  • Invesco’s NYC spree

    From the February issue: Institutional investors have long coveted New York real estate, but as with most aspects of life in the city, the rules here are different. Prices are generally higher and deals move quickly, making it difficult for newcomers to break into the market. But some outside real estate firms have cracked the code. Just ask Invesco Real Estate. Two years ago, the Dallas-based investment firm had effectively no presence in New York City. Since then, however, Invesco has been involved in a dozen deals here worth about $2 billion. And it is planning to transact deals worth up to $1.5 billion this year. [more]

    Investors have been scooping up rental buildings in Brooklyn at record prices, but the trend could be reaching its inflection point, according to the New York Times.

Rents in Brooklyn increased 10 percent in 2010, 7 percent last year and are expected to rise another 5 percent to 10 percent over the next 18 months, according to TerraCRG. [more]

    The Federal Reserve Bank of New York exercised its right to buy the downtown office building it occupies for $207.5 million, according to CBRE Group, which marketed the building. The 27-stoy 600,000-square-foot property at 33 Maiden Lane, between Nassau and William streets, was put on the market by Atlanta-based Invesco and Hannover Leasing in October.

    While the Fed’s occupancy of three-quarters of the building lent it stability, the lease also mitigated the building’s upside, according to published reports, because it was signed in 1986 and guarantees a below-market rate through 2023. [more]

    A large ground-floor and mezzanine retail space at 230 Park Avenue, the building just to the north of Grand Central Terminal, is available for rent.

    The prime 10,000 square feet of real estate is now being marketed as restaurant space, the marketing materials for the space from Monday Properties, the building operator, said. Previously, the southwest corner of the massive tower was the Jean-Claude Biguine salon, which closed in September. That space has now been combined with three others, which had been a Sushi Express, a Fedex and a Scottrade, to create the resultant block of 10,000 available square feet, according to the marketing materials. While Monday Properties intended to combine the spaces, the tenants “agreeably vacated,” and weren’t kicked out, a source said. [more]

    ANM Group has pulled its Carroll Gardens condominium from the sales market in hopes of selling it to an investor seeking to capitalize on Brooklyn’s booming rental market, according to the Wall Street Journal.

    The Karl Fischer-designed 11-story, 20-unit building took years to build thanks to financial difficulty and community opposition that ultimately forced a reduction in height. The homes finally hit the market with MNS brokerage in October, with asking prices starting at $599,000. This week the listings were pulled. … [more]

  • Atlanta-based investment fund Invesco has put the office tower at 33 Maiden Lane on the sales market, Crain’s reported, but thanks to a unique tenant the building’s sales price will likely be compromised.

    Three-fourths of the 625,000-square-foot tower is leased by the ultra-credit-worthy Federal Reserve Bank of New York. But the bank rented the space in 1986 in an agreement that runs through 2023, guaranteeing it will be paying below market rate for another dozen years.
