In the last 90 days, 59 listings have come on the market, so you'll want to check back regularly for new listings. About 7% of the available leases in the Metzger are subleases, so you will probably need to consider the implications of signing a direct lease with the building.

The standard measurement for office space in this area is around 1,850 sqft. Most properties in this region are close to 2 stories. Most buildings in this region 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 region. 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.
