Shell Space: A Blank Canvas to Build Your Ideal Office


Written by on October 10th, 2017

If you are purchasing new commercial space, standard practice is for the developer to finish the exterior of the building and rough-in the interior, leaving the layout, design and finishings up to you. This makes sense considering no two business needs are exactly alike and most businesses investing in commercial space will want to optimize their space for their business needs.

However, unless you are an architect, engineer, interior designer, general contractor, or something similar, visualizing the type of space that could be created from the basic shell can often be challenging. When we purchase residential real estate, typically you see the finished product – exactly what you would be moving into. Walls are up, rooms are defined, flooring is in, walls have been painted, countertops on, etc. It doesn’t create a whole lot of creative thinking or visualization to picture yourself living in and enjoying the space.

If you are contemplating an investment in commercial property, how do you go about visualizing what your office space could look like, and whether the benefits will be worth the costs? With a modern, west-coast design, featuring vaulted ceilings, large windows, and plenty of natural light, the units in Building B at Pacific Station provide an ideal framework for you to design a showcase office, sure to impress not only your clients, but to assist you in growing your business by attracting the best and the brightest in your industry who will undoubtedly welcome the opportunity to work in such an impressive space. Without the ability to visualize the potential, an incredible opportunity may be overlooked.

With that in mind, please take the opportunity to check out some amazing technology that showcases the potential of these roughly 2,000 square foot units. Featured in the video is unit 201, but all four upper level units would have similar design potential. With flexible unit configuration, you can also combine multiple units to fit the needs of your larger professional practice.

I’m sure you will agree that these shell spaces provide a rare opportunity with incredible potential to build the office of your dreams. We’d welcome the opportunity to introduce you to the site, and tour you through the remaining available units.
