Top developers on their reasons for doubling down in South Florida market

first_imgFor some Miami developers, the last few months have provided an opportunity to “double down.”“Our affordable division is extremely active,” Jon Paul Pérez, executive vice president of Related Group, said during The Real Deal’s latest episode of Coffee Talks. Pérez noted that Related has broken ground on three projects in the last 45 days.Another guest on the episode, Dezer Development founder Gil Dezer, also remains bullish on building across Miami.Last week, Dezer received the first approval for a massive project at North Miami Beach’s Intracoastal Mall, despite opposition.When asked about financing for the project, Dezer said that his company has been covering all costs. “We don’t have financing today, but we don’t necessarily need it today either,” he noted.For Pérez and Related — the largest developer in South Florida — there are opportunities away from the luxury beachfront markets. “We’re very bullish in Wynwood,” he said. “I think that’s one of the neighborhoods that has the most growth potential.” He noted that Related owns four sites there, which it will transform into 2,000 units, and is finishing a new headquarters in Coconut Grove.The pair are competitors and collaborators: Dezer and Related teamed up on the Residences by Armani/Casa last year. Closings began in December 2019, and Dezer said it was just in time:  “We had our opening party, and a week later, Covid happened. Sometimes you have more luck than brains.”Watch the video above for more top developer takes on the Miami market. This content is for subscribers only.Subscribe Nowlast_img read more

John Lennon and Yoko Ono’s former Palm Beach estate sells for $36M

first_img Full Name* Email Address* Yoko Ono and John Lennon with 720 South Ocean Boulevard (Getty Images; Zillow)The Palm Beach estate formerly owned by the late John Lennon and Yoko Ono sold for $36 million, five months after it was listed for sale.Former Bear Stearns executive John Sites and his wife Cindy sold the oceanfront property at 720 South Ocean Boulevard, according to the Multiple Listing Service. It hit the market in May for $47.5 million with Christian Angle of Christian Angle Real Estate. Dana Koch and Paulette Koch of the Corcoran Group represented the buyer.A young family from the Northeast purchased the estate, according to the Wall Street Journal.The late Beatle and his singer-songwriter-artist wife paid $725,000 for the mansion in January 1980, and Lennon was killed in December of the same year. Ono sold the 1.3-acre property in 1986 for $3.2 million.The home was designed by architect Addison Mizner and originally built in 1920.ADVERTISEMENTThe Sites paid $23 million for the seven-bedroom, 14,000-square-foot mansion in 2016. The property includes a tennis court, two swimming pools, a beachfront cabana and 180 feet of ocean frontage. It also features a three-car garage, nine bathrooms, three half-bathrooms, an oceanfront owner’s wing and a grand salon with a wet bar.Though Lennon and Ono owned the mansion together for less than a year, they had time to make headlines in Palm Beach. “Pop Culture Florida” author James P. Goss wrote in his book that Lennon and Ono were once turned away from The Breakers because their companions weren’t wearing neckties.The sale of the waterfront estate adds to a number of closings in Palm Beach. Buyers are snatching up luxury properties shortly after they hit the market, as the pandemic fuels demand. Just last week, the non-waterfront home at 201 El Vedado Road sold for nearly $21 million.Nearby in North Palm Beach, billionaire Russell Weiner recently flipped the North Palm Beach homes he acquired in September from Elin Nordegren, the ex-wife of golfer Tiger Woods. He sold them for more than $48 million, marking a 45 percent gain in one month.Contact Katherine Kallergiscenter_img Message*last_img read more

University installs new organ in Basilica

first_imgAlthough there are many weddings during the summer, there weren’t any scheduled in the Basilica of the Sacred Heart during the first two weeks of August. Nor were there any Masses. From Aug. 1 to Aug. 14, the Basilica was closed so a new organ could be installed.Peter St. John The efforts to replace the organ were led by associate director of music and choir Andrew McShane; rector of the Basilica Fr. Peter Rocca; and the late Gail Walton, former director of music. The new organ was funded by Wayne and Diana Murdy. McShane said the process of replacing the old organ began 10 years ago, due to increasing maintenance costs.“It was the cost of the upkeep of the organ that was the main factor,” McShane said. “We were spending thousands of dollars a year just to service the organ, but that wasn’t the only problem with it. There were some design flaws, mainly the winding, and, also, the organ was never really big enough for the Basilica. So when you would have a big crowd, like on Easter or Christmas or [a] football weekend, people from basically the altar area to the Lady Chapel really couldn’t hear. It just was not an adequate-sized organ for the space of the Basilica.”Professor of organ Craig Cramer, who served on the committee for the new organ, said the University’s administration was very supportive of the project.“The administration was really aware of the ongoing mechanical problems and inadequacies of the old instrument,”  Cramer said.  “I don’t think it took a lot of convincing. I think the problem was more just one of ‘How do we want to do this project?’ so that we really do it right and don’t compromise the instrument.”Cramer said this process can take some time.“You have to have meetings with the administration,” Cramer said. “You have to explain your position vis-a-vis the old organ, and you have to educate all concerned about what an organ is, what it could be, what it should do, what its role is in the liturgy and then you just come up with a plan.”According to an email from McShane, the organ is equipped with 5,164 pipes, four keyboards — each of which have 58 notes and 30 pedals — as well as an air conditioning system to keep the temperature consistent throughout. It was built by Paul Fritts and Company and took 1,100 hours to design and 36,000 man hours to install.Michael Plagerman, a graduate student in the Master of Sacred Music program who is studying the organ, said he believes these features will allow the organ to be used for a diverse array of music.“The main advantage of this new organ is that it is very large, more than twice the size of the instrument it replaces,” Plagerman said. “A much wider variety of literature can be able to be played on it and a much wider variety of both choral and congregational accompaniments will be possible, in the liturgy itself and it will become, I think, a major recital instrument for our program.”The organ is currently in the process of tuning and voicing, McShane said, and will not be completed until Thanksgiving. It will be dedicated on the feast day of Fr. Basil Moreau and will be blessed by Bishop Daniel Jenky.Tags: Basilica, Basilica of the Sacred Heart, Murdy Family Organ, new organ, organlast_img read more

Tax court ruling and IRS rollover guidance don’t add up

first_imgby. Todd Berghuis, AscensusA recent U.S. Tax Court ruling has set a lot of heads spinning in the IRA administration world, running counter as it does to more than two decades of IRS guidance.  In the case Bobrow v. Commissioner, the Court looked at a situation where the taxpayer, Mr. Bobrow, had made two IRA rollovers within a 12-month period.  Each rollover consisted of assets distributed from a different IRA.  The Court disallowed Bobrow’s IRA rollover on the grounds that he was limited to one rollover per taxpayer per 12-month period, not one rollover per IRA.Why is this ruling drawing so much attention?  Primarily because it runs completely contrary to long-issued guidance provided by the IRS, the very agency that is now advocating this new position without any prior warning.  The ability to execute IRA rollovers on a one-per-IRA basis has been described in detail in IRS Publication 590, Individual Retirement Arrangements (IRAs), for at least 20 years, that evidence readily available even now at the IRS’s own web site.  It is not conveyed in a mere statement, but in detailed examples provided to explain the sometimes-misunderstood rollover limitations.  The IRS’s own model IRA documents, on which millions of IRAs are based, state in their instructions “For more information on IRAs…see Pub. 590…”It is relevant to share the IRS’s own unequivocal guidance on the subject here.  Looking back to 1994, the oldest version of Publication 590 posted at the IRS web site, we find the following.  “You can take a distribution from an IRA and make a rollover contribution to another IRA only once in any one-year period.  … This rule applies separately to each IRA you own.  For  example, if you have two IRAs, IRA–1 and IRA–2, and you roll over assets of IRA–1 into a new IRA–3, you may also make a rollover from IRA–2 into IRA–3, or into any other IRA within one year after the rollover distribution from IRA–1. These are both rollovers because you have not received more than one distribution from either IRA within one year.”  The examples, now even more detailed, continue in Publication 590 up to the most current version. continue reading » ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more
