Electrical room serves two floors

What do we do with an electrical room in a basement that serves only two floors of a five floor building?

The BOMA 1996 standard only allows you to proportionately share common area on a floor by floor basis (as floor common area) or on a building wide basis (as building common area). In this case, the electrical room would have to be building common area and therefore proportionately shared by all tenants in the building.
