LOVE YOUR WORK
From lush leafy spaces and social connectivity to meditative skyline views, discover how Melbourne Quarter is revolutionising work-life balance.
There’s no denying the pace of modern life is unrelenting. Work-life balance can feel impossible when we’re constantly interrupted by pinging emails from our perpetually-attached phones. And yet, Melbourne Quarter seems to have cracked the code. From green spaces that inspire mindfulness, to effortless connection, walkability and numerous wellness initiatives, discover some of the ways this progressive precinct is helping its workers find peace in the midst of a busy world.
IT’S GREEN…IN THE BEST WAY POSSIBLE
Head to Melbourne Quarter’s Sky Park, take a deep breath and instantly feel calm in the city’s most tranquil green oasis. Melbourne’s first elevated park provides respite from the daily hustle with its panoramic city vista, in the midst of lush, leafy landscaping. It’s the perfect place to step away from your desk, connect with nature, and feel the fresh air on your face (helpfully it’s wind-protected, so you’ll enjoy a gentle breeze, not a bluster). Alternatively take yourself to TiTree Park off Flinders Street with its barbecue facilities, soft lawn and skyline views—just another of Melbourne Quarter’s relaxing green spaces, to take the edge off a busy day.
IT’S WELL-CONNECTED… IN EVERY WAY
From free WIFI and effortless walkability, to meeting rooms and proximity to retail, Melbourne Quarter is all about connection. WIFI in public spaces means you can conduct business from anywhere, while innovation hubs and co-working spaces give you and your colleagues even more space to connect and create. Want a change of scenery from the office? Book the Sky Park’s technology-enabled meeting room. With its expansive floor-to-ceiling windows looking out to inspiring park views, it’s a tranquil space that’s perfect for finding focus.
Melbourne Quarter’s location opposite Southern Cross Station, with direct access to city cycle ways and a Super Tram stop, means that getting to and from the precinct is effortless. Plus, its enviable position between Collins and Flinders Streets means you’re surrounded by a diverse mix of retail, healthcare, hospitality, childcare and wellness services, connecting you with ease to all the convenience you could possibly need for an easier life.
Oh—and if you cycle to work and find yourself a bit hot and sweaty, just head to one of Melbourne Quarter’s 76 showers…with towel service. Yes—that’s 76 showers, 812 lockers and 680 bike storage spaces. #Blessed.
