Abadan, Samadpour to waive rents for hard-hit Bay Street businesses

Nearly a dozen restaurants are offering takeout and curbside pickup service

PORT ORCHARD — Abadan Holdings, Bay Street’s dominant retail building owner, has told businesses in its commercial buildings that it will waive at least one month’s rent in consideration of the tumultuous social climate created by mandated COVID-19 coronavirus restrictions.

Abadan — owned by Seattle scientist and business owner Mansour Samadpour — manages commercial business properties he owns in Port Orchard, mainly along the city’s main downtown street. Those properties owned by Abadan and Samadpour dominate much of the downtown shopping area. The holding company’s list of tenants includes Josephine’s Mercantile, Coffee Oasis, Carter and Co. Chocolates and Bakery, and the Dance Gallery.

This message was sent to Abadan Holdings tenants on Monday by Matt Berg, managing commercial broker with Reid Property Management LLC:

Dear Abadan Holdings Tenants:

During this difficult time, Abadan Holdings understands your financial hardship. To provide some relief, Abadan is waiving your April 2020 rent.

Abadan Holdings and Reid Property Management wishes for everyone to stay safe.

While restaurants statewide have been ordered by Gov. Jay Inslee to close their doors to walk-in customers, at least 22 establishments in Port Orchard and South Kitsap have, or are making, arrangements to offer meal takeout and curbside pickup.

The following establishments have indicated they plan to participate in the service:

Blue Agave Mexican Grill; Blue Ocean Crab & Fish & Pho; Brick House 714 Bar and Grill; Carbon Mexican Steakhouse (takeout only); Carter’s Bay Street; Coffee Oasis; Crescent Moon (Port Orchard deliveries only); Farmer Rosie’s Cafe; Grey House; La Palapa; Leanna’s Art & Coffee; Manchester Grill; Masa Pizza; Minas Cafe; Minder Meats’ Puerto Vallarta; Ruby Slipper; Seabeck Pizza; Sue’s Fresh Juice Bar and Sandwich Shop; That One Place; The Dock Bar & Eatery; and Uncle Dave’s Cafe.
