The new lease includes an option for our client to extend the lease for an additional five years, and provides that our client will not be required to pay rent on the 13th and 25th months of the lease. Additionally, the landlord will provide our client with a market rate improvement allowance per square foot and has agreed to provide a cap on their construction supervision fee. Financing for the landlord’s construction project will be provided by its lender, who will provide our client with a subordination, non-disturbance and attornment agreement for the new lease promptly after the parties enter into the agreement.
