The Class A Office Space Difference
Class A office space is the most prestigious office space, offering a prime location, the highest quality construction, state of the art technology systems and energy efficient policies. It also typically means that there will be a central lobby, high ceilings and high-end furnishings.
When compared to the other grades of office space, B and C, class A is the top of the line in aesthetics, fixtures, amenities, systems and management. And while class A may cost a bit more, the price is reflected in the quality of the building and management, not to mention the location.
Making the Move to a Commercial Real Estate Rental
At some point, for many entrepreneurs and small business owners, the need for an office space outside of the home becomes apparent, as your company grows and your needs change. But making the leap to commercial property ownership can carry some harsh costs. And for a new business that can be risky. This is why many entrepreneurs decide to lease commercial property instead. Reasons for renting commercial property as opposed to purchasing include:
- Short-term affordability
- Less responsibility for common area maintenance and upgrades
- Opportunities for growth
- A prime location that may not be affordable or available for purchase
- A built-in community of other interesting business with whom to potentially collaborate and interact
What’s more, when you lease a commercial space at the “2nd Floor Suites” through Chinburg Properties, hospitality Wi-Fi and access to conference rooms, kitchen and café spaces, and storage and shower spaces. You’ll also have the opportunity to live in the same building that you work in, if you really want to maximize convenience—and you can’t get a much easier commute than that!
