It’s a solution to workspace issues most business people never consider, using a shipping container instead of some high-price industrial property. They don’t tend to consider it because they have an outdated vision of what shipping containers were in the past . . . rusted, drab metal storage units found down on the docks, on the backs of semi-trucks, or being used as office on construction sites.
But a new day is dawning, my friends, and the sun is shining brightly on the future of shipping containers. Today containers are being used as shop space for lease, as warehouse space for rent, as office space, retail leases, hobby shops, and garages and so much more. Smart developers are gobbling up old shipping containers and retrofitting them to fit their needs.
And why not, really? Shipping containers are relatively inexpensive since they have already been construction. They are flexible in design and can be added on to quite easily. They are eco-friendly since they do not have to be framed and thus do not require another tree to be cut down, and they are just funky enough to appeal to the forward-thinking small business person.
Having said all that, there are still those reading this article who can’t move on from that antiquated view of the old rusted shipping containers. To those people we say check out Box Office Warehouse Suites in North Fort Worth, the first, and only, business park in Fort Worth made entirely from shipping containers. There you will find a business park with office space for rent (anchor tenants Happy Bank ATM Center and Salon & Spa Galleria), retail lease property, makerspace, hobby shop space, and warehouse space. Thirty-eight suites for rent have been made available made from 100 shipping containers, professionally designed by Hue Architecture, all the modern conveniences and amenities. Quite frankly, you will find the funkiest, hippest business environment in the State of Texas.
Check it out! Check out the bright colors, the street art/graffiti art, the one of a kind work atmosphere, and the inspirational vibes. Talk to the leasing agent and be prepared to be amazed at the inexpensive leasing costs and the bang for the buck you will get. Don’t forget to ask your leasing agent just how eco-friendly a container property can be. Ask about business expansion opportunities with how flexible these buildings are; how easily retrofitted they are, and how they are suitable for practically any purpose and any dream.
Why rent there, or for that matter, why rent at a shipping container facility?
A better question would be why not rent there?
