I'm thinking of buying a house in town on main street and turning it into commercial space for lease. Office space upstairs for things like accountants and lawyers, and retail/office space on the ground floor for things like real estate agents or travel agents.
The house is already split up into apartments with separate entrances, and the ground floor units have big bay windows ideal for store fronts. Lots of parking 'round back.
But this would be new for me. What are some generalities concerning differences in commercial renos from residential renos? I figure obviously I can take the bathtubs out. I'll put each unit on separate electric and water meters. I'm thinking extra outlets and wired for data network...But, what else might be substantially different when you're renovating a space to be an office rather than a living room?
