The city’s affordable housing lottery between 2013 and 2015 was more likely to be won by young singles, according to data released by the Department of Housing Preservation and Development. And many of those young whippersnappers have developers to thank.
More than half of the 48 housing lotteries for 1,470 available units across the city between January 2013 through to the end of 2015 were one-bedrooms and studios. Just over 40 percent of the winners in those lotteries were people aged 25 to 34, and half of those people were single, DNAinfo reported. The news website found that only 4 percent of the winners were over 62 years old. Just 11 percent were under the age of 25.
According to the website,上海夜网 the city would not release the total number of applicants it received for the housing lotteries. However, the data showed the immense demand. In 2015, for example, 200,000 people applied for 14 apartments in Bushwick.
A spokesperson for HPD told DNAinfo that in some cases eligibility requirements are determined by landlords. Developers have the right to set what credits score minimums the上海千花网 y will allow for a tenant.
Sarah Desmond, the executive director of advocacy group Housing Conservation Coordinators, told the website that the lottery doesn’t have enough family-sized apartments.

Equity Residential: NYC rental market is weakening Apartment landlord blames weak job growth, supply surge
David Santee and 140, 160 and 180 Riverside Boulevard
Equity Residentia上海夜网论坛 l s outlook on its New York rental market continues to look gloomy, with the real estate company on Wednesday bemoaning falling rents and rising concessions in the Big Apple.
While most other markets in the country, especially Los Angeles, are strong, the real estate investment trust expects its revenues in New York to fall by 1.8 percentage points in 2017. Same-store profits had fallen by 3.1 percent in 2016. The culprit: growing supply thanks to new construction, and mediocre growth in high-paying jobs.
“Financial services are contracting and tech job growth has stalled,” the company’s COO David Santee said in the fourth-quarter 2016 earnings call, adding that most new jobs in New York are in low-paying sectors like retail and hospitality. That drives rents down and concessions up.
The company has budgeted $4 million for concessions in 2017 in New York a figure no other market comes close to (it budgeted around $90,000 for Washington, D.C. and $80,000 for Seattle). “We are already hearing some crazy stuff like three and four months free on 12-month leases,” Santee said, speaking of the market more broadly.
The company also set aside money for gift cards, but will only use it when “absolutely necessary.”
“The爱上海同城 first line of defense is rates, second concessions and last gif上海千花网 t cards,” Santee[……]

A conversation with Tracy Tutor Maltas, the newest star of “Million Dollar Listing LA” The Douglas Elliman broker talks aspirational pricing, being the first female cast member and more
In May, Elizabeth Ann Stribling-Kivlan lamented the lack of female brokers on Bravo’s “Million Dollar Listing” franchise in an op-ed for Inman News.
“[C]an’t Million Dollar Listing New York or Million Dollar Listing Los Angeles feature at least one female agent?” the Stribling Associates president wrote.
It appears, at long last, they can.

How’d you get your start in the business? I came out of USC as a theater major. I was waiting tables and auditioning and decided that wasn’t for me anymore. I went to work for my dad in the constructi上海夜网 on business and I realized I didn’t really like it as much as I liked sales. A friend of mine got into real estate and I ended up sitting down with the manager at Sotheby’s and said to myself, ‘I think I can do this.’ We met for lunch and that’s where it began. I kind of fell into it, to be honest.
Solar power is heading to Stuy Town上海千花网龙凤论坛 .
Blackstone Group and Ivanhoé Cambridge, which teamed up two years ago to buy Stuyvesant Town and Peter Cooper Village for $5.3 billion, will spen爱上海同城论坛 d more than $10 million to bring almost 10,000 solar panels to the rooftops of 56 buildings in the apartm上海龙凤论坛 ent com上海千花网 plex, according to the Wall Street Journal. The panels will supply enough power for roughly 1,000 apartments each year.
Blackstone says it has generated about $100 million in value from energy cost saving proj上海贵族宝贝论坛 ects so far, although the solar power effort is unlikely to give the company a strong return on investment given the cost of installing panels on buildings and the amount of power they produce.
Mayor Bill de Blasio—who was just reelected on Tuesday—set a goal for the city earlier this year to install 1 gigawatt of solar capacity by 2030, which would enable it to power 250,000 homes.
Blackstone president Tony James recently said in his company’s quarterly earnings media call that he still sees plenty of opportunities in U.S. real estate. [WSJ] – Eddie Small

Town New Development is suing entities tied to New Empire Real Estate Development, claiming Bentley Zhao s firm stiffed the brokerage out of $210,000 in consulting fees and a $2.2 million termination fee.
The breach-of-contract suit, filed Thursday, is connected to Town s work on 131 East 47th Street, where New Empire is planning a 122-unit condominium tower. According to court documents, Town is seeking money owed plus $5.45 million in damages.
