It’s become quite popular to make offices stand out for all sorts of reasons. Whether you’re looking to attract employees, enjoy unique locales, or trim back on the spending without sacrificing workflow, there are some great Orlando office space making things work. Here are some examples:
- The balcony. Jones Lang LaSalle is a real estate brokerage firm downtown, and not surprisingly, they’ve got the connections to find great office space. One of the best things about their office, however, is the nice wide balcony. With comfortable chairs and cool tables, it’s a great place for staff to have lunch or al fresco meetings, as well as awesome receptions and other events, complete with a view of the other great buildings in the downtown area.
- The boxcar. If you’re a train lover, this is the office for you. Complete with colorful awnings and conveniently located near the CSX railroad tracks in downtown Winter Park, six of these boxcars were converted into office spaces. A great conversation piece, these 440-square-foot offices are appropriate for a solopreneur—or you could splurge on the double-car 880-square-foot version for a bit more leg room.
- The hotel room. Maya Angelou rented a hotel room by the month, wherever she lived, and used it as her office. Orlando hotels have been known to remove the bedroom furniture and set up office spaces to rent when times were tough; perhaps they got the idea from her. Certainly the free wifi and morning coffee from the breakfast bar are great incentives to get to work on time.
- The free range. Siemens AG downsized their offices from 70,000 to 55,000 square feet two years ago, providing only 77 work stations for every 100 employees. This allows employees to set up shop for the day in whatever office space is available, and keeps anyone from developing a sense of territoriality or superiority about having a corner office.
So if you’re looking for unique or quirky office space, consider some of these unusual options and if you’re looking for other great Orlando office space, contact us today for some help.
