Derbes Falgoust Commercial Real Estate
Scot's Take - Office
Baton Rouge, La. ~ January 2020
Convenience, location and ease of access are the leading factors suburban office buildings with Class A amenities have that continue to attract tenants for their corporate and satellite office requirements. Also described as Garden Offices, these buildings are situated within professionally landscaped office condominium parks that offer attractive architectural interior and exterior finishes, typically no more than two story, and ample parking that allows tenants to drive up to, park and walk directly into their leased space. This has been a popular alternative to CBD and other high-rise office buildings with regulated operating business hours that require offsite or limited available garage parking spaces.
Suburban offices in Baton Rouge are typically centrally located along growth corridors that offer walkable access or short driving distance to nearby residential housing and apartments, restaurants, banking and retail centers. It’s been especially attractive to the service industry as the locations offer convenience to their respective clients. These include law, accounting, real estate, insurance, financial, consultants and contractors. Specialty medical and dental are commonly located in many of the parks.
