What do Microsoft, Disney and AirBnB have in common?
They all started in a recession.
So, are you a fledgling work from home start-up but not taken the next step to taking up an office address? Or are you well established but thinking of moving into a new suburb with better amenities and closer to your customers? Or looking for a bigger and better space to suit your business needs?
If so, there are some amazing opportunities going in Inglewood, that may well be the answer. Inglewood on Beaufort has done the leg work and tracked down a variety of spaces, small (sub 50sqm) to large (over 500sqm) currently up for rent, from long term leases to weekly rentals, that range from being fitted out to vacant, some modern, some character and all things in between that will suit all budgets, businesses and customers.
And if you lease in Inglewood and surrounds, you:
- Get to be part of a vibrant business community that already contains great Independent and National retailers, restaurants, cafes and commercial enterprises;
- Will be located on one of Perth’s most well-known streets, Beaufort Street, with great exposure (circa 25,000 vehicles per day) and access with easy parking and good transport links;
- Can settle in before Woolworths (opening early 2021) and Aldi (commencing development in late 2020); and
- Will enjoy support from your friendly local community group. Yes, that’s us!
So, if you are looking to expand off your kitchen table or trade up or down then check out these amazing spaces currently available:
Character corner of the Inglewood Clocktower at 919 Beaufort Street. This space has the well-established and well-frequented Finlay and Sons, Favourite Daughter, DeVine Cellars and Treadways mere steps away. A savvy retailer or commercial business (think, real estate) that likes maximum exposure and to be in the heart of the action can’t go wrong here and if the corner doesn’t take your fancy, the space next door at 110sqm is also available here.
If well located and competitively priced office space is the requirement, a choice of 2 spaces in the same building at 870 Beaufort Street (between Eighth and Ninth Avenue) is available with unit two here and unit three here.
Finally if its small space in a small timeframe, then look no further than this funky little option on Eighth Ave.

Across the road from that is some spacious options to rent behind the local Post Office. Sandwiched between the Post Office and local favourite, Il Pasto there are 2 spaces available that would allow for a myriad of options but not least office for one and with a commercial kitchen in the other, options for a restaurant, café or “dark kitchen”.
And if being next door to not one, but two Italian eateries is a requirement, then this is the space for you! This business has been a print shop for nearly 40 years with the last tenants moving the business closer to their home. It’s a great space with some rare Beaufort Street off street parking directly outside the property. Did we mention there are two Italian eateries either side??!
New Spaces not yet available
Are you a business that is just started and think you need a few months post COVID to get your ducks in a row? Luckily we have some fabulous developments coming soon to Beaufort Street and Inglewood.
The much anticipated Woolworths will be opening its doors in early 2021 and has shop leases available from 65sqm – 128sqm.
Not to be left out, the Aldi development, not yet commenced but anticipated for completion by late 2021/ early 2022 has slightly larger offerings on offer from 68sqm – 259sqm.
There are 5 ground floor tenancies ranging in size from 70 sqm to 267 sqm as part of the Sky Home Apartments, developed by Nicheliving. These new spaces could be perfect for a consultancy, retail or as cool office space and being part of an apartment development that is set to be one of the smartest and most sustainable buildings on offer if you have a green business, this space could be a great fit for you!
Lastly, the newest development by local ex pro-cyclist turned coffee-loving-property-developer, Tim Willing of Willing Developments is a seriously cool option. With his family still living on Clifton Crescent and a fond memory of the Deli growing up, we are sure that Willing Group will do Mount Lawley/ Inglewood proud with this bold new development. A mix of residential and commercial, there are options for people keen to live and work from home, but not any home, a place designed for this purpose with the creation of 15 “Shop-Houses”. So, with a great little coffee shop on the corner who wouldn’t love to have a meeting with a business in this development!
Any local entrepreneurs out there? It’s time to get cracking!
So, in the midst of some crazy times in 2020, we know that there are people plotting out great things. If that is you then it’s worth investigating some of these awesome Inglewood opportunities that can be acted upon now, or in 6-12 months time.
