The Porter was established at 1 O’Connell St in a Lend Lease property as a Haworth xFriends project in May 2014. It provides informal meeting settings and private meeting rooms for residents and members, with memberships from $275 per month for tenants, and venue hire discounts for tenants.
Prior to the Porter, the building was suffering from low occupancy at only 18%. Since the opening of the Porter, and development of the lobby area, the building occupancy has boosted to 95%.
CoActiv8 has supported Haworth as a xFriends partner in the development of The Porter with concepts that support the activation of the space and engagement with its users.
