UPDATED, May 8, 3:4上海贵族宝贝论坛 上海贵族宝贝8 p.m.: WeWork hired Danish architect Bjarke Ingels as “chief architect,” as the co-working company ramps up its development business.

Ingels, who designed the Durst Organization’s rental apartment building VIA 57 West, among other New York projects, will continue to run his architecture firm BIG alongside his new job. At WeWork, the architect will be charged with designing the company阿爱上海同城 阿拉爱上海同城’s new Midtown headquarters in the Lord Taylor building at 424 Fifth Avenue. He is already working on the design of WeWork’s first WeGrow grade school.

WeWork co-founder Adam Neumann told Fast Company that the company will build more ground-up developments, designed by Ingels, this year. It plans to start working on so-called campuses basically small neighborhoods managed by WeWork that include offices上海夜网论坛 上海夜网, apartments and a school in 2019.

“If I were to just hire his firm, then there’s a client-service provider relationship,” Neumann said. “In my opinion that’s a limiting relationship. It’s what we’ve observed in the real estate world. If we can streamline these decisions and make a little bit of f上海千花网论坛 上海千花网rictionless design, we can unleash creativity.”

WeWork’s real estate investment vehicle, which the company launched in partnership with private equity firm Rhone Group, bought the Lord Taylor Building for $850 million from Hudson’s Bay Co. last year. In April, another WeWork venture paid $826 million for the London office complex Devonshire Square.

WeWork, which was valued at $20 billion following a $4.4 billion investment by Softbank, is hungry for more money. The co-working firm raised more than $700 上海千花社区 上海千花网交友million in a bond offering last month, but some investors expressed concern with the company s financials. WeWork lost $933 million last year, and the bonds have already slumped. [FastCo] Konrad Putzier

Correction: an earlier version of this post incorrectly claimed that the same WeWork vehicle bought the Lord Taylor building and Devonshire Square.

Yet anot上海千花网龙凤论坛 上海千花社区her One57 seller takes a loss The unit sold for $6M less than the seller paid in 2015

An apartment at One57 just sold at a $6 million loss.

Unit 77 sold for $42 million, according to records from the city s Department of Finance. The condominium was listed last year for $49 million, with the price later cut to $44 million. In 2015, an undisclosed European buyer bought the apartment for $47.8 million.
Douglas Elliman and Compass had a co-exclusive on the listing.

Unit 77

The buyer is listed in property records as Pilchuck Corp., with attorney Navid Aminzadeh as the signatory. Attorney James C. Kennedy i上海千花网龙凤论坛 上海千花社区s the signatory for the seller.

The apartment spans roughly 上海贵族宝贝论坛 上海贵族宝贝6,200 square feet and includes private elevator access. The unit also has a home automation system, to control audio/visual, lighting and motorized shades. One57’s amenities include a full catering kitchen and access to all services at the Park Hyatt Hotel.

Other One57 sellers this year have also taken losses. In March, one seller lost roughly $6 million on a unit that sold for $21.5 million. In May, Canadian billionaire Lawrence Stroll took a lo爱上海 爱上海同城手机版ss on the apartm爱上海同城对对碰 爱上海同城论坛ent he bought in 2014. His sale closed at $54 million, less than the $55.6 million he paid for it.

Meanwhile, Extell Development resorted to discounting sponsor units at the supertall — amid the luxury market slowdown. CEO Gary Barnett has previously said it made sense to do it, since his competition was also cutting prices. The move also helps “clear the deck” for Extell’s upcoming Central Park Tower, he said.

New Manhattan Jail

The city is scrapping plans for a new 40-story lower Manhattan jail The plan faced local opposition

The city is no longer planning to build a 40-story jail in Lower Manhattan due to the i上海夜网论坛 上海夜网ssue of relocating tenants.

Officials said the plan for a jail at 80 Centre Street, which would have been on top of an existing building, has been scrapped, the New York Daily News reported. The city will instead go back to a previous plan to expand the Manhattan Detention Complex.

The complex on 125 White Street, which is also known as the Tombs, was thought to be too small. The city is now considering demolishing it and building a larger facility, the report said.

“We found that the challenges associated with relocating various offices at 80 Centre Street would make siting a jail there far more complicated and more costly than we originally anticipated,” said ma新上海贵族宝贝论坛 上海贵族宝贝交流区yoral spokesperson Natalie Grybauskas. “As we met with the community, it became clear that the original site we considered better爱上海 爱上海WIFI addressed thei上海贵族宝贝论坛 上海贵族宝贝r needs without the costly challen上海千花社区 上海千花网交友ges created by using 80 Centre.”

Mayor Bill de Blasio had supported the plan as part of his effort to close Rikers Island — but it faced community opposition for being close to Columbus Park. City Councilmember Margaret Chin, who represents the area, said she was pleased the plan for 80 Centre Street was off the table. [NYDN] — Meenal Vamburkar

Best Western

What the trade of this luxury hotel brand means for the hospitality industry Competition over “soft brands” has intensified in recent years

Frankfurt-based WorldHotels has been bought by U.S. megachain Best Western (Credit: iStock)

In what i上海同城对对碰交友社区 上海夜网论坛s thought to be the first deal of its kind, Best Western has acquired European indie hotel chain, WorldHotels.

The global hotel industry has been going through big changes in recent years, as online booking and homesharing cracked open new opportunities for independent hotels. In response, large hotel chains have launched doze上海夜网论坛 上海夜网ns of soft brands , semi-independen上海贵族宝贝交流区 上海贵族宝贝论坛t collections of hotels that can offer differentiated experiences to travelers. This week, Best Western upped the ante by buying outright independent luxury brand, WorldHotels, according to travel trade publication Skift.

Best Western s purchase is reportedly the first deal of this nature. The one comparable deal is believed to be Starwood Hotels Resorts acquisition of a nearly 50 percent stake in Design Hotels in 2011. (Starwood was acquired by Marriott in 2016.)

The WorldHotels acquisition comes two years after it was acquired by Ass上海千花社区 上海千花网交友ociated Luxury Hotels, a sales organization providing access to meeting spaces at hundreds of luxury hotels. The Frankfurt-based chain s portfolio includes more than 300 hotels and will continue to be marketed under their current identity, separate from Best Western.

Phoenix-based Best Western, founded in 194阿拉爱上海同城 爱上海龙凤419桑拿6, has more than 4,200 hotels worldwide. Starting in 2015, the chain entered the soft brand game by launching its own upscale brands such as BW Premier Collection, the SureStay Collection and the BW Signature Collection.

Independent hotels account for just 30 percent of the market in the U.S. and Canada, while they account for 60 percent of European hotels. [Skift] Kevin Sun
