Move from Serviced to Leased Office
for a Medical Devices Maker
Medical device maker was moved from their serviced office into a 743.1 m2 (~8000 ft2) office space in a prestigious location near Tokyo station. The contract is a non-standard one, in which the current tenant vacates without returning the site to its original state, leaving it partially constructed or furnished. This style is eco-friendly, allows for a quicker move timeframe, and saves money for all involved.
