SUBJECT:

 

Amendment to Transportation Security Administration/General Services 
Administration Main Lease #000307 

 

REQUESTED ACTION 

Request for authorization for the Chief Executive Officer to extend the existing Main Lease of 
the Transportation Security Administration (TSA), represented and negotiated by the United 
States General Services Administration (GSA). 

SYNOPSIS 

Port of Seattle (“Port”) staff requests approval for a lease amendment to extend the TSA’s Main 
Lease #000307 (“Main Lease”), which includes break rooms and operational offices located 
throughout the Seattle-Tacoma International Airport (“Airport”) terminal complex.  Exhibit A 
provides an overview of premises contained in this Lease.  The Main Lease had a term of five (5) 
years, was executed on December 16, 2002, and is currently in holdover status.  This amendment 
will increase the rental rate retroactive to the Main Lease expiration date and will reflect changes 
to the premises that have occurred during the holdover period. 

BACKGROUND 

The TSA earlier added 14,524 sq.ft. of office space in two separate locations at the Airport, both 
of which required significant tenant improvement projects and two separate leases as described 
below.  Note:  These facilities are separate from the leased areas referenced in this memo totaling 
9,852 sq.ft.  These previous locations are referred as “Mezzanine Offices” and “C1 Building”.  
TSA moved into the Mezzanine Offices in September, 2008, and is moving into the C1 Building 
premises in May 2009.  These facilities specifically required separate agreements because of the 
differing site conditions; the C1 Building was new construction whereas the Mezzanine Offices 
were a major remodel.  It took these two federal agencies over six (6) years to justify, fund, 
design, construct and move into these spaces.  Due to the complexities of issues associated with 
these two new spaces, the parties involved agreed to put the existing Main Lease into holdover 
status until both construction projects and leases were completed.  As part of this holdover
