FedEx Office and Print Services just opened at Woodlawn Crossing Shopping Center. The E.C. Griffith Company is ecstatic to have them on board as our anchor tenant. The look on Honey Baked Ham’s and Cookies by Design’s associates faces was that of pure “Glee.” Several of the E.C.Griffith Company staff broke into an impromptu rendition “Ain’t no stopping us now.” Can’t you just hear it! This is exciting news for the Center being on the pedestrian overlay and only one block from Charlotte’s Blue Lynx Light Rail.

FedEx is a 7am – 11pm draw and one of the most respected and the most recognizable brands on the Globe. With the economy on the cusp of coming back strong, this corridor should continue to be an up and coming Transit Oriented Development being that the mass transit, the belt road and South Boulevard all converge on Woodlawn Crossing as the bull’s-eye. For those Retail Brokers carting around clients in search of high traffic, future growth and close proximity to SouthEnd, Park Road, Myers Park and Charlotte’s heaviest concentration of office along the I-77 & Billy Graham Parkway corridors… bring them by to test drive our location.

You know what they say at Woodlawn Crossing Shopping Center… in order to Get There…
They have to GO by HERE!
Its true… think about it… if you have to go to the Airport, to the Mountains… to work, by light rail or car. Check out our tenant’s roster that the FedEx office joins. We have several floorplans to choose from. There is the perfect Endcap closest to KFC & BB&T. There is also the space that is “Right Next Door” to the FedEx office. Lastly, we can look at the Interior Space near Honey Baked Ham.

We are pumped that you could be the first to know that this Fortune 100… FedEx Office & Print Services is open for business. While you are there… enjoy a treat from Cookies by Design ON US!!!

Should I Lease or Buy Office Space?

As a new owner of your own business, there’s something else that you should consider owning: office space. Before you make the final decision, however, you must determine if it is best for your needs to own or lease this space. The decision can be complicated, but, as a small business, there are some specific factors to take into consideration.

What is your financial situation?—Leasing is typically less expensive upfront than buying, as the leaser pays regular monthly payments, rather than the initial down payment incurred by a buyer. Additionally, an individual purchasing their own office space must remember that there are other payments, including potential fees for a loan and building inspections.

Where do you see your company’s growth in one year? 5 years? 10 years?—If you feel that your company is already at its desired or necessary size and that it won’t be expanding within the next decade or so, it may be safe to buy the appropriate-sized office space right now. If, however, you anticipate that the company will grow, leasing might be the better option. You’d hate to buy office space, only to have to upsize in a few years.

What is the land appreciation like in your area?—You never know where the future will take you, your business, or your location. For this reason, it’s always smart to think ahead. Be sure, if you’re planning on buying property, to find a location that will give you a reasonable profit, in the event you will be selling it in the future.
