Staff recommends approval of the revised and corrected Consent to Assignment of ground lease among Highlands Centre, Mercy Flight Southeast, Inc., and the City of Leesburg.
In June 2001, the City entered into a lease with Highlands Centre for property at the Leesburg Airport. The site was used to construct a hangar and the primary tenant since that time has been Angel Flight Southeast. Angel Flight Southeast (now known as Mercy Flight Southeast, Inc.) purchased the hangar from Highlands Centre, and a Consent to Assignment of Lease was approved by the City at the February 12, 2007, meeting.
The Consent to Assignment of Lease provided for an additional five-year period in the lease term with a current monthly rent on this site of $317.18 plus tax. This amount is adjusted every two years based on the Consumers Price Index. The initial lease period will end June 30, 2021.
After the Commission approved the consent and during finalization of the Consent to Assignment of Lease, staff found a misstatement in how the lease had been changed from one entity to another entity. The Consent to Assignment of ground lease approved February 12, 2007 shows the lease was first in the name of Pringle Development. The only Consent to Assignment of Lease on file at the time this lease was executed was one from Highland Centre to Angel Flight Southeast. This revised and corrected Consent to Assignment of ground lease reflects the correct transition. All other parts of the lease remain the same.
1. Approve the revised and correct Consent to Assignment of ground lease, or
2. Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate
There is no fiscal impact with this approval.
