Donald Trump Lawsuits

What Trump s lawsuits say about how he d govern: Trump v. Tenants Part II of TRD’s dive into the GOP front runner’s legal history

From the April issue: Donald Trump is on the verge of claiming the Republican nomination for President of the United States.

In this month s issue, The Real Deal took a deep dive into Trump’s litigation history, focusing mostly on Manhattan real estate. We reviewed hundreds of cases filed in Manhattan courts between the early 1980s and last month that involved Trump or one of his business entities. The suits also offer a window into his temperament — beyond the campaign bluster — and into how he would conduct himself as t爱上海龙凤419桑拿 上海龙凤论坛sh1fhe leader of the free world.

Below is the 上海千花网论坛 上海千花网second web installment of a story that looks at decades of Trump’s legal battles and how he handled each one.

Trump v. Tenants
Discrimination accusations

Trump’s first major foray into the legal system traces back to the early 1970s, when his father’s company, then called Trump Management, was accused of racial discrimination at rental buildings, mostly in Brooklyn and Queens. The U.S. Department of Justice spoke to witnesses who claimed that the Trumps used racial codes on rental applications to flag (and reject) minority applicants. For example, “Colored” was marked with a “C,” one witness charged.

The Trumps did not take these accusations lying down. They sued the federal government for $100 million in damages. They settled the DOJ suit two years later in 1975, reaching an a[……]

Manhattan House

Developer puts 74 rent-stabilized Manhattan House pads on the block O’Connor Capital Partners paid $623M for the building in 2005

O Connor Capital Partners Bill O Connor and Manhattan House at 200 East 66th Street

Two years after completing an arduous condo conversion of Manhattan House — the landmarked Upper East Side building that Grace Kelly, Jackie Robinson and jazz legend Benny Goodman once called home — the developers are shopping 74 unsold un上海千花网交友 上海千花网论坛its for $1.125 million each.

O Connor Capital Partners, which bought the 493-unit building in 2005, is looking to unload a mix of studios to three-bedroom units that are all occupied by rent-stabilized tenants.

At $83.3 million, the asking price works out to roughly half of the block s vacant market value, an estimated $166.6 million, according to listing broker Mark Zborovsky. He said it s the best block to hit the market in the last decade, thanks to the large number of units and the building s pedigree.

R上海贵族宝贝 上海千花网龙凤论坛epresentatives for O Connor did not immediately comment on the offering.

The firm, founded by the late Jeremiah O Connor, paid $623 million for the property at the height of the market. It began the condo conversion in 2007 and completed it in 2015, despite pushback from litigious tenants and a messy split with O Connor s former partner on the project, N. Richard Kaliko爱上海 爱上海同城手机版w. Located at 200 East 66th Street between Second and Third avenues, Manhattan House was originally built in 1952 by New York Life Insurance Co. The[……]

East Harlem Playground

Cuomo orders probe into de Blasio s controversial $1B East Harlem real estate plan State must determine whether playground site that would house resi tower is parkland

Gov. Andrew Cuomo on Monday ordered a state investigation into Mayor Bill de Blasio s controversial plan to move an East Harlem playground, which would make way for a $1 billion mixed-新爱上海同城对对碰论坛 上海同城对对碰交友社区income residential tower at 96th Street and Second Avenue.

Before the city can proceed with plans for a high-rise tower on the site, the state must determine whether or not Marx Brothers Playground is officially parkland, the New York Post reported. The city planned to relocate the playground in order to make way for a 1,100-unit, mixed-income residential tower.

But Cuomo ordered an investigation of the land s historical records and uses to determine whether or not the site is simply a playground or counts as parkland. He said the latter “should 爱上海同城手机版 新爱上海同城对对碰论坛not provide zoning bonuses to private industry,” but playgrounds “are a different classification and may be eligible for zoning incentives, and no state approval of alienation is necessary.”

The governor believes that the land will ultimately be classified as parkland, which could complicate the project.

The $1 billion project is a partnership between developer Avalon Bay and the NYC Educational Construction Fund. The project calls for a 720-f[……]

A mini revolution: The strategy behind YotelPad s first East Coast hotel-condo project The London-based hotel brand specializing in compact rooms is planning a $150M tower downtown by Aria Development Group and AQARAT

David Arditi and Hubert Viriot and a rending of YotelPad

For its first micro-unit hotel-condominium on the East Coast, the Yotel chain chose a market that is awash in new development: Miami.

But the chic London-based hotel brand, which focuses on international hub cities and up-and-coming urban neighborhoods, sees an opening for its planned location in downtown Miami, which is gentrifying and redeveloping, said Yotel CEO Hubert Viriot.

“Miami has always been appealing to us. It’s a hub for the U.S., Central and South America, with a strong international appeal, great connections to Europe and Latin America — a vibrant and exciting city,” Viriot told The Real Deal. “It’s sexy. It fits every single typology and criteria we were looking for as a destination. It’s only natural for us to come here.”

YotelPad Miami will rise at 227 Northeast Second Street in downtown Miami, a 31-story tower that should open in late 2020. It will cost $150 million to develop. The new concept is in line with the company’s brand, which offers compact units at moderate prices, according to the 爱上海同城对对碰 爱上海同城论坛partners in the project.

Aria Development, led by principal David Arditi, and AQARAT, a Kuwaiti publicly traded company, have joined together to build the YotelPad property. It will be managed b[……]

Prying inside Alex Sapir’s real estate empire The fiercely private head of Sapir Corp. is expanding the development firm’s foothold in Miami, after having long focused on New York

UPDATED, Sept. 13, 6:15 p.m.: Last June, Alex Sapir’s ASRR Capital announced plans to build a 1.7 million-square-foot mixed-use development in Miami’s Arts Entertainment District, in what would be the real estate mogul’s biggest South Florida investment to date.

The Miami 18 project would add to th新爱上海同城对对碰论坛 上海同城对对碰交友社区e portfolio Sapir’s firm was building in the city, to go with other developments like a smaller luxury boutique condo building planned for Surfside. Miami 18 called for two towers, one 60 stories the other 40 stories, with up to 1,200 rental units, 20,000 square feet of retail space and 350,000 square feet of office space.

Now called Sapir Corp. — the publicly-traded firm s name since April — has mostly focused its development efforts in New York, but has begun a bigger push into Miami. Appearing to confirm his commitment to the city, Alex Sapir in the spring purchased a $17 million waterfront home in Miami Beach’s Venetian Islands. The company’s investment in the Magic City is among Sapir’s recent strategy shifts after tightening his grip and boosting his ownership in the Israel-based organizaton.

In an email response to questions for this story, Sapir said he expects to invest more in South Florida over the next few years, citing the re[……]
