David Gialanella, who was tapped in July to lead the New York Tri-State region for DTZ, told the Wall Street Journal that his goal is to double – or even triple – the current staff of 65 in New York and 20 in New Jersey over the next year or year and a half.

    A six-story commercial townhouse known as the Philip Lehman Mansion has changed hands for $40 million, according to the Corcoran Group and Jones Lang LaSalle, which brokered the deal.

It hit the market as a sale and a rental in February, shortly after owner Lehm Holdings finished a $20 million renovation to restore the property to its original 19th century grandeur, as The Real Deal reported. It features copper-framed ocular windows, French doors and a bowed-stone balcony. [more]

    Women and minorities hold fewer than 1,000 of the commercial real estate industry’s nearly 14,000 senior executive jobs nationwide, according to new data from the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. Out of the 13,773 top-level positions, Hispanic men held 400, or 2.9 percent;  Asian men held 220, or 1.6 percent; and black men held 179, or 1.3 percent, the data show. The female minority categories fared even worse, holding fewer than 140 posts, or 1 percent.

    A handful of commercial brokerages, such as CBRE Group and Jones Lang LaSalle, have chief diversity officers, but added the position only in the last few years. Others, such as Cushman & Wakefield, have discontinued the position, but a Cushman spokesperson told the Wall Street Journal that the decision was due to the company’s belief that “ownership of diversity is the responsibility of everyone.” [more]
