David Byrne Announces American Utopia World Tour
"After revealing that his new album will be called American Utopia and releasing its first single, “Everybody’s Coming to My House,” David Byrne has announced a list of tour dates for what he promises will be “the most ambitious show I’ve done since the shows that were filmed for Stop Making Sense.” To that end, the show will include a 12-piece band who will join Byrne on stage for a choreographed concert.
The tour is indeed ambitious in scope, with shows across North and South America and Europe. Byrne had previously released tickets for a small string of tour dates in March; all of his March U.S. dates have since sold out. With this new announcement, he has greatly expanded the list of cities on his tour roster, from 10 to over 75, including several festivals across the world. The tour kicks off with a sold out concert in Red Bank, N.J. on March 3, just a few days before the March 9 release of American Utopia, and runs well into August 2018.

Staff recommends that the City Council approve the following document: Resolution authorizing the City Manager to enter into the MOU between City of Mesa and R^3 MESA, LLC.   

Background 
The City was approached by R^3 MESA, LLC, a private development company, with a unique proposal for a mixed-use development on the City-owned Pepper Place surface parking lot located south of Pepper Pl and east of Robson (see attached Exhibit A).

Discussion 
Summarized below, the MOU establishes the primary deal points for further development and lease/purchase agreement negotiations.  

Developer Obligations
In conjunction with further negotiations,
  • provide a business plan that details the development pro forma (acquisition, development, and operating costs;
  • gross and net operating revenues; and operation and maintenance costs),
  • projected commercial and residential lease rates, market analysis, and demonstrated tenant interest. 
  • The developer may seek abatement of property taxes through the Government Property Lease Excise Tax (GPLET) Program.
  • The business plan must detail the City’s proposed role and how the inclusion of GPLET impacts the project’s pro forma. 
In conjunction with further negotiations, provide City Manager with sufficient evidence of financial capacity and investor commitments to successful execute and complete the project.

Minimum development improvements include:

Developer will enter into either
  • A ground lease with an option to purchase. 
The ground lease will be a long-term lease in which developer will pay a reduced rental amount for the first 15 years.
After 15 years, developer will pay a market rate rental amount for remainder of lease term. There may also be an option to purchase the property at fair market value. This option is not subject to GPLET
 
OR
  • A real estate option purchase agreement with the City.
Purchase Price will be current appraised value, which may be adjusted in consideration of the benefits the City will receive (operations and maintenance of City parking spaces, conversion of surface parking to covered structured parking, and a permanent easement for City Parking). This option may include GPLET. 

The Developer will have control of the site either upon the lease effective date or upon closing under the real estate purchase agreement, as applicable. 

Developer is solely responsible for the customary operation and maintenance of City Parking spaces and shared drive aisles for 15 years.
After 15 years, the City is responsible for operations and maintenance of City Parking spaces.  

City Obligations 
City will enter into either a ground lease with an option to purchase or a real estate purchase agreement.   
City will support qualification of the project for property tax abatement through GPLET.
If project elects to enter a GPLET agreement, City will engage an independent third party to complete an economic benefit analysis.  

The City Parking will remain open for public use and/or permit parking.

City will enter into a Development Agreement for the Project, which may include provisions whereby the City will reimburse developer for construction of public infrastructure improvements, subject to a cap and other restrictions.

City will provide impact fee offsets, consistent with City Code, for previous development on the property. 

Project entitlement (zoning, design review, permitting) will follow a customized review schedule, which will be overseen by a Development Services Department Project Manager assigned to the project.  
The City will initiate a rezoning case consistent with the provisions of the adopted Form-Based Code, if needed.
   
Other Deal Points 
Developer is provided rights to redevelop parking within the new structured parking garage to commercial/residential use, as demand for parking decreases, provided the minimum number of City spaces are maintained. 
The City Parking Spaces in garage will be subject to the exclusive control of the City.
City will retain all revenue generated from City Parking spaces. 
City is not obligated to provide any type of security for the garage. 
Developer will use all City utilities (Electric, Gas, Sewer, Water, Solid Waste). 
