Office Space Penn Station Rental Pricing

Asking rents are negotiable. Nonetheless, most Landlords price their vacant office space close to its actual market value. Often times a Landlord will incentivize a Tenant to rent an office in their building by providing a free rent period at the beginning of the lease term. This is particularly helpful to offset the costs incurred in relocation or the opening of an entirely new office. In addition to the base (first year’s) rent, Tenants should expect to pay for the electricity consumed (usually a fixed monthly cost) and annual escalations. These include: (1) increases in the building’s annual operating expense which is usually expressed as a percentage increase in the rent; and (2) a proportional share of the annual increase of the building’s real estate tax which is “passed through” as an annual, biannual or monthly charge.
