The New York Department of State has been ordered to pay more than $115上海千花网龙凤论坛 上海千花社区,000 in attorneys fees to the real estate appraisal firm Mitchell Maxwell Jackson over a botched investigation by the former Secretary of State into allegedly phony appraisal documents that maimed the once-dominant company.

Meanwhile, Mitchell Maxwell Jackson co-founders Steven Knobel and Jeffrey Jackson are pushing forward in a separate legal matter seeking $10 million in damages.

Knobel, who said he’s still waiting on the state to provide the investigator’s report that he believes will help make his case for damages, said the ruling on attorneys fees is encouraging.

“It’s always good to be proven right. It’s always nice when上海贵族宝贝论坛 上海贵族宝贝 justice is served, so to speak,” he told The Real Deal. “But it’s the documents that are really the problem with them.”

Knobel said the state is late in providing documents the court ordered to be delivered by early October.

A spokesperson for the Department of State said the office doesn’t comment on ongoing litigation.

In September, Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Alice Schlesinger ordered former Secretary of State Cesar Perales – who at the time oversaw the state’s licensing division – to cough up $115,479.89 in attorneys fees after the judge ruled in 2014 that the appraiser[……]

Blockchain technology company Harbor raised $10 million in venture funding, in爱上海 爱上海同城手机版 a deal that 爱上海 爱上海同城手机版could have major implications for the real estate industry.

Fifth Wall Ventures, a venture capital firm that specializes in real estate startups, participated in the Series A round along with Vy Capital and Valor Equity Partners.

Founded last year by Zenefits veterans Arisa Amano and Bob Remeika, San Francisco-based Harbor sells compliance technology for crypto-securities offerings. As The Real Deal reported last year, a growing number of companies are offering crypto-currencies backed by real estate. For these startups, figuring out if their offerings comply上海千花网 爱上海同城对对碰 with U.S. regulations is a challenge.  This has mostly prevented institutional investors from piling into real estate-backed coins, Fifth Wall’s co-founder Brad Greiwe argued.

“Fifth Wall believes Harbor’s protocol is precisely新爱上海同城对对碰论坛 上海同城对对碰交友社区 the standard the industry needs to trigger a tsunami of real estate assets that will tokenize, ICO, and trade on the blockchain,” Greiwe wrote in a blog post Tuesday. “This represents the most profound, disruptive change to real estate capital markets ever and the potential to spur the mass adoption of institutional blockchain solutions within the broader real estate industry.”

The Real Deal March 2018

The Real 爱上海同城论坛 爱上海同城Deal’s March issue is live! Inside: The complex world of asset forfeiture, top architects and Google’s takeover

The Real Deal s March issue

The seizure of the two trophy towers in Manhattan — 650 Fifth Avenue and the Park Lane Hotel — and the Department of Justice s imperfect track record when it comes to real estate has some wondering: Are federal officials punching above their weight?

For the cover story this month, The Real Deal dove into the complex world of civil forfeiture — a tactic favored by federal prosecutors, in part, because of its lower burden of proof and the potential payoff it offers victims. Officials have increasingly used civil forfe新爱上海同城对对碰论坛 上海同城对对碰交友社区iture to go after white-collar criminals, targeting real estate due to its association with money laundering.

“The reason why they go often to the civil forfeiture tool is because it’s easier to prove,” said Evan Barr, a former assistant U.S. attorney for the Southern District who is now a white-collar defense attorney at Fried Frank. “A criminal case requires proof beyond a reasonable doubt — a much higher standard.”

Meanwhile, the iss爱上海同城对对碰 爱上海同城论坛ue also takes readers inside Google s takeover of Chelsea and the Meatpacking District and the fierce competition among newbie commercial brokerages to elbow their way into a market that s largely dominated by three established firms.

235 East 42nd Street

Here is how Pfizer’s sale-leaseb上海龙凤论坛 新上海贵族宝贝论坛ack stacks up to other big deals The owner-occupiers include Time Warner, Sony and Coach

Clockwise from top left: 550 Madison Avenue,60 Wall Street and the Time Warner Center

In 2016, Pfizer embarked on a daunting task: a search for both the buyer of its longtime two-building headquarters on East 42nd Street and for a new office in New York City.

When it came time for investment-sales brokers to pitch Pfizer to market the buildings for sale, Cushman Wakefield appeared to have the inside track it had previously represented the company in leasing negotiations. Cushman did pick up the contract in January 2017, at a time when Pfizer sought $500 million for its Midtown East headquarters.

Cushman utilized a two-pronged approach to get the job done: a leasing team led by Josh Kuriloff and an investment-sales team led by Adam Spies and others. This week, news broke that Pfizer agreed to sell the properties to Brooklyn inve爱上海同城手机版 新爱上海同城对对碰论坛stor David Werner for about $360 million and that it had finalized an 800,000-square-foot lease at Tis上海同城对对碰交友社区 上海夜网论坛hman Speyer’s proposed office tower the Spiral.

Those two deals, even when occurring simultaneously, are often handled by different brokerages. In the case of Pfizer, star investment-sales brokers Doug Harmon and Spies, who had handled some of the city’s other larger sale-leasebacks, left Eastdil Secured for Cushman just months before their team won the assignment. Cushman, which placed No. 2 on The Real Deal s[……]

UPDATED, July 23, 4:15 p.m.: A Miami Beach condo building being demolished collapsed Monday morning, injuring at least one person.

The waterfront building at 5775 Collins Avenue, formerly known as the Marlborough House, had a demolition permit but not an implosion permit, according to the Miami Beach Police Department’s Twitter account.

Samuel Landis, a 42-year-old project manager, remains in critical condition at Jackson Memorial Hospital, a Miami Beach spokesperson said. The police department is now leading a criminal investigation.

We are monitoring the situation and our hearts and prayers are with the injured constructi上海同城对对碰交友社区 上海夜网论坛on worker and his family. Any questions involving the incident should be directed to Winmar Construction, Inc., Marcelo Kingston of Multiplan said in a statement.

Brazilian billionaire developer José Isaac Peres, founder of Multiplan Real Estate Asset Management, received approval in December to redevelop the site into an 89-unit, 17-story luxury condo building designed by Arquitectonica.

The first phase of demolition was set to begin Monday morning at 8 a.m. and last for two weeks, said Miami Beach spokesperson Melissa Berthier.

The developer originally filed an application for a demolition by implosion in August 2017, but submitted a new permit for a convention[……]
