In February, a state judge ordered the Dakota’s board to cancel Fletcher’s lease, change the locks and remove his belongings so the unit could be sold to pay Fletcher’s creditors, according to Wall Street Journal.

The co-op board filed a lawsuit this week, tapping John Burger at Brown Harris Stevens to market 爱上海同城 爱上海the property. Burger told the Journal that an apartment like Fletcher’s – complete with Central Park views, working fireplaces and a library – hasn’t been available at the Dakota in more than 10 years.

Part of the proceeds from the sale would go to investors who won a $50 million judgment last year against Fletcher and his company, Fletcher Asset Management, in relation to claims they were defrauded by the hedge funder.

The Dakota board is also seeking to recoup legal fees tied to a race discrimination lawsuit filed by Fletcher against the co-op in 2011 and subsequently dismissed last year.

U.S. office leasing fell to the lowest level since 2012 and rents barely grew last year, adding to concerns over the market’s stability.

Net office absorption across the country fell to 21 million square feet in 2017, according to a report by research firm Reis, down from 29 million square feet in 2016.

T爱上海同城对对碰 爱上海同城论坛he good news is that developers still aren’t building many new office towers nationwide, which should help keep the market stable, the Wall Stre上海夜网 阿爱上海同城et Journal 上海千花网 爱上海同城对对碰reported. New construction added a mere 37.6 million square feet of new office supply in 2017, barely up from the 36.6 million added in 2016.

The average effective office rent, including concessions, grew by 1.8 percent in 2017, compared to 4 percent in 2015 and 12 percent in the year prior to the 2008 financial 爱上海同城论坛 爱上海同城crisis.

New York City’s office market had a vacancy rate of 8.7 percent, according to Reis, the lowest in the country and almost half the national average of 16.3 percent. [WSJ] Konrad Putzier

Related claims in a lawsuit that the Building and Construction Trades Council of Greater New York inflated construction costs by more than $100 million at the megaproject, the New York Post reported. The bills were bumped up, in part, by having two higher-ranking union members of the Concrete Workers District Council serve as coffee boys, roles that are usually filled by the junior-most members, according to a lawsuit filed in state Supreme Court. One of the coffee boys was “the 55-year-old brother of a high-ranking union official, according to the lawsuit.

Though the coffee boys were paid $42.48 an hour plus $27.39 worth of benefits, the workers had to pay for the coffee themselves (so the wages didn t even cover the coffee), according t上海龙凤论坛sh1f 上海龙凤论坛o the Post.

A property once rented by the Sultan of Swoon — and where Marilyn Monroe was rumored to have carried on her affair with John F. Kennedy — is being shopped around for $12.5 million, according to a listing from the Agency.

Located above the Chatsworth Reservoir, the Mid-Century Modern style home features seven bedrooms and nine bathrooms. Amenities include four fireplaces, a guest house, pool ca爱上海同城 爱上海bana and sweeping views of the San Fernando Valley.

Marketing materials also tout the possibility of building another structure on the 7-acre lot. The agriculture zoning also allows for a vineyard on the site.

Dora Hutchinson, heiress to the Chase Manhattan Bank fortune, commissioned the late architect William Pereira to design the home in 1949. The socialite also hosted lavish parties at the site, attracting celebrities like Lucille Ball and Judy Garland.

Property records link the home to an individual named Richard Wolfen, president of Rock Asset Management, a Los Angeles-based real estate asset management firm.
