TRIPLE PLAY PARTY
Want to get a jump start on upcoming deals? Meet the major New York City players at one of our upcoming events!
|Pop-up restaurant Celsius offers not only a toasty place to watch the cold-yet-fun-loving souls at Bryant Park's ice rink but also a great spot for some post-holiday networking. We joined MBA, AREW, and Appraisal Institute and respective presidents Michael Fletcher of JPMorgan Chase, Jennifer Carey of JLC Environmental Consultants, and Theresa Nygard of KTR Real Estate Advisors for their shindig last week. Jennifer says her firm is working on two green energy research projects: a biomass fuel cell and a smart grid. Theresa tells us she also ran into Bob Pollack (now an attorney at Marcus and Pollack), who hired her for her first job at Ralph Marx Real Estate. (Last time someone ran into us, we dropped our camera and stenopad, so we hope Bob stayed upright.)|
|We also snapped ACC Construction CEO Michelle Medaglia, Newmark Knight Frank's Robin Fisher, JLL's Laini Marie Rey, Alexander Marketing's Linda Alexander, and Rhodes Associates partner Jane Lyons. Robin tells us she recently repped Links of London in a full-floor lease at 359 Lex and Bridgewater Advisors in a full floor at Rockefeller Center, a deal that included a sublease of Bridgewater's space at 489 Fifth Ave to The Valence Group. Laini, a project manager, worked on all three Manhattan Uniqlos (that was "a heck of a week" when the 34th Street and Fifth Avenue ones opened). Lately, she says, her work has been taking her to Latin America quite a bit.|
|Alan Gaynor + Co prez Michele Boddewyn, colleague Julie Geffke, Leitner Group's Joel Leitner, and Brown Harris Stevens' Sharon Locatell). Michele tells us her clients are cautiously optimistic this year will be better than last. We'd say with the Giants' post-season wins, we're off to a good start. Want us to snap your event? Guide us to the red wine and beef satay.|
