Corrections and clarifications

Correction: In a Web item published Dec. 3, The Real Deal inadvertently misidentified Beck Street Capital as the buyer in a deal when it was, in fact, the seller. We also misidentified Beck Street Capital as a REIT.

Clarification: In a Web item, The Real Deal neglected to mention that the heat in one woman’s apartment at the Apthorp had been fixed.

Correction: In a Web item published Dec. 15, The Real Deal cited an article by the blog Brownstoner that suggested that the Chetrit Group was the seller of the 40 N. 4th Street site in Wiliamsburg. The Chetrit Group has since informed The Real Deal that it was never involved with that site, and owns only the buildings next door.

Clarification: In a Web item, The Real Deal failed to identify Eastdil’s Doug Harmon as the broker in Google’s purchase at 111 Eighth Avenue. CB Richard Ellis’ Darcy Stacom, Bill Shanahan and Steve Siegel served as advisors to Google.

Correction: An article published Dec. 27 in The Real Deal about Durst Fetner Residential taking title to the property at 855 Sixth Avenue incorrectly said that a sealed agreement had been filed related to a 2006 lawsuit. In fact the sealed agreement was for the foreclosure case. The 2006 case remains ongoing.

Correction: In a Dec. 29 Web post, The Real Deal said that the lender at One Madison Park is arguing in court filings that the project’s original developers, Ira Shapiro and Marc Jacobs “acted improperly” in getting Eichner involved with the project when they did not have the authority to do so. The allegations only were levied at Shapiro.


Correction:
In a Dec. 30 column, The Real Deal misspelled Edgar Allan Poe’s name and stated that the new Poe Park Visitors’ Center is about 80 feet away from the writer’s former cottage. The architect behind the project has since informed The Real Deal that the center is actually 160 feet away from the cottage. In addition, The Real Deal stated that architect Toshiko Mori is Japanese. While she is of Japanese descent, she has lived in the United States for more than 40 years, so that reference has been omitted.
