And, now, a primer on Alliance shipping containers and how they are changing the landscape in Fort Worth commerce.
The changing commercial landscape
Commercial property for rent, and by that we mean traditional commercial property for rent, is changing in the Fort Worth area and, truthfully, across the nation. Part of this change can certainly be attributed to the pandemic, but truthfully this change has been slowly happening for a number of years. Retail shops and office buildings were emptying in the main downtown corridors, across America, for five, ten years prior to COVID. Home-based businesses were increasing at the same time. Remote work opportunities were increasing. Creative new ways to utilize space were being tested and found to be profitable.
The old ways of the 20th Century were found to be wanting, and that wanting necessitated changes.
It’s not that there is a lack of demand for products and services. Some corporations, like Walmart, have seen record sales since the virus was first mentioned. Many sectors of our economy have seen huge increases in business during what was certainly a major recession.
The point is this: There is still a demand for products and services, but the way those products and services are delivered to the public is changing rapidly, and where those products and services are kept/stored is also changing.
Traditional commercial and industrial property is transforming
Change comes slowly in the business world. Economic forecasters predicted these changes a decade ago, but the predicted physical changes to the landscape have taken some time to catch up to the predictions.
“For sale” and “for rent” signs can be found seemingly everywhere in cities across this nation, but demand remains strong. Traditional commercial and industrial space for lease are sitting empty, and yet thriving businesses need a physical place from which to conduct business. It seems like a riddle, but it actually points to the changes happening as you read this article, and one such change is the way commercial and industrial property is constructed.
Smaller is better. Less-expensive is better. Flexibility in design is better. And those three criteria point directly to the increase in demand for Alliance shipping containers and their transformation as viable retail space for rent, office space for rent, and shop for rent. The same can be said for flex space, for coworking space, and other innovative approaches to traditional space issues.
