Where and How to Find Office Space for Rent Near You

Businesses large and small are embracing the alternatives to long term office leasing. Particularly in this new economy where staff are highly mobile and supported by the technology to work anywhere, anytime, the traditional long-term office lease is no longer the best solution for every company.


  1. Asses Your Office Requirements
    • Your first step should be to establish your needs according to your business and staff requirements
    • Decide the area you need based on the number of workstations, or private offices
    • Decide the physical location based on commuting and your client’s convenience
    • Consider needs of staff and clients, particularly parking. Paid parking is a nuisance
  2. Create A Budget
    • Once you are clear on the list of requirements, set a budget consistent with the scale of your business
    • Unlike a long-term lease, Business Centres provide an “all in” monthly price without a concern about utilities, maintenance, cleaning etc.
    • Lease obligations are typically annual, although month/ month options are often available
  3. Identify A Suitable Space
    • Class A, High rise office tower, prestigious, excellent customer impression.
    • Class B, Older high rise or low rise commercial, a good choice for a task-oriented business with little client interactions.
    • Class C, Older low rise, may be in an industrial or retail setting. Good for a limited budget, with little or no client interaction on site.
  4. Tour the Various Office Spaces
    • Select 3-5 options to get a sense of pricing and service levels
    • Clarify “additional costs” like the use of the kitchen
    • Consider your client and their experience when visiting the location
    • Consider your staff, their comfort, security and convenience
  5. Select the Best Option
    • Every business has a unique requirement, so select the facility that best meets your needs.
    • Consider amenities, and services to support your clients. Are the staff attentive and accommodating? Is the quality of the facility consistent with your brand and the impression you are trying to make?  Inconsistencies will resonate with your clients and staff and could impact your success.

  • I can’t go with any other choice...

    When I started my engineering business 4 years ago, I was looking for a space where it’s cost effective and at a prime location. It was a challenge! This is the best I could find, close to my home so the driving was faster, also the reception is exceptionally good. When you walk in the office, the welcoming atmosphere, the options I have here, I can’t go with any other choice.

  • You have the necessary simple structure which allows you to focus on your day to day job.

    We’ve been doing this for almost 8+ years on a full-time basis, and I’ve been with Officescape for just over 5 years at this point. Pretty much the length of our practice, we’ve been part of a certain shared office center. With Officescape, you get the advantage of amazing office space, professional staff to greet your clients, and not worrying about unnecessary procedures. You have the necessary simple structure, which allows you to focus on your day to day job.

  • It’s very professional and they don’t even know that its not our office!

    We started using Officescape primarily because we needed an address for mailing purposes and for our product. I use them for meeting rooms as well, when I bring my buyers in. It’s very professional and they don’t even know that that is not our Maxell office. It’s important for us to keep our profile image. Having a company in Canada for 16 years, our buyers are coming into our offices all the time, we still needed a space to have that place for our buyers to come visit us and vice versa.

  • My experience has been very positive!

    I chose Officescape because the staff are really friendly, I found them really helpful and really resourceful. I also find the building to be really clean and really bright, I like some of the architectural design. They always greet my clients very friendly, always offer them coffee, tea, water and always say goodbye to them when they leave. My experience at Officescape has been very positive!
