Meridian Capital Group announced today that its Institutional Investment Sales Group, led by Helen Hwang, has been tapped to sell the fee simple interest in The Denizen, a 1,000-unit, two-building complex located in the Bushwick neighborhood of Brooklyn, NY. Completed in phases between 2018 and 2019, The Denizen is one of New York City’s most amenitized rental buildings offering over 100,000 square feet of amenity space.Situated on the former Rheingold Brewery site, The Denizen spans two full city blocks and is comprised of a nine-story building at 54 Noll Street and an eight-story building at 123 Melrose Street. In addition to its unparalleled amenities, which include an indoor pool, bowling lounge, rooftop farm, and gym with a rock-climbing wall, boxing ring and spin studio, The Denizen offers tenants a strong value proposition with rents 20% below Brooklyn waterfront neighborhoods. Given its price point, multiple lounge spaces that are ideal for work from home, and its proximity to Midtown Manhattan, The Denizen is an asset that is best suited for a post-Covid recovery. Designed by renowned architect ODA and developed by All Year Management, The Denizen has won numerous awards for its design and architecture, including ULI’s Excellence in Market Rate Housing Development in 2019. Artfully designed to cater to the neighborhood’s young and creative population, which continues to move east in Brooklyn along the L-train, The Denizen features fifteen seven-story murals created by local artists, which open into the building’s multiple landscaped courtyards. The Denizen also includes 130,000 square feet of commercial space and a 450-space parking garage. The 80/20 building benefits from a 25-year 421a tax abatement.Helen Hwang, Senior Executive Managing Director of Meridian’s Institutional Investment Sales group can be reached at (212) 468-5930 or [email protected]
IndyCar Series owner David Letterman walks to the starting grid before the Indianapolis 500.SPEEDWAY, Ind. — American sports events often observe moments of silence. Rarely are they completely silent.Almost inevitably, those moments of silence are interrupted by a loudmouth who feels the need to yell something.A notable exception, however, came on the grid at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, just shortly before the start of the Indianapolis 500. From a short speech by a military leader to Florence Henderson’s rendition of “God Bless America,” through a 21-gun salute and the playing of “Taps,” the front-stretch crowd stayed remarkably silent — a sign that fans were aware of the meaning of Memorial Day, even during the world’s largest one-day sporting event.Pre-race performers knew, too.“The sound check this morning was calm and OK but now there’s a lot of people so it’s going to be a little nerve-wracking,” said singer Danielle Bradbury, before singing “America the Beautiful.” “They have told me the troops are going to walk in front and face me. It’s going to be an honor for me to stand up there and be able to do that.”DALY: Fire in car dooms day before race starts Beyond the respectful pause to salute members of the military, the pre-race grid — the place where cars and fans gather to see and be seen in the hours before the command to start engines — was about as busy and hectic as ever.There was one semi-awkward moment during the pre-race festivities, as Speedway chairperson Mari Hulman George appeared to brush away a woman who leaned in to help with her traditional “start your engines” command.David Letterman, an IndyCar team owner who hosted his final late-night talk show earlier in the week, was mobbed by fans with cell phone cameras — so much so that he had to be escorted off the grid by State Troopers well before the start of the race. Letterman, a native of Indiana, got a huge ovation from the crowd before he left the grid.Meanwhile, driver Oriol Servia’s car was painted with a congratulatory message for Letterman and some team members wore commemorative T-shirts with a “top 10” list on the back (No. 8: “Seldom gets on the radio and asks Graham to ‘floor it,’ ” a reference to team driver Graham Rahal.)Another native of Indiana, NASCAR superstar Jeff Gordon, also got a rousing round of applause before heading off to drive the pace car. Walking the grid with his family, occasionally interrupted by fans trying to take “selfies,” Gordon briefly met with driver Townsend Bell before Bell got into his car. Bell is running a No. 24 car with a collage in the cockpit to salute Gordon, who is retiring from full-time NASCAR duties at the end of the season.Jeff Gordon and his children Ella Sofia and Leo on the starting grid for the 99th Indianapolis 500.Meanwhile, four-time Indianapolis 500 winner A.J. Foyt was able to amble around relatively unaccosted. Recently recovered from heart surgery, but feisty as ever, Foyt shook hands with well-wishers and warmly greeted friends on the grid.Injured driver James Hinchcliffe also was on fans’ minds, as a few wore “Get well 5oon Hinch” t-shirts, with Hinchcliffe’s No. 5 in the place of the “s.” His car, being driven by substitute driver Ryan Briscoe, also carried a get-well message for Hinchcliffe, who had to have emergency surgery on his leg after a crash earlier this month and is out indefinitely.Driver introductions, held on a stage near the famous yard of bricks at the start/finish line, provided an impromptu gauge of driver popularity. Among the biggest ovations were for Ryan Hunter-Reay, Rahal, Ed Carpenter and Marco Andretti. The strongest driver ovations were for a pair of Brazilian IndyCar veterans, Helio Castroneves and Tony Kanaan. Several drivers wore Go Pro-style cameras on the brims of their hats during introductions, presumably capturing the moment to share later.But one of the biggest ovations of the morning was reserved for a stream of military members who were paraded around the 2.5-mile oval in the back of pickup trucks before the race. After a rousing round of applause, the crowd briefly broke into a “U-S-A” chant.
