Vertical circulation used by one tenant - non rentable?

In a multi tenant office building where an elevator/stair is used only for one tenant, is the vertical circulation only used by one tenant still not rentable?

Hi keith,

That depends. If the stair was built specifically for the tenant and could be removed and used as floor space in the future then it can be considered part of the Occupant Area (and therefore rentable). However, if the stair is used for egress and is a building requirement, it should be allocated as major Vertical Penetration.
