Since 2011, we have paired over 400 tenants across 20,000m2 of floorspace.

 

These tenants have ranged from shop-keepers to furniture makers, sculptors to costumer designers, and writers to lawyers. Brand-new businesses to long-term operators. And our filled spaces have included an ex-department store, an old brewery warehouse, a forgotten turn-of-the-century ballroom, and an empty police barracks.

We're passionate about our cities and how we can best utilise them to provide vibrancy and opportunity for all; tenants and owners alike.

We belong to both worlds. We understand property, and we understand communities. Our role is to sit in this middle ground and facilitate favourable conditions for all parties.

We work with developers, building owners, asset managers, and governments to create flexible, affordable, and connected communities of enterprise.


Spacemarket is doing some of the most important work across Perth. It’s now hard to imagine Fremantle without a Spacemarket project.
