first_imgRelated posts:No related photos. Comments are closed. Previous Article Next Article Socpo and AHHRM get closer on public sectorOn 30 May 2001 in Personnel Today Local government HR body Socpo and NHS HR group the AHHRM are forming closerties to better promote public-sector HR issues. Both HR representative groups feel the CIPD does not sufficiently support HRprofessionals in the public sector. Francesca Okosi, vice-president of Socpo, believes that the CIPD does notfulfil its role of helping public-sector members perform their jobs better. She said, “The CIPD is not aimed at the needs of public sector. We aregoing through modernisation yet this is not re- presented in the CIPD’swork.” The AHHRM and Socpo want CIPD events to have more public-sector speakers andbe cheaper to attend so HR professionals from the sector can afford to go. The two groups will work together on professional development, benchmarking,staff secondments and research. Socpo representatives will also speak at the AHHRM’s September conferenceand they are also considering a joint conference and action plan next year. TerryGorman, assistant chief executive of personnel and corporate services atNottinghamshire County Council, urged the CIPD to re-evaluate its support forpublic-sector professionals. He said, “It is more difficult to work in the public sector than theprivate. The private sector has much simpler objectives while we have much morecontrols, a wider range of services, more legislation to work under, scrutinyand press interest.” In response, Mike Emmott, employee relations adviser at the CIPD, claimedthe institute is working with public-sector organisations such as the NHSExecutive and the Local Government Employers’ Organisation to ensure researchand projects take their needs into account. last_img read more

What office tenants pay at Witkoff & Cammeby’s Woolworth Building

first_imgThe Woolworth Building at 233 Broadway (Getty)Overlooking City Hall Park in Lower Manhattan, the Woolworth Building was the tallest in the world when built in 1913.The Woolworth family sold the 60-story tower in 1998, and in 2012 the Witkoff Group and Cammeby’s International sold the top half to Alchemy Properties, which would convert it into high-end condos.Witkoff and Cammeby’s still own the office portion of the building, at 233 Broadway, and in 2015 refinanced it with a $256 million loan from Blackstone. The financing was expanded to $355 million in 2018, and last fall a $56 million piece of the debt was included in a CMBS deal named BXMT 2020-FL3.Documents from the securitization provide an inside look at the property’s finances.ADVERTISEMENTAs of last July, the 790,000-square-foot office condominium was 92 percent leased to 84 tenants, up from 79 percent in 2015. The five largest tenants occupy 40 percent of the building and account for 42 percent of annual base rent.The largest tenant is New York University, which has been there since 2003. Its 94,000-square-foot space is home to part of NYU’s School of Professional Studies as well as some administrative offices.The second-largest tenant is the New York City Law Department, which represents the city in civil and criminal cases. Last February, a month before work-from-home became a big thing, the department expanded its space by more than 70 percent to 85,000 square feet.The third-largest tenant is the New York City Police Pension Fund, whose main office has been at the Woolworth Building since 2002. Shop Architects and Allied Advertising round out the top five.Read moreNYC Law rules in favor of Woolworth Building for new digsAlchemy closes on upper portion of Woolworth for $68MContractor accuses Alchemy Properties of trying to damage reputation As of September, six months into the pandemic, rent collection at the property stood at 72 percent, according to the loan prospectus.The debt, which matures this May but has two one-year extension options, has remained current throughout the pandemic. The 2018 upsizing of the loan came with an additional $99 million in mezzanine debt and returned about $74 million in equity to the landlord.When Kroll Bond Rating Agency representatives visited the site in October, several retail spaces were vacant and boarded up — including Starbucks, bankrupt stationery chain Papyrus and half of T-Mobile’s space.The Woolworth Building’s five-story penthouse hit the market with an asking price of $110 million in 2017, drawing skepticism amid a slowdown in the condo market. In 2019 the price was slashed to $79 million. In November, a contractor sued Alchemy over more than $1 million in unpaid bills.Contact Kevin Sun Share via Shortlink TagsCammeby’s International GroupTRD InsightsWitkoffwoolworth building Email Address*center_img Full Name* Message* Share on FacebookShare on TwitterShare on LinkedinShare via Email Share via Shortlinklast_img read more

From boss to broker: Ilan Bracha joins Corcoran

first_imgIlan Bracha (Getty)Ilan Bracha is headed back to agent life.The mega broker-turned-businessman and five members of his real estate group, IB Global, are the newest arrivals at the Corcoran Group.This week, Bracha’s team, which includes himself, three other agents and two management heads, joined Corcoran’s East Side office.The move comes just over a year after Bracha sold his Manhattan brokerage, Keller Williams NYC, which he co-founded in 2011. That franchise region has since been transferred to Richard Amato, who owns several Keller Williams offices in Nassau County.Under Bracha and co-founder Haim Binstock, Keller Williams NYC became one of fastest-growing brokerages in the city, earning around $1 million in annual profits and swelling to 900 agents in 2015 before purging underperforming agents from its ranks three years later. Speaking to The Real Deal in 2019, Bracha described pivoting to a “quality over quantity” approach after the firm grew too big, too fast.ADVERTISEMENT“It’s not about being a boss; it’s really about being the best you can be and serving the people in your business better,” Bracha said this week. “That’s the way to grow.”After letting go of the brokerage, Bracha said he was eager to return to his roots as an agent. In his real estate career, which spans more than 20 years, he’s completed over $2 billion in transactions.The IB Global team, which Bracha formed last year, closed more than $50 million in sales in the first quarter of 2021, he said.But Bracha said the brokers needed a new home if they wanted to take their success to the next level, and he didn’t want to open a brokerage again. Instead, he set his sights on Corcoran, saying the company would give his team access to more inventory, new development and higher price ranges.Read moreIlan Bracha sells Keller Williams NYC Keller Williams NYC is on the sale block Keller Williams Midtown claimed it would shutter to avoid $2M in rent: lawsuit Email Address* Full Name* Share via Shortlink Share on FacebookShare on TwitterShare on LinkedinShare via Email Share via Shortlink Tags He added that the move will help him continue investing his earnings into New York City real estate and proptech without needing to build a brokerage from scratch.“It’s the No. 1 brand,” Bracha said of Corcoran, which clocked in at the top of The Real Deal’s residential brokerage ranking of 2020, closing $5.8 billion worth of sales in Manhattan, Brooklyn and Queens. It ranked third in the city by headcount with 2,264 agents.As for entering the same market as his former brokerage so soon, Bracha said he is not concerned about a little competition.“There is room for every person, every broker in town right now to do better from last year,” he said.Contact Cordilia James Corcoran GroupIlan Brachakeller williamsNYC Luxury MarketResidential Real Estate Message*last_img read more

Latitudinal range fluctuations in the marine realm through geological time

first_imgOur concept of polar marine faunas as having evolved in comparative isolation over long periods may need to be revised. New evidence from the Southern Ocean, in particular, suggests that a number of taxa may have had connections with lower-latitude regions in the comparatively recent past. Opportunities for high-low latitude faunal interchange were enhanced considerably by reduced meridional temperature gradients over the greater part of the last 100 million years. Indeed, such is the nature and scope of past latitudinal range fluctuations that they could be major determinants of regional patterns in taxonomic diversitylast_img
