President-elect Donald Trump spent a good chunk of his campaign bashing China and promised to reset the United States’ relationship with the country if he came to power. But many of his fellow developers, gathered in Shanghai for The Real Deal’s annual showcase, said that despite his heated rhetoric, Trump is a pragmatist who understands the importance of Chinese investment, particularly in real estate.
“The reality is that our president-elect’s platform is absolutely pro-business and anti-regulation,” said HFZ Capital Group’s Ziel Feldman, who added that the industry had been waiting for the last eight years to have “friendly local governments backed by a friendly federal government.”
Don Peebles, head of the Peebles Corporation, said Trump would be a boon for the real estate capital markets. Cities like Miami and New York are facing a tight construction financing landscape, and part of what’s causing it is heavy regulation, he said. Trump would deregulate the financial sector and encourage foreign investment from China and elsewhere, Peebles predicted.
“I can assure you that the EB-5 program will be extended for a longer period of time,” he said, and his optimism on the popular immig[……]

Governor Andrew Cuomo wants to sell a 170,000-square-foot building used by the City University of New York in Hell’s Kitchen to help “of上海夜网 fset” a reduction in CUNY funding in his proposed budget.
The six-story building at 450 West 41st Street, between Ninth and 10th avenues, is used to house Hunter College’s Master of Fine Arts program, Politico reported.
Cuomo wants to sell the property in order to help offset a 5.2-percent reduction in state funding in his preliminary budget for CUNY’s senior colleges上海千花社区 , from $1.21 billion in fiscal year 2017 to $1.14 billion in fiscal year 2018, a reduction of $63 million.
If the state sells the building, as much as $60 million of the sale’s proceeds could go to senior colleges, provided that they shall reduce the state s net operating expense liability in an equal amount.
The expected sale of certain CUNY capital assets will result in available resources to partially offset State support for CUNY, according to the governor s financial plan.
The property sits next to Covenant House New York, a shelter for homeless youth that the New York City Economic Development Corporation proposed to sell to developers last spring.

New bill seeks to force landlords to disclose bedbug infestations City Council is expected to approve bill on Tuesday

Landlords are bugging out over a new bill that would force them to further disclose bedbug infestations in their buildings.
The City Council is expected to approve t上海同城对对碰交友社区 he bill on Tuesday, the New York Post reported. The measure requires landlords to file histories of bedbug infestations with the Department of Housing Preservation and Development. Landlords would also be required to either post the histories in their building or distribute them to tenants. They don t have to specify what units are infested, just how many have a track record of insect infestation.
“Thi爱上海同城对对碰 s bill will needlessly alarm tenants that would otherwise not have to be concerned or be worried about an infestation in their building,” Joseph Strasburg, president of the Rent Stabilization Association, told the Post. “This bill is just more regulation overkill.”
The law already requires landlords to notify new tenants of infestations, but the new bill would also require disclosures when leases are 爱上海同城手机版 renewed.
“What we were finding out was that a number of the people were [on] renewal leases,” Council member Danny Dromm, the bill s sponsor, said. “So what we wanted to do was to fix it so that those who have renewal leases could also find out whether there were bedbugs in their building.” [NYP] — Kathryn Brenzel

Daily Mail writes down Xceligent’s value to zero amid “disappointing” NYC上海千花网论坛 expansion Owners are also considering a sale of EDR
DMGT CEO Paul Zwillenberg and Doug Curry
Daily Mail and General Trust wrote down the carrying value of its real estate data subsidiary Xceligent to zero amid lower-than-expected revenues from a push into New York City, the company said Thursday morning.
“Quite candidly the revenues were disappointing and that suggests a longer and more challenging path for Xcelige上海贵族宝贝论坛 nt to profitability,” DMGT’s CFO Tim Collier said during an earnings presentation.
“We’re working with the management team on a strategic review that will include all options,” he added.
DMGT also announced that it is in the process of selling EDR, its U.S. real estate environmental data and software business.
In October, DMGT fired 阿爱上海同城 Xceligent’s CEO and co-founder Doug Curry and installed the former Hanley Wood CEO Frank Anton as executive chairman.
The data subsidiary is waging a high-stakes legal battle against its chief rival, CoStar. In December, CoStar filed a copyright infringement lawsuit against Xceligent, alleging that its competitor systematically stole its property images. Xceligent responded by filing an antitrust lawsuit in June. DMGT said it spent £14 million ($19 million) in legal fees in the past year and that this was “principally” due to Xceligent.
Last year, Xceligent launched an expansion into New York City, CoStar’s most important market.
