As of March 31, 2020, we have additional operating leases that have not yet commenced with total lease payments of $233.0 million. These operating leases, which are not included on our consolidated balance sheets, have commencement dates ranging from April 2020 to June 2030 with lease terms ranging from 1 to 21 years.
In response to the impacts we are experiencing from the global COVID-19 pandemic, we have begun negotiations with certain of our landlords for deferral or abatement of fixed rent payments. These lease concessions are not expected to substantially increase our obligations under the respective lease agreements. Therefore, we have elected to account for these lease concessions as though enforceable rights and obligations for those concessions existed in our lease agreements rather than applying the lease modification guidance as clarified by the FASB.
