The history of lofts is an interesting one for sure, one worth mentioning before we get into the topic of an office loft suite for rent. Are you interested in renting a loft for an office? Remember this phone number: (817) 903-9435. Call us if, after reading this article, you think a commercial loft is right up your alley.
What is a loft?
Lofts were originally considered a living space just under the roof of a building. It dates back to Victorian times, the loft being a space inhabited by those who couldn’t afford anything better and who were willing to climb countless flights of stairs to get to their room.
Today, a loft is essentially the same, but it has a much more positive image in this age of gentrification. Lofts, often open in design, are very desirable spaces for businesses, and in particular for businesses dealing with creativity like architects, artists, design, and the like. Whereas a century ago they were considered the “bottom of the barrel” in real estate, today they are highly-sought after industrial properties for lease, usually carved out of old warehouses and refurbished with an expensive price tag to boot.

Do you really need a loft?
Which leads us to the question: do you really need one? This comes down to a related question: how much is ambiance worth to you as a small business owner? Quite frankly, most small business owners can’t afford an office loft, and many who can afford one really don’t need one. Why would a dry cleaners need an expensive office loft? The same question stands for a watch repair shop, or an insurance agency? On the other hand, a photographer might find a loft perfect, as would a sculptor or a think tank/makerspace occupant.
So it often comes down to that age-old debate, need versus want! You may want an office loft but you certainly don’t need one nor can you afford one.
But what if . . . what if you could have a taste of a loft without paying ridiculous prices for one in some gentrified building? What if there was a business park where offices could be leased which had an upstairs? And what if those offices could be had at a reasonable price? Would you be interested then?
