Title

Approving an Amendment to the Option to Purchase Agreement between the City and Hoepker Center, LLC.

Body

WHEREAS, on December 16, 2016 a Purchase and Sale Agreement (“PSA”) was executed between the City of Madison and Hoepker Center, LLC, an affiliate of St. John Properties Acquisitions, LLC (“Hoepker”), in part to provide an option to purchase Lots 35-37 and parts of Lots 38, 47, 48, 49, 50 and the entire width of the public street right-of-way known as Graaskamp Way discontinued and vacated on the eastern side of said lots (“Option to Purchase”), located within The Center for Industry & Commerce. This PSA was approved on September 20, 2016 by the Common Council via Resolution Enactment No. RES-16-00714, File No. 44296; and on December 6, 2016 for amendment thereto via File No. 45292; and

 

WHEREAS, a certified survey map (“CSM”) defined the property for the Option to Purchase as Lot 2 (“Property”) and was recorded with the Dane County Register of Deeds as certified survey map no. 14573, document no. 5346632, volume 100 pages 312-320; and

 

WHEREAS, Hoepker and City executed the Option to Purchase of Lot 2 on August 4, 2017, and the First Amendment to the Option to Purchase on December 7, 2017; and

 

WHEREAS, Motion W Industrial, LLC (“Motion”) has requested to purchase a portion of Lot 2 that is currently under the Option to Purchase; and

 

WHEREAS, Hoepker is willing to amend the Option to Purchase at no cost to Hoepker to remove the portion of Lot 2 totaling 22, 630 s.f. (“Sale Property”) so that Motion can purchase it; and

 

WHEREAS, a companion resolution is being introduced today to the Common Council to approve the acquisition of the Sale Property by Motion.

 

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED that the Option to Purchase is hereby amended as follows, and described in the Second Amendment to the Option to Purchase Agreement:
