    “This is not a surprise,” Faith Hope Consolo, chairwoman of Douglas Elliman’s retail group, told the Daily News. “This is a natural expression of where the trend is going.” [more]

    It’s a man’s world, and real estate is certainly no exception. But the Association of Real Estate Women’s 35th anniversary gala last night highlighted just how far women in New York City’s real estate industry have come, with the evening’s keynote speaker — City Council Speaker Christine Quinn, who would be the city’s first female mayor — offering encouraging words to hundreds of industry women (and men) in attendance….

    Landlords in Manhattan’s busier retail districts are asking sky-high rents – and getting them – but their counterparts in the less touristy corridors are finding that they have to pony up something extra to lease their spaces, brokers and building owners told The Real Deal. [more]

  • Joe Sitt, Jeff Sutton and Faith Hope Consolo

    Commercial real estate brokers are livid that the city’s big  landlords are disregarding the broker’s “exclusives” with retailers by attempting to land tenants on their own, sources told the New York Observer. Large retail owners, including  Joe Sitt and Jeff Sutton, are being accused of “skipping the middle man,” which is “totally not kosher,” a president of a top city brokerage told the Commercial Observer. “It puts the retail brokers in a difficult spot and it is morally incorrect.” [more]

    From the January issue: The South Street Seaport had to forgo its usual stream of shopping bag–toting tourists this holiday season as it continued to recover from the devastation it suffered during Hurricane Sandy. Indeed, while the Pier 17 mall, which juts out onto the East River, has reopened, some of the businesses (along with a bunch of others in the neighborhood) remain shuttered. “For the first time, I think the South Street Seaport may really sink,” Faith Hope Consolo, chairman of Douglas Elliman’s retail group, told the Wall Street Journal in late November. This month, The Real Deal checked in with residential brokers who work in the burgeoning area — which has seen a burst of new residential development since the Fulton Street Fish Market relocated to the Bronx in 2005 — to see how sales and rentals are holding up.

    A collection of high-end retailers are in talks to shuffle retail spaces, the New York Post reported, in an effort to up their commitments to Madison Avenue. Fendi is looking to depart 677 Fifth Avenue for the 5,620-square-foot space at 598 Madison Avenue currently occupied by Mont Blanc, which has its sights set on the larger, 10,300-square-foot two-story Baccarat corner store at 625 Madison Avenue.

    That transaction could be made possible by Baccarat’s negotiations for 25,000 square feet on three levels at 635 Madison Avenue, which was formerly home to a store from now-bankrupt Searle. [more]
