The City owns a number of properties that are ideally suited to artists and others working in creative industries. Putting these buildings to use, we offer a number of programs that help people and companies find an affordable studio or workspace.

In 2012, we settled more than 18 cultural enterprises at 66 Oxford Street – with the building now home to tenants specialising in everything from textile design to mobile app development to ceramics. The Creative Spaces program has proved a great success, with the transformation of another property at 101-111 William Street into a creative hub of activity including architects, fashion designers and online music development.

The programs we have available suit different needs. Aside from Oxford and William Streets, we run a short-term licence register which, at a reduced rate, provides short term space for creatives that may suddenly become available.
