If you’ve been looking for an upmarket office space, whether for a long-term lease or hourly office rental, consider focusing your search on Class A buildings. In today’s post, 191 Works discusses the benefits of Class A buildings for law firms, marketing firms and other similar organizations.
The ABCs of Office Spaces
Office buildings are generally classified into these three categories:
Class A — These are the newest and highest-quality buildings. Being new means they’re up-to-date with modern building methods, feature high-quality infrastructure and are usually located in the best areas. These buildings attract consistent foot traffic and quality tenants, but also command the highest rents.
Class B — These buildings are typically older but not antiquated. Amenities are more than acceptable. Features like spacious elevators and relatively modern reception areas are present. With renovations and common area improvements, Class B buildings can be brought back to Class A.
Class C — These buildings are old but still basically functional. Location is typically subpar, but rent is very affordable.
The Benefits of Class A Offices
Image is a key for law, marketing and finance professionals. This is why it’s important to choose office spaces that will create a good first impression and pull clients in. It’s not just the façade, of course: office spaces with modern designs and up-to-date technology, from elevators to biometric entry and egress, will create that professional image that will impress clients and help attract more business. Class A offices may also have a conference room rental available when hosting events.
Choosing a strategic location allows easy transportation for clients and employees alike. Class A offices are typically located close to hotels, easy parking spaces and other needed amenities. Proximity to after-hours places such as cafes, restaurants and shopping centers can also be a plus for clients looking to unwind after visits.
