Construction starts in the Bronx in 2017 are expected to exceed $2 billion for the third ye爱上海同城手机版 新爱上海同城对对碰论坛ar in a row thanks to a healthy pipeline of housing development.

The New York Building Congress estimates that roughly $2.3 billion worth of projects will have gotten underway this year, the Commercial Observer reported. That’s roughly the same figure as 2016 and slightly above 2015’s total of $2.2 billion.

“The Bronx is experiencing positive momentum and benefiting from continued strong investment from both the public and private sectors,” B新爱上海同城对对碰论坛 上海同城对对碰交友社区uilding Congress president and CEO Carlo Scissura said in a statement. “With the value of annual construction starts more than doubling since the beginning of this decade, it’s obvious that the development community now views the Bronx in a whole new light. And I would be surprised if 阿拉爱上海同城 爱上海龙凤419桑拿that percentage doesn’t continue to rise in the coming years.”

Through the first nine months of the year, projects that started in the Bronx were worth a total of $1.7 billion, according to the Building Congress’ analysis. Housing made up the largest slice of the pie at 53 percent, followed by 20 percent for public works, 15 percent institutions such as schools and health care facilities and 11 percent for commer[……]

Kushner Companies is negotiating to buy Vornado Realty Trust’s 49.5 percent stake in its troubled office tower 666 Fifth Avenue, according to a new report.

A spokesperson for Kushner confirmed the talks to the Wall Street Journal, but declined to comment on either the purchase or a restructuring of the debt on the Midtown tower, which is losing money and is roughly 30 percent vacant. Vor阿拉爱上海同城 爱上海龙凤419桑拿nado did not comment.

The real estate investment trust recently told investors in an annual report that it planned to sell its stake in the building, with experts saying any sale would likely occur上海千花网 爱上海同城对对碰 within a year. Vornado, led by Steve Roth, bought its share for $80 million and the assumption on half the debt in 2011, a deal that temporarily bailed out Kushner.

A $1.2 billion loan is due in February 2019, and the building reportedly doesn’t yield enough revenue to cover interest payments, the Journal reported.

A person familiar with negotiations told the Journal that Kushner’s plan to purchase Vornado’s minority stake in 666 Fifth would mean a refinancing of the debt on the building. If Kushner were to purchase Vornado’s stake, the deal would need to be approved by lenders, Bloomberg reported.

Kushner, which bought the building for a record $1.8 billion before the financial crisis, has trotted the globe seeking[……]

New York’s real estate industry has plenty to worry about in early 2018, fro上海龙凤论坛sh1f 上海龙凤论坛m rising interest rates to trade wars and a potential cyclical downturn. But strong private fundraising is an indicator that it might not get so bad after all.

A staggering $33 billion in new private real estate funds closed globally between January and March, according to research firm Preqin the largest first-quarter volume in a decade. The figure only includes so-called closed-end funds, or investment ve上海贵族宝贝 上海千花网龙凤论坛hicles with a fixed lifespan.

Preqin notes that it “expects these figures to rise up to 10 percent as more information becomes available,” and that the total could eventually surpass the record $35 billion raised in the first quarter of 2008.

Fund managers’ aggregate dry powder, or unspent capital commitments, rose to $266 billion in late March, up from $249 billion in December. Because closed-end fund managers have a fixed timeframe during which they have to spend their dry powder, strong fundraising should help prop up demand for real estate in the years to come.

Meanwhile, the fund m上海贵族宝贝交流区 上海贵族宝贝论坛anagement industry’s gr上海夜网论坛 上海夜网adual consolidation continues as fewer new funds close, but each one raises more money. Just 47 new closed-end real estate funds closed in the first quarter, the lowest total since at least 2013 a[……]

As the industry consolidates, Cooper-Horowitz is getting in on the current hiring frenzy by launching an investment sales platform.

The mortgage brokerage has tapped Elana Tsyganko and Max Kostikov, both previously direc阿拉爱上海同城 爱上海龙凤419桑拿tors of Winick Realty Group s investment sales group, to lead its new platform, Commercial Observer reported.

“We’ve looked very carefully at launching an investment sales platform for some time and are very excited to have Elana and Max join,” said Richard Horowitz, a principal of Cooper-Horowitz. “Their experience and capabilities will help to grow the business as well as complement our existing services.”

Horowitz noted that part of the company s motivation for launching the new platform was the fact that the industry is c上海夜网论坛 上海夜网onsolidating, and the firm wants to take advantage of the recent swell of available talent. For instance, in June, Eastern Consolidated announced it was closing down, freeing up the firm s 100 brokers.

Tsyganko joined Winick in July 2017 after working at Nest Seekers International and MetroPolitan Property Group. Kostikov worked at Venture Capital Properties before joining Winick last year.

UPDATED, Nov. 27, 2018, 3:40 p.m.: Goldman Sachs finalized a deal to invest in a massive affordable development in Long Island City — on the same day Amazon announced it would bring half of its HQ2 to the neighborhood.

The investment bank’s Urban Investment Group provided the Gotham Organization with $83 million for its 1,120-unit mixed-use project in Hunter’s Point South, Bloomberg reported.

The city last year chose Gotham Organization and local nonprofit RiseB上海千花网 爱上海同城对对碰oro Community Partnership Inc. to develop the property at 57th Avenue and Second Street, which will also include retail. Of the more than 1,000 apa上海龙凤论坛sh1f 上海龙凤论坛rtments, 900 are slated to be affordable for hou上海贵族宝贝论坛 上海贵族宝贝seholds earning between 30 and 145 percent of area median income, and 93 units will be set aside for seniors.

The timing lining up with Amazon’s announcement, one Goldman Sachs executive said, was an absolute coincidence.”

“I didn’t think New York was in the running,” said Margaret Anadu, head of the Urban Investment Group, “much less Long Island City.”

Instead, the draw was the fact that the project is situated in an Opportunity Zone, like much of the Long Island City waterfront. Since the tax break was pushed through, the Urban Investment Group has invest[……]
