Video Series: Crye-Leike Commercial

Welcome back to  Crye-Leike Insights! Each week, we share tips, stories, and wisdom from our Crye-Leike family.  This week on Crye-Leike Insights we are joined by Eric Fuhrman, Managing Broker of Crye-Leike Commercial. In this episode, Eric explains how Crye-Leike Commercial quickly determines about how much real estate space you will need for your business.



The first thing that you need to think about when looking for commercial property is deciding how much space you will need.


  • Office and Medical Space

    • 3 people per 1000 sq/ft for general office space.
    • Medical is more concentrated. Closer to 6 people per 1000 sq/ft.


  • Industrial Space

    • Depends mostly on how much storage is needed.
    • Consider storing vertically to sale money on real estate space.


  • Retail and Restaurant Space

    • Break rooms, offices, storage spaces, etc. all cost money when it comes to retail real estate.
    • Restaurants usually fit about 1 person per 15 sq/ft.
