Percy’s Corner is located at 45 Nerang Street in the Gold Coast’s original Ambulance Station which was built in 1922. Our coffee shop is named after Percy Raby, the first Superintendent who ran the Station from the early 1920’s to 1940’s.
Originally built in 1922, our building boasts a rich history on the Gold Coast. Numerous alterations had been made during the 1950’s, 60’s and 70’s. The final addition in the 1970’s included the removal of some of the street facade and the use of a split faced block and screen wall area to conceal the domestic scale Ambulance building behind.

In 2002, at the ripe old age of 80, the building was completely restored to its original state. The building is now home to Co Spaces – a fully modernized co-working facility with tenants from industries such as Engineering, Events, Sporting, Creative, Entertainment, Tech, Legal, Accounting, Construction and retail.
