Development

All successful real estate developments are like a jigsaw puzzle.  For the project to succeed, all the pieces need to fit into place.  Working as strategic advisors, our attorneys leverage their extensive development experience to counsel clients through all phases of different projects from inception to completion.  These projects include office buildings, residential structures, hotels and shopping centers, makes us uniquely qualified to understand and bring successful resolutions to the seemingly endless issues that emerge in the development process.

Our representations include some of the real estate industry’s most prominent transactions:
 

  • Representation of Sterling Equities (owners of the New York Mets) in a sweeping $3 billion project to develop 23 acres of the Iron Triangle near Citi Field in Willets Point
  • Representing a development team comprised of Taconic Investment Partners, L&M Development Partners and BFC Partners selected by the City of New York to develop Essex Crossing, nine city-owned sites located on six acres primarily along Essex Street and Delancey Street on the Lower East Side of Manhattan
  • Representing KNIC Partners LLP in the redevelopment of Kingsbridge Armory in the Bronx into the world’s largest ice sports complex
  • Representation of Young Woo & Associates in the redevelopment of Pier 57 and Manhattan’s Westside
  • Representing Silverstein Properties in the proposed development of Towers 2, 3 and 4 of the World Trade Center after providing counsel on the $3.2 billion World Trade Center leasehold transaction in July 2001

Stroock’s unique experience can devise a plan to move the development forward to fruition.  Not only do we assist clients in acquiring a site, but our multidisciplinary real estate services also meet a range of complementary needs.  Our condominium expertise enables us to create the appropriate ownership structure; our land use experience enables us to address all of the project’s land use issues; our finance team allows us to favorably negotiate the terms of both the construction and permanent financing for the project; our experience in the formation of joint ventures enables us to negotiate the partnership arrangement between the various venture participants, and our experience with governmental incentive programs enables us to determine the maximum financial assistance that may be available to the project.

We are at the forefront of the ever changing industry trends involved in the development process, a prime reason why Stroock is one of only a select group of firms qualified to represent a developer or investor in the complex world of real property development.
