The term "white box" in most cases, refers to a commercial space with the basic four walls a finshed or unfinished ceiling and limeted lighting and floor covering. The space does not include any special build out a tenant may need. Any buildout is negotiable as to who is going to pay for it and as to how it is done.

Dan is pretty much right on, but don't be afraid to ask. It is one of those terms that is a bit vague.

And just so you know, since you asked, a grey box is more simple than a white box, sometimes without doors or windows, just walls and a roof
