For the last 14 weeks the Unicorn team have all been working from home. So, maybe we really moved 14 weeks ago and we just didn’t realise.
Whilst we have used our office at Tarleton Street for some of our regular monthly client meetings, the fact is that most of us have enjoyed working from home, productivity hasn’t declined and most video meetings have been efficient and effective. Accordingly when a strong international tenant expressed interest in a long term lease, I decided to lease out our building and move to a smaller building we own at 64 Best Street in Devonport.
The lease was agreed at 7:00 pm on Friday, we finished moving out at 1:30 pm on Sunday and Petuna Pty Ltd started moving in this morning.
We will continue working at home for another week or two while we set up our new office. Our plan is that the team will have the flexibility to work at home and have an office available when required. Accordingly the new office will be open to clients on an appointment only basis.
We will miss this view shown in the above photo taken by my 11 year old daughter (Zara) yesterday, but maybe after 9 years at Tarleton Street it is time for a change.
