Basic Utilities is estimated to add $1.50 per square foot per year to each studio for the initial year. This will be added to monthly rental costs. Basic Utilities shall be defined as building-wide electric, gas, water/sewer and basic internet. At the end of each year, if this amount is more (or less) than actual costs, tenants will be charged (or credited) the difference in the following year. Mainframe Studios will reset the Basic Utilities estimate at the beginning of each year. If Tenant has extraordinary utility demand for use of any appliance that increases total power consumption beyond that which is usual and customary (e.g. kilns, 220 voltage outlets), Tenant shall either submeter such utility at its own expense or shall be assessed an additional charge. Tenants will be able to upgrade internet speeds at their cost.
Custom Build-out Needs
Tenants requiring specialty build-out (e.g. interior walls, additional ventilation, additional outlets, additional lights, higher voltage, etc.) will be responsible for the installation costs of these added features. Contractor must be approved by Mainframe Studios and can provide estimates upon request.
A building-wide liability policy will be established by Mainframe Studios and each Tenant will be charged an annual fee to ensure tenant liability insurance is in place. Tenant may purchase personal property insurance at its own expense. Tenant shall indemnify and hold Mainframe Studios harmless from any liability.
Annual rents shall increase by the greater of Consumer Price Index or 3% each year on January 1, beginning January 1, 2019.
Rent and Deposit Payment
Standard leases will be 1-year. First month’s rent plus one month’s deposit is required when leases are signed. Rent is due on the first of each month by electronic transfer funds. Late fees will be added to the rental cost after the 5th of each month.
At the end of this application you will be asked to pay a $100 fee to secure your commitment. You will be credited this fee when leasing begins. Should you not be awarded a studio in Phase 1 and no longer wish to remain on our waiting list, we are happy to issue a refund, less processing fees. If you are awarded a studio and choose not to take it, the application fee will be forfeited.
