A 13-story, 114-room boutique hotel in St. Petersburg’s Edge district may go ahead with development, despite concerns from nearby business owners about potential parking issues.

City Council unanimously approved the project at its Nov. 10 meeting as a community redevelopment agency, saying the purpose and aesthetic of the hotel at 1111 Central Ave. correspond to the city’s redevelopment plan for the area.

Edge District Business Association leaders agreed. But they took issue with a proposed valet parking lot just west of the hotel, which they said could clog traffic along that stretch of Central.

“This is a key area of ​​our district, just off the roundabout, where traffic is already congested,” said board chairman Sean Mulligan. “Having a valet lot on site requiring entry/exit on Balm or Central Avenues will cause traffic issues for the rest of the neighborhood’s residents and business owners.”

Board member and former chairman of the city council, Leslie Curran, said promoters Eastman Equity Holding had agreed to a 10-year commitment for off-site valet parking – “and then at the last minute, really, they denied.”

Eastman partner David Moore says the investors behind the $26 million hotel are balking at that 10-year window, especially since no cars will be parked there until 2024 as soon as possible. To move forward, the project needed a parking plan that met city code requirements, and the on-site valet lot accomplishes that.

“We will get off-site parking agreements in the future,” he said. “I didn’t come back to the Edge district with the slightest ill will to do anything wrong, but it’s really not a good business decision at this time.”

Valet parking at the hotel would be handled by Evolution Parking and Guest Services, a Tampa-based company that specializes in hotel valet parking. Jack Kane, the group’s director of business development and client solutions, said that kind of traffic would be minimal, perhaps a few dozen a day.

“I understand this may seem like a really difficult logistical issue,” Kane said. “But we routinely park over 200 cars a day at Hilton Tampa Downtown, Hyatt Place Hyatt House Downtown and across the country, parking in densely urban areas with 300, 400 hotel rooms, much smaller areas and much more challenging off-site scenarios.”

The hotel is set to rise on the site of a green space next to the Intermezzo cafe and cocktail lounge, with the adjacent Baum Avenue market building turned into a restaurant space. It would have a public garden at street level and a walkway connecting Baum and Central Avenues.

Curran said Wednesday that the Edge District Business Association has not yet scheduled a meeting with developers to discuss the parking issue, but is confident it will happen. The city and the association are in the early stages of developing a master plan for the Baum Avenue area, and Curran said parking at projects like this hotel will be a factor.

“I think the Edge showed that we favor development,” she said. “We just want smart developments and things that will work with residents and retailers.”

While the city’s vote of approval means the project can move forward with its existing parking plan, both parties and city officials have agreed to continue to seek a solution that works for everyone. .

“I still have some concerns, but I have some confidence in the conversations that have taken place between the District Council members and the developer and this team so far,” Driscoll said. “There’s more conversation to be had, and I hope they keep talking.”

Council decides to allow more boat parking after summer havoc https://howstrategies.com/council-decides-to-allow-more-boat-parking-after-summer-havoc/ Wed, 23 Nov 2022 03:04:00 +0000 https://howstrategies.com/council-decides-to-allow-more-boat-parking-after-summer-havoc/
A parking shortage in Picton over the Christmas and New Year period forced the council to go back to the drawing board for its reserve plan.

Things

A parking shortage in Picton over the Christmas and New Year period forced the council to go back to the drawing board for its reserve plan.

Marlborough Council decided to allow extra parking space for boats trying to launch out of Picton, but some councilors questioned whether that would even be enough.

The shortage of parking spaces caused havoc over the past Christmas and New Year period, which forced the police, Port Marlborough and Marlborough District Council to respond to the problem.

The influx of boats caused a constant traffic jam and water congestion as people had to moor their boats while someone searched for a park. Others also parked above residential driveways.

Part of the problem was caused after the Victoria Estate Reserves Management Plan, adopted in June 2021, banned vehicles on grassy open spaces unless otherwise agreed for things such as maintenance activities or events .

THINGS

Owning a boat in New Zealand was part of the Kiwi dream, but others end up in landfill after their owners abandon them.

* Boat trailers causing summer havoc around a busy marina in Picton
* Council waives free parking fines after muddy meter message
* “First hour free” parking offered for Blenheim town center

This therefore reduced the number of parking spaces available because boaters could not park on Memorial Park in Picton, next to the marina.

This meant the council agreed to go back to the drawing board and revisit the plan a year after it was adopted with a proposal to provide more space and reopen Memorial Park for parking during peak periods.

A hearing panel, made up of Marlborough Mayor Nadine Taylor, who was then deputy mayor, and former councilors Cynthia Brooks and Michael Fitzpatrick, met again to hear submissions on the management plan in September.

A report prepared for the council’s assets and services committee last week said 40 people submitted the proposed change, six of whom spoke to them at the hearings. No one was against the proposed changes.

The influx of boaties caused a constant traffic jam and congestion in the water.

The influx of boaties caused a constant traffic jam and congestion in the water.

The report says that following the hearing, the committee also proposed that a helicopter landing site be “secured”. Bollards would be placed around a designated area to allow this.

Space would be available on the east side of Memorial Park to ensure that walking and cycling access is unobstructed, and the north side would be available for recreational users. The council’s park reservation system would be used to help administer the process.

The council’s director of community property and facilities, Jamie Lyall, told councilors at last week’s meeting that the increased acreage was tested over Easter which “worked well”.

“We got a lot of compliments from the community,” he said.

At Christmas and New Years, demand for parking in Picton far exceeded supply.

SCOTT HAMMOND/STUFF

At Christmas and New Years, demand for parking in Picton far exceeded supply.

Marlborough Sounds ward councilor Ben Minehan said he was successful in securing the last park in Picton over Christmas.

“I’ve never seen Picton Marina so full,” Minehan said.

“I’m a little afraid that it doesn’t go far enough.

Similarly, Marlborough Sounds ward councilor Barbara Faulls said that while the move was positive, she was concerned that they still did not have enough reserved parking spaces for the Christmas period.

Lyall said the hearing panel interviewed Port Marlborough “in detail” about it.

He said their response was that they were ‘reasonably comfortable’ they could meet 97 per cent of parking demand.

“What they need to do is work in tandem with Waikawa Marina,” he said.

He said there was also a lot of work going on to figure out how long people were queuing while waiting to get in and out of the water.

DUBLIN–()–The “Opportunities for Technology Innovation and Growth of Facilities Management (FM) in Southeast Asia” report has been added to from ResearchAndMarkets.com offer.

This study analyzes the Southeast Asian FM market; it pays attention to FM and Smart FM technologies and covers market growth drivers and restraints, forecasts, trends, and competitive landscape. The study also provides a regional perspective and offers profiles of FM leaders and innovators in the region, with 2022 as the base year. The research service also identifies the top 3 growth opportunities.

The facilities management (FM) market in Southeast Asia (SEA) is growing, supported by strong construction and renovation activity in the region due to rapid urbanization and building expansion smart.

Adoption of advanced technologies in construction services is also growing rapidly. Additionally, government regulations on energy efficiency and energy performance are pushing businesses to adopt smart and innovative technologies to achieve their energy goals. The regulatory framework for SEA is evolving, and coupled with the growing awareness of the benefits of smart FM among building services players, the industry as a whole is moving towards high-tech adoption.

However, the perceived high costs or investments associated with technology implementation by customers and FM participants hinder the adoption of innovative technologies in building services. Additionally, the lack of qualified experts who can facilitate smart FM services is holding back the advancement of FM in SEA. Growth is also hampered by cybersecurity issues, which are preventing the adoption of smart FM.

Country-to-country outsourcing rates vary widely depending on market maturity and end-user profiles. Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, the market was witnessing high growth in outsourcing owing to the large penetrable asset base and continuous construction activities, especially in developing economies.

SEA favors unique services. Basic soft and hard FM services, such as cleaning, security and M&E services, are the most requested by end users. However, due to price sensitivity, FM service providers are less willing to introduce technology-driven solutions. Additionally, intense price competition is common as market players strive to retain customers.

Market players should also be prepared to help large, mature companies or end users who are inclined to adopt sustainable practices (e.g. energy efficiency) in their business operations. This trend will drive FM service providers to upgrade their services to become technology-oriented enterprises.

The Story of Dealer Acquisition Continues

Last year, Automotive News for the first time rigorously documented new vehicle dealer transactions, or what is commonly referred to in the industry as buy-sell.

As fate would have it, 2021 was arguably the biggest year for dealer acquisitions in history. But tracking last year’s data wasn’t a one-time thing.

Throughout 2022, Automotive News continued to collect data submitted by dealers, buy-sell brokers and others and we sought details of other transactions found in company regulatory documents, local news reports and postings on social networks.

All of which brings us to Monday’s paper.

On page 1, you’ll find another data-rich story focused on buy-sell activity for the first half of 2022.

The big takeaway?

Private groups – not publicly traded auto retailers – were collectively the most active buyers. And they often only bought one or two dealers at a time.

To be sure, some of the top six state-owned auto retailers bought dealerships in the first half of 2022, like Lithia Motors Inc.

But the number of stores that audiences acquired and how much they spent on acquisitions fell in the first half of 2022 compared to the year-ago period. You’ll find a separate, audience-focused buy-sell story in our Done Deals section on page 8 of this issue.

Automotive News can now tell the story of buy-sell activity in the first half of 2022 in more detail, as was the case for 2021. Expect this to continue for the rest of 2022.

Stay tuned.

WestWorld costs much more than expected | City News https://howstrategies.com/westworld-costs-much-more-than-expected-city-news/ Sun, 20 Nov 2022 07:00:00 +0000 https://howstrategies.com/westworld-costs-much-more-than-expected-city-news/

Scottsdale’s beloved WestWorld event center costs taxpayers millions of dollars a year to operate.

These were the conclusions of an audit of the establishment communicated to the audit committee of the council on November 14.

The 386-acre equestrian and special-events facility in the northeast corner of town is operated by the City of Scottsdale on federal land under an agreement with the Bureau of Reclamation.

It hosts a number of events that draw large crowds, including the All-Arabian Horse Show, Barrett-Jackson Auto Auction, and Parada del Sol Rodeo.

The audit found that the way facilities management has kept its books in the past, it seemed like WestWorld was making money most years – although the 2019-20 financial year showed a loss of $257,100 .

However, WestWorld’s accounting practices did not account for some direct expenses such as certain overhead costs and asset depreciation, the audit said.

When this is taken into account, WestWorld is expected to fall short of operating expenses by approximately $5.6 million this fiscal year. This shortfall will be covered by the city’s general fund.

There’s no way to know how much the facility lost in previous years because staff didn’t track those expenses, City Auditor Sharron Walker said.

The main culprit? WestWorld’s fees are too low, according to the report.

“We recognize that we want these events and all the economic impact they have,” said councilor Solange Whitehead, who sits on the audit committee. “Yet we are Scottsdale. We can charge the market rate. We are worth it. It’s such a wonderful facility.

The fact that WestWorld isn’t a source of revenue didn’t surprise adviser Kathy Littlefield, who chairs the audit committee.

“It’s been a long time since WestWorld had an audit,” she said.

An ideal situation doesn’t include WestWorld making money, she said. Ideally, Littlefield would like to see it break even.

The real money to be made is in all the tourism the facility brings to the city, she said. It attracts thousands of people who stay at local hotels, eat at local restaurants, shop at local stores, and find other ways to part with their cash in town.

“It’s a huge money maker because it brings in some really rich people,” Littlefield said. “You don’t have a chain of Arabian horses and you take care of them, feed them and travel to show them off if you don’t have a lot of money.”

The report reached four major conclusions. They are:

• Individual equestrian events are charged less for the use of WestWorld facilities than other events despite using 140% more facilities on average than other event types. They also require almost 174% more man-hours from WestWorld staff.

• Detailed service fees complicate the operation and billing process. In addition to facility fees, WestWorld has specific rates and fees for individual services, such as portable kiosks, internet connections, light towers, microphones, telephones, and bleachers. Some fees require more follow-up and operational work than others.

• Westworld’s daily RV rates require further analysis to ensure they are based on cost recovery and market comparisons. The WestWorld RV parking rate is $35 per day.

It’s less expensive than virtually any other comparable trailer park in the area. For example, Desert Shadows RV Resort in Phoenix charges around $72 per day and Pleasant Harbor RV Park in Peoria charges around $66 per day.

• When proposing its rates and fees for the current fiscal year, WestWorld management stated on budget forms that the recommended fees would cover 94% of its operating costs.

However, the underlying rate analysis only included direct budgeted costs and did not incorporate city overhead, depreciation or amortization of equipment and facilities.

Some capital improvement projects represented major city investments, such as the expansion, closure, and climate control of the Tony Nelssen Equestrian Center.

The committee asked for an update on the situation once the recommendations of the report have been implemented.

These recommendations are:

• Develop a sliding scale to discount facility rates based on the amount of other related guaranteed revenues and prepare and maintain analytics that support the additional discounts provided.

• Evaluate ways to include routine event services in facility rates, such as telephone and internet or require guaranteed minimums, such as stall count, to streamline operational and billing processes.

• Conduct further analysis of RV pricing, including other event facilities and the local market. Additionally, consider whether RV fees are required to accommodate no-shows and large-scale clean-up activities.

• Use full cost calculations when developing facility rates and charges. These full cost rates must then be assessed against competitive market rate limits before recommending rates and charges for approval by the city council.

Saudi Deputy Foreign Minister meets Finnish Minister in Bahrain https://howstrategies.com/saudi-deputy-foreign-minister-meets-finnish-minister-in-bahrain/ Sat, 19 Nov 2022 20:17:07 +0000 https://howstrategies.com/saudi-deputy-foreign-minister-meets-finnish-minister-in-bahrain/

Hihome travel site aims to provide tourists with the authentic Saudi cultural experience

MAKKAH: What better way for tourists to experience the real authentic culture of the country they are visiting than by spending time with the locals, ideally in their homes, and participating in their daily traditional activities.

Hihome, an online platform created in 2019, aims to make this possible for visitors to Saudi Arabia, bridging the gap between tourists and locals. In addition to providing accommodation, hosts can also provide traditional activities for guests to experience and learn about local culture and heritage first hand.

These can include brewing traditional Saudi coffee, making one of the host’s special family recipes, crafting lessons, picking fruit from a farm or just spending time together listening to the stories. of a host on life in the Kingdom.

Established in 2019, Hihome, an electronic platform, bridges tourists and locals, experiencing authentic Saudi culture by visiting locals’ homes in different regions of the Kingdom. (Supplied)

Noura Al-Saadoun, founder and managing director of Hihome, told Arab News that the philosophy of the service is based on the principle of investing in the Saudi people and their homes, as they provide an excellent entry point for visitors to learn more about the culture of the country and the wider region, and engage with its people.

She said the idea came to her after visiting several foreign countries that have similar platforms and seeing that the experiences they offer make a good impression on travelers. So when the Kingdom announced in 2019 that it was offering tourist visas for the first time, Al-Saadoun realized it was the perfect opportunity to launch a service that could introduce visitors to the beauty and diversity of the Kingdom by offering them an authentic Saudi experience. in the home of a local family.

She said there are currently more than 500 registered guests and hosts on the platform, and more than 80 registered experiences that have generated “wonderful feedback” from guests.

“What confirms this are the messages they send to us, which contain their photos and their opinions on the experience, and we are proud to publish these comments on our website to show how happy we are to provide them. welcome to one of our Hihome experiences,” says Al-Saadoun.

In his review, Stefaniic, a German tourist, said: “I thought I had been around the world, and I’ve been everywhere, but I haven’t been to Saudi Arabia. This is the first family home I have visited in this country, and I tell you what… I love it. People are so friendly, so kind. They are so generous. You must come here.

Another Hihome user, Mia from China, described her experience as “memorable days that cannot be forgotten”. She added that it was very interesting to visit a house in Riyadh, see all its decorations, designs and open spaces, and talk to the nice people there.

“The most beautiful thing is that communications between guests and hosts do not end with the experience…on the contrary, friendships are formed between them, through which an exchange of knowledge about different cultures takes place between the two parts,” she added.

The registration process is simple, Al-Saadoun said; hosts simply create a listing on the Hihome website that includes a description and photos of the experience and space, as well as the price.

The site team reviews all the listings and suggests any changes that might be needed, then it goes live. The site also offers hosting providers support and advice to help them develop and market their experiences.

“We were honored to welcome people from several countries, such as Germany, Japan, America, Saudi Arabia, Mexico, India, Egypt, South Africa, Australia, Canada, Ukraine, Scotland, Singapore and Brazil, among others,” said Al-dit Saadoun.

Facilities management giant raises guidance after acquisition-driven period https://howstrategies.com/facilities-management-giant-raises-guidance-after-acquisition-driven-period/ Thu, 17 Nov 2022 08:09:22 +0000 https://howstrategies.com/facilities-management-giant-raises-guidance-after-acquisition-driven-period/



A facilities management giant operating in the South West has raised its full-year guidance on the basis of a strong half-year, with new contracts, acquisitions and awards having “more than replaced” the increase in revenue short-term Covid-related contracts from the prior period.

For the six months to September 30, 2022, Mitie Group reported revenue of £1.874 billion compared to £1.872 billion in the same period the previous year.

Including the share of joint ventures and associates, the figure fell from £1.91 billion to £1.92 billion.

Elsewhere, total pre-tax profit fell from £49.2m to £43.1m, while operating profit fell from £59.2m to £50.5m.

Despite this, the employer of 68,000 remained optimistic about its “encouraging business momentum”, with the group also raising its operating profit forecast for the full year.

It is now expected to be at least £145million.

Group chief executive Phil Bentley noted that the company’s strong performance in the first six months of the year “reflects good underlying momentum across all divisions”.

“New contract wins, recent acquisitions and pricing more than replaced the increase in short-term revenue from Covid-related contracts in the first half of last year,” he said.

“Our strategy is delivering underlying revenue growth and cost savings through our margin improvement initiatives, while inflationary pressures are carefully managed.”

In the first six months of the year, Mitie has also invested £19m in three businesses and continues to “see opportunities to invest in future growth through ‘complementary’ acquisitions”.

“While inflationary pressures will continue in the second half, historically our second half performance is stronger, with increased project revenue, seasonal winter work and the ramping up of margin improvement economies in throughout the year,” added Bentley.

“We therefore expect to generate operating profit before other items of at least £145m for FY23.”

Fannie Mae launches new single-family social disclosures https://howstrategies.com/fannie-mae-launches-new-single-family-social-disclosures/ Wed, 16 Nov 2022 17:10:00 +0000 https://howstrategies.com/fannie-mae-launches-new-single-family-social-disclosures/

New disclosures to provide insight into social purpose lending activities

WASHINGTON, November 16, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Fannie Mae (OTCQB: FNMA) today launched new social insights, the Social Criteria Share (SCS) and Social Density Score (SDS), for its single-family mortgage-backed securities (MBS) . The new disclosures are designed to meet the investor comments and aim to provide single-family MBS investors with insight into social purpose lending activities while helping to maintain the privacy of mortgage consumers’ personal information.

With today’s release, Fannie Mae is providing the market with SCS and SDS, assigned on issuance, for active and inactive MBS pools issued between January 2010 and October 2022. Fannie Mae intends to start posting these attributes for new single-family MBS shows on December 2, 2022.

To further assist market participants in their historical analysis, Fannie Mae also provides a chart containing common visualizations of prepayment performance.

“We are excited to release the new social disclosures after receiving positive feedback on the proposal over the past few months,” said Devang Doshi, Senior Vice President of Capital Markets for Single Family Families at Fannie Mae. “This is a significant step forward in terms of providing information to market participants while striving to protect the privacy of borrowers, and we remain committed to continuing our engagement with the investment community to new developments in socially responsible investing.”

While this pool-level information can help investors determine which pools may meet their social investment criteria, we do not qualify any single-family social bond pool. Fannie Mae will consider feedback from investors, independent opinion providers and other market participants in determining how to approach a potential labeled issue.

Information on methodology and disclosures can be found at Fannie Mae’s website.
