Moving Procedures 

Certificates of Insurance
Please review your lease to determine the exact requirements for insurance. Evidence of compliance with this portion of the Lease, in the form of Certificates of Insurance, should be submitted prior to move-in.

It is required that a current certificate of insurance be on file for the term of your lease. Most insurance renews annually, therefore each year the certificate needs to be updated. Additionally, any vendor or contractor employed by a tenant and performing labor at the property must submit a certificate of insurance prior to the commencement of work. Usually the vendor or contractor will be required to have insurance coverage limits equal to the Brookfield Properties Corporation minimum limits, but large, significant work projects may require higher insurance coverage limits to be provided (example: major construction). Please contact the Property Management Office with any questions and/or concerns. This includes movers, telephone vendors, computer cable installers, cleaners, furniture assemblers, etc.

Freight/Dock Elevator Reservations
Tenants may only reserve freight elevators on weekdays before 7:00 a.m. and after 6:00 p.m., or on weekends. The freight elevator is reserved in four-hour blocks for a charge. The freight elevator will be operated by a security guard provided by the Property Management Office.
