Staff recommends approval of the lease agreement with Black Tie Real Estate & Investments, Incorporated to lease space at the Business Incubator for a three-year term.
The Business Incubator currently has two available offices for new and emerging businesses that will provide services or a product to our community. Black Tie Real Estate is applying to occupy one of those spaces. Black Tie has been in operation for only one year, and its primary operation is real estate. The company will be allowed to operate in the business incubator for a three year period.
The owner has completed the University of Central Florida Excellence in Entrepreneurship course and plans to hire five new employees over the next twelve months.
1. Approve the three-year contract between Black Tie Real Estate & Investments, Inc and the City of Leesburg for lease space; or
2. Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate.
The lease term will generate $11,400 over the life of the agreement.
