    200 Lafayette Street

    General Growth Properties is offering up the top floor of 200 Lafayette Street, where JC Penney snapped up a lease for the entire seven-story building in a 15-year deal with three five-year options back in May 2012.

    CBRE is handling the leasing, the New York Post reported, and no rent has yet been posted. But insiders tell the paper that the 16,780-square-foot space could snag as much as $89 per square foot, lightening the load for the struggling department store chain. [more]

    From the February issue: While his father Charles shied away from taking on institutional partners, Jared Kushner, the 33-year-old CEO of Kushner Companies, has courted them. The firm has also been in growth mode since he took over, jumping to 750 employees today from 80 in 2008. And while Charles focused the firm primarily on New Jersey, Jared has turned his attention towards New York City, where about 50 percent of the company’s assets are now located. This is an excerpt from “Jared Kushner, the accidental CEO,” which appeared in the February issue of The Real Deal.
