Tenant shall also repair all damage to the building and the demised premises caused by the moving of Tenants fixtures, furniture or equipment. All the aforesaid repairs shall be of quality or class equal to the original work or construction. If Tenant fails, after ten (10) days notice, to proceed with due diligence to make repairs required to be made by Tenant, the same may be made by Owner at the expense of Tenant, and the expenses thereof incurred by Owner shall be collectible, as additional rent, after rendition of a bill or statement therefore.

It is specifically agreed that Tenant shall not be entitled to any setoff or reduction of rent by reason of any failure of Owner to comply with the covenants of this or any other article of this lease. Tenant agrees that Tenants sole remedy at law in such instance will be by way of an action for damages for breach of contract.

Requirements of Law, Fire Insurance, Floor Loads: 6. Prior to the commencement of the lease term, if Tenant is then in possession, and at all times thereafter, Tenant shall at Tenants sole cost and expense, promptly comply with all present and future laws, orders and regulations of all state, federal, municipal and local governments, departments, commissions and boards and any direction of any public officer pursuant to law, and all orders, rules and regulations of the New York Board of Fire Underwriters, Insurance Services Office, or any similar body which shall impose any violation, order or duty upon Owner or Tenant with respect to the demised premises, whether or not arising out of Tenants use or manner of use thereof, or, with respect to the building, if arising out of Tenants use or manner of use of the demised premises of the building (including the use permitted under the lease). Except as provided in Article 30 hereof, nothing herein shall require Tenant to make structural repairs or alterations unless Tenant has, by its manner of use of the demised premises or method of operation therein, violated any such laws, ordinances, orders, rules, regulations or requirements with respect thereto. Tenant shall not do or permit any act or thing to be done in or to the demised premises which is contrary to law, or which will invalidate or be in conflict with public liability, fire or other policies of insurance at any time carried by or for the benefit of Owner, or which shall or might subject Owner to any liability or responsibility to any person, or for property damage. Tenant shall not keep anything in the demised premises except as now or hereafter permitted by the Fire Department, Board of Fire Underwriters, Fire
Insurance Rating Organization and other authority having jurisdiction, and then only in such manner and such quantity so as not to increase the rate for fire insurance applicable to the building, nor use the demised premises in a manner which will increase the insurance rate for the building or any property located therein over that in effect prior to the commencement of Tenants occupancy. If by reason of failure to comply with the foregoing the fire insurance rate shall, at the beginning of this lease or at any time thereafter, be higher than it otherwise would be, then Tenant shall reimburse Owner, as additional rent hereunder, for that portion of all fire insurance premiums thereafter paid by Owner which shall have been charged because of such failure by Tenant. In any action or proceeding wherein Owner and Tenant are parties, a schedule or make-up or rate for the building or demised premises issued by a body making fire insurance rates applicable to said premises shall be conclusive evidence of the facts therein stated and of the several items and charges in the fire insurance rates then applicable to said premises. Tenant shall not place a load upon any floor of the demised premises exceeding the floor load per square foot area which it was designed to carry and which is allowed by law. Owner reserves the right to prescribe the weight and position of all safes, business machines and mechanical equipment. Such installations shall be placed and maintained by Tenant, at Tenants expense, in settings sufficient, in Owners judgment, to absorb and prevent vibration, noise and annoyance.

Tenants obligation to observe or perform this covenant shall survive the expiration or other termination of this lease. If the last day of the term of this lease, or any renewal thereof, falls on Sunday, this lease shall expire at noon on the preceding Saturday, unless it be a legal holiday, in which case it shall expire at noon on the preceding business day.
Quiet Enjoyment: 23. Owner covenants and agrees with Tenant that upon Tenant paying the rent and additional rent and observing and performing all the terms, covenants and conditions, on Tenants part to be observed and performed, Tenant may peaceably and quietly enjoy the premises hereby demised, subject, nevertheless, in the terms and conditions of this lease including, but not limited to, Article 34 hereof, and to the ground leases, underlying leases and mortgages hereinbefore mentioned.
Failure to Give Possession: 24. If Owner is unable to give possession of the demised premises on the date of the commencement of the term hereof because of the holding-over or retention of possession of any tenant, undertenant or occupants, or if the demised premises are located in a building being constructed, because such building has not been sufficiently completed to make the premises ready for occupancy or because of the fact that a certificate of occupancy has not been procured, or if Owner has not completed any work required to be performed by Owner, or for any other reason, Owner shall not be subject to any liability for failure to give possession on said date and the validity of the lease shall not be impaired under such circumstances, nor shall the same be construed in any way to extend the term of this lease, but the rent payable hereunder shall be closed (provided Tenant is not responsible for Owners inability to obtain possession or complete any work required) until after Owner shall have given Tenant notice that Owner is able to deliver possession in the condition required by this lease. If permission is given to Tenant to enter into possession of the demised premises, or to occupy premises other than the demised premises, prior to the date specified as the commencement of the term of this lease, Tenant covenants and agrees that such possession and/or occupancy shall be deemed to be under all the terms, covenants, conditions and provisions of this lease, except the obligation to pay the fixed annual rent set forth in page one of this lease. The provisions of this article are intended to constitute an express provision to the contrary within the meaning of Section 223-a of the New York Real Property Law.
No Waiver: 25. The failure of Owner to seek redress for violation of, or to insist upon the strict performance of, any covenant or condition of this lease, or of any of the Rules or Regulations, set forth or hereafter adopted by Owner, shall not prevent a subsequent act, which would have originally constituted a violation, from having all the force and effect of an original violation. The receipt by Owner of rent with knowledge of the breach of any covenant of this lease shall not be deemed a waiver of such breach, and no provision of this lease shall be deemed to have been waived by Owner unless such waiver be in writing signed by Owner. No payment by Tenant, or receipt by Owner, of a lesser amount than the monthly rent herein stipulated shall be deemed to be other than on account of the earliest stipulated rent, nor shall any endorsement or statement of any check or any letter accompanying any check or payment as rent be deemed an accord and satisfaction, and Owner may accept such check or payment without prejudice to Owners right to recover the balance of such rent or pursue any other remedy in this lease provided. All checks tendered to Owner as and for the rent of the demised premises shall be deemed payments for the account of Tenant. Acceptance by Owner of rent from anyone other than Tenant shall not be deemed to operate as an attornment to Owner by the payor of such rent, or as a consent by Owner to an assignment or subletting by Tenant of the demised premises to such payor, or as a modification of the provisions of this lease. No act or thing done by Owner or Owners agents during the term hereby demised shall be deemed an acceptance of a surrender of said premises, and no agreement to accept such surrender shall be valid unless in writing signed by Owner. No employee of Owner or Owners agent shall have any power to accept the keys of said premises prior to the termination of the lease, and the delivery of keys to any such agent or employee shall not operate as termination of the lease or a surrender of the demised premises.
Waiver of Trial by Jury: 26. It is mutually agreed by and between Owner and Tenant that the respective parties hereto shall, and they hereby do, waive trial by jury in any action, proceeding or counterclaim brought by either of the parties hereto against the other (except for personal injury or property damage) on any matters whatsoever arising out of or in any way connected with this lease, the relationship of Owner and Tenant, Tenants use of or occupancy of demised premises, and any emergency statutory or any other statutory remedy. It is further mutually agreed that in the event Owner commences any proceeding or action for possession, including a summary proceeding for possession of the demised premises, Tenant will not interpose any counterclaim, of whatever nature or description, in any such proceeding including a counterclaim under Article 4, except for statutory mandatory counterclaims.
Inability to Perform: 27. This lease and the obligation of Tenant to pay rent hereunder and perform all of the other covenants and agreements hereunder on part of Tenant to be performed shall in no way be affected, impaired or excused because Owner is unable to fulfill any of its obligations under this lease, or to supply, or is delayed in supplying, any service expressly or impliedly to be supplied, or is unable to make, or is delayed in making any repairs, additions, alterations or decorations, or is unable to supply, or is delayed in supplying any equipment, fixtures or other materials, if Owner is prevented or delayed from doing so by reason of strike or labor troubles, or any cause whatsoever beyond Owners sole control including, but not limited to, government preemption or restrictions, or by reason of any rule, order or regulation of any department or subdivision thereof any government agency, or by reason of the conditions which have been or are affected, either directly or indirectly, by war or other emergency.

The foregoing indemnity shall include injury to or death of any employee of any contractor or subcontractor and shall not be limited in any way by the amount or type of damages, compensation or benefits payable under any applicable Workers Compensation, Disability Benefits or other similar employment benefits acts. The commercial general liability coverage maintained by TENANT pursuant to this Lease shall specifically insure the contractual obligations of TENANT as set forth in this Article and/or as otherwise provided in this Lease. TENANT further covenants and agrees that in the event any action, suit or proceeding shall be brought against Indemnitees, on the demised premises as a result of any loss, damage, injury or death as aforesaid, said TENANT will defend such action, suit or proceeding and will pay any, fines, penalties, and judgments against the Indemnitees, or against the demised premises, including reasonable attorneys fees, costs, fines and expenses of the Indemnitees TENANT shall use reasonable efforts to cause its contractors and/or subcontractors to agree in writing to defend, indemnify and hold Indemnitees harmless from and against any and all liability (statutory or otherwise), demands, claims, actions, suits, proceedings, damages, judgments, fees, costs, fines, penalties, interest and expenses (including, but not limited to, reasonable attorneys fees and disbursements incurred in the defense of any and all claims, actions, suits or proceedings), resulting from injury and/or death of any person or damage to or loss of any property arising out of any negligent or wrongful act, error or omission or breach of contract, in connection with the operations of the contractor or subcontractor in the demised premises or anywhere else in or about the Building.

50. Use: Subject to and in accordance with the rules, regulations, laws, ordinances, statutory limitations and requirements of all governmental authorities and the fire insurance rating organization and board of fire underwriters and any similar bodies having jurisdiction thereof, and the other terms and conditions of this Lease, TENANT covenants and agrees that it shall use the demised premises solely for design and general offices.
Limitation of Liability:
(A) If OWNER or any successor in interest to OWNER is an individual (which term as used herein includes aggregates of individuals, such as joint ventures, general or limited partnerships or associations), such individual shall be under no personal liability with respect to any of the provisions of this Lease, Furthermore, irrespective of whether OWNER or any such successor be an individual, a corporation, a limited liability company, or any other business entity, in the event OWNER or any such successor shall be in breach or default with respect to its obligations under this Lease, TENANT shall look solely to the estate of such owner or successor in the land and building of which the demised premises forms a part for the satisfaction of TENANTs remedies for the collection of a judgment (or other judicial process), and no other property or assets of such OWNER or successor, or any officer, director, shareholder, partner, member, principal or agent thereof shall be subject to suit, or to levy, execution or other enforcement procedure for the satisfaction of TENANTs remedies under, with respect to, or arising out of this Lease, the relationship of OWNER and TENANT hereunder, or TENANTs use and occupancy of the demised premises. Anything to the contrary notwithstanding, nothing herein shall be construed to allow the TENANT to withhold rent for any reason whatsoever.
(B) In no event shall TENANT be entitled to make, nor shall TENANT make, any claim, and TENANT hereby waives any claim against OWNER and against any agent of OWNER, for money damage, fees or other monetary relief (nor shall TENANT claim any money damages, fees or other monetary relief by way of set-off, counterclaim or defense) based upon any claim or assertion by TENANT that OWNER has unreasonably withheld or delayed its consent or approval to any request of TENANT in such instances, if any, where OWNER is expressly required hereunder, or under law, not to unreasonably withhold or delay such consent TENANTs sole remedy shall be an action or proceeding to enforce any such provision, or for specific performance, injunction or declaratory judgment, and TENANT shall not accept any award of damages, fees or other relief.
Curing TENANTS Defaults, Additional Rent:
(A) Anything to the contrary contained in this Lease notwithstanding, if TENANT shall default in the performance of any of TENANTS obligations under this Lease, OWNER, without thereby waiving such default, may (but shall not be obligated to) perform the same for the account and at the cost and expense of TENANT, without notice in a case of emergency, and in any other case, only if such default continues after the expiration of the later of (i) five (5) business days from the date OWNER gives TENANT notice of intention to do so, or (ii) the applicable grace period provided in paragraph 17 or elsewhere in this Lease for cure of such default, whichever occurs later.
(B) Bills for any fee, costs and expenses incurred by OWNER in connection with any such performance by it for the account of TENANT, and bills for all fees, costs, expenses and disbursements of every kind and nature whatsoever, including reasonable attorneys fees, involved in collecting or endeavoring to collect the fixed rent or additional rent or any part thereof or enforcing or endeavoring to enforce any rights against TENANT, under or in connection with this Lease, or pursuant to law, including any such fees, costs, expenses and disbursements, including, but not limited to, reasonable attorneys fees and court costs involved in instituting and prosecuting summary proceedings, as well as bills for any property, material, labor or services provided, furnished, or rendered, by OWNER or at its instance to TENANT, may be sent by OWNER to TENANT monthly, or immediately, at OWNERS option, and shall be due and payable by TENANT in accordance with the terms of such bills but no later than ten (10) business days after giving notice of such bills.
Late Charge; Additional Rent:
(A) If any check given to OWNER for payment of fixed rent, additional rent or other charges under this Lease (collectively, Rental) shall be returned by TENANTs bank due to insufficient funds, TENANT shall be deemed to have failed to timely pay such Rental to OWNER. TENANT acknowledges further that the actual costs to OWNER in each particular case will vary according to the circumstances of the case and that the determination of the precise costs would, in itself, result in considerable expense. Accordingly, TENANT agrees that if any installment of Rental due under this Lease is not paid within ten (10) days of the date the same is due, or is so dishonored, TENANT shall pay to OWNER a late charge equal to four (0.04) cents for each dollar ($1.00) overdue for each month, or part thereof, until payment of such amount and late charge, and TENANTs failure to pay any late charge due under this Article shall constitute a default in TENANTs obligation to pay Rental; provided that no such late charge shall be payable for the first late Rental in any twelve (12) month period, provide that TENANT pays the overdue amount within three (3) business days after notice to TENANT.
(B) All Rental payable by TENANT under this Lease shall constitute additional rent and shall be payable without set-off or deduction, whether or not so specified elsewhere in this Lease. All Rental in arrears for more than thirty (30) days will bear interest at the rate equal to the rate published by J.P. Morgan Bank as its prime rate, plus five percent (5%) but in no event more than maximum annual rate of interest chargeable thereto under applicable law, from their respective original due dates until received by OWNER, but the foregoing shall in no way limit any claim for damages or any other rights and remedies available to OWNER for any breach or default by TENANT. TENANTS obligations under this Lease will survive the expiration or sooner termination of the Term. TENANT agrees that OWNER shall have all of the rights and remedies for the non-payment thereof as the OWNER would have for the non-payment of the fixed or minimum rent required to be paid by the TENANT.
(A) After any termination of this Lease pursuant to any of the provisions hereof, including, without limitation, pursuant to summary proceedings or otherwise, (a) all sums payable by TENANT hereunder up to the time of such termination shall become due thereupon and be paid, and (b) OWNER may elect to receive damages calculated in accordance with Article 16(b). In either event, OWNER shall not be liable in any way whatsoever for its failure or refusal to relet the demised premises or any part thereof, or if the demised premises are so relet, or its failure to collect the rent under such reletting, and no refusal or failure to relet to collect rent shall affect TENANTs liability for damages or otherwise hereunder. Nothing herein contained shall limit or prejudice the right of OWNER to prove and obtain as liquidated damages by reason of such termination an amount equal to the maximum allowed by any statute or rule of law in effect at the time when, and governing the proceedings in which such damages are to be proved, whether or not such amount be greater, equal to, or less than the amounts referred to herein. TENANT agrees that the rights and remedies afforded to OWNER under this Lease, including, without limitation, the right to collect damages as calculated under Article 16(b) as stated above, constitute a fair and reasonable amount of damages in the circumstances.
(B) TENANT acknowledges that: (i) its agreement to fully and timely pay all rent and additional rent is a material inducement for OWNER to enter into this Lease; (ii) the aggregate amount of all rent and additional rent are due and payable in full at the commencement of the term, but OWNER, solely for TENANTS convenience, has permitted said amount to be payable in equal monthly installments during the term; (iii) upon default in the full and timely payment of any rent and additional installments, the entire unpaid balance of the aggregate amount of all rent and additional rent for the then remainder of the term (as originally reserved) will immediately become due and payable without notice or demand; and TENANT agrees that the provisions of this Article: (a) will not constitute or be deemed to be liquidated damages or a penalty; (b) will apply notwithstanding any contrary provision of this Lease; and (c) will be in addition to, and not limit, any other rights and remedies available to OWNER pursuant to this Lease and otherwise (including, without limitation, those regarding additional rent reserved under this Lease) upon a default in the fully and timely payment of rent installment. The parties agree that this Article fairly reflects their intent with respect to a default of the nature specified in clause (iii) hereof.
(C) The remedies granted to OWNER in the event of TENANTs default or non-compliance are deemed to be cumulative and in addition to all other remedies attainable at law or in equity, and all of the same may be exercised at one time or different times, concurrently or in any order in the sole discretion of OWNER, and the exercise of any one remedy will not operate as a waiver or preclude the exercise of any other remedy.
(D) Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Lease, TENANT shall have, after receiving a notice from OWNER regarding a non-monetary default, thirty (30) days to cure such non-monetary default (rather than the fifteen (15) days specified in Article 17(1)); provided that if such cure cannot be completed within such thirty (30) day period, TENANT shall have such additional time as needed (but not more than an additional one hundred twenty (120) days) to complete such cure
so long as the cure is commenced within such thirty (30) day period and is diligently pursued to completion. Furthermore, notwithstanding anything to the contrary in Article 17(2), TENANT shall have a period of seven (7) days after notice from OWNER in which to cure any default in the payment of fixed rent or additional rent The foregoing does not limit the right of OWNER to impose the late charge and interest as applicable in accordance with Article 53(A).
55. Holdover: If the demised premises are not surrendered and vacated in the condition required by this Lease and at the time required by this Lease whether it be a natural expiration or an expiration due to default (time being of the essence), TENANT shall be liable to OWNER for (a) all losses, costs, liabilities and damages which OWNER may incur by reason thereof, including without limitation, consequential damages (if such holdover extends for more than sixty (60) days) and reasonable attorneys fees, and TENANT shall indemnify, defend and hold harmless OWNER against all claims made by any succeeding tenants against OWNER or otherwise arising out of or resulting from the failure of TENANT to timely surrender and vacate the demised premises in accordance with the provisions of this Lease, and (b) per diem use and occupancy with respect to the Demised Premises equal to two (2) times the fixed rent and additional rent payable under this Lease for the last year of the term of this Lease (which amount OWNER and TENANT presently agree is the minimum to which OWNER would be entitled, is presently contemplated by them as being fair and reasonable under such circumstances, and is not a penalty). In no event, however, shall this Article be construed as permitting TENANT to hold over in possession of the demised premises after the expiration or termination of the term of this Lease. The two (2) times rate shall be one and one-half(1-1/2) times for the first thirty (30) days of such holdover, and no consequential damages shall apply unless TENANT holds over for more than sixty 60) days.
56. Certificates: TENANT agrees that from time to time, within ten (10) days after OWNERS written request, TENANT will execute, acknowledge and deliver to OWNER and/or to any other person, firm, corporation, limited liability company, or entity, a statement certifying to such information regarding this Lease as OWNER or any of said others may request, including, without limitation, (i) the commencement and expiration dates of the term of this Lease, (ii) that this Lease is unmodified and in full force and effect (or if there have been modifications, that it is in full force and effect as modified and stating the modifications), (iii) the dates to which fixed rent, additional rent and any other sums due hereunder from TENANT have been paid in advance, (iv) the amount of security (if any), and (v) whether or not, OWNER is in default under this Lease, and if so, specifying each such default. TENANTs certificate shall inure to the benefit of OWNER and its successors and assigns, and may be relied upon by Owner as well as any other person, firm, corporation limited liability company, or other entity to whom such certificate is delivered (even if not addressed to the same), including any lender. Failure of TENANT to deliver such certificate will constitute TENANTS acknowledgment, which may be relied on by any person holding or proposing to acquire an interest in the building or this Lease (including, without limitation, any interest as mortgagee or ground lessor), that this Lease is unmodified and in full force and effect and will constitute, as to any such person, a waiver of any defaults on OWNERS part which may exist prior to the date of such notice. The foregoing shall not limit any other rights and remedies available to OWNER for breach of this Article.
57. Laws Governing: This Lease shall be governed and construed in accordance with the laws of New York State, applicable to agreements made and/or to be performed wholly within said State, and the parties hereto hereby irrevocably submit to the jurisdiction of the State and federal court located in the County of New York, City of New York. It shall be deemed to have been negotiated at arms-length by both the parties hereto, and any ambiguities or uncertainties herein shall not be construed for or against either of them. There shall be no presumption of construction against the drafter of this agreement as this agreement is a product of extensive negotiations between the parties. Each party shall have the right to injunctive relief for restraint of any violation or threatened violation of any term, condition or covenant of this Lease and to a decree compelling performance of any such term, condition of covenant of this Lease. The parties also hereby waive any claim that the State and federal courts located in the County of New York are inconvenient forums.
(A) At all times prior to the expiration of the term of this Lease, TENANT shall maintain on deposit with OWNER the sum of $243,109.90 as security for the due and faithful payment, as herein provided, of the rent, additional rent, charges and damages payable by TENANT under this Lease or pursuant to law and for the due and faithful keeping, observance and performance of all the other covenants, agreements, terms, provisions and conditions of this Lease on the part of TENANT to be kept, observed and performed. TENANT expressly acknowledges and agrees that OWNER may use, apply or retain the whole or any part of the security deposit under this Lease for the payment of any rent and additional rent or any other sum as to which TENANT is in default or for any sum which OWNER may expend or may be required to expend by reason of TENANTs default in respect of any of the terms, covenants and conditions of this Lease, as well as for any damages or deficiency in the reletting of the demised premises caused by TENANTS default, whatever such damages or deficiency accrued before or after summary proceedings or other re-entry by OWNER, all of the foregoing in such order and priority as OWNER may elect in its sole discretion. In the event any bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization or other creditor-debtor proceedings shall be instituted by or against TENANT, or its successors or assigns, the security deposit shall be deemed to be applied first to the payment of any rents and/or other charges due OWNER for all periods prior to the institution of such proceedings, and/or, at OWNERs option, in partial liquidation of OWNERs damages arising from such default of proceeding(s). If as a result of any such application to all or any part of such security, the amount of cash so on deposit with OWNER (exclusive of any interest) shall be less than the amount set forth above, TENANT shall deposit with OWNER cash in an amount equal to the deficiency within ten (10) business days after demand. The TENANTs obligation to pay such deficiency shall be treated as if it was an obligation to pay fixed rent or additional rent and shall be subject to all of the remedies for non-payment of fixed rent. The security deposit (if held by OWNER and not provided in a letter of credit) shall be held in an interest bearing account and the interest earned thereon, less the maximum annual administrative fee allowable to OWNER under law, shall be deemed a part of the security deposit. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained hereinabove or elsewhere in this Lease, in the event that Tenant, for a fourth time, is ever in monetary default or material non-monetary default (beyond any cure period as may apply) of any of the covenants, agreements, terms, provisions and conditions of this Lease, then, OWNER, at its option, may elect to require TENANT to deposit (or to increase the letter of credit), within ten (10) days after notice from OWNER, an additional months security under this Lease (calculated at the then monthly rate of fixed rent payable under this Lease), and thereafter the amount of security required to be maintained by Tenant throughout the term of this Lease shall be increased by such amount.
(B) Notwithstanding the foregoing, in lieu of a cash deposit, TENANT may deliver to OWNER a clean, irrevocable and unconditional standby Letter of Credit (the Letter of Credit) issued by and drawn upon Silicon Valley Bank or any commercial bank (hereinafter referred to as the Issuing Bank) having a tangible net worth of not less than One Billion and 00/100 ($1,000,000,000.00) Dollars, which Letter of Credit may be drawn by facsimile draft (if the issuers offices are located outside the City of New York), shall have a term of not less than one year, be in form and content acceptable to OWNER, be for the account of OWNER, and be in the amount of the Security Deposit. In the event TENANT defaults in the performance of any of the terms of this Lease, including the payment of rent, beyond any applicable cure period, or in the event of the filing of a bankruptcy proceeding by or against TENANT, OWNER may use, apply or retain the whole or any part of the Security Deposit, as represented by the Letter of Credit, by drawing down on the same to the extent required for the payment of any rent or for any sum which OWNER may expend or may be required to expend by reason of TENANTs default in respect of any of the terms of this Lease, including any damages or deficiency in the re-letting of the demised premises after termination of the Lease for Tenants default, whether accruing before or after summary proceedings or other re-entry by OWNER. In the case of every such use, application or retention, TENANT shall, on demand, pay to OWNER the sum so used, applied or retained which shall be added to the Security Deposit so that the same shall be replenished to its former amount, or, restore the Letter of Credit to the original required amount. The Letter of Credit shall provide that:
(i) The Issuing Bank shall pay to OWNER or its duly authorized representative an amount up to the face amount of the Letter of Credit upon presentation of the Letter of Credit and a sight draft in the amount to be drawn;
(ii) The Letter of Credit shall be deemed to be automatically renewed, without amendment, for consecutive periods of one year each during the term of this Lease (and shall remain in effect for not less than sixty (60) days following the expiration date of the Lease), unless the Issuing Bank sends written notice (hereinafter referred to as the Non-Renewal Notice) to OWNER by certified or registered mail, return receipt requested, or national overnight courier service requiring receipt, not less than sixty (60) days next preceding the then expiration date of the Letter of Credit, that it elects not to have such Letter of Credit renewed. OWNER covenants and agrees to return the Letter of Credit to Tenant on or before the sixty-first (61st) day following the expiration or termination date of the Lease;
(iii) If OWNER receives a Non-Renewal Notice and TENANT fails to provide a replacement Letter of Credit which meets the requirements of this Lease with an effective date commencing on the day following the expiration of the existing Letter of Credit not fewer than thirty (30) days prior to the expiration of the Letter of Credit, such failure shall constitute a material default under this Lease and OWNER shall have the right, exercisable by a sight draft, to receive the monies represented by the Letter of Credit (which monies shall be held by OWNER as a cash deposit pursuant to the terms of the printed portion of this Lease, pending the replacement of such Letter of Credit or TENANTs default after notice and the expiration of any applicable cure period hereunder); however, OWNERs holding of such cash security shall not be deemed a waiver of TENANTs default of its obligation to maintain the security in the form of a Letter of Credit); and
(iv) Upon OWNERs sale of OWNERs interest in the land and the Building, the Letter of Credit shall be transferable, without charge, by OWNER
If a bankruptcy proceeding is filed by or against TENANT, OWNER shall have the right, exercisable by a sight draft, to receive monies represented by the Letter of Credit. If a voluntary termination of this Lease occurs, OWNER shall have the right, exercisable by sight draft, to receive monies represented by the Letter of Credit in order to satisfy any fees and payments owed by TENANT in connection with such termination, including without limitation, accrued but unpaid rents and/or other charges payable pursuant to the Lease and any termination fees and all other amounts owed by TENANT to OWNER pursuant to any written agreement entered into between them with respect to such termination. If TENANT shall owe any late charges or fees or interest on late payments to OWNER pursuant to this Lease or otherwise pursuant to legal process or law, OWNER shall have the right, exercisable by sight draft, to receive monies represented by the Letter of Credit in order to satisfy such amounts owed by TENANT. In the event of a sale of OWNERs interest in the land and the Building, OWNER shall have the right to transfer (at no expense to OWNER) the cash security or Letter of Credit, as the case may be, deposited hereunder to the vendee or lessee, and OWNER shall be released by TENANT from all liability for the return of such cash security or Letter of Credit. In such event, TENANT agrees to look solely to the new OWNER for the return of said cash security or Letter of Credit. It is agreed that the provisions hereof shall apply to every transfer or assignment made of said cash security or Letter of Credit to a new OWNER. TENANT covenants that it will not assign or encumber, or attempt to assign or encumber, the monies or Letter of Credit deposited hereunder as security, and that neither OWNER nor its successors or assigns shall be bound by any such assignment, encumbrance, attempted assignment, or attempted encumbrance. In the event that at any time during the term of this Lease, OWNER, in OWNERs reasonable opinion, believes (a) that the net worth of the Issuing Bank shall be less than the minimum amount specified above, or (b) that circumstances have occurred indicating that the Issuing Bank may be incapable of, unable to, or prohibited from honoring the then existing Letter of Credit (hereinafter referred to as the Existing L/C) in accordance with the terms thereof, then, upon the happening of either of the foregoing, OWNER may send written notice to TENANT (hereinafter referred to as the Replacement Notice) requiring TENANT within fifteen (15) business days to replace the Existing L/C with a new letter of credit (hereinafter referred to as the Replacement L/C) from an Issuing Bank meeting the qualifications described hereinabove. Upon receipt of a Replacement L/C meeting the qualifications, OWNER shall forthwith return the Existing L/C to TENANT. In the event that (i) a Replacement L/C meeting the qualifications is not received by OWNER within the time specified, or (ii) OWNER reasonably believes an emergency exists, then in either event, the Existing L/C may be presented for payment by OWNER and the proceeds thereof shall be held by OWNER in accordance with this Lease, subject, however, to TENANTs obligation to replace such cash security with a new letter of credit meeting said qualifications.
(A) If, at any time prior to the termination of this Lease, any holder(s) of any mortgage(s) or underlying lease(s) or any other person or the successors or assigns of the forgoing (collectively referred to as Successor Owner) shall succeed to the rights of OWNER under this Lease, TENANT agrees, at the election and upon request of any Successor Owner to fully and completely attorn to and recognize any such Successor Owner, as TENANTs OWNER under this Lease upon the then executory terms of this Lease; provided such Successor Owner shall agree in writing to accept TENANTs attornment. The foregoing provisions of this paragraph shall inure to the benefit of any such Successor Owner shall apply notwithstanding that as matter of law, this Lease may terminate upon the termination of the Superior Lease, shall
be self-operative upon any such demand, and no further instruments shall be required to give effect to said provisions. Upon the request of any such Successor Owner, TENANT shall execute and deliver from time to time, instruments satisfactory to any such Successor Owner in recordable form if requested to evidence and confirm the foregoing provisions of this Paragraph acknowledging such attornment and setting forth the terms and conditions of its tenancy. Upon such attornment this Lease shall continue in full force and effect as a direct Lease between such Successor Owner and TENANT upon all of the then executory terms of this Lease except that such Successor Owner shall not be: (i) liable for any previous act or omission or negligence of OWNER under this Lease; (ii) subject to any counterclaim, defense or offset, expressly provided for in this Lease and asserted with reasonable promptness, which therefor shall have accrued to TENANT against OWNER; (iii) bound by any previous modification or amendment of this Lease made after the granting of such senior interest, or by any previous payment of more than one months Fixed Rent or Additional Rent, unless such modification or payment shall have been approved in writing by any Superior Lessee or Superior Mortgagee through or by reason of which the Successor Owner shall have succeeded to the rights of OWNER under this Lease; (iv) obligated to repair the demised premises or the building or any part thereof, in the event of total or substantial damage beyond such repair as can reasonably be completed with the net proceeds of insurance actually made available to Successor Owner, provided all insurance to be maintained by the OWNER hereunder is thus maintained; or (v) obligated to repair the demised premises or the building or any part thereof, in the event of partial condemnation beyond such repair as can reasonably be completed with the net proceeds of any award actually made available to Successor Owner, or consequential damages allocable to the part of the demised premises or the building not taken. Notwithstanding the foregoing, in the case of (iv) or (v) above, if such Successor Owner elects not to make the repairs set forth in such subsections, TENANT shall have the right to terminate this Lease upon written notice to such Successor Owner. Nothing contained in this subparagraph shall be construed to impair any right otherwise exercisable by any such Successor Owner.
(B) If, in connection with obtaining financing or refinancing for the building, a banking, insurance or other institutional lender shall request reasonable modifications to this Lease as a condition to such financing or refinancing, TENANT will not unreasonably withhold, delay or defer its consent thereto, provided that such modifications do not increase the obligations of TENANT hereunder (except, perhaps, to the extent that TENANT may be required to give notices of any defaults by OWNER to such lender and/or permit the curing of such defaults by such lender together with the granting of lender to get possession of the said building) or materially adversely affect the leasehold interest hereby created. In no event shall a requirement that the consent of any such lender be given for any modification of this Lease or for any assignment or sublease be deemed to materially adversely affect the leasehold interest hereby created, provided that TENANTs Lease term may not be interrupted.
60. Local Laws: In the event that the OWNER is required or directed to perform any improvements or other work to the building or any part thereof pertaining to or to conform with any laws, orders, regulations or requirements of any state, federal, municipal or local governments, departments, commissions, boards, agencies or other governmental or quasi-governmental authority, then and in such event TENANT shall pay to OWNER, as additional rent, TENANTs Share of the costs of such work and/or improvements, as the case may be, within ten (10) days after written notice from OWNER.
Partial Invalidity; Rent Regulation.
(A) If any term, covenant or condition of this Lease or the application thereof to any person or circumstance shall, to any extent, be invalid or unenforceable, the remainder of this Lease, or the application of such term, covenant or condition to persons or circumstances other than those as to which it is held invalid or unenforceable, shall not be affected thereby and each term, covenant or condition of this Lease shall be valid and be enforced to the fullest extent permitted by law.
(B) Should TENANT take advantage of or invoke any provision of any federal, state or local law, or proclamation, order, regulation or direction of any public officer or body, now in force or that may hereafter be enacted, granting to TENANT, during any year of the term of this Lease, the right or option to pay a rental less than the yearly fixed rent and additional rent and other charges payable during any such year by TENANT under this Lease, then and in such event, OWNER shall have the right and option of (i) terminating this Lease and the term hereof upon sixty (60) days prior written notice to TENANT, or (ii) electing to require TENANT to take such actions (at TENANTs cost and expense) and enter into such agreements as may be legally allowed in order to maintain and preserve the payment of the full fixed rent and additional rent payable hereunder. In the event OWNER shall elect to proceed pursuant to said subdivision (ii), and TENANTs obligation under law to pay the full fixed rent and additional rent hereunder shall be suspended or discharged during any period, TENANT covenants and agrees to pay to OWNER the amount of such unpaid fixed rent and additional rent immediately upon the earlier of the expiration of such period or the termination of this Lease. In addition, TENANT hereby waives any and all rights under any law, order or regulation, or under any court order, judgment, decision or direction, to require OWNER to enter into, or permit the renewal or extension of, the term of this Lease, including, without limitation, any right to cause the mandatory arbitration of the terms of any such renewal or extension, or any right of first refusal with respect to the leasing of the demised premises to which TENANT may become entitled. The provisions of this Article shall survive the termination of this Lease.
Sublease, Assignments, etc.:
(A) Except as may otherwise be expressly provided in this Article 62, TENANT will not, by operation of law or otherwise (including, without limitation, by merger or consolidation) cause or permit the assignment, mortgage, transfer or encumbrance of this Lease, nor sublet or permit the demised premises or any part thereof to be used by others without obtaining the prior written consent of OWNER in each instance. The consent by OWNER to any assignment or subletting shall not in any manner be construed to relieve TENANT from obtaining OWNERs express written consent to any other or further assignment or subletting nor shall any such consent by OWNER serve to relieve or release TENANT from its obligations to fully and faithfully observe and perform all of the terms, covenants and conditions of this Lease on TENANTs part to be observed and performed. TENANT further covenants and agrees that it shall not enter into any agreements for any space in the building with any tenants or subtenants (or affiliates thereof) in the building without the prior written consent of OWNER.
(B) Upon obtaining a proposed assignee or subtenant, upon terms satisfactory to TENANT, TENANT shall submit to OWNER in writing (w) the name of the proposed assignee or subtenant; (x) a fully executed assignment or sublease agreement, subject only to OWNERs consent; (y) the nature and character of the business and credit of the proposed assignee or subtenant; and (z) current financial statements, banking references and any other references and information reasonably requested by the OWNER, including those of the assignees or subtenants principals. Within thirty (30) days after receipt of the foregoing, OWNER may elect to recapture the demised premises if the transaction is an assignment or a subletting of all or substantially all of the demised premises (not including, however, the transactions contemplated in subparagraph (D) below), in which event this Lease shall terminate on the date set forth in the sublease or in the assignment, or sooner date as OWNER may elect, but not sooner than thirty (30) days after OWNERs election. TENANT expressly agrees that its notice to OWNER shall be deemed an irrevocable offer to OWNER for OWNER to exercise its recapture rights herein. If OWNER does not elect to recapture the demised premises as aforesaid, then OWNERs consent to any such proposed assignment or to a subletting of the entire demised premises shall not be unreasonably withheld, provided, however, that OWNER may withhold consent thereto if in the exercise of its sole judgment it determines that:
(i) the financial condition and general reputation of the proposed assignee or subtenant are not reasonably acceptable to OWNER;
(ii) the proposed use, including the specific clothing and apparel to be shown at the demised premises, does not comport with the particular market and price-point standards that OWNER has in effect for a majority of the buildings tenants (excepting the ground floor tenants), and is not otherwise in keeping with the character of the existing tenancies and the dignity and character of the building (but in no event shall the foregoing be deemed to enlarge the purposes for which the demised premises are expressly permitted to be used, as set forth on the first page of this Lease);
(iii) the nature of the occupancy, even pursuant to the permitted use, is such that it will cause an excessive density of employees or traffic or make excessive demands on the buildings services or facilities or in any other way will lessen the dignity or character of the building;
(iv) TENANT proposes to assign or sublet to one who, at the time, is a tenant or an occupant of the building, or a subsidiary, division or affiliate of any such tenant or occupant of the building, or to one with whom OWNER or its agents are, or were within the last six (6) months, negotiating for space in the building, or to one who, at the time, is a tenant or occupant of premises in any other building then owned or managed by OWNER or its affiliates, or proposes to sublet or assign to any person or entity which may be entitled to immunity, or which is not a domestic business entity subject to the jurisdiction of the Supreme Court of the State of New York, County of New York for all purposes; or
(v) TENANT proposes to assign or sublet all or a portion of the demised premises at a rental rate less than the higher of (a) the fixed rent and additional rent then payable under this Lease, or (b) the fixed and additional rental rate OWNER is then asking for other space in the building. Without limiting the foregoing, the demised premises (or the applicable portion thereof) shall not be listed or otherwise publicly advertised at a rental rate that is less than (a) or (b) above, but nothing herein prevents TENANT from (a) consummating a transaction at a rental rate that is less than such prevailing rate, or (b) disseminating broker materials regarding the availability of all or a portion of the demised premises, provided that any information regarding the rental therefor is furnished only upon specific individual request and not in a form or by a method which would identify the demised premises, TENANT and/or the building;
(C) Further, and as a condition of OWNERs consent to any assignment or subletting:
(i) TENANT, at the time of requesting OWNERs consent and at any later time up to and including the date of the proposed assignment or subletting, as the case may be, shall not be in default under this Lease;
(ii) TENANT shall confirm in writing that said assignment shall not relieve TENANT of its continuing liability through the balance of the term of this Lease, including any modifications, renewals or extensions hereof;
(iii) an original or duplicate original of the instrument of assignment and assumption agreement shall have been delivered to OWNER together with the request for OWNERs approval (or, if it was expressly stated herein that no such approval was required, then at least ten (10) days prior to the effective date thereof), which assignment and assumption agreement shall provide that the assignee assumes in writing all of the terms, covenants and conditions of this Lease on the part of TENANT hereunder to be performed and observed;
(iv) an original or duplicate original of the sublease shall have been delivered to OWNER together with the request for OWNERs approval (or, if it was expressly stated herein that no such approval was required, then at least ten (10) days prior to the effective date thereof), which sublease shall specifically state that each sublease is subject to all of the terms, covenants and conditions of this Lease, and shall also provide that in the event that this Lease shall be terminated, then, at OWNERs option, subtenant shall attorn to OWNER pursuant to the then executory terms and conditions of this sublease, except that OWNER shall not (1) be liable for any previous act or omission of TENANT under such sublease, (2) be subject to any offset that theretofore accrued to such subtenant against TENANT, or which will accrue based upon the acts or omissions of the TENANT prior to the date of attornment), or (3) be bound by any previous modification of such sublease or by any previous prepayment of more than one months fixed rent or any additional rent then due;
(v) OWNER may bill and TENANT shall pay all charges estimated by OWNER to be due through the date of assignment (without relieving TENANT or its assignee of the obligation to pay any balance due when the actual charges are computed);
(vi) each assignee (other than to an Affiliate in accordance with subparagraph (D) shall deposit with OWNER a sum equal to one (1) additional month of the then fixed rent as additional security deposit under this Lease;
(vii) any portion of the demised premises to be sublet and the remaining portion shall each be configured in such manner as to have direct access to the public corridor on the floor and otherwise reasonably configured for potential future use; OWNER may require that the sublet portion and the remainder of the demised premises share a single entrance and reception area; and
(viii) Except with respect to the transaction(s) permitted under subparagraph (D) below, TENANT shall pay to OWNER, as additional rent, an amount equal to fifty (50%) percent of any rents, additional charges or other considerations received by TENANT from the sublessee or assignee which are in excess of the fixed rent and additional rent payable during the balance of the term of this Lease (less reasonable attorneys fees and brokerage commissions, if applicable), if an assignment, or the balance of the term of the sublease, as the case may be. TENANT and such sublessee or assignee shall each certify the amount of said rental, charges and rent concessions, if any, in form reasonably satisfactory to OWNER. The sums payable under this subdivision (viii) be paid by TENANT to OWNER as and when received by TENANT.
(D) Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein or elsewhere in this Lease, and provided that the same is not for the purpose of avoiding the general prohibitions set forth in printed portion of this Lease or hereinabove, TENANT may, without the prior written consent of OWNER, assign this Lease (i) to an Affiliate of Tenant, (ii) to a successor of TENANT by consolidation or reorganization or (iii) in connection with the bona fide sale of all or substantially all of Tenants assets and/or shares, including all of its right, title and interest in this Lease and any other leases it holds in Manhattan, to a third party, provided that in each case, the tangible net worth of the acquiring entity of said shares and/or assets, or the successor entity in any merger or consolidation, shall be not less than the greater of the tangible net worth of TENANT existing prior to such transaction or a net tangible worth which is sufficient in the reasonable opinion of OWNER, for the satisfaction of the remaining obligations during the term of this Lease, computed in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, and said assignee, or the acquiring entity of said shares and/or assets, or the successor entity in any merger or consolidation, as the case may be, shall expressly and unconditionally assume by written agreement to perform all of the obligations of the TENANT hereunder, and such assignee shall be in compliance with subparagraph (C) above. OWNERs right to recapture the demised premises and to share in any excess rentals shall be inapplicable to the transactions set forth in this subparagraph (D) An Affiliate shall mean with respect to an entity, all entities directly or indirectly controlling, controlled by or under common control with such entity, where control control means possession, directly or indirectly, of the power to direct or cause the direction of the management and policies of an entity, whether through ownership of voting securities, by contract interest or otherwise.
(E) Without limiting any of the other provisions of this Lease, if TENANT is a corporation (other than one whose shares are regularly and publicly traded on the NYSE, AMEX or NASDAQ in which case the regular day-to-day transfer of shares thereof shall be deemed excluded from the provisions of this subparagraph (E)), or if TENANT is a limited liability company, partnership or other entity, other than an individual, TENANT represents that the ownership and power to vote the majority of its entire outstanding capital stock or other controlling interests in TENANT (or in each party comprising TENANT) belongs to and is vested in the individual person executing this Lease on behalf of TENANT. A breach of the foregoing representation or any transfer of said controlling interests in TENANT or in any entity which directly or indirectly controls, or is in ultimate control of TENANT, shall constitute an assignment and a material breach of this Lease, unless TENANT, prior to said assignment, shall have fully complied with the provisions of Article 11 of this Lease and this Rider Article whether the same be accomplished by merger, consolidation, operation of law, bankruptcy or otherwise.
(F) Notwithstanding anything contained in this Article to the contrary, OWNER shall not be obligated to entertain or consider any request by TENANT to assign this Lease or to sublet all or a part of the demised premises unless each request by TENANT is accompanied by (i) a non-refundable fee payable to OWNER in the amount of One Thousand Two Hundred ($1,200.00) Dollars, representing OWNERs administrative costs and expenses in processing each of TENANTs requests, and (ii) a non-refundable fee in the amount of One Thousand Eight Hundred ($1,800.00) Dollars, representing payment of OWNERs attorneys fees in connection with any such request.
(G) Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Lease, provided and so long as Tenant is not in default of this Lease beyond any applicable notice and cure period, Tenant shall be entitled to utilize a total amount not to exceed ten percent (10%) of the usable office area of the demised premises as so-called desk space, provided and so long as: (a) each user (i) has, and continues to have, business dealings with Tenant throughout the period of occupancy (other than by virtue of such occupancy), (ii) does not pay for its occupancy rights an amount greater than the fixed rent and additional rent that is reasonably allocable to the portion of the demised premises that said person utilizes as desk space, (iii) is a person not subject to any diplomatic or other immunity of any kind but rather is subject to the full jurisdiction of the courts of the State, City and County of New York, (iv) is not an occupant of any other part of the Building, and (v) uses the desk space for executive office purposes related to Tenants business and in keeping with the dignity and character of the building (as determined in Landlords good faith business judgment); (b) the area in which the desks are located is not separately demised from the balance of the demised premises and all such users enter into the interior areas of the demised premises through Tenants main reception area, (c) each user procures liability insurance in form and content reasonably acceptable to Landlord, with limits of not less than $1,000,000.00, naming Tenant and Landlord and its managing agent as additional insureds, and (d) Tenant notifies Landlord at least ten (10) business days prior to allowing such desk space to be used, of the name of each such person and their respective social security number, as well as the nature of such persons ongoing business relationship with Tenant and delivers to Landlord, together with said notification, a license agreement in form and content reasonably acceptable to Landlord.
63. Access to Premises: Section 13 is hereby supplemented by adding the following sentence as the second sentence in such section: OWNER shall provide TENANT with not less than twenty-four (24) hours prior written notice (except in case of an emergency) in advance of such entry (which notice may be by email, telephone, or hand delivery), and, upon request, OWNER shall be accompanied by a representative of TENANT during such access and entry to the demised premises, if such representative is present when OWNER arrives for such access.
Conditional Limitation and Repeated Material Defaults:
Notwithstanding any other provision in this Lease, this Lease is expressly subject to the conditional limitation that if TENANT shall default (beyond any applicable grace period) in the performance of any monetary or a material non-monetary term, covenant, or condition of this Lease (including the payment of rent) more than four (4) times in the aggregate in any period of twelve (12) months, then, notwithstanding that such defaults shall have been cured within any applicable grace period, and provided that upon the fourth such material breach OWNER provides TENANT with written notice in its associated notice of breach that upon any further material default OWNER may elect to exercise its right to terminate pursuant to this Section, any further material default shall be deemed to be deliberate for which default OWNER may terminate this Lease without service of any default notice or conditional limitation notice and TENANT shall not have the right to cure such default by application to any court of competent jurisdiction, and upon OWNER serving TENANT a ten (10) day notice of termination of this Lease and upon the expiration of said ten (10) day period, this Lease and term granted hereby shall end and expire as fully and completely as if the expiration of such ten (10) day period were the day herein definitely fixed for the expiration of this Lease and TENANT shall then quit and surrender the demised premises to OWNER as required under the terms of this Lease.

Notwithstanding anything to the contrary hereinabove, the effective date of termination must be the last day of a calendar month. Time is of the essence with respect OWNERs receipt of the required payment together with such notice, and the rights of Tenant hereunder shall be null and void if Tenant fails to timely comply. Upon Tenant complying with the provisions hereof, and provided that Tenant is not in monetary default of the Lease or in non-monetary default of this Lease beyond any applicable cure period provided for therein (which non-monetary default is then cured within the applicable cure period), the Lease shall terminate as of the early termination date. The amounts payable under subclauses (i) and (ii) above shall be waived in the event that TENANT leases larger space in the building for a period of not less than three (3) additional years.
A. Conflict; Headings: In the event of any inconsistency between the printed portion of this Lease and this Rider, the terms of this Rider shall control. The Article headings are for each of reference only and shall not be used to construe or in any way define or limit the provisions hereof.

F. Damage or Destruction: Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in Article 9 of this Lease, OWNER shall not be required to repair or rebuild the demised premises and may terminate this Lease if fifty percent or more of the building of which the demised premises is a part are damaged by any fire or other casualty (whether or not the demised premises were damaged thereby), or if such damage or destruction occurs during the last year of the term of this Lease, upon thirty days prior notice given within ninety days after such fire or other casualty, or, if later, within thirty days after the date on which the adjustment of the claims relating thereto.

Q. Additional Rules and Regulations: The following additional Rules and Regulations are hereby incorporated into and made a part of the Rules and Regulations set forth at the end of the printed form portion of this Lease:
15. (a) TENANT shall not invite to the demised premises, or permit the visit of, persons in such numbers or under such conditions as to interfere with the use and enjoyment of any of the entrances, corridors, passenger elevators, freight elevators, and other facilities of the building by any other tenants. Fire exits and stairways are for emergency use only, and they shall not be used for any other purpose by the TENANT or its employees, licensees, contractors, suppliers, or invitees. OWNER reserves the right to control and operate the public portions of the building and public facilities, as well as facilities furnished for common use of the tenants of the building, in such manner as it deems best for the benefit of said tenants generally. TENANT shall implement a policy that precludes its personnel from smoking in any part of the building or in or near any of the entrances thereto, and shall take whatever steps are lawfully permitted to prevent the same.
(b) TENANT shall comply with the security procedures that OWNER reasonably adopts from time to time for the building. TENANT acknowledges that OWNERs security procedures may include, without limitation, (i) OWNERS denying entry to the building by any person who does not present a Building pass or who does not comply with OWNERS procedures regarding the registration of visitors to the building (including, but not limited to valid photo identification), and (ii) procedures governing the inspection of freight that arrives at the loading facilities for the building. TENANT shall subject to inspection by OWNER or OWNERS designee all items being brought into the building by or on behalf of TENANT (including, without limitation, packages, boxes, bags, handbags, attache cases, and suitcases). OWNER may refuse entry into the building to any person who refuses to cooperate with such inspection or who is carrying any item which has a reasonable likelihood of being dangerous to persons or property. OWNER shall have the right to require TENANT to (x) direct persons who are delivering packages to the demised premises to make delivery to an office in the building that OWNER designates (in which case OWNER shall make arrangements for such packages to be delivered to TENANT using other personnel that OWNER engages and TENANT shall pay TENANTs Share of the costs incurred by OWNER in providing such service, including pick-up of packages from the demised premises if the same is a part of such service), or (y) arrange for such persons to be escorted by a representative of TENANT while such person makes delivery to the demised premises. TENANT acknowledges that it shall be responsible for the acts and omissions of all persons for whom it requests a building pass or who otherwise visit the building as agents, clients, patrons, invitees, suppliers, contractors and/or guests of TENANT or any of TENANTS employees or subtenants, and shall be liable to OWNER for the acts of each and all of the foregoing. TENANT acknowledges and agrees that any person whose presence in the building at any time shall, in the good faith judgment of OWNER, be prejudicial to the safety, character, reputation and interests of the building or of its tenants (regardless of whether any pass has been issued thereto) may be denied access to the building or may be ejected therefrom. In case of emergency, invasion, riot, public excitement or other commotion, OWNER may prevent all access to the building during the continuance of the same, by closing the doors or otherwise for the safety of the tenants and protection of property in the building. OWNER may require any person leaving the building with any package or other object to exhibit a pass from TENANT from whose premises the package or object is being removed, but the establishment and enforcement of such requirement shall not impose any responsibility on OWNER for the protection of any tenant, including TENANT, against the removal of property from the demised premises, OWNER shall, in no way, be liable to TENANT or any other person for damages or loss arising from the admission, exclusion or ejection of any person to or from TENANTs demised premises or the building under the provisions of this rule.
(c) TENANT covenants and agrees that throughout the term, it shall not suffer, allow or permit any vibration, noise or odor to emanate from the demised premises. If the same occurs, TENANT shall immediately cause the abatement thereof, and if any such condition is not immediately remedied, then OWNER may treat such failure on the part of TENANT to remedy such condition as a material default of this Lease on the part of TENANT hereunder, entitling OWNER to any of its remedies pursuant to the terms of this Lease. TENANT shall not subject any fixtures or equipment in or on the demised premises which are affixed to the realty, to any mortgage, liens, conditions, sales agreements, security interests or encumbrances. TENANT also covenants and agrees not to permit any cooking or food preparation whatsoever in the demised premises except as may occur in connection with use of the pantry including but not limited to use of a microwave oven (but not any warming or heating devices that require exterior exhaust) or otherwise in connection with services provided by service providers approved by Owner, such as caterers.
R. Entire Agreement; Modification: TENANT expressly acknowledges and agrees that OWNER has not made and is not making, and TENANT, in executing and delivering this Lease, is not relying upon, any warranties, representations, promises or statements, except to the extent, if any, the same are expressly set forth in this Lease or in any other written agreement which may be made between the parties concurrently with the execution and delivery of this Lease. It is understood and agreed that all understandings and agreements heretofore had between the parties are merged in this Lease which alone fully and completely expresses their agreements and that the same is entered into after full investigation, neither party relying upon any statement or representation not embodied in this Lease, made by the other. Any agreement hereafter made between said parties to change, waive, terminate, release or otherwise modify or supplement the provisions of this Lease, in whole or in part, shall be ineffective unless in writing and signed by the party or parties to be charged therewith.
S. Submission of Lease; Execution: The submission by TENANT of an executed counterpart of this Lease shall be deemed to constitute an irrevocable offer by TENANT to OWNER for a period of thirty days from the date of tender thereof; however, the submission by OWNER of this Lease for examination or of any execution copies does not constitute a reservation or option for the demised premises in favor of TENANT, and this Lease shall be binding upon OWNER only upon OWNERs countersignature and the unconditional delivery to TENANT (or TENANTs attorney) of a fully executed counterpart of this Lease, and OWNERs receipt of the checks for the first months fixed rent and the security deposit, if applicable.
