North Shore’s first Shared Office / Coworking Space

The Crate Shared Space started in 2014, when we were looking for an office space to share for our online marketing company Online Results on the North Shore of Auckland. But we just had no luck in finding an office space that reflected the culture or the first impressions we wanted our team and clients to get when they stepped in side our business. So we thought stuff it, lets make our own Coworking Space and share it with others!

We found ourselves a small office unit in the back of Rosedale, Albany that could accommodate our business, a few meeting rooms and twelve extra desks, we then “borrowed” a few pallets (or Crates as we like to call them) from behind a few local warehouses to make some desks, and created the North Shore’s first “rent by desk” shared office solution.

And that’s how it all got started. (Check out a few pic’s from the good old days and our humble beginnings)


We quickly filled up with a number of exciting small businesses who needed the benefits of coworking and loved our mix of professional and trendy office space coupled with community, family and fun.

Our goal right from the start was to give traditional tenants an alternative solution to traditional office leasing, to remove the burden of long term leases and over deliver on first impressions and customer service. Our first priority was and still to this day, to be the master of first impressions, and make or tenants look great in front of their clients.

Our collaborative shared space quickly grew popularity, and before we knew it, expansion was required, we grew from our initial 160sqm space we took over a neighbouring neighbouring office, taking us to 320sqm, before we moved up to our premium location at 28 Constellation Drive in Rosedale where we now have 1000sqm of trendy customisable office space, meeting rooms, event spaces and ample car parking only a few hundred metres from major bus stations and motorway on ramps.

Our new shared office space is located in on Constellation Drive, Rosedale, Albany, North Shore, Auckland
