FORT WORTH, TX, March 05, 2018 /24-7PressRelease/ -- From Melbourne to Miami, cities are embracing the idea of enclaves designed to give creative entrepreneurs in design related field to work have an opportunity to office in a community that understands them. The center of the district is an innovative brightly hued business park made from more than 100 shipping containers.
The new 40-acre Fort Worth Design District is just North of Fort Worth City limits and South of Alliance at the Golden Triangle Area of I-35 and will feature a mix of shops, studio spaces, workshops, distribution centers, light industrial space for makers, spaces for Etsy stores and creative micro enterprises.
"Creatives want to work in neighborhoods that are thoughtfully designed, pleasing to the eye and fun" said Ron Sturgeon, owner of RDS Real Estate in Fort Worth and creator of the visionary concept.
Box Office Warehouse Suites offers fully finished spaces starting at only 320 square feet with mini kitchen and ADA compliant restrooms. The beauty of a shipping container business park is that an entrepreneur can add space as the business grows by adding another container.
"It's wonderful to be able to say to a business that you can expand without changing your address in most cases," said Jim Eaton, leasing manager for Box Office Warehouse Suites. "We have already added anchor tenants Happy Bank ATM Center, Salon and Spa Galleria and Posh Box Fashion."
Eaton continued by adding, "We're a community of doers and eagerly welcome that building design-related businesses, such as web designers, fashion designers, architects, craftspeople, woodworkers, Etsy artisans that have outgrown home spaces are all welcome."
In addition to the modern aesthetic of the shipping container offices, the district also offers offices with a more rustic feel. The original site was once a horse farm and Sturgeon could not bear to tear down the barn. He completely renovated it to make Paddock Place Office Suites, a fully renovated and updated barn now leasing as mini office space for solo entrepreneurs.
Another feature the park offers is larger commercial and industrial buildings with dock wells, grade and dock doors and showrooms. These industrial buildings can be up to 20,000 square feet and are suited for light manufacturing, distribution and service businesses. Long-term and temporary outside storage are available to tenants of all business sizes. Even smaller shops can find uses for month-to-month temporary outside storage.
"If you are a doer, we are interested in showing you space that will make collaborating more fun and productive," said Eaton. To schedule a visit, call or text Jim Easton at (817) 903-9438.
