Chance for creative business operators to test market rent-free

September 6, 2015 by  

A new initiative that could transform empty commercial spaces into vibrant creative business test zones is to be introduced by Knox City Council.

Open to residents throughout Knox City, including Scoresby, the programme being undertaken jointly with Renew Australia aims to stimulate commercial activity.

Council plans to start the Renew Knox initiative by activating vacant and currently under-utilised spaces in The Mall at Boronia on a rent-free basis with independent local initiatives and creative enterprises.

A Council spokesman said the concept had been implemented in other parts of the country and the Renew Boronia project was modelled on Renew Australia and Renew Newcastle success stories.

He said the idea was to permit local creative producers to trial their ideas for a business without the need to sign up for a commercial lease, while at the same time helping owners of the vacant commercial spaces by creating a vibrant atmosphere that could ultimately attract permanent tenants or buyers.

Renew Australia is keen to hear from commercial property owners interested in taking part in the Renew programme, as well as residents who wish to trial their creative business ideas.

The Council spokesman said the low-cost initiative gave locals such as those who already operated a home-based business, and currently relied on flyer printing and word of mouth for customers, an opportunity to see what sort of interest it would attract as a studio, shop, gallery or collaborative workspace in a busy commercial centre.
