Office Rooms

Hi Manager Zhang, (I) heard (that) you plan to find  one “jian” (of) new office, I for you (have) prepared a few “jian” (of offices), you look (at them) really quick (and see) how (they are). These a few “jian” (of) offices inside all exist bathrooms. The first “jian” (of) office is on Jichang(/Airport) Road, the second “jian” (of office) is on Daxue(/University) Road, additionally (there) exists one “jian” (of office) is on the side (of) Stadium. This “jian” (of office) of Jichang Road with that “jian” (of office) of Daxue Road is the same big, but (the) price is not the same. (The one) of Jichang Road every month (is) 8000 yuan, (how) about (the one) of Daxue Road(?) every month (is) 9500 yuan. This “jian” (of office of the) Stadium (is) the biggest, but because (it is) the furthest, (the) price with (the one) of Jichang Road (is) the same, every month 8000, very cheap. Though (being) the furthest, but the side (of) it exists (a) subway station, also very convenient, nowadays coworkers go to work all are used to take subways, (those who) drive (are) very few. You think which “ge” (of office) is more good? How are the prices?
