Gray Shell and Vanilla Shell Architecture

Rather you are looking at leasing a gray shell or a vanilla shell, we can help you with your tenant improvement project.

Gray Shell- Cold Shell

While a gray shell is often referred to as a cold shell, it merely means it needs more work to convert it to usable space than a vanilla shell would. It is considered unfinished space and often needs plumbing, electrical and finishing of floors and bare stud walls. Sewer connections are often available. It may or may not have HVAC and ductwork.

Vanilla Shell- Warm Shell

Vanilla shells on the other hand are much closer to finished space and often available much quicker for move in. They are often referred to white-box (blank walls) and warms shell because they have the basic architectural finishes already ready. Minimal customization is usually done for vanilla shell architecture.
