How to make your commercial property stand out
The drive for quality in commercial properties – how to make your property stand out from the rest
According to Colliers International Research's latest review of the Auckland metropolitan office market (2019), demand for commercial properties is high, vacancy rates are down and tenants looking for higher quality spaces.
For landlords, this means that in order to attract great tenants, you’ll need to provide great workspaces.
A high quality space will attract a high quality tenant. Here are four things that will help place your commercial space a cut above the rest.
Modern and fresh
In this age of social media and transparency, back-of-house spaces are no longer invisible. Whether you are posting pictures online or video conferencing from your laptop, your space needs to be Instragram ready – or Instagrammable (yip that’s actually a word now!). No one wants to see ugly bare walls or messy storage in the background. Think about the message that the office surroundings would send to customers.
Technology is an essential part of doing business. Equipping your property with the best technology will increase it appeal to businesses who rely on it. Think ultrafast broadband, security systems, electric vehicle charging, USB wall plugs, and so much more.
Flexible workspace are in demand as the breeding ground for collaborative thinking. More important than the ability to change and update the fit-out, being flexible means being able to accommodate modern ways of working. Open plan, cellular, hot-desking, rent-a-desk, shared spaces, flexible spaces – there is no end to the options possible.
Acting positively to reduce the effects of climate change is our responsibility and won’t go unnoticed by potential tenants and their customers. Consider carefully your choices around heating, cooling and construction and be clear about the considerations you made in making your choices. Other things to think about include ways to save water and optimise window and insulation performance.
