You also need to know the scope of, is this going to be a commercial property that you are going to use for your own use or is it going to be rented out?
Find out what the leases are in the buildings, the duration and the amount of money, because you are going to need to put that in perspective. You are going to have to, also, talk with hopefully with other tenants in other buildings and landlords to learn square footage.
