E&M Associates TRData LogoTINY plans to build a 49,000-square-foot miniatures tourist attraction known as Gulliver’s Gate at the Times Square building.

Chase Welles and Alexandra Escobar of The Shopping Center Group represented Kushner in the deal with English. Greg Smith and Kelly Simek of JRT Realty Group represented OHM Group.

Kushner bought the retail condo for $296 million in 2015. English, who started Olives in Boston in 1989, is best known for his cookbooks and a slew of concept restaurants.  [NYP]Kathryn Brenzel
