SPACE AVAILABLE in Lake Worth with ocean view: Perfect for artist types or museum collection

[UPDATE: The "Space Available" is, well, still available.]

LAKE WORTH, FLApproximately 5,000 square feet, second floor location. Newly 'renovated' landmark building. Not historic but meant to look that way. Finish space to your liking. Flexible rent and terms, plans range from 20- to 50-year amortizations, possible balloon payment at end of lease. Lease no longer than 19 years and 364 days. Free water after rains; encouraged to create your own rain harvesting device for sustainability. Air conditioning optional and plenty of doors that open for ventilation; the ones that are still operational. Watch out for high seasonal winds! 

Parking slightly inconvenient, bread crumbs can be used to lead visitors back to their vehicles. Elevator building! Mystery pool nearby, fenced off from building, people can be seen using it, but how to get in? Over time you'll figure out the design and create maps. Check moon phase chart and sundial for hours of operation. All loading and unloading of vehicles outside of building in front of tourists eating; SO MAKE IT QUICK. Sometimes noisy parties next door. Ear plugs not included in lease. Bathrooms outside and to the right. Great space for creative person to make their own! Proposals accepted 24/7/365.

Other things to consider:
  • Check with your insurance carrier. Building operating under temporary certificate of occupancy.
  • Blenders of any kind ARE PROHIBITED (will blow electric circuits).
  • No one else wants this space. Little competition.
  • Prepare for extended negotiations; might go late into the evening for months on end.
  • All communications between lessor and lessee public information. 
  • Prepare for uninvited visits from many, no question is off-limits. Can be personal in nature.
  • Preference given to "Mother Teresa" types, vegetarians, those with a lengthy history protesting FPL, and of course the lovers of turtles (who isn't!).
  • Brokers and anyone elsenot protected.
  • Best way to respond to advertisement: smoke signals.
  • Owner of space NOT RESPONSIBLE for water damage; please have access to pallets, waders, and flotation devices.
Good luck!
