Amazon Second Headquarters

Experts make predictions for Amazon s second HQ selection New York made the list of “least likely to be chosen” cities

(Credit from back: Westsara, Pexels)

For those who just can t stand surprises, a recent survey of 100 economists and real estate experts released a report predicting the top contenders and all signs seem to point to either Northern Virginia or Atlanta.

Compiled by Zillow, the survey looked at hom新上海贵族宝贝论坛 上海贵族宝贝交流区e values, rental markets, job growth, public transit, access to lawmakers and a pool of well-educated potential workers to select the two top contender上海夜网 阿爱上海同城s.

As the experience of Seattle suggests, Amazon will not only directly bring thousands 爱上海同城对对碰 爱上海同城论坛of high-paying jobs to the chosen city, but also has the potential爱上海同城对对碰 爱上海同城论坛 to transform the regional economy, said Zillow s Aaron 爱上海 爱上海同城手机版Terrazas in a release.

But the dark side to Amazon s HQ2 can also be demonstrated by looking at the case of Seattle according to other experts.

These cities should be prepared not only to justify their financial inducements, but to carefully weigh the social risks and costs, said Pulsenomics Terry Loebs. The mix and degree of these potential risks, such as diminished affordable housing stock, more congested roadways, and greater income inequality, vary considerably across the 20 markets.

Whether Atlanta will still remain a strong contender in light of lawmakers revoking tax breaks from Delta Air Lines after it ended discounts for NRA members remains to be seen, as CNBC noted. Amazon s top 20 shortlist was announced earlier this year and four southern cities were quickly singled out as strong potential choices. Erin Hudson

NYC Stop Work Orders

DOB to hike 爱上海同城对对碰 爱上海同城论坛penalties for violating stop-work orders First-time offense now means $6K fine

Rick Chandler (Credit: Getty Images)

The city will soon bump up fines for violating stop-work orders on construction sites, adding another $1,000 to penalties imposed for first-time offenses.

Starting June 18, the Department of Buildings will impose penalties of $6,0上海夜网论坛 上海夜网00 for initial offenses and then $12,000 for every subsequent violation. Currently, the agency charges $5,000 for the former and $10,000 for the latter.

The City Council approved the change in August, along with a slew of other building-related bills. At the time, the council also voted to double penalties for work done without a permit, which varies based on the kind of work.

Stop-work orders are issued when the DOB determines that work is being done unsafel上海千花网论坛 上海千花网y on a site and/or work violates zoning, construction or other city codes. A death on a construction site can halt work for several weeks. According to an analysis of 2017 DOB records by The Real Deal, the average length of time between when a stop-work order was issued and when it was partially rescinded on construction sites where a death occurred was 25 days.

The pena上海夜网论坛 上海夜网lty change also comes as the city is ramping up its construction safety regulations. A new law requires construction workers to complete at least 40 hours of safety training. In December, the City Council approved a bill that 上海千花网龙凤论坛 上海千花社区would levy fines of up to $500,000 against companies and $150,000 against individuals for violations that resulted in an injury or death at a construction site.

Long Island Cheat Sheet: Developers abandon Baldwin redevelopment project for the second time more

Clockwise from top left: Walmart wants town approval for 62,450-square-foot expansion of Farmingdale store, Former New Cassel school site to become affordable housing for seniors, Newly-built Huntington mixed use building sold for $6.2M and State gives Bellport distributor $675K state grant for $15M expan上海千花社区 上海千花网交友sion.

Developers abandon Baldwin redevelopment project for second time
Engel Burman Group and Basser-Kaufman have left a six-acre development project again, seemingly because they weren t able to acquire Baldwin properties needed for the effort, Long Island Business News reported. The team was picked in 2006 to remake a blighted area of the town. At the time, they walked away when they were unable to get some of the necessary properties. They were picked again in September 2016 and have seemingly run into the same problem as before. Hempsead officials said the developers were asking extreme tax breaks and had asked the Hempstead Industrial Development Agency to claim the properties through eminent domain. If the plan did go through, it would bring apartments, retail and mixed-use buildings to the area around the town s LIRR station. [LIBN]

Walmart wants town approval for expansion of Farmingdale store
Walmart hopes to expand its Farmingdale store by 62,450 square feet to create a supercenter with a grocery store, new vestibules, a drive-thru for picking up online orders and expanded departments, Newsday reported. The Town of Bald上海同城对对碰交友社区 上海夜网论坛win will meet to discuss the 40 percent expansion on August 6. Expansion plans for the building, which was built in 2007, also require approval from the Zoning Board of Appeals. [Newsday]

Former New Cassel school site to become affordable housing for seniors
The Town of Hempstead will build a 77 unit affordable housing complex for seniors on the site of an elementary school that was torn down in 2014. The town board unanimously approved the plan at its Tuesday meeting, Newsday reported. To qualify, applicants must be 62上海千花网论坛 上海千花网 and older while earning between 30 and 60 percent of the area s median income (which for a three-person family is about $93,900). The complex will have 60 one-bedroom units and 16 two-bedroom units in prefabricated buildings. The developer, Georgica Green Ventures LLC, will order the prefabricated homes from Simplex of Pennsylvania. The units could be available as soon as next summer. [Newsday]

Huntington mixed use building sold for $6.2M
Cosentino Realty Group bought a mixed-use building in Huntington that was completed in 2016 for $6.2 million. The building has 10 apartments and about 3,500 square feet of office space leased to Huntington Professional Suites, Long Island Business News reported. The building that previously stood on the site burned down in上海夜网 阿爱上海同城 March 2014. Chip Entwistle and Gurpreet Singh of ACC Space represented both Cosentino and the seller, 425 NYA LLC, which is contro[……]

Rothschild family sells last of its Austrian empire for more than $105M Estate was once part of Europe’s largest private fortune

(Credit: Getty, iStock)

The Rothschild family, which held Europe’s largest private fortune in the early 20th century, has so上海千花网交友 上海千花网论坛ld the last piece of its Austrian empire 200 years later.

The deal was worth more than $105 million, Bloomberg reported. The two trusts that were sold covered s上海龙凤论坛 新上海贵族宝贝论坛ome 17,30上海贵族宝贝论坛 上海贵族宝贝0 acres of forest land in the Lower Austria region. The buyer was Vienna-based packaging firm Prinzhorn Holding GmbH, which also bought an adjacent property from the family last year.

The family descends from Mayer Amschel Rothschild, a Frankfurt-based banker. He established international banking businesses through his five sons in the 1760s and, within Austria, the family was elevated to nobility. Salomon Mayer von Rothschild started doing business in Vienna around 1815 and quickly became the top financier for the Habsburg Empire, as well as the country’s biggest landowner.

The forest land was part of an estate purchased by Baron Albert von Rothschild in 1875. Nazis seized the land in 1938 and it was partially returned to the family after World War II. 上海夜网论坛 上海夜网Rothschild heir Bettina Looram lived there until her death in 2012 and the final two estates were represented by her daughter Bettina Burr, who agreed to sell them.

Many other lavish properties that are tied to Rothschild wealth are still spread throughout Europe and the United States, and even the Caribbean islands. [Bloomberg] – Gregory Cornfield

Virtual Staging

Fake Estate: Digitally-doctored listing photos are on the rise It creates a particular problem for investors buying property sight-unseen

(Credit: Pixabay and StreetEasy)

It will cost $2.40 for a paint job, $24 to replace flooring, and $40 to remove a wall or add a swimming pool.

Digital photo manipulation has become so widespread and cheap that home sellers are increasingly using the technology to spruce up their listings, the Wall Street Journal reported. This has the potential to create new headaches for end users, investors, appraisers and brokers.

This is a really new technology, Denee Evans, chief executive of the Council of Multiple Listing Services said. It’s just starting to bubble up questions as to where is that line” delineating acceptable uses, she added.

One obvious risk is for sight-unseen buyers. A Redfin survey from last爱上海同城手机版 新爱上海同城对对碰论坛 May found th阿拉爱上海同城 爱上海龙凤419桑拿at爱上海同城手机版 新爱上海同城对对碰论坛 20 percent of recent homebuyers had made an offer on a house they had never visited, down from 35 percent in 2017 when the market was hotter. In 2014, Olshan Realty found that nearly half of NYC s luxury product had been purchased sight unseen.

And then there are the investors and house-flippers like Opendoor, whose business model is based on making sight-unseen buys at scale, based on algorithms. Those algorithms will have to be trained to distinguish between real and virtually-staged listing photos.

Furthermore, with federal regulators pushing for automated appraisals that will make use of online listings, the hazards of doctored images could be spread to the general public.

Practitioners of virtual staging argue tha爱上海同城手机版 新爱上海同城对对碰论坛t it can protect tenant privacy, and help buyers better imagine future uses of the space. Empty homes online are not super appealing, Redfin s Quinn Hawkins said. “It’s hard to figure out where your furniture is going to fit.”

An executive from BoxBrownie, one major provider of virtual staging services, recently urged brokers to post altered photos side-by-side with the originals. Often, the product on the listing site looks nothing like the real thing. It s the company charging $2.40 for virtual paint jobs, with full room renovation images going for $64.

San Jose-based roOomy, which Redfin employs to stage vacant listings, says it discloses when the furniture in images is fake.

In any case, v新上海贵族宝贝论坛 上海贵族宝贝交流区irtual staging represents a far cheaper alternative to the in-real-life kind, which can cost thousands of dollars and has generally been limited to luxury properties. [WSJ] Kevin Sun

Foiz Ahmen

Quadrum’s hotel head on his love of street art, breaking out his bar tr爱上海同城手机版 新爱上海同城对对碰论坛ay and growing his firm’s Arlo brand

Foiz Ahmed (Photo by Emily Assiran)

Foiz Ahmed’s path to running Quadrum Global’s hotel division started when he was 16 years old and worked as a bellhop at a Holiday Inn in his hometown, Washington, D.C. “That’s where I fell in love with the hospitality industry,” the 47-year-old executive said in his airy windowed office on the 18th floor of 261 Fifth Avenue. “I loved talking to people and not sitting in front of a desk.” Ahmed, who graduated from the University of Maryland with a business administration degree in 1994, worked for Marriott International and Hersha Hospitality Management before joining Quadrum in 2016. The private real estate investment firm, founded in 2005, now owns more than 5 million square feet of property across hotels, residential buildings and senior living facilities. Its hospitality portfolio sp上海贵族宝贝 上海千花网龙凤论坛ans more than 1.5 million square feet in New York, Chicago and Miami, and the 486-room Arlo Midtown is its biggest hotel project to date. Looking ahead, Quadrum’s hotel business will focus on growing its Arlo brand of micro hotels. “There阿爱上海同城 阿拉爱上海同城’s no major market we’re not looking at,” Ahmed noted. But since the company can only tackle so many new cities at a time, Ahmed’s team is prioritizing Los Angeles, Denver and Seattle — growing markets with what the firm sees as the right balance of younger customers and business travelers. Down the line, Arlo may also crop up in Nashville and Austin, Ahmed said. The Quadrum hotel executive now lives on the Upper West Side with his wife and two children.

Street art

Ahmed, whose older brother was a graffiti artist, grew up with an affinity for street art. This piece — by Soho-based artist Jimmy Aponte — sits on his windowsill unframed. Art has been central to the Arlo Hotel brand, and Ahmed bought the piece about a year and a half ago when the hotel held a local art show that had roughly 50 artists’ works for sale. “It’s different from typical office art,” he said.

Jefferson globe

This small replica of the historic Jefferson Hotel in Richmond, Virginia, is encased in a glass globe and also sits on Ahmed’s windowsill. The ornament is a nod to both his profession and his marriage. His wife hails from Richmond, and the hotel, where they got married 19 years ago, was her dream venue. Ahmed has kept the memento close by in every office he’s worked in since.

Candy jars

The various candy — including Skittles, Twix and M M’s — is Ahmed’s way of encouraging teammates and employees to stop by his office more regularly. “That was always my way of getting people to come in here,” he said, noting that approaching senior executives can be intimidating for some. “It’s become a communal outpost.” Ahmed said he goes through tons of candy every month, and the visits have encouraged fellow Quadrum employees to chat more casually at work.
