About 63% of the office spaces in the Old Town are subleases, so you might be able to sign a shorter term by taking over a previous lease. There aren't many listings below 2,000 square feet on the market, so finding a space for a small business might be tough.

Not much of the real estate is used for commercial space, so it might be hard to find office space. Health care is the dominant industry in this area.
