If your vacant space is 10% or more of the building's Gross Floor Area (over 12 months), it must be input as a separate Property Use as follows:
- Property Type = Property Type that it would be if it was occupied (Office, Medical Office, etc).
- Weekly Operating Hours = 0
- Workers on Main Shift = 0
- Number of Computers = 0
- Percent Heated and Percent Cooled = Report conditioning as it occurs in the vacant space
Note: Only Offices, Medical Offices, Banks, Courthouses, and Financial Centers are required to enter vacant Property Uses.
The below property types also have a minimum occupancy requirements, so if your vacancies put your occupancy below these levels, you will need to update your occupancy as well.
- Office/Bank/Courthouse/Financial Center: <50%
- Hotel: <55%
- Multifamily: <75%
