Commercial Space – Defining It

The most common types are retail space

Commercial property, also known as commercial real estate, rental real estate or investment property, is the property intended to make a profit, either from rental income or capital appreciation. It may be used for any commercial purpose, such as offices, warehouses, stores, industrial or office facilities, hotels, shopping malls, restaurants, etc. Commercial property can take many forms and vary in type and location. The most common types are retail space, office space, industrial space, agricultural land, manufacturing property and speculative property.

There are numerous laws and regulations concerning the use of commercial space. All property owners and operators must comply with local, state and federal regulations concerning the size and height of structures, as well as the placement of signs, fences, etc., relating to the commercial market. All property owners and operators need to obtain a license or permit to operate a business in a particular location. This license or permit may be required for specific types of licenses, such as for truck drivers, brokers or inspectors, etc., or for the conduct of specific types of activities. Each area will have its own laws regulating the use of space for a commercial purpose. For example, regulations concerning the minimum clearance height of a building, commercial loading and unloading zones, open storage areas, flooring, lighting and parking will be different in a fire hazard zone than in an area of town zoned for residential use.

agreement defines the term of the contract

A Commercial Space Agreement (CSA) is an agreement between a landowner(s) and a person or entity with whom they have an interest in purchasing or leasing commercial space. Such an agreement defines the term of the contract, establishes the liability of the parties, and provides definitions of the rights of each party. The CSA also determines whether there is an inherent governmental obligation to protect the public from harm or to achieve public objectives through regulation. An owner generally enters into a Commercial Space Agreement when a new tenant begins operating in a given location.

In order to gain access to government contracts for the use of commercial space, an owner must generally invest significant sums of money in terms of equipment and/or facilities. This investment by the owner will typically provide a level of compensation to compensate them for the anticipated losses that occur throughout the life of the lease or contract. In the United States, this type of investment is often referred to as an inducement-based compensation system. The inducement-based system refers to a system whereby a government agency incentives for businesses to participate in a public work, by offering a portion of the costs or benefits of doing business in a given location.

public and private sectors

The use of the term “commercial space” in DDA agreements is not limited to the United States. In Canada, there is a common law definition of commercial space that has been found to include both the public and private sectors. This meaning would also likely apply in the United States, if it were recognized by Canadian courts. For the purposes of this discussion, the United States government’s position on the meaning of “commercial real estate” is fundamentally dependent upon the meaning of “commerce” as used in the context of private contract law.

In defining commercial property in the context of commercial contract law, the United States Supreme Court has provided an example of a situation in which the exercise of economic activity is considered a form of speech or expression. The Court, in the majority opinion, held that the federal government could not limit freedom of contract when it was involved in encouraging, limiting, or regulating the distribution of advertising on stationery. Because the advertising on stationery was not found to be of a direct monetary value, the majority opinion believed that the restrictions on freedom of contract were not intended to restrict advertising in a fashion that would have a direct economic benefit to the government. The Court further stated that it was not necessary for a restraint to be content-based, as it would only need to have a direct monetary benefit. This case, however, was decided on a narrow definition of commercial space and has provided the foundation for much of modern legal scholarship surrounding the subject of commercial space.
