In the Northern Suburbs there are many innovative small business people and entrepreneurs of all ages working out of their own homes. For some people, this can be isolating and demotivating. They need a place to profile their work, connect and collaborate with others and grow their businesses. Sub Urban aims to meet this need.

Sub Urban is a social enterprise that provides desks for rent, bookable meeting rooms, co-workers to collaborate with and a wider enterprise community to belong to.


Sub Urban is the first co-working space of it’s kind in NZ - a space that celebrates and supports the wealth of enterprise, entrepreneurship and innovation in the suburbs building on the richness of community connections in the suburbs. 


Johnsonville Shopping Centre is proud to support Sub Urban through a partnership with Urban Dream Brokerage, providing an opportunity to launch this concept from a retail shop in the Shopping Centre. This will give this small businesses a unique opportunity to grow their profile and their customer base - making the Northern Suburbs a more thriving and resilient community.


Sub Urban has brought a broad range of new businesses to Johnsonville, including Software Developers, Electrical Contractors, Life Coaching, Real Estate Agency, Graphic Designers, Virtual Reality Sales, Business Mentors and Accounting Services.
