Compared to the rest of the Seattle Metropolitan Area market, the Broadway region has higher rates, and you'll need to pay a premium to be in this hot submarket.
In the last 90 days, 5 listings have come on the market, which means listings are probably going fast. You'll want to be prepared to tour spaces as quick as possible. About 20% of the listings in the Broadway 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 1,430 sqft. Most buildings in this market are approximately 3 floors. Most buildings in this area were built in 1918 and are Class B.
Not much of the real estate is used for commercial space, so it might be hard to find office space. Information is the dominant industry in this region. Most of the folk of Broadway work from home. Commuting approximately 10 minutes a day is the norm for those who opt to reside in this part of town.
