About 11% of the office spaces in the Metzger are subleases, so you might be able to find a shorter term or below market rent. There aren't many listings below 2,000 square feet available, so finding a space for a small business might be tough.
The standard measurement for office space in this area is around 1,600 sqft. Most properties in this market are close to 2 floors. Most buildings in this area were built in 1988 and are Class A.
Not much of the real estate is used for commercial space, so it might be hard to find office space. Finance and insurance are the dominant industries in this market. Most of the occupants of Metzger work from home. Commuting around 30 minutes a day is the norm for those who opt to reside in this part of town.
