By design, mixed-use precincts tend to deliver a superior lifestyle when compared to traditional urban settings. And businesses that operate within these precincts benefit from the infrastructure, environment and facilities. Here’s a closer look at each of these elements.
The infrastructure in mixed-use precincts is typically well-managed and regularly maintained, and may provide everything from fibre-enabled connectivity to energy-efficient lighting and sustainable water sources.
Mixed-use precincts tend to provide a safe, secure and dynamic environment for those who live or work in the precinct, as they often include a variety of retail and convenience stores, plenty of restaurant and coffee shop options as well as health facilities like spas or fitness centres. In addition, dependable Wi-Fi and fibre connections mean that employees can work from anywhere within the precinct.
Having access to plenty of lifestyle facilities and amenities, as well as the freedom to work remotely on occasion, can help to improve employee happiness, wellbeing and productivity.
Offices and workspaces in mixed-use precincts usually have the upper hand over more traditional work environments when it comes to adaptability. Generally, businesses in these precincts do not need to rent a large premises with multiple meeting rooms, boardrooms and video-conferencing facilities. Instead, they can rent only the space they need for day-to-day operations (which can help to reduce overheads) and make use of the available facilities located within the precinct as and when needed. For example, many mixed-use precincts include hotels or shared workspace facilities, where additional work and meeting areas can be hired on an ad-hoc basis.
