photo shoot for a fashion line

Good Evening, I came across your space and thought it would be awesome for a photo shoot. We have a fashion line and will be shooting 3-4 models. We wanted to get some shots in the rooftop as well if that's possible. I also saw there is a 15 min grace period, just wanted to make sure. Thank you and looking forward to shooting at your space! "

I am a portrait photographer and I would be interested to rent your space to have a portrait session there. Would you have any availability on the 2nd ? I entered time but I am quite flexible. Also, can you see the skyline from the window ? or do you have access to any rooftop location ? Thank in advance for all the info and I am extremely looking forward to meet you and shoot in your space.
