Background info - not for points
Most tenants realize that a portion of the building common areas (first floor lobby and elevator lobbies on each floor are examples) and mechanical rooms and stairwells may be included in the net rentable area formula for the leased premises. Again, exclusion of all or some part of these spaces will reduce the numerator used to determine the tenant’s share of operating expenses.
from Service Areas, On-Floor Common Areas or Building Common Areas, but including any area within columns or projections necessary to the Building.
(i) “Building Common Areas” means the areas within (and measured from the mid-point of the walls enclosing) the Building’s ground floor lobby, concourse, pedestrian tunnels, elevator machine rooms, mechanical and electrical rooms serving more than one floor of the Building, telephone and equipment rooms, janitor closets, central mail room, loading dock and other similar facilities and areas of the Building that are not leased or held for lease and are necessary or desirable for the proper utilization of the Building, but excluding On-Floor Common Areas;
(iii) “Service Areas” means the areas within (and measured from the mid-point of the walls enclosing) the Building’s stairways, fire towers, elevator shafts, flues, vents, stacks, pipe shafts and vertical ducts, other than those, if any, that are for the specific use of Tenant or any other tenant of the Building (such as special stairs or elevators).
(e) In no event will any space that is a part of Building Common Areas, On-Floor Common Areas or Service Areas be counted or allocated more than once for purpose of determining Net Rentable Area.
