DSW Bronx

I am working on a area certification for a new Single tenant building in the Bronx. The buildings Gross Exterior area is 21,167 sf. i certified the Gross Leasable Area as being 21,167 SF, because there are no other tenants and no Landlord functions within the building. All of the spaces are intended for the exclusive use of the tenant.

The tenant believes several areas should be subtracted from the Gross Exterior area. Specifically Mechanical Spaces, Stair Cases and electrical room.

I have reviewed the Retail and Gross area guides and I have not seen any specific reference to single tenant buildings. Can you point me towards a standard that I can share with my client and the tenant?

Hi Gary,

Both the Retail Standard and Gross Area standard refers to single tenant buildings. Either standard may be used in this case, however I would recommend using the Gross Areas standard so that you maximize the square footage of your area certification.
