Madison International Realty

Madison International takes stake in L+M s East Village rental Building is valued at $50 million

Ronald Dickerman, Ron Moelis and上海千花网交友 上海千花网论坛 342 East 8th Street

Madison International Realty has picked up a stake in an East Village property owned by L+M Development Partners, in a deal that values the rental building at $50 million.

The company replaces another investor in the seven-story building at 342 East 8th Street, the NYAH Preservation Fund, according to documents filed with the city s Department of Finance on Wednesday. The fund was launched in 2010 by L+M and Citi Community Capital and was part of a joint-venture that bought into the 79-unit building with L+M back in 2016.

The details of Madison s investment were not上海龙凤论坛sh1f 上海龙凤论坛 immediately available. Representatives for L M declined to comment. Madison president Ronald Dickerman declined to disclose the value of his上海贵族宝贝论坛 上海贵族宝贝 company s stake but confirmed the deal.

The company purchased a stake in the Paulus Hook Apartments in Jersey City, which are爱上海龙凤419桑拿 上海龙凤论坛sh1f partly owned by L M. He said the company s replacing an institutional investor on that property and will likely have a role in a new tower planned for a garage nearby.

L M co-developed the East Village building with BFC Partners in the early 2000s, completing the project in 2002. L M bought out BFC in 2016, paying $44 million. The building, which sits at Avenue C and East 8th Street, has a mix of market-rate units and affordable housing and retail at its ground floor. The owners do not appear to have plans to make any changes to the building in the immediate future.

Coney Island Development

With a rash of new development and attractions, can the seaside enclave finally overcome its seasonal status?

The famed Luna Park reopened in 2010 after being shuttered for decades.

Coney Island has been transforming itself for more than a century. In 1903, its most famed amusement park opened and ushered in a heyday that would run for decades. But by the turn of the millennium, the seaside enclave was a shell of itself — a run-down backwater with large swaths of vacant land and rickety rides.

Over the last decade, however, the city has invested millions to revitalize it. And developers have followed suit with a spate of residential and commercial projects now rising or on the drawing board.

The team behind Essex Crossing — the Lower East Side megaproject — has a similarly sized development in Coney Island, for example. And billionaire John Catsimatidis is building a mixed-use complex that will include a trolley line to a subway station about a mile away.

Meanwhile, Ruby Schron’s Cammeby’s International is planning a 430-foot-tall rental on Neptune Avenue that will be the tallest tower in southern Brooklyn. The firm is also building a retail and office complex, which is already 50 percent leased up. And the list goes on: PYE Properties revealed renderings in June for the hotel it’s planning (complete with a spa and banquet hall) in Coney Island’s Shore Theater.

While prices are rising, sources say the area is underserved on the retail front. What’s more, there still aren’t “a lot of the mid- to large-sized contemporary condos that we see getting built in nearby Brighton Beach and Sheepshe新爱上海同城对对碰论坛 上海同城对对碰交友社区ad Bay,” said Warburg Realty agent Alex Lavrenov, who grew up in the area and works in the borough.

So the question remains, can Coney Island finally transform itself into a year-round neighborhood rather than just a destination for the Mermaid Parade and July 4 hot-dog-eating contest? Here’s a rundown of some key Coney numbers.


The amount of economic activity the city predicted its 2009 rezoning would bring to Coney Island over 30 years. Already part of that tally is a $60 million, 5,000-seat amphitheater that opened in 2016, a restored carousel, the re-built aquarium and a 20,000-square-foot oceanfront restaurant.


The number of acres that the NYC Economic Development Corporation bought from developer Joe Sitt’s Thor Equities in 2009 to use for a revitalized amusement park. The $95.6 million sale came after years of battling between Sitt — then the area’s largest landowner — and former Mayor Michael Bloomberg. Thor still owns five acres within the city’s rezoned entertainment district.


The cost that John Catsimatidis pegged his 21-story, mixed-use development at. The 432,000-square-foot project, dubbed Ocean Dreams, will house 425 market-rate rental apartments along with retail. The developer secured a $130 million construction loan led by Bank of America in June.


The number of residential units Taconic Investment Partners and the Prusik Gro[……]

111 West 57th Street

A Russian oligarch’s guide: How to hide $20M in a NYC skyscraper An Irish race car driver, a Manhattan developer, a Luxembourg-based investment firm and offshore companies each served as a front for an investment by Sergei Adoniev and Albert Avdolyan in 111 West 57th Street

(Illustration by The Real Deal)

A former banana importer, a fraudster deported from the United States and the co-owner of a major Russian telecommunications company. Sergei Adoniev is all of the above.

And more recently, the Russian oligarch and another wealthy telecommunications magnate, Albert Avdolyan, became investors in Manhattan’s future second-tallest skyscraper, 111 West 57th Street, a supertall condominium project built for the world’s ultra-wealthy.

The $21 million investment, disguised behind a series of frontmen, shell companies and promissory notes, was known only to a small number of people. Other investors in the construction project, including AIG, Apollo Global Management, Madison Realty Capital and developers Michael Stern and Kevin Maloney, all declined to comment on the record. Sources involved in the project told The Real Deal that those investors were kept in the dark about the Russians’ role.

That Adoniev and Avdolyan were able to keep their involvement a secret for so long shows how the global rich use offshore companies and elaborate funding structures to funnel millions into Manhattan’s real estate market virtually without a trace. The practice is legal, and lays bare how savvy investors can navigate around government systems that struggle to track the flow of what the International Monetary Fund estimates is mor上海龙凤论坛 新上海贵族宝贝论坛e than $12 trillion in offshore corporate wealth.

“Moving money offshore – while a common practice in Russia – might not look good for either that individual or the inner circle of government if that activity were traceable, hence the potential need for secrecy,” said Mark Hays, a campaign adviser to Global Witness, a nonprofit that spotlights offshore money flows.

Although Adoniev does not appear on any sanctions lists, he has close ties to the Russian government and admitted to committing a felony in the United States. His criminal history has drawn scrutiny from investors, and in 2012, when one of Russia’s largest telecommunications companies, Megafon, issued a prospectus to launch an IPO, it pointed to Adoniev’s past as a risk factor, as he was a minority shareholder at the time.

His business partner Avdolyan lacks the same degree of notoriety, but he sports the same classic oligarch flash: last year the telecom magnate hosted a $10 million wedding for his son in Los Angeles, where Lady Gaga staged a performance.

In 2011, when Adoniev and Avdolyan s company, Telconet Capital, entered a joint venture with Rostec, a Russian state-owned technology conglomerate that is now placed under sanctions by the U.S., Vladimir Putin was pictured overseeing the signing of the partnership. The pair were also present at Putin s annual gathering of Russian b[……]

Ram Gupta

Lawsuit accuses Michael Besen of trying to “foist his nemesis” Amit Doshi on unsuspecting partner Ram Gupta has filed suit related to pair of Bronx properties the three collectively owned

A former business part阿拉爱上海同城 爱上海龙凤419桑拿ner of Michael Besen and Amit Doshi has added another wrinkle to the ugly legal conflict between the two real estate veterans.

In a lawsuit filed on Feb. 21, Ram Gupta said he had equal ownership with Besen and Doshi at two unprofitable Bronx properties. The three of them had been trying to figure out how to dissolve the上海龙凤论坛 新上海贵族宝贝论坛ir partnership and divide up the properties, at 624 East 220th Street and 655 East 223rd Street, since at least 2017, according to the lawsuit.

Gupta, founder of Bronx-based Chatam Management, wanted to end the partnership by marketing and selling the properties, but Besen resisted this move because he did not want to tell Gupta about his allegations against Doshi, the suit alleges. The lawsuit essentially argues that Besen was trying to pawn Doshi off on Gupta.

“Besen tried to foist his nemesis Doshi on Gupta, so Besen could walk away owning his parcels,” the suit says.

Attorneys for Gupta and Besen did not respond to requests for comment. G上海龙凤论坛 新上海贵族宝贝论坛upta declined to comment on the suit, and Besen and Doshi couldn t immediately be reached for comment.

Besen sued Doshi in June, accusing his former business partner of setting up a secret “Doshi Account” that he used to take almost $1.5 million from the investment sales firm for personal investments. He also claimed that Doshi tried to steal a property in Jackson Heights, and drove talented brokers away from the firm. He filed a court summons seeking injunctive relief and up to $10 million in damages. Dos上海夜网论坛 上海夜网hi, a top broker, left for Meridian Capital Group in the summer not long after accusing Besen of mismanaging the company. The pair each owned 50 percent of Besen Associates, according to Besen s lawsuit.

Gupta’s lawsuit asks the court to end the partnership at the Bronx properties between him, Besen and Doshi, direct an accounting of the properties and sell them.

Although Doshi is not named as a defendant in the case like Besen, the suit accuses him of pursuing his own agenda as well.

“Doshi was long aware of Besen’s serious and detailed allegations against him…yet Doshi never disclosed them to Gupta, suggesting that Doshi too was pursuing his own undisclosed strategies, which contributed to the dysfunctionality of the [partnership],” the suit says.

The suit also claims that the Bronx properties “have not been economically productive and have been barely profitable if at all.”
