WOTSO’s FlexSpace network reaches 26 sites with Liverpool opening

24 April 2024

WOTSO, Australia’s home-grown ASX-listed flexible workspace operator, has opened its 26th location in Australia and New Zealand at Liverpool in south-west Sydney.

It’s the fifth site opening for WOTSO this financial year, following the launch of spaces in the regional Queensland city of Toowoomba, Robina on the Gold Coast, Botany in Sydney’s inner-south, and Takapuna in Auckland, New Zealand.

Jessie Glew, CEO of WOTSO (ASX: WOT), says Liverpool is a crucial component of the company’s presence in western Sydney, where it now has five sites.

“Liverpool is a key link in WOTSO’s western Sydney network, complementing our locations in Penrith, Campbelltown, Blacktown and North Strathfield,” says Glew.

“It means that our members who are doing business in western Sydney will always have an office with the latest technology and facilities within easy reach.

“This expansion continues WOTSO’s effort to provide flexible and financially accessible workspace solutions, specifically designed to meet the needs of small business.”

WOTSO Liverpool is in the heart of the city’s CBD, Sydney’s third largest, and features 40 desks, 30 private offices, three meeting rooms, relaxation spaces, kitchen and bar.

Glew says WOTSO clients are typically a mix of freelancers, consultants and both established and emerging businesses – creating a dynamic and collaborative environment for members.

She says WOTSO places a big emphasis on creating inspirational spaces with lots of natural light, bright colours and murals to enhance mood, creativity, and focus.

“When you’re surrounded by brightness, you feel more energised and motivated to tackle tasks with enthusiasm,” says Glew.

WOTSO now has around 7500 desks across NSW, Queensland, Tasmania, ACT, South Australia, Western Australia and New Zealand.

Its strategic focus is to acquire and repurpose distressed assets in the suburbs and regions of Australian and New Zealand.

Of its 26 FlexSpaces, WOTSO owns 12 and leases the rest, taking advantage of low post-COVID rents for large spaces in commercial buildings and often partnering with landlords, which is the case at Liverpool.

Glew says WOTSO is in growth mode and has more openings planned this year.

“We are excited about the potential of the WOTSO model and want to take advantage of the opportunities being presented to us,” she says.
