Offer Details

RGM is offering prime commercial office space to prospective tenants at Savannah East.

Rental Rate

The base rental rate is TT$15.00 per square foot. The actual rate will be determined by different factors including the quantity of space to be leased, the term of the lease, and current market conditions.

The Building Space

The building has approximately 78,732 square feet of net rentable square feet available to be leased. The areas are broken down as follows:

  • Ground - 2,168 sq/ft
  • First - 5,598 sq/ft & 3,917 sq/ft
  • Second - 13,047 sq/ft
  • Third - 13,047 sq/ft
  • Fourth - 13,047 sq/ft
  • Fifth - 13,047 sq/ft
  • Sixth - 11,097 sq/ft

N.B.: These, and all measurements, are subject to change upon formal re-measure of the building on completion of construction. At that time, the building will be surveyed and all measurements formalised by an RICS certified consultant – Linden Scott and Associates. Linden Scott and Associates is RGM’s surveyor of record with regard to Savannah East. All measurements will be in accordance with the BOMA Standard Method of Measuring Floor Area in Office Buildings (ANSI/BOMA z.65.1-1996 of the Building Owners and Managers Association).

Space is being offered at a minimum size of 2,600 square feet, which represents approximately ¼ of a standard floor plate. CAD drawings of all floor plates are contained on the included DVD.

Service Rent and Electricity

In addition to the base rental rate, the prospective Tenant shall be charged service rent for the proportion of the cost of the common area services. These details are listed in Part 2 of the Draft Lease which is provided. The Service Rent estimate for the first year of the Lease is TT$5.22 +/- per sq/ft. This does not include electricity costs which are subsequently invoiced to each tenant based on prorating the monthly bill received, as a proportion of the net square footage occupied by each tenant.

The prospective Tenant’s cost of electricity for the Demised Premises is to be paid separately from the Service Rent, and the Landlord will separately invoice the electricity costs monthly, based on the proportion of the rentable area leased to the Tenant. A management fee of 3% will be charged on both service charge and electricity.

At the end of each year, the cost to the Landlord for providing the services under the Service Rent will be audited by reputable independent auditors. The audited cost figures will be used as the basis for computing any adjustments necessary from the previous year, and for establishing the budget for the following year.

Building Details

  1. The building is a modern, seven-storey, geometric structure overlooking the Queen’s Park Savannah, with the lobby and general building access fronting the Savannah
  2. The design incorporates rooftop amenities that include a covered dining area and bar, an enclosed gym, and an outdoor recreational space. These amenities are accessible to all tenants and can be used for meals, appropriate daily activities, and approved functions. The rooftop, which includes a catering and server station, offers an entertaining area for small corporate functions.
  3. The building comes with a minimum of 196 car park spaces. There will be three levels of parking, two of which will be underground. All the parking areas will be accessed by the building’s elevators and will be fully secured and monitored.
  4. The main entrance lobby will be a two-storey atrium with modern, high-end finishes, defined by a 25’-high Carlisle Harris mural commissioned specifically for this project. The lobby will also include the first line of security for the internal spaces and the building’s reception desk area.
  5. All the floors except the first will be open plan, with the service core located at the centre of the building. The service core, which includes the floor lobbies and elevator access, will also include all data, electrics, and HVAC connections. All the main floor areas will have an integrated access floor to allow for easy and flexible tenant outfitting and installation
  6. There will be fully furnished and landlord managed meeting areas on the ground floor. This shared space will be made available to all tenants for a minor cost covered under common area charges. This space will allow for tenants, who do not want to use valuable permanent space for occasional meetings, to have access to modern, managed, meeting and training spaces on-site
  7. There will be a ground floor locker room, shower, and changing area. This will be made available to tenants who wish to avail themselves of the Savannah for walking, jogging, or other exercise related activities

Parking

The lease of the Demised Premises will entitle the prospective tenant to a parking ratio of 1 car spot for every 500 sq/ft of space occupied in designated covered parking spaces in the secure basement parking levels. There will also be additional parking spaces available for rental prorated and then assigned on the basis of availability. There will be a designated visitor parking area on the ground floor level.

Services

Security

RGM’s objective is to provide the highest levels of security while still maintaining a level of discretion and professionalism that is appropriate for an A-class building. Measures include.

  • An integrated smart access system, with single badging, programmable and customisable for all access profiles.
  • Modern optical turnstiles and/or readers for main access areas and parking areas.
  • Full 24/7 camera coverage, live-monitored and backed up from RGM’s round-the-clock control room at Queen’s Park West.
  • Individual screening and selection for all on-site security personnel.
  • Site specific, general service and customer-contact training for all security personnel.
Standby Services
  • The building will have a modern standby power system to provide backup power for all tenants.
  • The building will have 40,000 gallons of water on-site for general usage and for the fire suppression system.
  • Full 24/7 camera coverage, live-monitored and backed up from RGM’s round-the-clock control room at Queen’s Park West.
  • Individual screening and selection for all on-site security personnel.
  • Site specific, general service and customer-contact training for all security personnel.
Life Safety
  • The building will have a modern, state-of-the-art fire detection and fire suppression system for all areas, including parking.
  • There will be emergency escape routes at both ends of the building, as well as the central core.
Monitoring and Control
  • All of the building’s operations will be managed by a Building Management System that will allow both automated and real-time manual control.
  • All the building’s systems, equipment, sensors (flood, electrical, etc.), will be remote-monitored from RGM’s round-the-clock control room at Queen’s Park West.

AREA CALCULATION EXAMPLES

RGM uses the BOMA methodology of calculating rentable and chargeable square footage.

On the following pages, RGM has given three examples of area calculations for the purposes of determining the chargeable square footage or what is defined as the Demised Premises. As follows

  • Typical Floor – This calculation example assumes that a tenant will occupy an entire floor, sharing that floor with no other tenants
  • Shared or Split Floor – This calculation assumes that a tenant will share a floor with another tenant and common area calculations, specific to sharing a floor plate, are illustrated.
  • Ground Floor – The ground floor calculations are extracted as that floor includes the lobby and other spaces where the charges are apportioned across the entire building. This would be similar to the sixth floor
These examples are meant to be illustrative only

NAMING RIGHTS

Make your mark at Savannah East.

Savannah East offers the unique opportunity for one premier tenant to put its company name on the building and create a significant and memorable brand presence. The location and quality of the building allow for great visibility in a high-traffic area – an outstanding support mechanism for any corporate strategic plan.

The building’s design allows for logo placement in four directions:

  1. From the North coming around the Queen’s Park Savannah
  2. From the East, looking down from the Lady Young Road
  3. Southward, facing Port of Spain and the commercial districts, and
  4. East across the Savannah

Logo placement on the seventh floor will also allow for visibility over a significant distance, in all directions.

Naming rights availability will be subject to commercial considerations, including the total square footage and term of the lease, as well as a license fee.

Service Charge

A QUICK GUIDE TO CHARGES

Servus Limited is an affiliate company that provides facilities management for all RGM buildings. Part of this responsibility is the management of the service charges including budgeting, procurement, and expenditure.

The building’s service charges are divided into “hard” and “soft” services. Hard services help ensure that the building’s mechanical and electrical systems are operating efficiently, reliably and safely, while soft services include items like building security, the reception area staffing, cleaning, and other daily maintenance duties. The facilities management team also handles the monitoring and performance review of contractors for all services provided to the building.

The costs associated with this type of maintenance are referred to in the real estate industry as “service charges” or “CAM Charges”. Every year, RGM and Servus prepare a service charge budget that is reviewed and approved by both parties. This budget projects service charge expenses for the year in detail, in order to accurately determine the per-square-foot rate for that year. Works or services associated with service charge costs are managed by Servus and paid for through each tenant’s monthly service charge contribution.

Refer to Schedule 4 of the RGM Lease (on the DVD enclosed at the back of this package) for more information with regard to service charges.

Direct Charges

Tenants may occasionally require works to be conducted within their rented office space for their own purpose, and at their own direction and cost. Because this would not be a building service function, and is not related to the building or landlord services, it is the tenants’ responsibility. However, Servus can provide these services. Should you wish to engage Servus for your internal space improvements or repairs, there would be a direct charge subject to a fixed and agreed management fee. It is recommended that Servus carry out or supervise these types of works because they are most familiar with the building’s operations.

Once a tenant makes a direct request of Servus, the company will prepare a requisition form detailing the cost of the job, along with a projected cost of any additionals related to labour, safety, or supervision that may be required. Servus will need the tenant’s sign-off on the requisition before proceeding with the project. Servus then submits their bills to RGM for settlement and RGM, in turn, invoices the tenant for reimbursement.

Electricity

Electricity is a pass-through cost. RGM pays the electricity on a monthly basis and the cost is passed on to the tenants and apportioned by their square footage. The electricity bill and the accompanying worksheet are always provided for tenants’ information.
