You’ve likely heard the term first-class used to refer to flights, but what about office spaces? First-class offices are becoming more popular in the world of office real estate and leasing, but many people still aren’t sure what they are. Let’s look at some of the ways a first-class office is different than a standard office.

A New Build

First-class offices tend to be in buildings that are much newer than those that hold a standard office. If they are in an older building, they’ve been renovated recently. The age of the space may not matter to all businesses, but some may see it as a valuable perk. A newer build typically comes with a better exterior that will give a great first impression. The interior of the building is less likely to need maintenance soon as well.

Better Commons Areas

First-class offices offer more amenities and improved common areas when compared to a standard office. These amenities may include:

  • On-site mailing services
  • Fitness center
  • Ample parking
  • Leisure areas (indoors and outdoors)
  • Cafeterias/ On-site restaurants and cafes

The amenities will improve your employee morale and client experience while they’re in the building. Of course, the added amenities typically mean that a first-class office comes with a higher price tag, but many would argue that they’re well worth the cost.

Better Location

Finding a standard office in a great location is possible. First-class offices typically only exist in prime locations. That means easier access for your clients and employees thanks to public transport systems and plenty of parking areas. If an office space is located in a major building downtown or surrounded by other popular businesses, it’s likely a first-class office space. The right location is a matter of convenience more than anything else. You will have a bigger pool to choose from when seeking out potential clients and new employees, as well as other businesses with which to network. Making the choice to go for a first-class office over a standard office is one that comes down to your individual needs and budget restrictions.
