The Real Deal is happy to welcome noted real estate reporter and columnist Lois Weiss as a contributor to our newsroom. As a long-time reporter for the New York Post, Weiss regularly covered some of the biggest news in the commercial real estate world, and will continue bringing these major scoops on TRD‘s platform.
Over more than 20 years covering New York City real estate, Weiss has interviewed the industry’s top brass and reported on the massive office trades, pricey retail leases and some of the city’s most controversial new developments. Just this week, she broke the news of a massive lease signed by coffee giant Starbucks, which would potentially bring a high-concept restaurant spanning three floors of the Empire State Building.
In addition to The Post, Weiss has written for Crain’s, Bisnow, Real Estate Weekly and more. She is a former president of the National Association of Real Estate Editors. She regularly writes the well-known real estate column Between the Bricks. We at TRD are excited to work with her, and to continue bringing the biggest news in real estate to our readers.
“When it comes to reporting on NYC real estate, Lois is a legend,” said TRD founder and publisher Amir Korangy. “We are happy to have her back here where she belongs.”
