Leasing is an opportunity to reduce costs, evaluate space efficiencies, maximize flexibility options and promote your company brand through space design. In a dynamic and sophisticated market like the DC Metropolitan Area where professional (and often institutional) landlords dominate the landscape, leasing office space can seem like a daunting task for any company. Compound an already arduous process with the task of making sure you don’t overcommit beyond existing contract work, but maintain the room to grow as you continue to win business, and the role of decision maker for a government contractor is especially difficult. This often results in companies taking what appears to be the path of least resistance, oversimplifying the process and missing out on an opportunity. Fortunately, there are ways to streamline the leasing process and ensure you do not fall victim to common pitfalls.
This FREE two-hour seminar will be facilitated by Michael Alcamo, Managing Partner at The Tenant Agency, a commercial real estate company.
The topics of this breakfast seminar include:
- Recognizing where your leverage lies and reducing occupancy cost, even if you’re in a long term lease.
- Maintaining the flexibility to grow and contract throughout the life of a lease. Contracts come and go. Your space should offer the flexibility to expand and contract accordingly.
- Understanding economic incentives. Jurisdictional incentives are an overlooked aspect of most real estate transactions – you do not have to be a Fortune 500 company to qualify.
- Educating yourself on workplace strategies, technical space design/construction (SCIF, data center, etc.), and learn how to ensure relocation & buildout costs are covered by the landlord concession package.
