Corridor for Occupant Storage

David Van Haaren
September 14, 2012

Basement level of office building. Approx 50% of 'useable' area is a restaurant and the remainder is building services and occupant storage.
The occupant storage area consists of a corridor with multiple storage rooms.
What designation do we give the corridor? The Storage areas do not get a gross up factor of any sort. If the corrridor becomes floor common area, then the restaurant pays for it because they are the only tenant on the floor with a 'load' factor. So does it become Building Service Area?

Building Service Area is most appropriate in this scenario. Please refer to Illustration 11.1 in the BOMA 2010 standard publication.
