More news and catching up on stories from earlier today and yesterday:

  • Hudson Cos.and the Related Cos. longtime Roosevelt Island development experience couldn’t have hurt them in landing the deal to build the first residence for the new Cornell NYC Tech university campus.  The companies have been at the helm of the Roosevelt Island Riverwalk development project, which started 13 years ago and transformed the island in its second phase of commercial market housing.  You can monitor what Hudson and Related are doing at Cornell NYC Tech on a construction website HERE.  And HERE are the details from Crain’s New York Business yesterday.
  • Want to talk about elite luxury ultra ultra ultra New York-maybe-looking-like-Dubai real estate? We’re talking about cash in Luis Vuitton suitcases.  There is no shortage of those discussions around but here’s the latest you will want to watch, “Foreign Cash Floods U.S. Luxury Real Estate Market,”  a Bloomberg video posted today with Jacky Teplitzky, who heads her own team at just-purchased (see QuidnuncRE link HERE) Douglas Elliman Real Estate.  
  • New York City Housing Authority agrees to "a game-changer":  federal judicial oversight for the next three years to avert suits for its chronic failure to repair, according to the Daily News.  The first focus will be mold--the subject of a compelling and gross photo essay at the link.
  • Bloomberg updates the sale of 100 William St. and looks at other Financial District developments, HERE. (Previous QuidnuncRE posting, HERE.)
