Do you love connection, the ability to work flexibly, and the collective energy that working with others creates? So do we! Which is why The Crate Flexible Office Space came to be.
Our story all began back in 2014 when we were looking for a North Shore office space for our online marketing company. Nothing we saw felt right.
Because we couldn’t find a space that reflected our culture and gave the right impression to our team and clients, we decided to create our own and share it with others. The first iteration of The Crate was born!
We found ourselves in a small office unit in the back of Rosedale, Albany. It was a space that accommodated our team, had a few meeting rooms and twelve extra desks. Of course we needed some furniture, so we “borrowed” some pallets (or Crates as we like to call them) from local warehouses and fashioned some desks.
Since we began
Barrista Made Coffees
After fashioning some pallets (or Crates as we like to call them) from local warehouses into desks, it didn’t take long for word to get out about the collaborative community space we had created. We quickly filled the twelve desks with a number of exciting small businesses who formed the foundations of The Crate family.
From the start, our goal was to give traditional tenants an alternative solution to standard office leasing. Happily, we were able to remove the burden of restrictive long-term leases. Instead, we offered flexibility, excellence in customer service and a productive and professional environment.
From the moment you walk through the door to when you head home at night, we make it our mission to wow our Crate Family, and any clients or guests who come to visit you here. From our humble beginnings to now, the one aspect that has remined the same is our dedication to you and our Crate Family.
At The Crate there are many opportunities for you to attend events to socialise and make new business connections. We have a range of fun, professional and engaging regular events for our members such as Thursday Drinks, networking, Christmas parties and more.
