Generator is expanding into swanky new Central Auckland digs

Generator is opening up a new space in Auckland’s Takutai Square – just the latest sign that the City of Sails’ co-working scene is looking pretty healthy.

Occupying three floors at 11 Britomart Place right near the glistening waterfront, the site will include two large premium boardrooms, an in-house café, and dual members-only private lounge bars, as well as private lift access. The fitout will be further enhanced by extensive sea views, which tenants will be able to enjoy from any of the numerous balconies.

Oh, and the new location will also offer a raft of high-end serviced office options for residents seeking a greater level of privacy, with spaces designed to cater for teams of between five and 30 individuals.

Generator CEO and co-founder Ryan Wilson claims that upon launch the Takutai Square space will be best in class, not just domestically but in the world. No biggie. “Each and every aspect of the Generator experience has always been designed with the aim of providing that next level of service for our members,” he says. “Spaces that are vibrant, aesthetically impressive, professional, and which are purpose-built to offer businesses the ‘perfect fit’ space for them, whatever their needs.”

He says more. “As New Zealand businesses continue to grow and shine on the world stage, they increasingly want the option of working out of this sort of world-class facility. There’s definite demand for a premium co-working and serviced office experience that reflects that global standing, and Takutai Square will deliver on that.”

The pending launch of the new site continues a recent burst of growth for Generator – coming hot on the heels of the grand opening of its two new spaces within the GridAKL Wynyard Quarter Innovation Precinct: Mason Brothers and 12 Madden Street.

The Takutai Square space will be available for tenancy from May 2018.

Here's how the space looked before Generator took over:
