Democratising commercial leasing 大众化的商租

 

Simon

Have you ever tried to lease commercial space? An office? A shop? A warehouse? If so, you’ve probably found the experience quite time consuming, expensive, difficult to navigate and not particularly transparent.

Simon Hanlon (30) is a Melbourne-based lawyer turned tech entrepreneur. He is hungry, well resourced and is part of a new breed aggressively pursuing the Internet enabled dream.

Witnessing first hand the inefficiencies associated with the commercial leasing classified space, he saw the opportunity for an ‘Airbnb-style’ marketplace to open up the commercial property market.

“The online landscape in Australia is locked up and agent-skewed, with a handful of larger players dominating the space, resulting in an often rigid, expensive and non-consumer-friendly experience.”

Sidespace (www.sidespace.com.au) is a website connecting vacant commercial leasing opportunities directly with prospective tenants. The company’s vision is to democratise the commercial leasing market.

Unlike existing players, the offering is aimed at all market participants with the site accepting listings from individuals, businesses, property developers, shopping centres, asset managers, existing tenants (sub-leases) and others, including commercial property agents.

The platform also provides an effective channel for those seeking to market non-traditional opportunities – such as sub-leases and short-to-medium-term arrangements – making commercial space far more accessible.

Hanlon’s previous experiences as a commercial tenant were typical of what many encounter and prompted him to take action.

“I was responsible for sourcing a warehouse for 12 months. Despite the six-figure sum proposed, several agents were reluctant to entertain the term or connect me with landlords directly”.

The company is backed by a group of well-heeled private investors including Jason Yeap OAM and the team believes it has the online experience on board required for success.

Emphasis has been placed on a mobile-first strategy, a refined user experience, affordable listing rates, solid customer service and aggressive marketing campaigns ensuring a consistent flow of tenants to the site.

Users of all sizes are listing vacant commercial space on the site, from larger developers like Lend Lease, to smaller companies like Sidespace, who successfully sub-let its own Collins Street offices, thereby contributing substantially to its bottom line.

你曾经尝试过租赁商业空间吗?一间办公室?一家商店?仓库?你可能会发现非常耗时、昂贵,有浏览难度,也不是特别透明。

30岁的 Simon Hanlon 是一个驻扎墨尔本,从律师转行的科技企业家。他看中了这个新品种资源的潜能,积极追求网络扩展。由于感受到目前商业租赁方式与分类空间的低效率,以美国成功的房屋租赁网站 Airbnb 风格作为开拓商业地产市场方式。

“澳大利亚的在线网络景观较为闭塞,而且侧重代理,少数大型商家占据了空间,导致刚性、昂贵和非友善的租赁消费经验。”

Sidespace (http://www.sidespace.com.au) 是一个连接商业出租者与潜在租户的网站,公司的愿景是拓展大众化的商业租赁市场。

与现有商业现况不同的是,Sidespace 目的是接受所有市场参与者,包括来自个人、企业、房地产开发商、购物中心、资产管理者、现有租户(转租)和其他,甚至商业地产代理。

这个平台还提供有效的渠道寻求非传统的市场机会,如转租或者短期到中期的安排,使需求者更容易租到商业空间。而促使Simon Hanlon展开这个计划,是因为遭遇了一名典型商业租户的经历。

“我当时寻觅租赁一个12个月期的采购仓库。尽管是开出6位数的租金,一些代理商也不愿意招待或者让房东直接联系我。”

Sidespace 得到私人投资者包括 Jason Yeap  OAM 和一些团队的支持,并且认为这将是一个成功的在线体验案子。

首个策略重点放在移动手机与精致快速的用户体验,实惠的价格和扎实的客户服务,再加上积极的营销活动,并且确保一致流量的租户网站。

不同规模的用户将在商业空间的网站上汇集,大型的开发商如 Lend Lease,小公司像Sidespace,如果谁能成功转租本身柯林斯街道的办公室,更是极大地促进了成果

ART & CULTURE 轩尼诗与艺术

Hennessy V.S Limited edition bottle was created by internationally renowned contemporary artist Ryan McGinness making this the 5th collaboration between the liquor company with internationally renowned contemporary artists over the 5 years. This limited edition is based on the artist’s “black holes’ series of paintings where the colours glow under black-light on a silver background incorporating McGinness’ signature icons that symbolises the craftsmanship of Hennessy Cognac. Hennessy celebrated the launch of this historic partnership in August with a event titled #ArtoftheChase in New York City with an interactive tunnel of digital McGinness artwork captivating guests with Hennessy cocktails, including the ‘Infinity’ that the artist helped to create. Not to mention a special performance by rapper 2 Chainz. The artist later travelled with Hennessy to further promote and bottle-signings in LA, Miami and Philadelphia.

Very Special Limited Edition by Ryan McGinness

“I felt the bottle was a perfect canvas to extend my Black Holes body of work. The inclusion of the metadata concept was also important for me because it’s an extension of what I’m already pursuing in my work.”

McGinness nobly declares.

轩尼诗限量版的酒瓶是艺术家 Ryan Mcginness 的杰作,这是该国际知名当代艺术家过5来第 5 次与酒类公司合作。这款“黑洞”系列作品在深邃的黑光中闪烁黄色、紫红色和绿色霓虹色涡流线构成百合花图案色彩,结合银色背景的 Mcginness “辐射眼”签名图标,象征着轩尼诗干邑精巧手艺。

而为何配合限量版的艺术酒瓶,轩尼诗 8 月在纽约市启动合作伙伴的酒会派对 #ArtoftheChase,现场除了有电子数码方式展现 Mcginness 的艺术作品隧道,而艺术家们更是创造了“无限”这个主题。而 Rap 歌手 2 Chainz 的现场演出更是增添色彩,这项宣传盛会也将在洛杉矶,迈阿密和费城举行。
