Landlord’s Entry
Landlord may enter the Premises at all reasonable hours to perform its obligations under this Lease. During the last 12 months of the Term, Landlord may enter the Premises with reasonable prior notice to tenant to show the Premises to prospective tenants.
Right to Exclude
Landlord may require that tenant, its Affiliates and guests comply with each reasonable Security measure that Landlord may establish as a condition for entry to the Premises or Building. These measures may include submitting to a search by persons or devices employed by Landlord, presenting an identification card or pass issued by the government, Landlord, or both, being announced to tenant and accepted as a visitor by tenant, and signing a register on entry and exit. Any person who cannot comply with these requirements may be denied access. If Landlord requires a Building pass issued by Landlord as a condition of entry to the Premises, Building or Special Project, Landlord will furnish a Building pass to all persons reasonably designated by tenant in writing. Landlord may exclude or expel any person who, in Landlord’s reasonable opinion, is intoxicated or under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
Tenant will not cause the Common Areas, sidewalks or driveways outside the Building to be obstructed. Landlord may remove, at tenant’s expense, any such obstruction without prior notice to tenant.
10 and 120 South Riverside is in full compliance with the Smoke-Free Illinois Act of 2008. According to building regulations, smoking is prohibited. Smoking is also prohibited on the plazas, except for at the designated smoking areas. These areas contain a cigarette butt receptacle and are located at the southwest corner of both 10 and 120 South Riverside.
Tenant will place trash in proper receptacles on the Premises provided by tenant at tenant’s cost, or in Building receptacles designated by Landlord. Tenant may not litter in the Common Areas, or sidewalks or driveways outside the Building.
Garbage Disposals
Garbage disposals are not allowed in the building, because they increase plumbing issues.

Keys and Locks
Landlord may from time to time install and change locks on entrances to Building, Common Areas or Premises, and will provide tenant a number of keys to meet tenant’s reasonable requirements. Additional keys will be furnished by Landlord at tenant’s cost. At the end of the Term, tenant will promptly return to Landlord all keys for the Building and Premises issued by Landlord to tenant. Unless tenant obtains Landlord’s prior written consent, tenant will not add or change any locks on any door to, in or about the Premises. If, with Landlord’s consent, tenant installs any lock incompatible with the Building master locking system, tenant will: relieve Landlord of each Lease obligation that requires access to each affected area; indemnify Landlord against any Claims resulting from forced entry to each affected area in an emergency; and, at the end of the Term, remove each incompatible lock and replace it with a Building Standard lock at tenant’s expense. Please use the Work Order System to request additional or replacement keys.
Unless tenant obtains Landlord’s prior written consent (which may be withheld in Landlord’s sole discretion), tenant may not:
