What if we were to tell you that we know of some commercial space for lease that is quite affordable? Would you be interested?
The commercial space we are talking about happens to be in Fort Worth, Texas, but what they have done there could easily be done in any city in America.
So read on and learn!
In understanding how commercial suites for lease can be inexpensive, one must first take an online trip to Box Office Warehouse Suites, the first, and only, business park in Fort Worth, Texas, made entirely from shipping containers.
That’s right, we said shipping containers!
Box Office Warehouse Suites offers thirty-eight business suites made from one-hundred retrofitted and redesigned shipping containers. It is, without a doubt, the most unique business park in Fort Worth, and it is also one of the least expensive business parks in that area.
Think about it! Construction costs are tied up into labor and materials, and easily the most costs are in lumber. Shipping containers are already constructed, which means lower costs, and lower costs mean less leasing expense.
Pretty simple, really!
Shipping containers are the perfect solution for small businesses because they are inexpensive and they are flexible. A small business owner can lease one container, 320 square feet, at a low price, and then grow in size as needed by 320 square foot increments. It is no longer necessary for a small business owner to lease a space which is much-too large for that business. Containers are the next best thing to having a home-based business in size and cost. They are perfect for minimalists who like to pare down to basics when running a business. They are perfect for so many uses, from retail space to office space, from warehouse space to shops for rent. The same shipping container could be a small convenience store, a lawyer’s office, a small warehouse, an artist studio, or a repair shop. The retrofitting and designing to meet individual needs takes very little time, making them the perfect solution for any developer looking for a broader market.
But don’t take our word for it. Listen to Ron Sturgeon, owner and developer of Box Office Warehouse Suites, and also the owner of over one-million square feet of traditional commercial property in the Fort Worth area.
“Containers are remarkable,” Sturgeon says. “I wish I would have known about them ten years ago. I could have saved myself a lot of construction costs. We bought ours from Container King, we had the whole project professionally designed by Hue Architecture, and we had it all constructed at a fraction of the cost of traditional building. This, in my opinion, is the wave of the future in real estate development.”
Next time that you drive by a warehouse or business park and see a sign that reads “industrial lease space,” remember that there is a less-expensive alternative. Shipping container commercial space will revolutionize how we all think about commercial property. It is true in Fort Worth, Texas, and it will be true in your area soon.
