    Two real estate investors who picked up a 116,000-square-foot building at 158 West 27th Street for $25 million in 2010 have more than doubled their money, selling the Midtown South property for $57.5 million, Crain’s reported. Stephen Meringoff and Leslie Himmel sold the building to Emmes Asset Management.

    York City, opens its first office here today, company executives told The Real

    James Wacht and Peter Braus, principals of commercial brokerage Sierra Realty,
    formed the new entity that will operate as Lee & Associates NYC, based in
    Midtown and operating in Manhattan. The new company now has 14 brokers and
    agents (brought over from Sierra Realty), but by the end of next year they expect
