Commercial office space is used by businesses exclusively for administrative and management activities and
can range from urban skyscrapers and high-rise properties to smaller buildings grouped in suburban office
parks. Office space is often formatted based on the specific needs of a company and includes traditional
office, creative office, co-working space, executive suites, and flex space. Properties can be leased by
multiple tenants or occupied by one company.
There are three primary classifications of office space, which vary by the property’s age, location, accessibility, quality of infrastructure and amenities. A Coldwell Banker Commercial® affiliated professional can help you understand the pros and cons of each class for your specific business needs.
Often the most sought-after category, Class A commercial office space includes newer buildings with quality infrastructure, aesthetics, upkeep, and location. Popular features may include desirable amenities, upgraded fixtures, high-quality HVAC systems, and environmentally friendly features. Be accessible conveniently in high-traffic areas and near major roadways and airports. Properties with a reputable management company and history of quality long-term tenants make these an attractive investment opportunity.
Class B buildings may have less attractive locations or are older yet still well maintained. Because they often offer similar benefits as Class A properties – professional management companies, quality tenants and good access – Class B properties can be an appealing investment opportunity. With simple upgrades and repairs, these properties can increase in value and even move up to Class A.
Commercial office properties with less desirable locations, minimal amenities and a more dated appearance, Class C space requires more money and effort to attract tenants. While these properties typically are 20 years old or more, they may be an attractive option for investors seeking to rehab a large section of buildings or for smaller investors without the budget to invest in Class A or B. With property attention and maintenance, Class C properties can be upgraded to Class B but will unlikely ever reach Class A due to their location and age.
