As the go-to real estate company in Northeast Ohio, CRESCO is here to guide you through your search for Akron office space. A recent influx of real estate investment from none other than Akron’s own LeBron James aims to continue the city’s positive trajectory and socially responsible development, highlighting the momentum and progress the city is experiencing.
In addition to new builds, existing office space is finding increasing relevance. The unemployment rate improved 6.2% in Akron in February 2021, showing a workforce rebound that indicates businesses are looking to bring workers back to the office. Combined with Akron’s significant appeal as a low-cost, yet vibrant city, businesses will find that purchasing Akron office space is a good investment.
JobsOhio has latched on to these benefits and has begun touting them to businesses near and far, highlighting the many benefits that Akron provides. No corporate income tax, low cost of living, and a significant talent pool of Midwestern hard workers make for a corporate dream scenario in the Heartland.
The pandemic has put high-tax, high-cost business locations under the microscope as companies look to maintain costs and retain their workforce. Akron is a bright light in that scenario, providing an opportunity for businesses to thrive in the midst of financial uncertainty.
A Dynamic Surrounding
Businesses that move to Akron aren’t just impressed by the financial aspect; there’s also appeal to potential and current employees. Akron is surrounded by parks, nature preserves, and outdoor adventures, including Ohio’s only national park, the Cuyahoga Valley National Park. Summit Metro Parks have an additional 14,100 acres of parkland, trails and sites.
The Akron Zoo, Hale Farm & Village, and Stan Hywet Hall are local attractions for all ages, providing respites for families and individuals alike. Food, art, shopping, and history round out the area’s appeal, with award-winning restaurants and programs to keep your employees entertained.
