Tell us the true rental: it's not rocket science
BENDIGO ALLIANCE HAS BEEN CONTACTED BY AN ANGRY BENDIGO BUSINESSMAN
HIS ANALYSIS OF RENTAL COUNCIL WILL PAY IS SIMPLE
Council and Government says GovHub is a $90 million project
Allow another 5% for overruns $4.5 million = $94,500,000
Development Victoria makes 5% profit = $99,225,000
Let’s say an Investor pays $100 million
Commercial rent in Bendigo is say 6 to 8% of investment
Conservative return at 6% equals $6 million rent per annum
Council is taking 400 desks in 1000 desk building
Means 40% share of desks 40% of $6 million Equals $2.4 million RENT plus outgoings per annum
EQUATES to $48 million RENT of our money over 20 YEARS
This rent is forever if they agree to sell our land and buildings.
Bendigo Alliance comment: Thanks to our follower, this is not rocket science as some at council would want you to believe. Before next Wednesday’s meeting Council must inform the community of the true rental.
