Downtown Villieu was once a flourishing business district, but most Villieu-area businesses are now located only in the suburbs. The office buildings downtown lack the modern amenities most business operators demand today. To lure more businesses downtown, Villieu officials plan to have several modern office buildings constructed and to offer reduced local tax rates to any business that leases space in a new downtown building.
Which of the following, if true, most threatens the plan's likelihood of success?
(A) Most of the businesses currently located in downtown Villieu have long-term leases on the space they occupy there. - We are concerned about the business located in suburbs & not in Downtown. Incorrect.
(B) The existing office buildings in downtown Villieu have, on average, a much higher vacancy rate than do office buildings in Villieu's suburbs. - Vacancy rate is higher NOW but we dont have any idea about the vacancy rate for new buildings. Incorrect.
(C) The local tax rates in Villieu's suburbs are significantly lower than downtown Villieu's proposed rate for businesses that lease space in the new office buildings. - CORRECT. Officials plans to attract new business by offering lower tax rates but the tax rates in suburbs are already lower than the proposed tax rates. Because businesses have no incentive, so they wont come to downtown. CORRECT
(D) Most of the businesses that currently lease office space in downtown Villieu also lease office space in Villieu's suburbs. - OFS. Incorrect
(E) With the new office buildings, downtown Villieu would have a greater amount of modern office space than any other downtown business district in the region. - Will the bew buildings fulfill the requirement of businesses we dont know. Thus incorrect.
