JDS, SHoP to build 77-story rental tower next to Extell s One Manhattan Square 600-unit building at 247 Cherry St. will have 150 affordable apartments

UPDATED, April 27, 7:39 p.m.: Legend has it that part of Dave Thomas strategy for growing Wendy s into one of the world s largest fast food chains entailed putting new franchises next to existing McDonald s locations.

Michael Stern may be trying something similar with Gary Barnett. The JDS Development Group leader followed Extell Development s chief to Billionaires Row and to Downtown Brooklyn, and now he s unveiled plans for a 77-story mixed-use tower next to Extell s 80-story One Manhattan Square project in Two Bridges.

JDS which is busy developing supertall luxury projects at 111 West 57th Street with Property Markets Group and 9 Dekalb Avenue with the Chetrit Group will partner with frequent collaborator SHoP Architects to construct a residential and retail complex at 247 Cherry Street on the East River waterfront.  The Lo-Down first reported the news.

The planned 900-foot tower will feature about 600 rental apartments, including 150 units that will be permanently affordable. The ground floor is being reserved for retail on Cherry Street and Rutgers Slip.

According to preliminary plans, the building will have a mixture of studios, one-bedroom and two-bedrooms unit, with affordable apartments interspersed throughout the building.

“We see it as a model of responsible development moving forward,” Stern said. “Take an under-utilized[……]

Billionaire Wealth

2015 was a bad year to be a billionaire Collective worldwide billionaire wealth fell $300B between 2014 and 2015

Illustration by Lexi Pilgrim for The Real Deal

It’s tough out there for the world’s billionaires relatively speaking, at least.

In the first decline since the aftermath of the global financial crisis, the collective wealth of the world s billionaires dropped to $5.1 trillion last year from $5.4 trillion in 2014, according to new research released by UBS and PricewaterhouseCoopers.

The average wealth of the group fell by $300 million to $3.7 billion, and those whose money i上海千花网交友 上海千花网论坛s in the materials, industrial and retail sectors saw the biggest drops, the Wall Street Journal reported.

The report analyzed data from 1,397 billionaires and included more than 20 interviews with advisers and around 30 with billionaires and their heirs.

“The Second Gilded Age has paused,” according to the study cited by the Journal. “Wealth transfer and commodity price deflation are putting billionaires under pressure at a time when technology and finance, the motors of great wealth creation, have stalled.”

But better times may be on the horizon, the report found. It predicts financial asset performance and economic growth will “create a favorable environment for billionaire wealth creation in 2016 and 2017.”

The number of billionaires is also on the rise. While 160 people dropped down to become mere multi-millionaires last year, the billionaire rank上海千花网交友 上海千花网论坛s actually welcomed 210 new people to[……]

UPDATED, Jan. 31, 10:36 a.m.: Nonprofit housing firm Phipps Houses is planning to build 403 residential units on Atlantic Avenue in East New York, according to property records filed with the city Monday. The bui上海千花网龙凤论坛 上海千花社区lding is the first step in a plan to construct roughly 1,200 apartments on the site, the firm said.

The residential section of the 14-story building would span more than 377,300 square feet. Along with the 403 units all of which would be affordable there are plans for 20,977 square feet of commercial space, including three retail units on the ground floor. Dattner Architects is the architect of record.

Phipps paid $38 million for the property at 3301 Atlantic Avenue in 2015.  The 300,000-square-foot site is bordered on the north and south by Fulton Street and Atlantic Avenue, and on the east and west by Euclid Avenue and Chestnut Street.

The property falls within the city’s rezoning plan for East New York, Cypress Hills and Ocean Hill, which was approved in April last year.  It is the first neighborhood to be rezoned上海同城对对碰交友社区 上海夜网论坛 under the de Blasio administration’s Mandatory Inclusionary Housing Plan, which allows developers to build taller but requires them to set aside a portion of units as affordable in return.

Listings website Homes.com did 爱上海 爱上海同城手机版a targeted survey of NFL fans and found out that fans of the same team had some marked similarities when it came to how their personal home fields looked, according to the Wall Street Journal.

Bears, Seahawks and Patriots fans are most interested in homes with wrap-around porches; Dallas Cowboys and Pittsburgh Steelers fans both want a bac新爱上海同城对对碰论坛 上海同城对对碰交友社区kyard pool; and Broncos fans are into a house wit上海贵族宝贝论坛 上海贵族宝贝h good man cave potential.

Other key findings: Steelers fans are also fans of the environment with more than 80 percent of fans saying energy efficiency is “very important.” Meanwhile, 上海贵族宝贝论坛 上海贵族宝贝Green Bay Packers fans taste for Victorian homes took Homes.com by surprise.

“We generally would expect them to like more ranch-style or log cabins or whatever it might be,” the site s VP Grant Simmons told the Post.

Discount brokerage Purplebricks slapped on wrist for misleading ads Flat-fee firm to pay $16K, change wording of ads in Australia

Purplebricks, the rapidly-growing flat-fee brokerage, has been slapped on the wrist by an Australian consumer agency over misleading advertising that promises low, fixed fees.

The U.K.-based company, which launched in the U.S. six months ago, was fined nearly $16,000 for ads deemed to be misleading to consumers. The Queensland Office of Fair Trading said the ads duped consumers who were charged to post listings even if their property didn t sell. In the U.S., Purplebricks charges sellers a nonrefundable, upfront fee of $3,200.

The ads — with the theme save yourself from commisery — are a play on commissions and misery. Purplebricks was also fined in the U.K. after boasting of fees saved.

In response to the Australian fines, the company has adjusted the wording of its ads in a small segment of the market, the company said.

Purplebricks has avoided similar troubles in th上海龙凤论坛 新上海贵族宝贝论坛e U.S., where its ads say save yourse新爱上海同城对对碰论坛 上海同城对对碰交友社区lf from real misery. (The wording is different because Purplebricks cannot eliminate the buyers agent commission like it can in the U.K. and Australia, where transactions only include a sell-side broker fee.)

“We can’t use that word over here because it sets up the idea in people’s minds that there’s no commission at all,” Jonathan Adler, the company s U.S. chief marketing officer, told Inman. It’s a different business model in t[……]

WeWork sold $700 million in bonds Wednesday to investors wary of another startup with unstable cash flow entering the debt market.

The New York-based firm that offers hip co-working spaces initially sought to raise $500 million, but the comp上海千花网龙凤论坛 上海千花社区any was able to raise an additional $200 million in seven year bonds with an interest rate of 7.875 percent. JPMorgan Chase advised WeWork on the bond sale.

Adam Neumann s company doubled its revenue last year to $886 million, with $244 million in cash and spent $1.5 billion on investments. But the firm also lost $933 million last year and has $18上海夜网 阿爱上海同城 billion in lease obligations.

The bond documents offered the public a rare glimpse at the company s financi上海千花社区 上海千花网交友als.

While some expressed concerns over the company s negative cash flow, few assets and at least $5 billion in lease obligations until 2022,  investors were attracted by the high interest rat上海千花网论坛 上海千花网e and WeWork s B-credit rating, the Journal reported.

Valued at around $20 billion and bolstered by a $4 billion investment from Softbank, WeWork has sought to expand its portfolio of co-working spaces internationally, including the purchase of an $810 million London office complex and the acquisition of Chinese co-working startup Naked Hub this month for $400 million.

Harry Macklowe keeps $82M in real estate in divorce; $700M in art to be sold Ruling comes 12 months after bitter divorce trial

In the end, the judge overseeing developer Harry Macklowe’s bitter divorce ordered his fortune split down the middle.

Nearly 12 months to the day after the bitter court proceeding ended, Judge Laura Drager ordered Linda and Harry Macklowe to sell their contemporary art collection, worth approximately $700 million, and split the profits evenly because the two sides could not agree on how much it is worth.

“It is an extraordinary collection and the achievement of a lifetime’s work,” she wrote in a 64-page decision, first reported by the New York Post.

Drager’s ruling comes nearly a year after the conclusion of a 14-week trial that chronicled the Macklowes years of marital strife along with the ups-and-downs of one of New York City s most storied developers.

In divvying up the couple’s vast fortune, Drager took a scalpel to the assets (and debt) accumulated over a lifetime:

· Linda can keep $40 million worth of art but will pay Harry a $20 million credit.

· Linda can also keep their $72 million condo at the Plaza Hotel, but must pay Harry a $36 million credit.

· Harry will retain ownership of $82 million worth of commercial property, including 737 Park Avenue, but has to pay Linda $41 million.

· They will split $62 million in cash held in sever[……]
