SA’s Largest Developer Suspends Rent For Business Tenants And Calls On Others To Follow Suit

In response to the economic impact of COVID-19, Commercial & General are suspending rent for three months for small business tenants in their developments.

Yesterday, Jamie McClurg, the Executive Chairman of Commercial & General, announced that they would be suspending rent for their business tenants for the next 3 months. He then urged anyone in a position to help a small business, to do so.

Here’s what McClurg shared on LinkedIn:

As the State’s largest developer, I believe we have a responsibility not only to drive business investment in South Australia but also to support it.

And now more than ever, small business in SA needs our support. 

In response to the economic impact of COVID-19, we’re suspending rent for three months for small business tenants in Commercial & General developments.

I completely support the measures being implemented by the Federal and State governments. It’s at times of crisis that we need leaders to stand up and set the example, and I believe Australia and South Australia is well placed to endure the challenge. 

But business is hurting because of the economic shutdown happening around the coronavirus. 

In particular, restaurants, cafes and hospitality businesses have all become innocent victims and we haven’t yet reached the worst of it.

They need us to back them to make sure they’re still here when we get through this. It’s going to take a collective effort to make it happen and it starts with all of us as individuals.

That’s why we’ve taken the decision to suspend rent for three months for small business tenants in our developments. 

We can do something to help alleviate stress for small business. Now we need other landlords to follow suit and #suspendtherent

If you’re in a position to help a small business, I urge you to do so.
