Hub’s 4,404 sqm workspace will be codesigned with Hassell and will accommodate up to 750 members. The newest coworking space will occupy levels two, three and seven of the former department store. Hub Flinders Street will offer suites on levels two and three, as well as offices, flexible desks and multiple suites on level seven.
With suites ranging in sizes, Hub’s newest location will be suitable for businesses of all sizes. Suites in Hub Flinders Street will be available for teams of up to 140, offering large businesses self-contained spaces with internal meeting rooms and offices. Together with other options including offices and flexible desks, Hub Flinders Street will offer a wider range of workspace solutions compared to previous locations.

Overlooking Federation Square and within minutes from Flinders Street Station, Hub Australia’s newest Melbourne space will be located in the Dexus-owned building which is being transformed by John Holland to offer new A-grade commercial spaces within the heritage façade. Designed by SJB, five additional levels of commercial space will be constructed above the existing building and will include a light filled atrium space. The atrium will provide a visual connection with the rear laneways and will rise to a vegetated green rooftop and entertainment area offering users stunning city views.
Hub Flinders Street is expected to open in mid-2020. The newest location will deliver Hub Australia’s eighth location, bringing its total Australia-wide footprint to 29,000 sqm. This follows three other Hub locations in Melbourne, including Hub Southern Cross at 696 Bourke Street, Hub’s 2nd Melbourne site at 162-168 Collins Street, and Hub Parliament Station within the historically significant ICI House at 1 Nicholson Street. Locations in other states include Sydney’s newest site at the historic Customs House, Brisbane’s first site in the heritage Anzac Square Building at 200 Adelaide Street in the CBD, and Hub Adelaide at 5 Peel Street.
