Wrapping up Monday:
Developer the Related Cos. has partnered with Corcoran Sunshine Marketing Group--see our Friday link--to promote and sell $5 billion worth of residential condominiums in a variety of Related projects. It's a Crain's New York Business story.
A 12,510-square foot office leasing deal on W. 34th St. by the Empire State Building, brokered by Savitt Partners in Crain's New York.
And some biggies for Tuesday:
Tomorrow’s big mortgage news will be the JP Morgan Chase-Justice Department settlement. $13 billion for selling investors bad mortgages, with $4 billion of it going to homeowner relief. The details are still being negotiated, so says the New York Times Dealbook Blog.
Tomorrow’s big development news will be that the Howard Hughes Corp. wants to overhaul the South Street Seaport, featuring a 50-story tower, as detailed in the Times.
Harlem clergy back a move by the National Urban League to bring its big new headquarters building and a national civil rights building to 125th St., but some small business owners still aren’t happy about it. The Daily News notes “The Empire State Development Corp. agreed, voting unanimously Monday in support of the project which will now go before the Public Authorities Control Board for an expected approval on Wednesday.”
