About Seattle Shared Office Space

The more you learn about “Shared office space,” and its many benefits, the more you will never want to go back to renting “traditional office space.” Shared office space is generally situated in a regular office complex where offices are all linked by a common corridor. The layout allows easy access to common areas like kitchens and meeting rooms. The main benefit to shared offices are the shared costs, which include things like receptionists, mail services, and professional office support staff ready to help “get it done!” You can have a full-time office support staff for a “part-time” price.

Business Service Center is one of downtown Seattle’s leading office space rental providers and offers flexible leases, both short-term and long-term, in different sizes and at reasonable prices. We also provide day rental options for meeting rooms and select office spaces.

5 Things To Consider When Looking For An Executive Suite

Finding office space in Seattle, or anywhere else, can be a challenge. It’s different from looking for a house to purchase or an apartment to rent. Looking for an office space to rent involves many variables that should be considered.

Here are a few things you need to know before beginning your search for office space in Seattle.

  1. The Rentable Square Footage

This pertains to the total amount of space that you must pay. This includes the usable square footage and the common-area space. Once you know what you’re paying for, it’s important to know what a quoted rental rate is. Rent for executive suites is usually quoted on a monthly basis.

Not all “shared office space” is calculated the same. So pay close attention to these two factors:

      • Usable square footage factor: This refers to the actual amount of space that you can use as a tenant.
      • Common area factor: This shows the rate of space shared within a building that you’ll pay on top of the usable square footage. Common spaces may include kitchens and restrooms.
  1. Location

Location is very important when selecting an office space for your business. The perfect Seattle location should be easily accessible to your clients and employees. Think about the amenities near the office. Is there a gym or a coffee shop nearby?

Business Service Center shared offices are located in Seattle’s Safeco Plaza. The building is 50 stories tall and is located right in the center of the downtown business district in Seattle. Additionally, Safeco Plaza is conveniently located within minutes from the light rail and bus transportation, which means you and your clients and staff can get to the office without any hassle.

  1. Size

The size of your office space is another important factor to consider when choosing the best office space for your business needs. The general rule is to allow 70 square feet per person. If you think that your business needs a bigger space, then you can increase this figure appropriately.

BSC also offers limited monthly use of meeting and conference rooms with the option to increase usage to meet your needs.

  1. Style

Quite often, the style of the office space is often overlooked when looking for new offices. While overlooked, we can’t discount the importance of style.

Your choice of office space can be a powerful branding tool for your business. If you want to create a professional brand image, look for a building that emphasizes and supports an environment of dedicated professionals. From the moment you enter Seattle’s Safeco Plaza, you feel an energy that can help fuel any entrepreneur.  You will be proud to display pictures of your office space on your website and display a prestigious address located in the very heart of Seattle’s downtown business district.

The good news is that Seattle’s Safeco Plaza is one of the most distinguished buildings Seattle has to offer. When you enter the BSC lobby, you’ll always be greeted by the friendly reception staff. Anyone can instantly see that at Safeco Placa business gets done right.

  1. Asking the Right Questions

Looking for space doesn’t end in touring several offices and choosing the best one. As a prospective tenant, you should ask all the important questions. For example, the building hours, the usage of shared facilities, and handling of maintenance issues.

With a Business Service Center shared office rentals you have 24-hour access, seven days per week. That means using your office anytime you want.

Benefits Of Renting A BSC Office Space 

If you work alone, your most affordable option is likely working from home. However, it does get lonely at times and some domestic distractions may impede the progress of your work. For a small enterprise, a traditional office is often very expensive and may also require a long-term commitment.

Regardless of what lease term or size of office you choose, BSC offers their tenants access to several office support services including kitchen facilities, meeting rooms, and an appointed lobby. Isn’t that way better than paying for utilities and amenities when leasing office space?

BSC allows you to use the conference room for about ten hours per month. (options to add additional time is available. The appointed lobby comes with a receptionist who will greet your guests accordingly. The kitchen is equipped with coffee, tea, and vending machines.

The beauty of having a BSC office space is the ability to work in an efficient corporate environment without putting a large capital investment up-front. BSC office rentals offer value-added amenities, like a receptionist, notary public services, and a professional business address.

The receptionist will greet your guests and answer your calls politely. The professional business address allows you to receive mail and adds an element of prestige when you tell people about your business. While you’re away, the receptionist can get your mail and place it in your office.
