What does it cost to lease industrial space? The answer to that question is going to vary depending upon where you are located because, well, the price is almost always influenced by location, location, and location again. However, we can give you a guestimate and, as an added bonus, at the end of this article, we will tell you about affordable industrial properties for lease in the Fort Worth area.

What you can expect to pay for industrial space
Industrial space is prices according to the square foot, as you surely already know. Thus, the larger the property, the higher the price.
We have seen industrial property for rent run as low as $.85 per square foot/monthly, and we have seen specialized industrial properties run as high as $9.00 per square foot/monthly. Stated a different way, let’s consider a warehouse for rent which is 20,000 square feet in size. Even at the low price of $1.00 per square foot, you could expect to pay $20,000 per month to rent that space. Smaller spaces, of course, would cost less, so a 2,000 square foot space might only cost $2,000 per month to rent.
Is industrial space expensive everywhere?
Are these prices for industrial property for lease standard across the United States? Certainly not, but they are representative of industrial space in desired locations. It is still quite possible to find great deals on industrial space, but the location may not be the best, or it may be found in very depressed locations where it is very difficult to support any business.
A brilliant alternative in the Fort Worth area
For those small business owners who think that all may be lost, that there is no chance you will ever be able to lease industrial space, there is a location in the Fort Worth area, designed especially for small business owners, where it is still possible to rent industrial space for under $1000 per month, and that place is Box Office Warehouse Suites, located in the Fort Worth Design District in North Fort Worth.
Box Office Warehouse Suites is unique in that all industrial space is made from retrofitted and repurposed shipping containers. A warehouse for rent, an office warehouse for rent, flex space, a shop for rent, a garage for rent, all can be had for as low as $975 per month at Box Office Warehouse Suites, and that is a price which is hard to match anywhere else in Tarrant County.
Why is the price so low? Simply because the construction costs were low, and those savings are passed along to those who are leasing the properties. It’s really simple economics, but in this case, the savings are not gobbled up by the property management firm but, instead, by those who lease the properties.
