  • Elie Hirschfeld

    The daughter of Hirschfeld Properties founder, Abe Hirschfeld ,sued her brother Elie Hirschfeld, for fraud, alleging that Elie, the current president of the property group, took advantage of their late father’s ailing health and cheated his estate out of more than $300 million, the New York Daily News reported. In court papers filed with the Manhattan Supreme Court and seen by the Daily News, Rachel Hirschfeld also accused Elie of physically abusing their father and forcing him to sign over many valuable properties. In some cases, the suit alleges, Elie forged his father’s signature “on numerous transfer documents, thereby transferring assets and interests valued in excess of $300 million to himself, to the point where (the) father, whose net worth had been in excess of $1.5 billion, died in debt, and (Elie’s) net worth is now more than $1 billion,” the filing claims….

  • Hirchfeld doing triathlons in Paris (left) and New York (right)

    Real estate mogul Elie Hirschfeld, the president and CEO of Hirschfeld Properties, is used to flexing his real estate muscles while making deals in New York. But Hirschfeld, who worked with his father, parking garage magnate Abraham Hirschfeld, for more than 20 years, will be flexing his muscles in a more traditional manner this weekend when he competes in the first New York City Iron Man event.

    Hirschfeld, whose Manhattan projects include the Grand Sutton co-op and the Crowne Plaza hotel, both in Midtown, will take to the streets on Saturday along with 2,500 people to compete in the inaugural New York championship. The developer, 62, is no stranger to multi-event athletic competitions — having competed in more than 75 triathlons. But this event may be a bigger test than even he is used to. [more]

    Real estate mogul Elie Hirschfeld, president of Hirschfeld Properties, was shocked yesterday afternoon to run into Season 7 winner of “The Bachelorette,” J.P. Rosenbaum, at a new Upper East Side Hirschfeld condominium. Rosenbaum, who featured as the honest, passionate workman who stole bachelorette Ashley Hebert’s heart in the ABC show, is a project manager at the Madison Avenue-based J Companies and is in the running to manage construction at the site. Hirschfeld, who has recently seen Rosenbaum on the cover of People magazine, was very impressed with Rosenbaum’s knowledge of New York real estate. “I haven’t watched the show,” he said, “but I was pleasantly surprised to meet him and to learn about his involvement with the show. The J Companies do a lot of fine work.”… [more]

    Hirschfeld Properties CEO Elie Hirschfeld and 330 East 61st Street (building credit: PropertyShark)

    Manhattan property owner Hirschfeld Properties has several deals in the works, CEO Elie Hirschfeld told The Real Deal, and the first one to become official is a refinancing of its 175,000-square-foot building at 330 East 61st Street.

    The $10 million refinancing closed last month, with a 6.28 percent fixed rate and a 20-year amortization period, Hirschfeld said. He noted that he made the transaction due to favorable market conditions and the previous loan coming due. Hirschfeld bought the land in 1980, public records show, and erected a structure specifically for a fitness center, which has since become Sports Club/LA, the city’s largest free-standing sports club, according to Hirschfeld, who is a triathlete himself (note: correction appended). While the refinancing was not necessarily done for any improvements within the building — the Sports Club is currently funding a three-year, cosmetic capital upgrade of the space — the firm simultaneously agreed to a $7 million credit facility with the refinancing lender, M&T Bank….

    The Ballet Club has signed a lease with Hirschfeld Properties to move into the second-floor space at 328 East 61st Street, formerly the site of Rabbi Pinto’s Mosdot Shuva synagogue. The Ballet Club signed a five-year lease for $90,000 to rent the 2,850-square-foot space, which it will occupy starting in August after it moves from its current location at 201 East 67th Street, and Hirschfeld completes construction on the studio, according Elie Hirschfeld, head of Hirschfeld Properties. The Ballet Club replaces Pinto’s synagogue, which vacated the space about nine months ago, according to Hirschfeld, because it purchased the four-story building at 122 East 58th Street for $28.5 million in 2009, public records show.

  • The steps of the tallest skyscraper in New York City got a workout this morning, as over 300 runners from 13 states and 25 countries raced up 86 floors to the top of the iconic building (see photos above). Matthew Seigel, director of retail services at Cushman & Wakefield, was the winner of the broker’s challenge at the Empire State Building Run-Up. The annual contest — now in its 34th year — features multiple races organized by the New York Road Runners and sponsored by the Mutiple Myeloma Research Foundation, or MMRF, and the Team for Kids charities. Seigel, 31, who has been working at Cushman for close to five years, climbed the 1,576 steps “two at a time… in a kind of walking lunge,” he recounted, to finish in first place with a time of 15 minutes and 28 seconds. “It was tough, but I feel great,” he said afterwards. … [more]

  • A Las Vegas underwear model who claims to be Tiger Woods’ fourth mistress, Jamie Jungers, told The Real Deal in an exclusive interview that she is apartment hunting in Manhattan today. “With all the things that have happened,” plus a desire to pursue her modeling career, she said, “it’s probably in my best interest to move up here.” She said she plans to move to the Big Apple within the next couple of weeks and has not decided whether or not to give up her home in Las Vegas. Jungers is heading out to see a 750-square-foot, one-bedroom apartment at One Irving Place, also known as Zeckendorf Towers, owned by Elie Hirschfeld, CEO of Hirschfeld Properties.
