A Saudi investor who claim阿爱上海同城 阿拉爱上海同城s Harry Macklowe cut him out of a joint venture to buy 432 Park Avenue’s retail space is suing the develop上海龙凤论坛sh1f 上海龙凤论坛er — again.

After failing to resolve the spat in New York State Court, Hamza Al Kholi has filed a federal suit alleging that he helped the developer line up financing to buy 432 Park’s valuable retail space, but later was pushed out of the deal and stiffed on the 2 percent equity stake he was promised. In this suit, Al Kholi seeks $9 million.

A businessman with vast holdings in the Middle East, Al Kholi previously sued Macklowe on the same grounds in New York State Supreme Court. The case went into mediation last January, but talks failed last month, according to the latest suit.

Macklowe and Qatari financial services firm QInvest closed on the deal to buy 432 Park’s retail condos for $411.1 million in June, nearly two years after entering contract with CIM Group, Macklowe’s co-developer on the supertall tower.

In the federal suit, Al Kholi claims to have contacted QInvest on behalf of Macklowe and arranged meetings for the t上海贵族宝贝 上海千花网龙凤论坛wo in early 2014. But according to the suit, Macklowe and QInvest “soon moved to exclude” Al Kholi from the deal by lowering Al Kholi’s fee to 0.5 percent of th[……]

Zachary Vichinsky, who co-founded Bespoke Real Estate with his younger brother Cody, works out of what looks like a model summer home. The luxury residential brokerage’s office in Water Mill has a modern exterior with floor-to-ceiling windows, and meticulously arranged décor awash in a palette of white, beige and gray on the interior上海龙凤论坛sh1f 上海龙凤论坛. Zachary and his brother, both alumni of the Corcoran Group on Long Island, started Bespoke in 2014. The firm lists Hamptons homes with a minimum price tag of $10 million and now exclusively represents more than $1.2 billion worth of properties, with an average listing price of $26 million, according to Zachary. It was a somewhat unlikely business for the two, who grew up in Stony Brook, Long Island, and rarely ventured 爱上海同城论坛 爱上海同城to the vacation hamlets their firm now targets. “I think I went to Hampton Bays for my prom — that was like the farthest I’d been east as a child,” said Zachary. He started a painting and finishing business after graduating from high school and began investing in single-family properties i上海龙凤论坛 新上海贵族宝贝论坛n his early 20s. Zachary, 33, now lives with his wife, Nicole, and their two-year-old daughter, Ramsey, in Bridgehampton.

NYC Multifamily Market

Did the NYC multifamily market almost die in 2017? Portfolios virtually vanished and volume steeply declined, but brokers are optimistic for a rebound in 2018

After winning an assignment last summer for an outer-borough multifamily package, Aaron Jungreis jogged his memory for potential buyers.

“You always go to that top line – the junkies,” said Jungreis, the president of Rosewood Realty Group, one of the city s most active multifamily brokerages. “And the second level are guys who are not as prone to risk.”

Then came the final tier, one that multifamily brokers increasingly turned to in the past year while the market softened significantly. “When you really can’t sell anything, you go to those who are not that reliable,” he said. “If that doesn’t work, then you’re in trouble.”

Despite some heightened broker hustling, the city s multifamily market took a punch to the mouth in 2017. Dollar volume hit $7.22 billion, its lowest level since 2011 and a 48 percent drop, according to data from Ariel Property Advisors. Deal volume, at 457 trades, was at a seven-year low. Pricing remained high and even the go-to multifamily buyers scaled back.

The Real Deal spoke to dozens of landlords and multifamily brokers over recent months about the market’s ups and downs.

“People have waited for a crash that didn’t happen.”

David Rockwell is perhaps best known for his collaborations with celebrity chefs and restaurateurs like Danny Meyer and Nobuyuki Matsuhisa, whose restaurants he’s designed around the globe. But the architect’s Manhattan-based firm, which also has offices in Shanghai and Madrid, has designed 650 restaurants, hotels, condos, stage sets and even playgrounds worldwide. About 150 of those projects are in New York. He has two dozen Broadway sets to his name, including those for blockbuster shows like “Hairspray” and “Kinky Boots,” and is currently working on “Tootsie” in Chicago. The firm also twice designed the sets for the Academy Awards, and Rockwell was the first architect to receive both a Tony and an Emmy (for set design). His eponymous firm — which he launched in 1984 and which now has 250 employees — is currently partnering with Diller Scofidio + Renfro on the Shed and Related Companies’ 15 Hudson Yards. It also recently designed the amenity spaces at 111 Murray Street, the luxe condo project developed by the Witkoff Group, Fisher Brothers and Vector Group.

Renowned New York toy store FAO Schwarz will join a revamp of the Midway Airport shopping concourse that’s on track to bring 70 new retail brands to the airport by 2020.

FAO Schwarz applied for a permit to add a store sign in the airport, according to city buildings department records. A city spokesperson confirmed the lease Monday but did not say how much space the store would take inside the city’s junior airport.

FAO Schwarz opened a 20,000-foot store earlier this year in Manhattan’s Rockefeller Plaza, nearly three years after its parent company, Toys R Us, closed the flagship location on Fifth Avenue because of rising rents.

Local 0fficials touted the first phase of Midway’s retail makeover 爱上海同城 爱上海this summer, when the airport opened a 15,000-square-foot food hall with a Billy Goat Tavern and a Big Little’s, a popular Asian-Mexican fusion restaurant based in Chicago.

The city has hired New Jersey-based Hudson Group, London-based SSP and Vancouver-based Vantage Airport Group to help phase out and replace existing shops and restaurants at Midway. The companies will aim to strike[……]

WWII Construction Boom

Mutual Alliance paves the way for banking in the LES, World War II brings construction boom, and more This month in real estate history

Cornelius Vanderbilt

1908: New Mutual Alliance building brings high finance to the LES

The Mutual Alliance Trust Company’s third office building officially opened for business in the Lower East Side 111 years ago this month, the New York Times reported. The  firm’s new outpost reportedly heralded the banking industry’s arrival in a neighborhood known more for its impoverished tenements than wealth management. The six-story building on Grand Street, designed by architect John Hamilton, cost the company $175,000 to erect. Teller services with vaults lined the marble and bronze ground floor, while safety deposit boxes were kept in the basement and offices for the staff filled the upper floors. American business magnates Cornelius Vanderbilt and William Rockefeller were among the founders of Mutual Alliance in 1902. One of the most notable details about the prominent financiers’ new venture was that their $1 million of capital would “be used on Grand Street,” according to the Times. As of June 1907, the company had nearly $7 million in assets and two branches in LES and two more in Harlem. Its headquarters remained at 66 Beaver Street, near Wall Street.

Yolanda’s Little Black Book

Yolanda, LA s real estate yenta, strikes deal with Variety parent company Ex-Compass employee James McClain sells blog to Penske Media Corp.

James McClain

It’s been a whirlwind year for James McClain, the former Compass employee and — formerly — hidden force behind celebrity real estate gossip blog, Yolanda’s Little Black Book.

Less than a year after being outed as “Yolanda,” McClain h爱上海同城论坛 爱上海同城as struck a deal with Variety’s parent company, Penske Media Corporation, to launch a new real estate news venture.

McClain said his decision to sell the Los Angeles-focused blog was fueled by what he called its growing popularity, and his need for additional staffing.

“It was getting really difficult to run it independently because of all the time it takes to research, write a story, and edit,” McClain said in an interview with The Real Deal. “It just became this beautiful monster where I’m trying to run this blog all on my own and it wasn’t a feasible business model.”

McClain kept his identity a secret since creating the blog in 2016, choosing to hide behind上海同城对对碰交友社区 上海夜网论坛 the name “Yolanda Yakketyyak and the “real estate yenta.”

But the mystery was solved last June, when an investigation by the Los Angeles Times revealed McClain, a former Compass finance manager who爱上海龙凤419桑拿 上海龙凤论坛sh1f had been laid off, created the site.

At the time of the unmasking, Compass released a statement saying it would “prosecute this individual to the fullest extent of the law. The firm believed that McClain may have used com[……]
