United Co., set in the heart of buzzing Fitzroy, is offering luxury offices and collaborative working space designed to position Fitzroy as Australia’s leading business district.

Julia Ikonomou, community manager for United Co., says “United Co. is a unique opportunity for entrepreneurs and small to medium sized businesses and is attracting interest from all over Australia. 

“Our space is a far cry from the business parks of the past, relegated to the outskirts of cities.  United Co. is placed right in the centre of Fitzroy, a creative hub, in a building that showcases the unique aesthetic of the area.”

Fitzroy is fast becoming an entrepreneurial and creative hub in Melbourne. Research shows that entrepreneurs thrive in collaborative working spaces surrounded by other motivated individuals. For many who are just starting out, UnitedCo. could be the perfect, inspirational work space.

United Co. offers a variety of options for private office spaces, dedicated desks, and hot-desking. The beautifully refurbished red brick building also offers a communal kitchen, a complimentary gym, end of trip facilities and a wellness and yoga centre, from which 100% of profits will be donated to various charities.

“Our main point of difference is that members have access to five star world-class facilities, which allow them to work better and achieve their business goals,” says Ikonomou.

“We know Australians work some of the longest hours in the world, and with more people following their passion and creating their own businesses a lot more time is spent in the office.

“We want to provide a collaborative space that feels good to be in and provides the facilities to ensure people are taking care of themselves and their business. 

“Entrepreneurs thrive when they are able to work, connect and partner in environments where there are like-minded people and inspiring activities to become part of.    We want United Co. to become the leading destination for entrepreneurs and business people seeking to operate in the ‘must have’ address. 

“Our high-tech space offers a broad mix of offices, desks, breakout areas for meetings, private rooms for confidential discussions, spaces for training, executive rooms for meetings and collaboration via voice or screen, lounge areas for drinks and eats and larger spaces for events and formal functions.”  

With communal facilities and shared working spaces, United Co. facilitates collaborative working and spontaneous connections between the best and brightest in business.

“We’re still growing,” says Ikonomou, “and there is room for many more to join us.

“America has Silicon Valley, and now Australia has United Co., Fitzroy.   We are really excited to be providing Australia’s start up and business community with one of the most exciting work spaces in the country.”
