The 5 Most Expensive Office Spaces in America

Home prices might still be swirling around the drain, but some real estate costs show no signs of budging. For companies renting in the most expensive locations in the US, they’re paying as much as ever.

As always, the old adage holds true: “There are three things that matter in property: location, location, location.” The following are the priciest places to rent in the US.

1. Sand Hill Road, Menlo Park, Calif.
