2.Lower Level Premises.  Commencing on August 1, 2019 (the “Lower Level Premises Commencement Date”), Tenant shall have the right during the Term to use the Lower Level Premises for the storage of Tenant’s property and for no other use or purpose.  Tenant may not store any Hazardous Materials in the Lower Level Premises.  Tenant acknowledges and agrees that, as of the Lower Level Premises Commencement Date, all of Tenant’s obligations under the Lease shall apply with respect to the Lower Level Premises as though the Lower Level Premises were part of the Premises, except that Tenant shall not be required to pay Base Rent or Operating Expenses with respect to the Lower Level Premises.  Tenant hereby accepts the Lower Level Premises on an “as is” basis and in their condition as of the Lower Level Premises Commencement Date, and Landlord is hereby expressly relieved and released from any duty or obligation to make any improvements or alterations to the Lower Level Premises or to otherwise maintain the Lower Level Premises.  The Lower Level Premises shall be surrendered to Landlord at the end of the Term in broom swept clean condition.
