Tags (Photo illustration by The Real Deal)Downtown Capital Partners, an alternative lender based in White Plains, New York, fired off a note to All Year Management and its founder, Yoel Goldman, last month: Cough up tens of millions of dollars of unpaid debt on a Gowanus development site or risk losing the property. The note from Downtown Capital threatening to take over the vacant site is one of several signs of All Year’s broader financial problems. The Brooklyn-based developer is also facing foreclosure on half of its massive Denizen luxury rental project at the site of the former Rheingold Brewery in Bushwick and was delisted from the Tel Aviv Stock Exchange in early January.Representatives for All Year and Downtown Capital did not return requests for comment.Downtown Capital is one of a growing number of nonbank lenders issuing warnings to struggling property owners. Others, including the Children’s Investment Fund, LoanCore and Eli Tabak’s Bluestone Group, have also sought to collect unpaid debts on high-interest loans. Nonbank lenders, including private equity firms, real estate investment trusts and debt funds, swooped in after the 2008 financial crisis and provided large loans at leverage points that banks couldn’t touch. Many quickly became the go-to lenders for construction financing in New York and other big markets — at notably higher interest rates than what banks like Wells Fargo and JPMorgan charge.But now a growing number of so-called hard-money lenders are facing a moment of reckoning with their troubled borrowers: Foreclose and take control of the assets, restructure the loans or find a new developer to finish the project. Some industry experts say it’s not a surprise that the projects financed by alternative lenders are now struggling.“There’s a reason that the regular banks don’t want to touch [many of these projects] with a 10-foot pole,” said Case Equity Partners’ Shlomo Chopp, who specializes in debt workouts.Children’s crossingAt one point, during the market rebound from the last crisis, virtually every lender had been trying to get a piece of the billions of dollars pouring into New York City’s luxury condo market. But few were thirstier than Children’s, whose lending arm is led by British financier Martin Fräss-Ehrfeld.The London-based hedge fund provided a whopping $5.7 billion in debt on 11 real estate projects in New York between 2011 and 2018, according to an analysis by The Real Deal. Children’s is known for issuing huge loans with interest rates as high as 10 percent.“They take more risk and they charge for that risk,” said David Eyzenberg, whose eponymous firm arranges financing for real estate projects around the country.Children’s largest debt deal was a $1.25 billion construction loan to Ziel Feldman’s HFZ Capital in 2017 for its luxury condo and hotel project, the XI, along Manhattan’s High Line. It was an ambitious agreement for both parties. To acquire the land, HFZ reportedly paid $870 million — roughly $1,100 a square foot and one of the priciest land deals in city history. The high acquisition cost and the hefty costs of financing left little room for error on profit margins.But now the music has stopped. Construction has come to a halt and the project is the center of lawsuits and liens, including one complaint by an affiliate of Children’s, which is seeking repayment of $160 million on two mezzanine loans it alleges are in default. Feldman and HFZ had personally guaranteed the loans, according to the lender’s lawsuit. The lender is now looking to find a new developer to take over the project, sources previously told TRD. Crain’s, citing a letter sent to subcontractors, reported that Zeckendorf and Suffolk Construction were in talks to take over the project. HFZ’s interim chief operating officer told Crain’s that HFZ was not talking with Zeckendorf and Suffolk about taking over the project. Representatives for Children’s and HFZ did not return requests for comment for this story. If Children’s is unable to get a developer to take over the project soon and HFZ cannot bring the XI across the finish line, the lender could face losses.Pressure pointsJust weeks into the pandemic, some nonbank lenders were heading into crisis mode. In late March, AG Mortgage Investment Trust faced margin calls from its own lenders, which claimed there was a sharp decline in the nonbank’s commercial mortgage-backed securities. Others like San Francisco-based TPG RE Finance Trust, led by industry veteran Greta Guggenheim, faced demands for additional capital. The lender’s stock price fell from around $20 pre-pandemic to a low of $2.52 in April.But then the Federal Reserve began pumping hundreds of billions of dollars into the broader marketplace by buying up mortgage-backed securities, and a handful of lenders were able to secure new funding from outside sources or sell off existing securities. In the meantime, the initial panic had subsided.AG Mortgage Investment Trust was able to reach an agreement with RBC to stop the margin calls. TPG RE Finance, meanwhile, scored $225 million in new capital from Starwood Capital and was able to sell off nearly $1 billion in commercial real estate debt. With more cash on hand, its stock has risen back to about half of its pre-pandemic price, at $10.68 per share as of Jan. 12. A representative for the company declined to comment.“There was distress for sure with margin calls,” said Brian Stoffers, CBRE’s global head of debt and structured finance. “But those were short-lived. And then we saw the nonbank lenders become quite active.” Distress signalsThe margin calls on nonbank lenders have dwindled since the spring. But some lenders still face the threat of financial losses, and in certain cases the value of the real estate may be less than the outstanding debt.Debra Morgan of BlackEagle Real Estate Partners, which provides debt restructuring services, said that if lenders want to recover their initial investment, their best option is often to work with the existing borrower as opposed to bringing in a new developer.“Ideally, working with [your] existing sponsor is the best recovery,” she said, “as long as your existing sponsor is a stand-up, good character dealing with a bad situation … Because didn’t you underwrite them and decide going in that they were creditworthy?”Alternative lenders, however, can operate differently from banks. They are not subject to the same regulatory scrutiny, which would require the loans to be marked down or additional capital to be raised. Another advantage is that many nonbank lenders are also developers.Firms like SL Green Realty, CIM Group and Mack Real Estate Group — which have all provided mezz loans on large New York projects — can complete the job themselves. In fact, these firms have all sought to foreclose on junior debt positions in distressed projects that would allow them to take over the properties.Most banks are not thinking about overseeing development projects, according to workout experts. “For a bank, a successful outcome is a repayment, not a foreclosure,” Morgan noted. To be sure, the distress in the marketplace is real. As of last November, more than 8 percent of all CMBS loans were delinquent by 30 days or more, up from 2.3 percent in the same period in 2019, according to Trepp.The projected selloffs of assets and loans at huge discounts, however, have not yet materialized — although more could be on the way.Josh Zegen, of the New York investment firm Madison Realty Capital, said many lenders have deferred loan payments instead of foreclosing on the assets. “There is a lot of hidden distress out there,” he said. “Borrowers are not being pushed to liquidate their properties, so you don’t have enough pressure to really know.”Zegen, whose firm recently announced it closed a new $1 billion fund to provide financing to alternative lenders on top of originating and buying real estate loans, maintained that Madison Realty is not as highly leveraged as its peers.Kingsley Greenland, CEO of the loan sale platform DebtX, said that while his company has seen an uptick in overall loan sales, many are trading at face value rather than at distressed pricing.“The pricing [for loan sales] has been incredibly high, and that is because so much money was raised,” Greenland said. “The risk profile doesn’t match the oversupply of capital.”For lenders like Children’s and Downtown Capital, this means the high-stakes game of making loans that banks wouldn’t touch in today’s market might not result in home runs, exactly. But it may not be the crushing loss that some are projecting, either.“I am surprised by the depth of the nonbank market,” said Stoffers. “It was wounded [last spring], but it has quickly recovered from its injuries.” Children’s Investment FundCommercial Real Estatemadison realty capitalReal Estate Finance Share on FacebookShare on TwitterShare on LinkedinShare via Email Share via Shortlink Share via Shortlink

Georgetown announced news of the lease Thursday.The building sits in a life-sciences corridor on the West Side that is becoming a hub for these kinds of companies.“This is just the beginning of demand for more life-science companies to move into this submarket, given the strength of other medical companies and institutions in this area of the Far West Side,” JLL’s Steven Rotter told The Real Deal. The building’s design and natural light are particularly attractive to life-science tenants, added Rotter, who represented Georgetown in the deal alongside colleague Peter Riguardi.ADVERTISEMENTAsking rent for the space was around $100 per square foot, according to a source. Rob Martin and Barbara Winter of JLL represented Mount Sinai in the deal.Mount Sinai’s new research facility will be used to study genome sequencing and genome development, proteomics and protein engineering as well as gene and cell editing. The facility will include an imaging center, an ambulatory surgery center and the hospital’s spine and breast centers.A portion of the space Mount Sinai took had previously been leased to short-term office provider IWG for its Spaces co-working brand. The company built out its center but never occupied the space, according to a source.Georgetown and Ackman’s Pershing Square Capital Management purchased the hulking building in 2015 for more than $250 million. Pershing Square’s headquarters is in the building, which is now 100 percent leased.

Continuous year round records of atmospheric sea-salt concentrations have been recovered at three coastal Antarctic stations (Halley, Dumont D’Urville, and Neumayer) at temporal resolutions typically between 1 day and 2 weeks. The records were evaluated in terms of their spatial and seasonal variability as well as with respect to changes in the relative ion composition of airborn sea-salt particles. Annual mean sea-salt concentrations vary between 1400 ng m−3 at Dumont D’Urville, 850 ng m−3 at Neumayer, and 200 ng m−3 at Halley, respectively. They are thus considerably lower than the mean levels previously observed at the north tip of the Antarctic Peninsula but are, at their lower end, comparable to the level previously reported from Mawson. The representativeness of the atmospheric sea-salt data appears to be weak due to their high temporal variability, strong impacts of site specific aspects (such as site topography) but also due to the nonuniform sampling techniques applied so far. In accordance with the ice core evidence, the seasonal change in the atmospheric sea-salt load is found to be clearly out of phase with the seasonal cycle of the open water fraction offshore from the station as (with the exception of Dumont D’Urville) the lowest concentrations are generally observed during the local summer months. Major ion analyses of bulk aerosol and concurrently sampled fresh snow show a strong, systematic depletion of the SO42− to Na+ (Cl−) ratios with respect to bulk sea water, which appeared to be confined to the local winter half year. During that time, sea-salt SO42− was found to be depleted typically by 60–80% along with a concurrent Na+ deficit, which is in accordance with the precipitation of mirabilite. No significant fractionation of Mg2+, K+, and Ca2+ between seawater and sea-salt particles is observed. Laboratory experiments failed to simulate the SO42− fractionation in airborne seawater droplets or in the skin of seawater bubbles at low air temperatures. They gave, however, SO42− depletion factors, similar to the field observation in air and snow, in the remaining brine of seawater which was partly frozen below −8°C to an artificial sea ice surface. It is suggested therefore that the mobilization of brine from the sea ice surface constitutes an important sea-salt source in winter which may dominate the atmospheric sea-salt load at high latitudes of coastal Antarctica.
Biogenic influences on the composition and characteristics of aerosol were investigated on Bird Island (54°00′ S, 38°03′ W) in the South Atlantic during November and December 2010. This remote marine environment is characterised by large seabird and seal colonies. The chemical composition of the submicron particles, measured by an aerosol mass spectrometer (AMS), was 21% non-sea-salt sulfate, 2% nitrate, 8% ammonium, 22% organics and 47% sea salt including sea salt sulfate. A new method to isolate the sea spray signature from the high-resolution AMS data was applied. Generally, the aerosol was found to be less acidic than in other marine environments due to the high availability of ammonia, from local fauna emissions. By positive matrix factorisation five different organic aerosol (OA) profiles could be isolated: an amino acid/amine factor (AA-OA, 18% of OA mass), a methanesulfonic acid OA factor (MSA-OA, 25%), a marine oxygenated OA factor (M-OOA, 41%), a sea spray OA fraction (SS-OA, 7%) and locally produced hydrocarbon-like OA (HOA, 9%). The AA-OA was dominant during the first two weeks of November and found to be related with the hatching of penguins in a nearby colony. This factor, rich in nitrogen (N : C ratio = 0.13), has implications for the biogeochemical cycling of nitrogen in the area as particulate matter is often transported over longer distances than gaseous N-rich compounds. The MSA-OA was mainly transported from more southerly latitudes where phytoplankton bloomed. The bloom was identified as one of three sources for particulate sulfate on Bird Island, next to sea salt sulfate and sulfate transported from South America. M-OOA was the dominant organic factor and found to be similar to marine OA observed at Mace Head, Ireland. An additional OA factor highly correlated with sea spray aerosol was identified (SS-OA). However, based on the available data the type of mixture, internal or external, could not be determined. Potassium was not associated with sea salt particles during 19% of the time, indicating the presence of biogenic particles in addition to the MSA-OA and AA-OA factors.

Written by FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailABC(NEW YORK) — When Carolina Panthers fullback Alex Armah is on the field, his main job is to fight through tackles. He didn’t expect to be doing that to a stranger breaking into his car.The 24-year-old NFL player, who comes in at 6-foot-2, 250 pounds, recently purchased the Owl Car Cam for his Dodge Charger. It’s a cloud-based security camera with a subscription service.The camera, which mounts on the car’s dashboard, has both inward and outward facing cameras, like similar products on the market, and connects to an app. The app alerts the user’s phone if the user’s vehicle is in a crash, dented or broken into, even if the user is not inside or nearby. In February, Armah said he got an “instant notification” on his phone from the Owl app and when he opened it, he said he watched in real-time as a stranger broke into his car. It was all captured on video through the camera.“I see someone in my car, and that’s when the adrenaline starts running,” he said.Armah decided to run toward his car, where he saw the alleged thief trying to leave the premises. Authorities say people should never apprehend a suspect themselves, but Armah said the alleged suspect tried to make a run for it. He said he caught up to him and restrained him with a grappling move called the “armbar.”With the Owl Cam, Armah not only had footage of what the suspect looked like, but he also had a video of what appeared to be the suspect breaking into his car, which Armah was able to turn over to police.“We have the guy’s picture, we have what he was doing in my car… so it’s really undisputed,” Armah said. “Literally caught red-handed.”Armah, the son of an immigrant father from Ghana, said he bought a Dodge Charger with his first NFL paycheck. That car was just broken into in December, he said, so he decided then to invest in some security. “I mean, windows shattered, glass hanging out on my paint, scraped up my side of my car,” he said. “You just feel very violated, and I felt like it’s just disgusting to see your own property like that. Something you worked hard to get. You finally get it and someone physically went through your car, tampered with your personal items. You just feel very violated.”The alleged thief that broke into Armah’s car was arrested and charged with breaking or entering into a motor vehicle. He was released on bond and is due in court later this month.Andy Hodge, the founder and CEO of the company, said they have received positive feedback on their camera system. “We hear the story over and over again — where someone calls up the police and say, ‘Hey, my car got broken into, ‘Well we can’t do much about that,’ ‘I have video,’ ‘Well the videos we get aren’t very good. But then they send the video from the Owl Camera and the police say, ‘We’ve never seen video like this, we can see exactly who it is,” Hodge said.Owl has been around for a couple of years and sells for $350 — $250 for the camera and about $100 for the first year of service. Devices like Owl are part of a growing smart device market to catch would-be thieves in the act.For Hodge, one story that has stuck with him of Owl helping a customer get out of a scary situation involved a woman who he said was named Jennifer.“Two guys came up to her, said they had a gun,” he said. “She thought…to walk in front of the car, pulled the two of them in the range of the camera. She points at it, she says, ‘Do you really want to do this?’ And they back off. And in less than an hour, those two guys were both arrested.”The company said they have seen people post their Owl videos on social media, using crowdsourcing to help identify alleged suspects.“I definitely think it’s going to be a huge advantage,” said Armah, who is not currently being sponsored by Owl. “[Criminals] will think twice for sure.”Armah, Hodge and the authorities do not condone people going after alleged suspects themselves. If you see something happening with your car, call 911.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.
