The Space is being offered for lease for an initial term of 5 to 10 years starting as early as November 1, 2019. Respondents can request in their proposal renewal options for a period not to exceed, in the aggregate, an additional 10 years. In total, the initial term and all renewal term(s) may not exceed 15 years. The lease will be triple net, requiring the selected Respondent to be responsible for all costs associated with Unit A. These costs include, but are not limited to, insurance, utilities, ongoing maintenance, and security. NYCEDC prefers an annual lease payment escalation of at least 3 percent (compounded annually) over the Initial Term and the Renewal Term.
