REA Group have announced the launch of Spacely, a new listings site that will make it easier for Australians to find short-term commercial rentals and co-working spaces that meet their needs.
Spacely, available on spacely.com.au, will launch as a new beta experience and will evolve over the coming months. Multiple updates and improvements to the site are expected as more short-term commercial listings are surfaced on the experience.
Tracey Fellows, REA Group Chief Executive Officer, commented: “The launch of Spacely sees us enter a new market and allows us to bring something to Australians that we know they’ve been searching for.
“With almost 600,000 Australian businesses renting a short-term commercial space last year alone1, there is a clear opportunity to make it easier for Australians to find the solution that’s right for them,” Ms Fellows said.
Joseph Lyons, REA Group Executive General Manager – Spacely, commented: “The nature of work is changing and there are a growing number of short-term commercial spaces for rent or lease in Australia. The current difficulty is they are spread across multiple websites depending on location and type of space.
“Spacely fills a gap in the market that currently exists and makes it easier for Australian businesses to find the space that’s right for them, in the one place,” Mr Lyons said.
For customers with shorter term commercial spaces available, Spacely provides a home for all their listings no matter the type of space including, co-working, offices, creative environments, retail spaces, event locations and even meeting rooms.
Among others, at launch Spacely will include serviced office listings from Regus, Servcorp and OfficeHub, as well as co-working spaces from Inspire9 and The Workery. To view all the listings, visit spacely.com.au
