The city and the developers selected for the World Trade Center Four Seasons are moving forward and negotiating the final lease for the project.
The developers have planned a $364 million, 350-room Four Seasons with 76 hotel-serviced residences, and the construction of two new wings to either side of the building.
We’ve got a draft of the lease for you to take a look at, after our friends at nola.com uploaded it to Scribd.
A rough outline of payments to the city under the 99 years lease include:
A $1 million nonrefundable deposit at lease signing and a $4 million deposit in escrow that goes to the city once financing closes.
Base rent of $100,000 per month during construction.
Once the hotel opens, annual rent of $3.25 million for ten years, $3.75 million for the second ten years, then rent adjusts with inflation.
In year 2, in addition to the base rent, 5 percent of gross revenues from the TBD cultural attraction being built on the top floor.
In the 11th year, 5 percent of gross revenues from all other revenue generators of the project.
The City Council will vote on the lease as early as May 7.
