50 Hudson Yards

Related nearing deal for $2.5B financing package at 50 Hudson Yards: sources Project set to be city’s most expensive office tower; loan could be largest of its kind

Related Companies, which is developing what s slated to be New York s most expensive office building at 50 Hudson Yards, is in advanced talks to secure a $2.5 billion financing package for the property, The Real Deal has learned.

The financing would include a roughly $700 million equity injection and a $1.8 billion senior loan from a syndicate of banks, sources familiar with the discussions said. 上海千花网交友 上海千花网论坛The loan, if it closes, would be among the largest-ever construction loans for an office tower.

Bank of China, Deutsche Bank and Wells Fargo are putting together a five-year mortgage for the construction of the 2.9 million-square-foot tower, which Related is developing in partnership with Oxford Properties Group. Wells Fargo and Deutsche Bank are acting as the lead arrangers on the deal, sources said. It’s unclear which lender will act as the administrative agent, the liaison between the borrowers and lenders.

Sources said a foreign institutional investor is stepping up to provide the additional equity, with two sources naming Mitsui Fudosan America, a subsidiary of Tokyo-based Mitsui Group that already owns a majority stake in 55 Hudson Yards.

Times Square Office Market

New York’s tourism boom of the past decade has been great for the上海夜网论坛 上海夜网 real estate industry, but a small subgroup has mixed feelings about it: Times Square office landlords. With more visitors and panhandlers crowding the bow tie, it’s becoming harder to convince big office tenants to stay in the neighborhood.

“It’s not ideal to wind through costumed characters on your way to work,” CoStar analyst Lauren Baker told Bloomberg. “There’s so much noise and commotion.” The problem is becoming more acute amid competition from new office towers on the Far West Side and FiDi.

Earlier this month advisory firm EY announced that it is leaving爱上海同城手机版 新爱上海同城对对碰论坛 its 1-million-square-foot space at 5 Times Square to move to Brookfield’s Manhattan West development.

Times Square office rents after concessions fell by one percent per year over the past two years, according to CoStar. Optimists point to its central location and easy access to multiple subway lines.

“We’re not getting the rents we anticipated five years ago, but we’re satisfied with the rents we’re getting,” said Douglas Durst, whose company D上海千花网论坛 上海千花网urst Organization owns 4 Times Sq上海千花网论坛 上海千花网uare. But he also added that the neighborhood “has a very big future as an office district.” [Bloomberg] Konrad Putzier

Parkside Construction

C阿爱上海同城 阿拉爱上海同城onstruction firm working on some of NYC s biggest projects accused of stealing wages, cheating state out of $8M Parkside Construction faces fraud charges

215 Chrystie Street, 133 Greenwich Street, 111 West 57th Street and Cyrus Vance Jr.

A Queens-based construction company working on 111 West 57th Street allegedly stole $1.7 million in wages from its workers and cheated the state out of $8 million.

Parkside Construction faces fraud, larceny and other charges for allegedly failing to pay at least 520 of its employees for the correct hours of work completed at various job sites in the city, including JDS Development Group and Property Markets Group s luxury condominium tower, according to a complaint filed on Wednesday in state Supreme Court. If workers complained about being underpaid, they were either told that the paycheck was a mistake or they were instructed to find work elsewhere, Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr. said on Wednesday. He noted that many of these workers were undocumented immigrants, making them particularly vulnerable to the scheme. The concrete company allegedly stole $50,000 from one employee over a three-year span.

Parkside also allegedly fudged timesheets at JDS 626 First Avenue, the Lam Group s 215 Pearl Street, Hidrock Realty s 133 Greenwich Street, McSam Hotel Group s 326 West 37th Street and 350 West 40th Street, Ian Schrager s 215 Chrystie Street and DLJ Real Estate Capital Partners 9 Orchard Street.

The Pierhouse’s sales streak hasn’t stopped yet.

The Brooklyn luxury market saw a total of 14 contracts signed last week, and a condo at the Pierhouse once again took the top spot. This was the third week in a row that a Pierhouse unit was No. 1 and the sixth week in a row that a Pierhouse unit took one of the top two spots.

The properties sold for about $42.2 million overall and went for an average price of about $3 million, according to the latest report from Stribling Associates. The firm defines the borough’s luxury market as all homes priced at $2 million or higher.

The units were split between seven condos, six houses and one co-op.

Last week saw more activity than the week before, when there w上海夜网论坛 上海夜网ere 11 contracts signed in the market for about $30.3 million.

The Pierhouse unit that topped last week’s list went for $4.95 million. The two-bedroom unit at 130 Furman Street spans about 3,000 square feet and sold at an 18 percent discount from its asking price.

The second priciest deal last week was for a house at 231 Washington Avenue in Clinton Hill, which went for $3.75 million. The roughly 4,300-square-foot building is currently configured as a three-family home with a duplex and two apartments.ww

Top NYC Investment Sales Firms

Cushman makes big gains and expands its lead over rivals as the market rebounds from an ugly two-year slump 

From left: Aaron Jungreis, Roy March, Doug Harmon, Darcy Stacom and Andrew Scandalios

It had been a long two years, but the city’s investment sales market finally turned a corner in 2018.

Last year saw the total value of commercial property traded in the five boroughs rise for the first time since the market tanked following the peak days of 2015, according to several industry sources. And a new reality further set in for the commercial brokerage landscape.

Cushman Wakefield — long used to playing third string behind competitors Eastdil Secured and CBRE — grew its lead by leaps and bounds since poaching Eastdil’s top sales team, led by Doug Harmon and Adam Spies, in late 2016. Eastdil, meanwhile, has struggled to fill that void as it works toward a management-backed buyout from its parent company, Wells Fargo.

“Market share clearly shows this has worked out well for Cushman Wakefield,” said Anthony Paolone, a stock analyst at JPMorgan who covers the commercial brokerage. But he added that it’s hard to tell if Cushman got the return on investment it was aiming for when the brokerage lured Harmon and Spies with a big signing bonus.

“The level of overall market activity plays a big role, too,” Paolone said.

All in all, buyers and sellers traded $49.1 billion worth of property citywide last year — up 35 percent from 2017’s $36.4 billion, but nearly 40 percent below the peak of[……]
