Working within four walls with not a whole lot to look at or people to speak to, or even from your kitchen table, can become isolating. If you’re a one-man company, this is often further emphasised, and it’s important to keep up human interactions for both your professional and mental wellbeing.
Networking and collaboration: What if you had access to those who could benefit from your services, and you theirs? In shared offices, you can. Experience the upbeat atmosphere of those who are striving towards a common goal, and mutually benefit each other through positive collaboration and innovation. Remember, it’s all about the connections and the people you meet.
Wellness and support: Traditional alternatives don’t tend to include many wellness opportunities or benefits. At United Co. we have a dedicated onsite gym, as well as a strong focus on work-life balance. This allows you to maintain your professional antics, all the while keeping up with your personal lifestyle. From yoga through to fitness – we’ve got you covered.
What kind of facilities do you get in a coworking space?
At United Co. there’s plenty of features and facilities to enjoy. Here’s a few you can look forward to using as part of our community:
- An onsite, licensed cafe – Mr. Huxley
- Community events
- Meeting rooms

Extraordinarily beautiful layout, and lovely staff. United Co. has been designed by a firm who prioritised plants, natural light, breakout spaces... And a coffee machine (!). However you work best - in an open office environment, by yourself, or in a shared office space - you'll find a space for yourself within.Incorporating aspects of biophillia, community-focused design, and wellness as key priorities, it's a great space to work in.
