A unique and clever development idea is in the works for vacant office space all throughout Downtown Dallas.
As first reported on Dallas News, Dallas-based Bluelofts is looking to covert vacant office space in buildings all over town into fully-functional live-work spaces with the help of a German manufacturer that’s building modular “boxes” that include a kitchen, bathroom, and all the plumbing.
According to developers at Bluelofts, the pre-built box system can plug into any building so-to-speak without having to drill through floors. In addition, these plug-and-play boxes can also be broken down into sections, allowing the company to bring them up piece-by-piece inside an elevator.
With so many office buildings having vacant floors, the idea, at least for now, is quite intriguing.
Once finished, these live-work suites can be rented by the week, month, or perhaps for an even longer period of time, allowing for a zero commute place to call home.
Each apartment in Dallas will range between 600 and 1,000 square feet, although Bluelofts is open to the idea of smaller, 300 or 400 square foot units in other markets. Units will also come fully furnished, and as for monthly pricing, that’s still being determined as more development details are being worked through behind the scenes.
