Success Story - Kerbey Lane Cafe'


Savings: 

  • Increased TI allowance from $37.95/sf to more than $47.47/sf in addition to no liability and no cost for Fire Line to be installed.
  •  Percentage rent – 2% of $3.7 vs 2% of 3.5million.
  • Improved Renewal/Extension Option language so that it maxed out at 95% of fair market, and then defined fair market rates.
  • Capped Op Ex at max of 5% increase per year.


     

 Issues:

  • KLC had negotiated a lease on their own & didn't like it so they walked away from it.  They asked for John's assistance due to his being the current Land Lord.
  • They either wanted to move or renegotiate their current lease agreement.
  • Needed more TI allowance and less liability.

Results:

  • Went out to the market and got offers from 2 other competing, close by locations with more TI, less rent, and more Landlord provided improvements to use as leverage w/ the Corners as well as a Lease offer from downtown site
