Commercial Property Insurance will range in cost as it is dependant on certain factors which include; postcode, trade in the property, previous claims, rebuild cost, if you are in a flood/subsidence area and many more.

If you want to insure the property which is in a high theft/malicious damage area the underwriters will take this into consideration and that area may have more expensive rates, perils could be excluded or higher excesses added.  The same would apply if the property is located beside a river, the underwriters would be concerned incase it bursts its banks, overflows and causes damage to the property they are insuring.
