Offices of class "B" ("B +")

Offices of class "B" and "B +" have almost the same characteristics as the "A" class, but have obvious shortcomings in terms of major tenants: no new business center (ie, the same class "A" after 5 -7 years of use), the location is not in the center of the city, not a roomy parking lot, relatively small space.

Thus, in these business centers of class "C" may be a new air conditioning system, but utilities are obsolete.

Class "C" - the most common among the business center of Kiev. (Many real estate experts and tenants themselves prefer to call these buildings more "lowly": office center, office building.) This class includes all business centers, which are not subject to the characteristics of any class "A" nor "B". Some realtors offer Kiev introduce the class «D». In their view, a class "C" should provide a set of facilities, the minimum required for a modern business center: air conditioning rooms (split system), clock security and a "normal repair" facilities. Business centers, who can not afford the minimum of services offered to refer to the class of «D». But introduce it into practice is not yet possible business center of class "C" is so diverse in location, condition, size, that could be sufficient to introduce a class "E», «F» and so on. No established system of classification, or professional (and objective) classifiers in Kiev yet. So while the class "C" is used to refer to all complexes, lease, rent the cheapest offices with minimal amenities.

Almost all the business centers of class "C" - a building of the Soviet period, built for different purposes: the former day care, schools, research institutes, government institutions. They have different "age" in a different state, located in different parts of the city. Building brick or panel, plan for the corridor system with private areas small area.

Available communication in such business centers are usually limited, which may make it difficult to work with mobile phones or the Internet.
