Coronavirus Updates


April 8 — Access to 1123

Dear Tenants,

As you are aware we have kept the buildings open and fully functional during the current coronavirus crisis, including keeping the lobbies of both buildings open.  However, due to the very limited use of the buildings during the crisis and to further limit the chance of infection among security staff members, we have decided to close the lobby of 1123 Broadway beginning at 5:30 p.m. this evening (Wednesday, April 8th).

As is the case on holidays and weekends, all access to 1123 Broadway will be through the lobby of 1133 Broadway.  The buildings will otherwise continue to remain open and functioning.

We again hope that all tenants, their loved ones and friends remain health during this difficult time, and we look forward to the time when we will all be together again.  While the times are preventing us all from celebrating the usual rites of spring, we want to wish all the hope and happiness symbolized by Passover and Easter.

March 27 — A Letter from Leslie Spira Lopez

Dear Tenants,

Each of you as a business owner knows the tremendous demands we are all facing under the current health emergency. Here at Kew we have been working to keep the buildings open and safe for anyone who must access their offices, and our staff has been completely converted to work from home and all operations are running much as they would were our offices open.

Once the basic functions were put in place, we turned to looking for ways to reduce the stress you, indeed we all, are experiencing under the current economic pressures. As you, we are facing unprecedented challenges and still must meet our responsibilities to the city, state and federal government, utilities, lenders, suppliers and staff. I wanted to share with you some steps we feel confident that we can take now. We will be revisiting these policies as the situation develops.

  • Kew has suspended all legal actions relating to outstanding rent payments for current tenants.
  • We encourage you to pay your rent on time. However, Kew will not be adding late charges to your accounts for April. We will notify you going forward if we are able to extend this consideration.
  • Kew will be deferring any rent increases. Please contact us if you are affected by this.
  • We are waiving all rent inclusion electric charges (not billed by Con Ed) and unmetered water charges. We are waiving all Business Center Mail receiving monthly charges.

Tenants have different needs from those in sectors completely shut down at this time to those that can still operate virtually. A complete single solution doesn’t work for everyone, but we are willing to work with individual businesses to find ways of helping them remain viable and successful. We are developing a procedure to review specific requests; please give us time over the next 30 days to implement and begin this review process. We will continue to keep you updated as the situation progresses and as resources are made available and I hope that you are able to do the same.

I ask for your continued patience and understanding as we remain focused on the real-time challenges that COVID-19 is presenting to our communities, employees, and company, and that all of us will find creative ways to keep moving ahead with our personal and business lives.

I, and the entire Kew staff, sincerely wish that all of you, your friends, and your loved ones remain well during this trying time.

Sincerely,

Leslie Spira Lopez
CEO and President
Kew Management

March 21 – 1123 and 1133 Broadway

Earlier today, the Governor of New York issued a “stay at home” rule, effective Sunday, that restricts movement outside except for activities related to essentials such as food, prescriptions, health care and commuting to jobs considered crucial.  100% of nonessential workforce must stay home. 

Pursuant to that order, our buildings will be opened but working with reduced staff.   Management has determined that the following operations will be followed for the foreseeable future:

Security Services
1133 Broadway — 24/7.
1123 Broadway — 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., Monday through Friday.
Weekend access will be through 1133 Broadway as usual.

Building Services
Will be on limited basis.

Of course, we will be monitoring the building for safety, as possible.

We ask that anyone using the building please be mindful of the high contagion rate with this disease and wipe any surfaces you touch.  Try to sanitize them after use, particularly the front door handles, elevator buttons, bathroom door handles, faucets, etc. and any other public surfaces.

Thank you for your cooperation.  Should you need assistance, please call our emergency number: (844) 539-6468 (844-KEWMGMT)

We will continue posting information on kewmanagement.com and specifically on this page dedicated to the coronavirus situation (kewmanagement.com/coronavirus-updates/).

 


March 20 – 11 West 25th Street, 255 Fifth Avenue, 227 West 29th Street

A short time ago, the Governor of New York issued a “stay at home” rule, effective Sunday, that restricts movement outside except for activities related to essentials such as food, prescriptions, health care and commuting to jobs considered crucial.

Pursuant to that order, our building staff will not be allowed to come to work starting Monday, March 23rd.  The building will be open should you deem entry necessary, and of course, we will be monitoring the building for safety as possible.

We ask that anyone using the building please be mindful of the high contagion rate with this disease and wipe any surfaces you touch.  Try to sanitize them after use, particularly the front door handles, elevator buttons, and any other public surfaces.

Thank you for your cooperation.  Should you need assistance, please call our emergency number: (844) 539-6468 (844-KEWMGMT)

March 18 – New York Buildings

These are difficult times for all of us, and we understand from our own experience over the past few weeks, that your businesses are being interrupted by the slowdown of activity and reductions in your workforce, as well as mandatory shutdowns in certain industries.

Kew is here to help you and your staff, as much as we are able as we are all in this together. The situation is changing almost hourly, but we are we are constantly monitoring developments to determine what is the best course of action to provide needed services and maintain everyone’s health, the latter being our primary goal as it is for the nation.

The buildings will remain open and your office accessible if and until the government mandates closure.  We have closed our physical office, but we are all working as normal and are available by e-mail and phone just as though we were on-site.  Our building staff is on duty; if cuts in staff are required, we will advise you in advance.

Business Center

The Business Center is currently open, but will close at the end of the business day Thursday, March19th.  Only services related to Mail Receiving will be available until then; all other services have been discontinued.

We want to make sure tenants have what they need so as we noted the other day, please pick up any packages that you have been told are in the Business Center before closure on Thursday.  If they are not picked up, we will be unable to make them available until the present crisis has subsided.  There will be no one to receive packages nor space to store them after the closure on the Center on Thursday, so please have any deliveries that may be in process rerouted, cancelled or postponed.

Financial Concerns

We know that in these stressful times, in addition to staying healthy ourselves and preventing the spread of this virus, finances are on everyone’s mind.  We at Kew are discussing actions we might be able to take to help tenants through the current business downturn and we will be advising you of these ameliorating steps as soon as we determine our own financial position and develop precise policies.  We ask you to be patient as this may take a few days especially as we all face an unknown future and each situation may be different.

In the meantime, we will update you with financial assistance news as possible.

Inquire About Insurance Coverage

We suggest that you begin to contact your insurance carriers and determine how you may be covered, especially if you have business interruption insurance.  Begin processing claims right away to ensure early resolution and to avoid the flood of claims that may be entered in the next few weeks.

City, State and Federal Assistance Being Planned

We are also looking at assistance from the city, state and federal governments.  Steps are being discussed, but as you are aware, these are complicated budgeting and policy matters and will take time for governmental agencies to finalize.   We will pass along all information we can find about relief for our tenants.

City Assistance Available Now

The City has announced that it will provide relief for small businesses across the City seeing a reduction in revenue because of COVID-19. Businesses with fewer than 100 employees who have seen sales decreases of 25% or more will be eligible for zero interest loans of up to $75,000 to help mitigate losses in profit.

The City is also offering small businesses with fewer than 5 employees a grant to cover 40% of payroll costs for two months (an average of $6,000) to help retain employees. Eligible owners who would like to learn more about these programs should call 311 for assistance.*

*This is the main New York Help Hotline, but operators will route your call to the appropriate agency.

We hope all tenants will stay healthy, and we remain committed to serving you and helping you work through this challenge.

 


March 17 – New York Buildings

Review and Follow the Simple Precautions in our First Memo (See below)

Remember that taking precautions during this health emergency is not only about keeping yourself healthy but preventing illness from spreading to your neighbors, particularly those in higher risk groups such as the old and those with chronic medical conditions. Perhaps the best way to think about it is acting as though you might be infected and acting to prevent those around you from catching the virus.

If a Building Tenant Gets Sick

Medical authorities are strongly urging all persons who exhibit symptoms to stay home and avoid public spaces until the illness has passed (“Self-quarantine”).

If a tenant Returns from Travel to a “High-Risk” Country

The CDC has designated numerous countries as Level 3 “high-risk” areas. This list may change, please check the CDC website. Persons traveling from those countries are being separated at airports and screened for symptoms for the virus. Asymptomatic travels are being allowed to continue to their destination, but are being urged in the strongest terms to “self-monitoring,” which means remaining isolated for at least 14 days, while taking your temperature and checking for other symptoms of Coronavirus. The CDC states on its website “Stay home for 14 days from the time you left any areas with widespread, ongoing community spread (Level 3 Travel Health Notice countries) and practice social distancing.” A tenant who is “self-monitoring” should follow the same procedures as we recommend for residents who are actually ill. At present, the CDC does not require family members of tenants who are self-monitoring to also quarantine themselves.

In case of Staff Shortages

The building may experience temporary staff shortages because employees get sick or are required to remain at home. Some activities may have to be cancelled or postponed until staffing levels recover and situations are better controlled as indicated by the CDC and other experts. We ask all tenants for their understanding and cooperation at this difficult time.

Your Cooperation is Vital

Thank you all for your anticipated cooperation during this period of uncertainty. Our recommended procedures may change as the medical establishment learns more about how Coronavirus operates. In the meantime, please be assured that management and staff will seek to implement the best practices recommended by the medical community so as to protect the residents of the building.

The Kew Management Office is Open

The Kew Management Office is open and will remain opened to answer questions and respond to your needs. Work Hours: 212.255.3346. Evenings and Weekends: 844-539-6468 (844-KEWMGMT).

The Kew Management Business Center is Open

Currently the Business Center will remain open, however, we have decided to close down the conference rooms to avoid group meetings that may increase the chance of infection.

Regarding DELIVERIES:

The Business Center will continue to receive mail and packages, but due to the number of tenants that are not coming to pick up their deliveries we may be forced to refuse deliveries in the near future.

To avoid this eventuality:

  1. If you have been advised that you have a delivery in the Business Center, please pick it up immediately.  In case the complete closure of the Business Center is required as the virus situation develops, we want to make sure you have the packages you need.
  2. Please suspend ordering anything that is not absolutely necessary or have orders rerouted to your homes.
  3. All subscription orders, such as water cooler bottles, Amazon shipments, etc should be cancelled, suspended, or rerouted.
  4. If it is absolutely necessary to receive a large shipment, please alert the Business Center beforehand so we can let you know if we can accommodate it or not.
Temporary Business Hours:

9 a.m. to 5 p.m. until further notice.

If you have any questions lease direct them to

March 17 – Cloister Tenants

Review and Follow the Simple Precautions in our First Memo (See below)

Remember that taking precautions during this health emergency is not only about keeping yourself healthy but preventing illness from spreading to your neighbors, particularly those in higher risk groups such as the old and those with chronic medical conditions. Perhaps the best way to think about it is acting as though you might be infected and acting to prevent those around you from catching the virus.

In addition to our earlier recommendations, we would ask that people using the laundry room be diligent about cleaning machines after you use them, sanitizing all knobs, handles and surfaces, including the door handles both in and out of the laundry room.

If a Building Tenant Gets Sick

Medical authorities are strongly urging all persons who exhibit symptoms to stay home and avoid public spaces until the illness has passed (“Self-quarantine”) This means remaining in your unit until you are well. If a resident needs to visit a doctor, please call the healthcare provider first so they can prepare for your visit. Avoid opening doors with your hands.

If a tenant Returns from Travel to a “High-Risk” Country

The CDC has designated numerous countries as Level 3 “high-risk” areas. This list may change, please check the CDC website.

March 4 – All Tenants

COVID-19 Advisory

We hope all of our tenants will stay well and that the worst of the current coronavirus will not be felt in our area.  Nevertheless, as there is yet to be a cure for COVID-19, precaution is our best way to combat this illness.

The virus can live for up to nine days on a surface, so transmission by hand is a high risk.  For our part, we will be sanitizing public door handles and elevators on a significantly increased, regular basis in all our buildings to increase the safety of the Kew environment.

We ask you to do your part by heeding the advice of health agencies.  We have listed below some essential tips, which you may have heard elsewhere.  We are also including some additional cautionary steps you can take during your time in our buildings.  By observing these measures, you can help to keep yourself and your fellow tenants and visitors healthy.

First

Be Aware of the Presenting Symptoms of the Coronavirus

These symptoms may occur from 2 to 14 days after exposure and include:

  • Shortness of breath
  • Fever\
  • Dry Cough

Second

The New York City Department of Health recommends that all New Yorkers practice general flu prevention measures including those below.
  • Wash your hands regularly – keep in mind that you should wash your hands with soap and warm water for at least 20 seconds (Hum “Happy Birthday” twice and that will measure out 20 seconds for you).
  • Cover your cough or sneeze into a tissue (discard immediately) or into your sleeved elbow, not your hands.
  • Avoid touching your face.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Get your flu shot — it’s never too late.
  • Most importantly, stay home if you’re feeling sick. Call your doctor and let him or her know your symptoms and travel history.

We are attaching flyers from the CDC on the Spread of Germs and a FAQ sheet addressing causes, spread, treatment of the disease, etc.

For more information, you can visit this link:
https://www1.nyc.gov/site/doh/index.page

or the website for the Center of Disease Control:
https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/index.html

Third

For our tenants, we would like to pass on these additional hints.
  • Keep an alcohol-base liquid hand sanitizer handy so you can disinfect your hands regularly.
  • When using the elevators, remember to press the button for your floor using your gloves or your knuckles to avoid contaminating your finger tips. Likewise, be conscious of touching public door knobs and other surfaces and make sure you sanitize your hands afterwards.
  • The CDC does not recommend that people who are well wear a facemask to protect themselves from respiratory illnesses, including COVID-19. You should only wear a mask if a healthcare professional recommends it. A facemask should be used by people who have COVID-19 and are showing symptoms.
  • Consider suspending the courtesy of shaking hands; people will understand.
  • When in conversation, be mindful of how close you stand to others and try to keep a six-foot distance between yourself and others.
  • Whenever possible, use conference calls, Zoom, GoToMeeting, or Skype for meetings. Stay aware of current travel advisories as they shift and change.

If we all take these simple, but necessary, steps we can continue with our schedules confident that we can meet this challenge and continue in good health.
