Local business owners and residents banded together to restore and revitalize their neighborhood, resulting in the creation of the Grand Central Partnership.

Today, the neighborhood surrounding Grand Central Station is thriving again. The Partnership is frequently cited as an example of successful neighborhood revitalization, both at home and abroad. The people of midtown Manhattan continue to support their neighborhood through the Partnership, and now use the network to plan events, boost tourism revenues, and keep the flourishing heart of New York lively and fun.

As the owner, chairman, and CEO of Monday Properties–a real estate property firm in New York City–Anthony E. Westreich is responsible for leading the entirety of the firm’s business activities; this role includes dealing with major leasing and capital transactions. An engaged participant in his professional field, Anthony Westreich is a member of the Real Estate Board of New York.

The Real Estate Board of New York (REBNY), together with the administration of Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo, reportedly had talks in August 2016 to discuss resurrecting an old housing project known as 421-A that would offer more affordable housing for low to moderate-income earning families of New York City.

The proposal that was sent to developers stated that they would be required to provide below-market housing that would entail setting aside 20 to 30 percent of units per project for this purpose. Although there is no clear-cut plan on how 421-A will be financed and managed, union leaders expressed the sentiment that wage subsidies and tax-abatement may be viable resolutions to the issue. For now, it is up to the REBNY to decide on the matter.

Anthony Westreich Foresees Increased Acquisitions in the D.C. Market

Anthony Westreich is a longtime real estate executive who guides Monday Properties as CEO and chairman. The firm has extensive commercial property holdings spanning New York and Washington, D.C. Speaking recently with Real Estate Finance and Investment, Anthony Westreich emphasized that the firm has been undertaking New York sales such as the $1.2 billion office tower 230 Park Avenue as part of an overall strategy of value creation.

Mr. Westreich is still fairly skeptical about New York values, which have resulted in the firm being positioned as a net seller in that market for three years running. At the same time as New York office divestments have continued, Monday Properties maintains an extensive portfolio of greater Washington, D.C., properties.

The firm is closely watching the Washington, D.C., market for recovery signs that will signal a new acquisition trend. Mr. Westreich is convinced that the next several quarters will reflect the effects of the area’s net population growth and absorption, and see significant leasing market improvements. At the same time, a large amount of debt tied to commercial mortgage-backed securities will mature in 2016 and 2017, which will create vital investment partnership opportunities.
