Hurting small biz in name of saving it: The City Council's 'Jobs Survival Act' will be bad for mom-and-pop stores and others across New York, say commercial landlords

To fill our new projects and/or replace tenants in the 15% of spaces that don’t renew, we actively court established companies as well as entrepreneurs. We believe that moms and pops, and grandparents for that matter, and even the millennial dreamers can be a part of our portfolio. Often these companies have limited financial resources or experience or both — but we work with them because we know from experience that it’s worth taking a shot on those who believe in themselves. For example, the Huffington Post was founded in our portfolio and eventually grew from a small office to over 50,000 square feet.
