What is Second Generation Space?

A second-generation space, also known as a second-gen space, is a term used to describe a commercial property that has previously been occupied and is being leased to a new tenant. Second-generation spaces may have been vacated by a previous tenant who has moved out or who has gone out of business, or they may be part of a larger property that has been divided into smaller units for leasing.

Second-generation spaces may be in a variety of states of condition, ranging from fully finished and ready for occupancy to raw or vanilla shell spaces that require significant renovations or build-out. They may also have a variety of amenities and features that were left behind by the previous tenant, such as fixtures, furniture, or equipment.

Leasing a second-generation space can be a good option for tenants who are looking for a more affordable or flexible space, or who want to customize a property to meet their specific needs and requirements. It can also be a good option for landlords who want to fill a vacancy quickly or who want to offer a variety of space options to potential tenants. The terms of a lease for a second-generation space should be carefully negotiated and documented to ensure that the responsibilities of the landlord and tenant are clearly defined.
