Auto Row lease earns NGKF brokers “Most Ingenious” retail deal award Goldman, Goldmacher take home top REBNY prize for Jaguar/Land Rover lease at 787 11th

When longtime Newmark Grubb Knight Frank broker Brian Goldman did a deal with Porsche for a new dealersh阿爱上海同城 阿拉爱上海同城ip on Automobile Row a few years ago, he could see the writing on the wall: The gritty stretch of 11th Avenue on the Far West Side was rapidly changing.

So when he told the owner of the neighborhood’s Jaguar and Land Rover dealership that it was likely their home at 787 11th Avenue would爱上海龙凤419桑拿 上海龙凤论坛sh1f some day be put up for sale, he already had the inside track to what would eventually become an上海千花网龙凤论坛 上海千花社区 award-worthy deal.

“The fact that I told them it was going to happen and it actually came true further added credibility to what I was doing,” said Goldman, who along with colleague Neil Goldmacher earned the Real Estate Board of New York’s coveted “Most Ingenious Retail Deal of the Year” award for the 25-year, 225,000-square-foot lease they negotiated on behalf of the dealerships.

After securing a new home for Porsche at 711 11th Avenue back in 2014, Goldman felt it was just a matter of time befo爱上海同城论坛 爱上海同城re 787 11th’s owner, the Ford Motor Company, would put its massive, 464,000-square-foot building on the market, he told the Wall Street Journal.

Jaguar and Land Rover, which Ford sold to Tata Motors in 2008, actually bid on the building, but came in $25 million short of the $250 million the Georgetown Company and an investment fund headed by Bill Ackman eventually plopped down.

So when it became clear they’d have to negotiate with new ownership, the Newmark brokers went out and lined up six possible new locations in case the landlords pushed them out. That foresight played a big part in the minds of the REBNY judges.

“It’s unprecedented in our business to see something like that,” Ripco Real Estate’s Andrew Mandell, who chairs REBNY’s retail committee, told the Journal.

CBRE’s Mary Ann Tighe, who represented the building owners along with Evan Haskell, said the negotiations 上海夜网论坛 上海夜网were not “starting from a happy place,” in part because the dealerships had lost out on the building.

But in the end the two sides came up with a plan that dovetailed with Ackman’s vision for the Raphael Vinoly designed overhaul, and the backup locations Goldman identified will be used for the dealership’s Nissan and Infinity showroosm.

“That certainly is a boon for the brand,” Goldman told the newspaper.

In another blockbuster deal, Eric Gelber of CBRE won the “Most Significant Retail Deal of the Year” award for negotiating Foot Locker’s move from the Times Square bow tie to 36,000 square feet at 1460 Broadway owned by Himmel + Meringoff and the Swig Company. [WSJ]   Rich Bockmann

Members of the City Planning Commission voiced c上海夜网 阿爱上海同城oncerns over the planned St. John’s terminal development at a hearing Wednesday.

Several members criticized the developer’s decision to group the project’s affordable units in a separate building, likening it to a “poor door,” according to DNAinfo. Some also questioned the size of the retail space, which commissioner Cheryl Effron described as上海千花网龙凤论坛 上海千花社区 “mall-esque.”

The Commission will vote on the project by Oct. 17, before it moves on to the City Council.

Westbrook Partners and Atlas Capital Group plan to build five buildings spanning 1.7 million square feet and 1,586 housing units on the site at 550 Washington Street. Four of the five planned buildings will be residential (two condos, one affordable senior housing and one mixed-income rentals), along with one hotel building. Westbrook 上海龙凤论坛sh1f 上海龙凤论坛and Atlas have set aside 20 percent of the units reserved for residents who make 60 percent of the area median income and 30 percent for people who make 30 percent of the AMI.

In October, they reached a deal to buy 250,000 square feet of air rights from nearby Pier 40 for $100 million, but the deal is contingent on city approval.  The 上海千花社区 上海千花网交友developers said they hope to beg爱上海同城 爱上海in construction in 2017. [DNAinfo] Konrad Putzier

236 Fifth Avenue

Kaufman closes $65M NoMad ground lease  Owner plans to launch $10M capital improvements program at 236 Fifth 

The Kaufman Organization s Michael Kazmierski, Fred Leffel and Grant Greenspan

The Kaufman Organization closed on its long-term NoMad ground lease at 236 Fifth Avenue, which is valued at $64.5 million, sources told The Real Deal.

The deal works out to more than $800 per square foot for the 99-year leasehold on the 11-story, 80,000-square-foot property. Kaufman negotiated the deal with property owner LCT Associates, as TRD originally reported.

“I think both parties have a benefit with this structure,” 上海龙凤论坛sh1f 上海龙凤论坛said Michael Kazmierski, Kaufman’s director of acquisitions, who negotiated the deal along with colleagues Fred Leffel and Grant Greenspan. “Ground leases still represent a great solution for multi-generational owners who have protected a long-term cash-flow stream and also provide a tax-efficient structure.”

Kaufman plans to spend $10 million upgrading the building, including renovating the lobby, upgrading elevators and install爱上海同城论坛 爱上海同城ing new fiber optic/t上海千花网龙凤论坛 上海千花社区elecommunications infrastructure. The landlord declined to comment on rents 阿拉爱上海同城 爱上海龙凤419桑拿in the building, but did note that the firm will be offering “significant” tenant improvement allowances for new leases.

Lennar Corp.

Lennar in talks to sell real estate lending unit to Stone Point Capital Company indicated possible sale of Rialto Capital earlier this year

Stuart Miller (Credit: iStock)

Miami-based Lennar Corp. is in advanced talks to sell its real estate lending unit, Rialto Capital.

Private-equity firm Stone Point Capital is considering buying Rialto for an undisclosed price, the Wall Street Journal reported. Lennar indicated in April that it might sell Rialto as part of a larger effort to focus on home building and sell or spin off noncore subsidiaries.

The change comes as Lennar and other home builders face a housing market on the downswing. Home-builder sales in the U.S. slowed 3 percent in September compared to the same time last year, according to a survey of 400 builders. Supply and land costs are on the rise, while builders continue to struggle to find enough skilled labor.

Last week, Lennar repo爱上海同城 爱上海rted earnings of $453.2 million in the third quarter or $1.37 per share, beating analysts exp上海千花网交友 上海千花网论坛ectations of $1.19. Still, the company expects fourth quarter home deliveries to fall to 14,500 from its previous forecast of 15,000 due to the impacts of Hurricane Florence.

Earlier this year, the company acquired competitor CalAtlantic Group in a $5.7 billion deal, making Lennar the country s largest homebuilder by revenue. [WSJ] — Kathryn Brenzel

Maybe she didn’t love it?

Kanye West has backed out of buying a luxury condo at Faena House in Miami Beach, according to Page Six. West will reportedly lose his deposit on the unit, a four-bedroom, 4,700-square-foot condo owned by Alex Blavatnik, brother of energy billionaire and Faena District investor Len Blavatnik.

Unit 5A is on the market for $15.5 million. Oren Alexander and Isaac Lustgarten of Douglas Elliman have the listing.

West, who saw the property during Art Basel, was buying the condo for Kardashian as a Christmas present. Page Six reported that the rapper is blaming news of the deal leaking as the reason for pulling out of the purchase, among other reasons. His representative said the couple is looking for a vacation home that offers more privacy tha上海同城对对碰交友社区 上海夜网论坛n the 18-story, Norman Foster-designer tower at 3315 Collins Avenue.

“None of th上海千花社区 上海千花网交友ose reasons mentioned [for pulling out of the purchase] are true. When Kim and Kanye went to Miami to view the condo together after Christmas, Kim loved it, but felt it was not private enough for them,” his rep told Page Six.

Commercial Brokerages Going Public

Newmark is still lagging, while Cushman, CBRE and JLL have all rebounded from late 2018’s stock market turmoil

(Click to enlarge)

Newmark Knight Frank saw its stock take another beating in February and March, while the rest of the “Big Four” commercial brokerages bounced back from late last year’s market-wide malaise.

Newmark, which made its Nasdaq debut in December 2017, was trading at about $8.30 a share on March 27 — down 41 percent from the already discounted $14 when the firm went public, and up less than 1 percent from the start of this year. Sources say Newmark’s deflated stock price since its IPO has stemmed from multiple factors unrelated to the firm’s core business, which has been in growth mode.

“Last year, the company had a big communication issue,” Sandler O’Neill Partners analyst Alexander Goldfarb said about the firm’s timeline for its spinoff from Howard Lutnick’s BGC Partners. “They weren’t being forthright, or as forthright as they would have wanted.”

But with much of that in the rearview, Goldfarb added, Newmark’s valuation could soon pick up if market conditions allow.

After going through their own rough patches last year, the other three big firms, Cushman Wakefield, CBRE and JLL, all showed strong rebounds at the start of 2019.

As the S P 500 caught a windfall in the first quarter, Cushman’s stock price rose by 22 percent, to $18, CBRE’s by 22 percent, to $49, and JLL’s by 19 percent, to $152, as of March 27.

JLL’s stock took a slight hit in mid-March after the firm announced plans to acquire and merge with HFF — a $2 billion deal that will create the country’s largest debt brokerage platform. But firms that acquire competitors typically see the price of their shares fall in the short term, analysts say.

JLL and CBRE, which went public in 1997 and 2004, respectively, now command share prices eight and five times higher than where they started. Cushman’s stock, meanwhile, has held up the best among the four brokerages since its IPO last August.

“Cushman has outperformed other peer stocks somewhat in recent months, and part of that probably comes from the IPO discount,” said Anthony Paolone, a stock analyst at JPMorgan. He noted that share prices are often discounted upon issuance, which can make performance appear better in the short term.

Booming business

Following a strong year in commercial leasing and investment sales activity nationally, earnings season came with more good news for Cushman, CBRE and JLL.

On the day of JLL’s latest earnings call, on Feb. 12, the price of its sh上海千花网交友 上海千花网论坛ares rose by more than 10 percent on the heels of strong fourth-quarter results. The firm’s $4.9 billion in revenue marked a 13 percent year-over-year increase — including a 34 percent spike in leasing revenue in the Americas alone.

CBRE and Cushman saw less dramatic one-day jumps after their most recent earnings calls, though the two firms also reported strong quarterly revenue growth of 14 and 17 percent, year-over-year.

But the markets appeared unimpr[……]
