Class I are typically older brick structures located around the downtown core in districts that are revitalized as downtown space becomes more costly. The Class I buildings provide value due to proximity to central business districts in areas well served by public transportation, distinctive internal and external environments that assist tenants in attracting, retaining and motivating employees, significantly lower overall occupancy costs than those that prevail in the central business districts. The tenant base is well diversified including a full range of service and professional firms, telecommunications and information technology providers, media and film groups and storefront retailers.
