If you have thought about renting an office for rent, or perhaps already done some early information gathering, you know this to be true: an office for rent, or for that matter any quality commercial or industrial space for lease, in a good area, does not come cheap.
Can you afford $1500 or $2000 or more, per month, for an office for rent?
We can’t answer that question for you, but we can present two alternative ideas which may work for you considering the budget constraints you have. We are the Fort Worth Design District, and we like to think we have imaginative, creative solutions for those looking for professional property at a low cost. Call us at 817-439-3224 and tell us what you are looking for.
Now, though, let’s talk about two ways to cut costs when renting an office space for lease.
The beauty of a coworking space
If you are not familiar with coworking space, allow us to introduce you to it. Coworking space consists of a workplace where business professionals rent working stations, or individual private offices, but share common rooms like a lunchroom. The professionals are usually people from differing companies who only need an office for a few days, or they are traveling executives who need a professional space for a few days. It is the perfect solution for a small business owner who really doesn’t have the budget for a full-time office rental, or who may not really need a full-time office space for rent.
The obvious beauty of a coworking space is the savings in money. At Paddock Place Office Suites, a coworking facility in the Fort Worth Design District, coworking space can be rented for as low as $450 per month, and each office includes the following:
- 12’x14’ office
- Utilities included
- Window in each office
- Individual temperature controls
- WiFi included
- Private mailbox
- 24/7 access
Compare all that to the cost of a standard office in a standard business park or strip mall, and there really is no comparison. A coworking space represents rental savings of a thousand dollars or more.
It is definitely worth consideration if money is an issue for you.
Why not share an office?
One other money-saving solution is to share a traditional office with another company. You split the rent, split the utilities, split the cost of WiFi, have a shared receptionist, and you are in business for a fraction of the cost. We are seeing more and more small businesses adopt this approach, and we are seeing some very happy faces once they have tried this approach.
The savings, again, can be substantial. We have traditional offices for rent in our Golden Triangle Business Park, offices which run close to $2000 per month, but that cost is lowered greatly if you partition one office into two. The same can be done with an office warehouse for rent if you are looking for a small office/warehouse combination.
Again, the savings makes this worth consideration.
The bottom line here: there are creative solutions for commercial and industrial space for lease, and we love creativity at the Fort Worth Design District. In fact, we specialize in it!
