Flex Space for Lease
Flex space is commonly used to describe industrial space that is a combination of non-airconditioned warehouse space with airconditioned office space and or showroom space attached. Many multi-unit industrial building complexes have flex spaces. The size range and options can vary greatly. For instance, a small flex space would be a single garage style warehouse big enough to park a work van in with two or three offices attached. A large flex space would be a 50,000 S/F of warehouse with loading docks and forklift ramps attached to 10,000 S/F of office and showroom space. The range of companies utilizing flex space varies greatly as well. For instance, a tech company could be in the same flex space complex as general contractor. The appeal is saving money without decreasing business.
