Question for you landlords: What would you do to get a tenant?
According to the Wall St. Journal article Offices Get Roughed Up to Lure Start-Up Tenants landlords in the hot San Francisco office market are willing to “rough up” their buildings to appeal to high tech tenants. Landlords are tearing out drop ceilings to expose mechanical components, sandblasting walls, and exposing wood panels.
High tech firms are seeking space that has an industrial and open layout. The article reports that these changes aren’t cheap and come with the risk that the trend among tenants might change.
Tell me landlords, What would you do to attract a tenant? Would you follow the pattern of these landlords?
