No. Occupancy requirements for certification are applied to the entire property, based on its majority type (called "EPA Calculated - Property Type").
Portfolio Manager only collects “% Occupancy” once, as a descriptor for the property as a whole (you do this on the Details tab, under Basic Information). This is for a 12 month average. So, you need to take all Property Uses into account when determining your property's Occupancy.
- If you have a property that is combined Office/Retail/Multifamily and the majority type is Office, then the 50% occupancy rule applies.
- If you have a property that is combined Office/Retail/Multifamily and the majority type is Multifamily, then the 75% occupancy rule applies.
- Using an example with numbers, say you have a 100,000 square foot property: 60,000 sf multifamily and 40,000 sf Office. The Multifamily space is 70% occupied (60,000 * .7 = 42,000 sq ft are occupied) and the Office is 100% occupied (40,000 * 1.00 = 40,000 sq ft are occupied). The property has 82,000 sf occupied out of 100,000 sf, so the property is 82% occupied. Since the majority type is Multifamily, it must be greater than 75% occupied, and it is.

70% = 42,000
100% = 40,000
82,000 total -> 82%
