Louis C.K. West Village

Louis C.K. gets serious about NYC real estate

Louis C.K.

Louis C.K. is walking, joke-cracking proof that 上海同城对对碰交友社区 上海夜网论坛the $3 million-and-below price point is the residential market’s sweet spot. Rather than blowing his comedy gold on one big New York City penthouse, he’s gobbling up lots of smaller units — mostly in the West Village — all priced well below $3 million.

The comedian now owns at least five apartments in the downtown neighborhood, including three with his painter ex-wife, Alix Bailey, at 345 West 4th Street, the most recent of which he nabbed for $564,900 last January. They’ve been collecting units at the building for more than a decade.

Then, last month, he upped the ante by buying a $2.45 million two-bed上海夜网 阿爱上海同城room co-op at 101 West 12th Street.

Even out on the East End, he’s topping out at three mil: He paid $2.49 million for his house on Shelter Island, known as Primrose Cottage, in 2014.

The funnyman admits he’s, well, a bit funny about money. “When I first started making tons of money, it freaked me out,” he told the Hollywood Reporter in 2015. “I would always get 10 grand in cash every show because I needed to touch the money.”

Stellar Management

59 tenants sue Gluck s Stellar Management claiming rent overcharges Group organized by nonprofit HRI seeking class-action status

1795 Riverside Drive, Larry Gluck and 236 East 13th Street

UPDATED, April 18, 5:28 p.m.: Larry Gluck’上海夜网论坛 上海夜网s Stellar Management is facing a lawsuit for allegedly overcharging dozens of rent-stabilized tenants, violating the terms of property tax abatements the company receives from the city.

Fifty-nine tenants from more than a dozen of Stellar s buildings say the landlord abused the J-51 tax abatement, a city subsidy for multifamily properties that requires lan阿爱上海同城 阿拉爱上海同城dlords to keep apartments in the rent-stabilization program, the Wall Street Journal reported.

The action against Stellar in New York State Supreme Court came together following an investigation by the Housing Rights Initiative, a nonprofit that’s inspired similar actions against New York City landlords receiving J-51, such as A E Real Estate Holdings. It also comes in the wake of a mildly successful initiative by Gov. Cuomo to crack down on landlords who flouted J-51 regulations.

In addition to violating the terms of J-51, tenants further allege that in some cases Stellar misrepresented the costs of individual apartment improvements, or IAIs, that allow landlords to make legal increases to otherwise stabilized rents, and routinely failed to register apartments with the Department of Housing and Community Renewal, the state agency that regulates rent-stabilized housing.

The deals in Flushing just keep on coming.

Eastone Capital Partners, a Long Island-based real estate investment company, is under contract to buy a development site at 141-57 Northern Boulevard for $23 million, according to a source familiar with the新上海贵族宝贝论坛 上海贵族宝贝交流区 deal.

The roughly 23,000-square-foot site is currently occupied by a Bank of America branch and the headquarters for the International Union of Operating Engineers Local 14-14B. It will remain as is for about two years until Bank of America’s lease runs out. The developer then plans to demolish the building and turn the site, which has about 68,000 square feet of上海夜网论坛 上海夜网 mixed-use development, into a project with retail and condos.

Stephen Preus上海千花社区 上海千花网交友s of Cushman Wakefield brokered the deal and said in a statement that he expected this area of Flushing to see more interest going forward.

“Downtown Flushing has seen such an increase in pricing for land, many developers are looking at the secondary areas on the fringe of downtown such as Northern Boulevard for more sensible price points,” he said. “I expect this trend to continue.”

Eastone has several projects in Queens already, not just in Flushing but also in Long Island City, Ridgewood and Astoria, according to their website.

Flushing is filled with projects right now, to the point whe[……]

115 Mercer Street

Manhattan retailers threatening to get out of Dodge if landlords don’t cut rent Retailer wants Thor to lower its rent at 115 Mercer Street

115 Mercer Street and Joseph Sitt

Facing high costs a上海贵族宝贝论坛 上海贵族宝贝nd lower than expected profits, retailers on some of Manhattan s most expensive thoroughfares are trying to get landlords to give them a break on rent.

For instance, the Kooples, a French clothing seller, is threatening to leave its space at Thor Equities 115 Mercer Street six years ahead of when its lease expires if the landlord doesn t reduce the rent, Bloomberg reported.

“We were expecting much higher income,” Elodie Barbe, a spokesperson for the Kooples, told Bloomberg. “We are under discussions with the landlord to see what is possible.”

Property owners in Manhattan have increasingly granted rent reductions and inked shor爱上海同城手机版 新爱上海同城对对碰论坛t-term leases in a bid to avoid rampant store vacancies. According to Cushman Wakefield, some 11,000 stores may close in the U.S. in 2018.

“Landlords are adjusting the way they do business to market conditions,” Patrick Smith, a vice chairman of the retail brokerage at Jones Lang LaSalle, said “It’s healthy. It certainly has stimulated activity.”

Last week, The Real Deal reported that Thor lo上海千花网论坛 上海千花网st most of its interest in three retail-and-office properties due to unpaid debt to its joint-venture partner. It s unclear if Thor will agree to lowering the Kooples rent, which is $650 per square foot for its space.

China Bond Market

Chinese developers look to international bond market amid default troubles Fourteen top developers in China have issued bonds worth about $8.6 billion as of January 2019

(Credit: iStock)

Chinese developers are increasingly seeking to raise money on the international bond market, even as default rates skyrocket.

Fourteen top developers 上海贵族宝贝交流区 上海贵族宝贝论坛in上海贵族宝贝交流区 上海贵族宝贝论坛 China have issued offshore bonds worth about $8.6 billion as of January 2019, more than double the amount from the same time last year, the South China Morning Post reported.

Some Chinese developers have st阿爱上海同城 阿拉爱上海同城ruggled amid a slowing housing market in Hong Kong and in mainl阿拉爱上海同城 爱上海龙凤419桑拿and China. In one case, Zhejiang-based developer Jiayuan International s stock fell by 80 percent amid concerns that it would not meet its $350 million in debt obligations, according to the SCMP.

But investors, in pursuit of higher returns, are buying the bonds of these Chinese companies. Analysts say investors are also hoping that China’s central government recent decision to ease some of its restrictions on bank lending will help developers. Some Chinese cities have also removed resale restrictions, according to the SCMP.

Default risk at many of these Chinese real estate companies is still high. The number of defaults at China’s highly leveraged companies rose to 119 in 2018 from 35 in 2017, SCMP reported. [SCMP] Keith Larsen

Michael Jackson’s former Neverland Ranch relists at sharp price chop The 2,700-acre property, steeped in controversy, first listed for $100M in 2015

It’s the上海千花社区 上海千花网交友 “Neverland Ranch” that never seems to sell.

After nearly four years and at least four agents’ efforts, the 2,700-acre former home of the late pop star Michael Jackson is getting another price chop.

The property is returning to the market for $31 million, less than a third of its original asking price of $100 milion in 2015, the Wall Street Journal reported.

The ranch, which is about 40 miles from Santa Barbara, had a hefty discount in early 2017. Then the sellers — a fund managed by Colony Capital and Jackson’s estate — slashed the price to $67 million.

The latest broker to list the renamed “Sycamore Valley R爱上海龙凤419桑拿 上海龙凤论坛sh1fanch” is Suzanne Perkins of Compass. Perkins was among the agents who originally listed the property in 2015. She told the Journal t爱上海同城 爱上海hat the ranch failed to sell then because “a price tag of $100 million is not chump change.”

The latest price chop comes as an HBO documentary, “Leaving Neverland,” which details Jackson’s alleged child sex abuse, is set to air next week.

Jackson paid $新上海贵族宝贝论坛 上海贵族宝贝交流区19.5 million for the Los Olivos property in 1987, but stopped living there following his 2005 molestation trial. Amid his mounting debt, Jackson failed to pay a $23 million loan on Neverland, and it almost went to auction before Tom Barrack’s Colony Capit[……]
