Serviced Office amenities


Every customer  is named in the lobby registration kiosk.  A separate digital screen in the lobby displays a list of our office customers. And each serviced office customer has reasonable signage opportunity in their office window. Click the icon above to see an example.

Signage rights to the building are available on the modern facade above Market Street, facing north and east. There are two more highly visible free-standing billboard sites on Queen Street available.

Guest lobby 

To streamline the check-in process and enhance security measures, we have implemented an automated kiosk sign-in facility. This ensures that we have a record of all visitors on-site for WorkSafe and security purposes. As an added convenience, our security system promptly alerts you via email when your visitor arrives, notifying you that they are waiting in the reception area for you to meet them. This efficient system allows for seamless coordination and ensures a smooth and professional experience for both you and your guests.

Recycling station

We are committed to making sustainable practices easier by promoting re-use and recycling initiatives.

To encourage the use of re-usable packaging and utensils, we provide two under-bench dishwashers. These convenient facilities enable you and your team to easily clean and re-use items, reducing the reliance on disposable alternatives. Additionally, we have implemented a dedicated recycling station to streamline the process of doing your part for the environment. 

By offering these amenities and promoting sustainable practices, we aim to support businesses in their efforts to make a positive environmental impact while ensuring that being eco-friendly is convenient and hassle-free.


Conveniently situated in the heart of Hastings, our location offers excellent proximity to public transport links. 

A private car park off Queen Street, has its own dedicated entry to the building. Every large and midsize office is allocated parking spots, depending on size.

For those who prefer greener modes of transportation,  you'll find a generous covered area equipped with lockable bike racks and a charging station designed for e-bikes and e-scooters.

For the safety and security of coworkers, the entire bike & car parking areas are monitored by CCTV.

This system restricts access to authorized personnel, maintaining a secure environment throughout the coworking area and office spaces.

To enhance security further, motion-sensing CCTV cameras and floodlighting are deployed in the car park and front entrance area, enabling surveillance and identification of individuals on the premises.
