    Robert Durst

    Robert Durst, an estranged member of the Durst real estate family, was arrested Sunday for allegedly exposing himself and urinating on a cash register at a CVS in Houston. The 71-year-old Texas millionaire was charged with criminal mischief. Police said he paid for his prescription prior to exposing himself.

    “There was no argument,” a spokesperson for the Houston Police Department told the New York Daily News. “He did not seem agitated, he did not argue with anyone. He just casually walked out of the business.” [more]

    With three recent leases, the Durst Organization and the Port Authority seem to be breaking out of a three-year slump to fill One World Trade Center.

    The first new tenant after the dry spell was KiDS Creative, followed by BMB Group, a London-based wealth management company. Legends Hospitality is setting up its headquarters in the building and will also run One World Trade Center’s 1,766-foot-high observatory.

    In total, this brings us to seven tenants who have signed to lease in the 3 million-square-foot building and more potential deals are in the works. [more]
