The Right Commercial Space Location
Five Essential Things to Consider When Choosing Your Boston Metro Area Commercial Location
Whether you have already decided on a particular town or don’t have a clue as to where to begin, this section will provide some guidelines on choosing a location. There are a variety of tax and other financial incentives offered by the various communities in the area and we can explain which will be the most advantageous for your business.* Here are the other factors you should consider when scouting commercial space locations:
- Does the location meet your employees’ needs? Is it centrally located for the majority of your workers? Are there stores and services close enough to run errands at lunch or after work? Will your employees be traveling with or against the traffic flow? Is there a cafeteria in the building or quick food options nearby? We can prepare an aerial map of each building to show the locations of all amenities.
- What are the crime statistics in the neighborhood? Is there adequate security in the building? Do your employees feel safe walking in the area? If you would like this information, we will put together a report of crime trends in the area for you to peruse.
- Is the building conveniently located near the services you need to run your business? Can vendors and suppliers reach you easily? What is the courier service pick-up schedule? When does the mail arrive and how is it delivered to each business? How far away is the airport? We will help you find the answers to these questions and determine their suitability to your work environment.
- Are the structures surrounding the building primarily residential, commercial or a mix? Are they well cared-for or in need of repair? Is this the most beneficial environment for your business? We will help you analyze the surrounding environment and its potential effect on your business.
- What is the tenant mix in the building? Is there one principal tenant and many other smaller groups or are the businesses equal in size? Are the other tenants likely to attract customers who may be interested in your business' products or services? Are the existing building's tenants' relationships with the landlord friendly or contentious? As experienced commercial tenant agents, we will share our knowledge about the tenant mix and the experience and reputation of the landlord and/or management company.
