If you’ve been shopping for office space, it may all start to look the same after awhile. Oh clearly, there are those dark, dingy 1970s and 1980s complexes that haven’t had a dime spent on them in 30 years or more that you wouldn’t waste any time on. But once you eliminate those, there are still a number of complexes where the office space all seems pretty much the same from one to the next.
So how do you decide? Obviously, price and location are important. But again, typically you get what you pay for – closer-in locations and special areas (such as downtown Palo Alto) cost more, and farther-out locations cost less.
But there are other considerations that can make a big difference in productivity and efficiency for you and your people: Amenities.
Impressing Clients and Enhancing your Work Environment
For example, for some of the smallest start-ups, the space might consist of a handful of cubicles. If a client comes to see you, what do you do – pull up a chair next to your desk? Not very impressive.
Even if your company has a couple of private offices to go with open office space, if you’re trying to make a presentation to a key client or hold a meeting involving 10 to 12 people, you’re out of luck.
Fremont Business Park has a really nice-sized common conference room, equipped with meeting tools such as a multimedia projector and Internet access, where you can really get down to business – even if a dozen people are involved. And it can be reserved at no additional charge by any business at Fremont Business Park.
Also, many studies have shown that people are more productive when they work out daily than if they lead a sedentary lifestyle. But it can be hard to drag yourself out of bed at 5:00 a.m. to go to a fitness center before work, or take up evening family time. That’s why Christy Street’s on-site gym is perfect – tenants and their employees can squeeze a workout in at lunch or, in fact, anytime to enhance productivity.
Easy Commutes and Ready Access to Dining and Services
What else, you say? Well, Fremont Business Park is two minutes from I-880 at Auto Mall Parkway in southern Fremont for fast and easy commutes and trips to call on clients. In addition, Pacific Commons shopping center is a one-minute drive (or an inviting five-minute walk!) with plenty of breakfast, lunch or dinner dining options as well as shopping and needed services.
What’s more, there’s an AC Transit stop right in front of the complex that provides quick, direct bus service to and from the Fremont BART station for employees that choose that commute option. And no need to stand around waiting for the bus to arrive. Just click this real-time bus tracker from your laptop, smart phone or PDA to learn when AC Transit Bus 212 should arrive.
In short: at Fremont Business Park, you get great office space that has been transformed by a $2.5 million renovation and affordable lease rates – plus amenities that deliver enormous value to you and your employees, regardless of the size of your company.
Christy Street has been more than 95% leased for most of the summer. But now a few spaces are opening up. To learn more, e-mail Lee Jatta, or call (408) 520-2437. DRE License #01828564
