Explain please.

The landlord gets tax breaks for the "lost income" of an empty rental property. They take advantage of this by asking for outrageously high rents that they know nobody can afford, to get a bigger tax break and claim their property is worth more. They then use the artificially high value of the building as collatoral for bank loans to make other investments. In this way they actually make more money with an empty building than they would with tenants.

what does this have to do with maintaining a property as a leasee - the question asked?

 the leasee is paying rent.....

I trust the owner will let the board know when there is news to report on the opening.

 Here's hoping that the special Christmas Tourtiere pies will served in Jackson Heights this year. Really cannot wait.

One would think that Stew's kitchen is equipped to make the pies by now, and if so, they could be made and sold locally without the restaurant having opened. It would be a good prequel to the opening.

Stew, are you listening?
