Common Areas Tenant shall have the non-exclusive right to use in common with other tenants in the Project, and subject to the Rules and Regulations referred to in Article 5 of this Lease, those portions of the Project which are provided, from time to time, for use in common by Landlord, Tenant and any other tenants of the Project (such areas, together with such other portions of the Project designated by Landlord, in its discretion, including certain areas designated for the exclusive use of certain tenants, or to be shared by Landlord and certain tenants, are collectively referred to herein as the “Common Areas”). The Common Areas shall consist of the “Project Common Areas” and the “Building Common Areas.” The term “Project Common Areas,” as used in this Lease, shall mean the portion of the Project designated as such by Landlord or areas within the Project that the occupants of the Building are permitted to utilize pursuant to a recorded declaration and which areas shall be maintained in accordance with the declaration. The term “Building Common Areas,” as used in this Lease, shall mean the portions of the Common Areas located within the Building reasonably designated as such by Landlord. The manner in which the Common Areas are maintained and operated shall be at the reasonable discretion of Landlord and the use thereof shall be subject to the Rules and Regulations as Landlord may make from time to time. Landlord reserves the right to close temporarily, make alterations or additions to, or change the location of elements of the Project and the Common Areas, provided that, in connection therewith, Landlord shall perform such closures, alterations, additions or changes in a commercially reasonable manner and, in connection therewith, shall use commercially reasonable efforts to minimize any material interference with Tenant’s use of and access to the Premises.
Parking Tenant and Tenant’s employees, invitees and customers shall have the right to use the parking areas of the Building at a ratio of three (3) spaces per 1,000 square feet of the Premises and subject to such regulations and charges as Landlord shall reasonably adopt from time to time, and subject to the right of Landlord to restrict the use by Tenant and Tenant’s Representatives when in the reasonable judgment of Landlord such use is excessive for the parking area in relationship to the reasonable use required by other Tenants. If Landlord becomes obligated under applicable laws or regulations or any other directive of any governmental or quasi-governmental authority to pay or assess fees or charges for parking in the Building’s parking area, Tenant shall pay such amounts to Landlord as additional Rent.
