Danny Granger

Ex-ballers to NBA stars: Don’t let RE investors scam you Danny Granger and Devean George spoke at playe上海贵族宝贝 上海千花网龙凤论坛rs’ symposium

UPDATED, June 28, 5:00 p.m.: In his final year in the NBA, Danny Granger took home more money from his real estate investments than he did from his Miami Heat paycheck. “That’s when it really, really hit me,” he said Monday. “What am I doing? My knees hurt, my back is killing me. That was it. I was done.”

Granger’s audience of professional basketball players erupted in a knowing laugh. Some of the veterans, like Steve Bla爱上海同城对对碰 爱上海同城论坛ke and Kevin Martin, knew only too well the pain of hitting the wood day after day. Others, such as Atlanta Hawks star Paul Millsap, are still in their prime, and still others, such as Boston Celtics player Kelly Olynyk, only recently broke into the NBA. Age differences aside, the players had two things in common: they made a lot of money playing basketball and they are thinking of putting some of it into real estate.

This week, the National Basketball Players’ Association held its second real estate symposium in Manhattan. Like last year, it was taught by David Eyzenberg, founder of real estate investment banking firm Eyzenberg Company, adjunct professor at NYU and Columbia, and until recently a broker at Avison Young. The NBPA invited two ex-players who are now real estate developers as speakers to give advice. And if you believe former Indiana Pacers All-Star Danny Granger and former Los Angeles Lakers forward Devean George, real estate is a shark tank.

“These dudes, they are cutthroat,” Granger said of some professional property investors. “You always gotta be careful because they will try to screw you the quickest way possible.” Granger found that real estate pros often assumed he was stupid because he was an athlete.

“I always used that to my advantage, he said.  I wasn’t dumb and stupid. And it’s helped me in deals where they just kind of underestimated me.”

When Granger was in high school, he was reportedly offered a place at Yale. He went to Bradley University instead, became a basketball star, and earned tens of millions of dollars over a decade in the NBA until he retired last year. On the side, he also built up a real estate investment company, which, he says, now has construction and property management divisions and oversees a 200-plus-property portfolio (mostly income-producing rental buildings in secondary markets).

“The last three years of上海贵族宝贝论坛 上海贵族宝贝 my career I was more interested in real estate than basketball,” he said.

The NBPA s real estate symposium comes after years of growing scrutiny on athlete wealth management (or the lack thereof). In 2009, Sports Illustrated published a report claiming 60 percent of NBA players go broke within five years of retirement. The main culprits: bad financial advice, divorces and extravagant lifestyles. Fraud was another issue. Earlier this year, former NBA player Tate George was sentence[……]

Industrious Co

Brooklyn co-working company Industrious raises $37M Series B round brings total funding to $51M

Jamie Hodari and Industrious at 594 Dean Street in Brooklyn

Brooklyn-based co-working company Industrious raised $37 million in a Series B funding round, the startup announced Tuesday.

Riverwood Capital led the round, which also included Outlook Ventures and Maplewood and brought Industrious’ total funding to $51 million to date.

Industrious is one of a handful of firms looking to challenge $16 billion behemoth WeWork in the nascent co-working industry. The firm’s co-founder and CEO Jamie Hodari told The Real Deal that it plans to spend the bulk of its new funds on building out and opening new co-working spaces across the U.S. It currently runs a dozen spaces, including one in Brooklyn at 594 Dean Street, and wants to add 12 more.

Unlike most of its peers, Industrious chose to expand to different cities before growing within New York and has locations in places like Raleigh, St. Louis and Minneapolis. Meanwhile, its competitor The Yard has nine locations in New York and only one outside (in Philadelphia).  WeWork, which currently claims to have 112 spaces in 33 cities around the globe, also started off by opening several locations in New York before venturing out to new markets.

Hodari pointed to the competitiveness of New York’s co-working m上海贵族宝贝交流区 上海贵族宝贝论坛arket where dozens of firms fight for market share and to the potential benefit of being present in different cities.  “There’s enormous advantages to scale,” he said, arguing that customers value the ability to find offices in places they travel to. He also argued that being in different cities gives it a better handle on what customers there want, making it easier to grow later on. “You might scale vertically in one market to a very large scale, and then it’s very hard to say to investors whether you’ll succeed in Cleveland,” he said.

Prior to founding Industrious, Hodari ran Kepler, a nonprofit university for developing countries. The other co-founder, Justin Stewart, is a former vice president at Madison Realty Capital and served as director of acquisitions for Windham Development.

Industrious seeks to set itself apart by appealing to more “mature” (in the word爱上海 爱上海同城手机版s of Hodari) tenants companies that prefer a quiet office suit上海千花社区 上海千花网交友able for corporate meetin上海龙凤论坛sh1f 上海龙凤论坛gs, rather than a common beer keg. In practice, this means Industrious has kept its spaces far smaller than the average WeWork (its Brooklyn location on Dean Street totals less than 20,000 square feet), which it claims makes them more quiet.

“I would say if you look at a lot of our comp上海夜网论坛 上海夜网etitors, the look and feel is appealing to a very different sense of style,” Hodari said, “something that is noisy and loud and exciting.”

Trump Tower NYC

Meet the convicted criminals wh新爱上海同城对对碰论坛 上海同城对对碰交友社区o lived in Trump Tower Building has been home to questionable characters over the years

The Trump Tower at 725 Fifth Avenue

Trump Tower has been hom爱上海同城论坛 爱上海同城e to a long line of criminals over the years some with ties to Donald Trump.

上海贵族宝贝论坛 上海贵族宝贝One of them was Joseph Weichselbaum, a helicopter pilot who flew customers to Trump casinos and spent years in prison for cocaine trafficking. “爱上海龙凤419桑拿 上海龙凤论坛sh1fIt was fine, other than parking issues,” Weichselbaum said to Bloomberg of the building. “And try getting a bagel or a container of milk.” Weichselbaum was indicted for drug trafficking in 1985. Trump wrote a letter in his defense, calling him a “credit to the community.” While he was in prison, his girlfriend bought two units in Trump Tower and Weichselbaum lived there after his release.

Art dealer Helly Nahmad, imprisoned for illegal gambling, and former FIFA official Chuck Blazer, who pleaded guilty to corruption, also had units in the tower. Former FIFA official Jose Maria Marin, who was charged with bribery, is currently living in the tower under house arrest.

Mel Cooper, who was convicted of mob-related racketeering in 1985, bought two pads in Trump Tower in the mid-90s. His dogs Cookie and Cookie Jr. were said to have made a habit of “barking hysterically” as people walked by, leading to a 2007 c爱上海 爱上海同城手机版ourt complaint by the condo board.

And last but not least, Haiti’s tyrant dictator Jean-Claude “Baby Doc” Duvalier allegedly bought a $1.6 million Trump Tower apartment through a Panamanian company, according to a 1986 lawsuit by his own country. [Bloomberg] Konrad Putzier

Marx Brothers Playground

Not playing 爱上海同城 爱上海around: Lawmaker上海千花社区 上海千花网交友s want to close East Harlem playground to make way for a new resi tower Avalon Bay would relocate 1.5-acre Marx Bros. playground, but advocates are concerned about precedent

With backing from city lawmakers and Mayor Bill de Blasio, state Sen. Joe Serrano and Assemblyman Michael阿拉爱上海同城 爱上海龙凤419桑拿 Benedetto introduced bills that would shut down the Marx Brothers Playground on Second Avenue and East 96th Street within the week, reported the New York Post.

The 1.5-acre playground is on the site of a 1,100-unit mixed-income residential tower that will be the tallest apartment building north of 6新上海贵族宝贝论坛 上海贵族宝贝交流区0th Street.

The project is a partnership between developer Avalon Bay and the NYC Educational Construction Fund. In addition to a 720-foot residential tower, plans call for three new schools.

The developers plan to build a replacement playground on the site.

But neighborhood advocates aren t satisfied. This would set a very bad precedent for developers and city officials being able to go around existing zon上海千花社区 上海千花网交友ing regulations,” said Geoffrey Croft of NYC Park Advocates. “Literally, no parks and other public land would be safe in the city.”

A spokesperson for the mayor said the developers would bring the first new high schools to East Harlem in 50 years. They come alongside 300 permanently affordable apartments, new jobs for local residents and a full replacement of the playground,” Freddi Goldstein, the spokesperson, said.  [NYP] E.B. Solomont

West Village Shuttered Storefronts

See retail s shattered dreams in the West Village: MAP Vacant storefronts are spreading in o上海同城对对碰交友社区 上海夜网论坛nce-vibrant neighb爱上海同城 爱上海orhood

If sections of Bleecker and Christopher streets look a little post-apocalyptic, you can blame the retail real estate market.

Amid skyrocketing rents and competition from e-commerce giants like Amazon, a growing number of stores and restaurants in the West爱上海龙凤419桑拿 上海龙凤论坛sh1f Village shut down in recent years. Photojournalist Ben Fractenberg walked through the neighborhood to map vacant storefronts, which seem to be everywhere.

“Everything is gone. I don’t know how a business could spend that much money,” one resident told Fractenberg. “This whole area used to be more little shops. It’s sad.”

The New York Times broke down Bleecker Street’s retail vacancies last year, but the epidemic is also spreading to nearby Sixth and Seventh avenues and other side streets.

Billionaire’s mega

Some residents from the township of Montclair are in an uproar over a proposal to erect a 60,000-square-foot mansion adjacent to the Eagle Rock reservation in Essex County, according to NorthJersey.com, which noted that if built, the “Lloyd Estate” would be larger than the White House and rival President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate in Palm Beach, Florida. The outlet reported that Turkish billionaire Melih Abdulhayoglu, founder of Clifton-based cybersecurity firm the Comodo Group, appears to be the owner of the property after his name appeared in building proposal documents recently filed in Montclair. Plans for the sprawling estate reportedly include a billiard room, bowling alley, movie theater, two elevators, indoor and outdoor pools, a gym, spa and an 11-car garage. If approved, the mansion would be similar in size to Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates’ own “Xanadu 2.0” estate outside Seattle. NorthJersey.com reported the site of Abdulhayoglu’s proposed palace required the purchas新上海贵族宝贝论坛 上海贵族宝贝交流区e of two separate homes on six acres in Montclair that were both razed in February. The publication reported that local residents have voiced dissension over the destruction when the the pair of properties — a Civil War-era home at 14 Undercliff Road that sold for $3.88 million in January 2018 and a 1907 seven-bedroom mansion at 172 Lloyd Road that traded for $3.4 million last July — were leveled before 阿拉爱上海同城 爱上海龙凤419桑拿sche上海龙凤论坛 新上海贵族宝贝论坛duled meetings with historic preservation and zoning officials. [NorthJersey.com]
