World-Wide Group – Acquisition/Financing/Lease

Represented the World-Wide Group in the acquisition and financing of 209-217 East 63rd Street in New York City from Manhattan Eye, Ear and Throat Hospital ("MEETH"). The hospital was subdivided into separate tax lots, and World Wide purchased the MEETH annex on 63rd Street and Third Avenue. The acquisition was financed by a $36 million mortgage loan from Helaba. Concurrent with the acquisition, we represented World Wide in a lease with The New York City School Construction Authority, which was then assigned to the Board of Education of the City of New York. The property will be developed by World-Wide as a temporary facility for the public schools that will be demolished and rebuilt by World-Wide in their ongoing project on 57th Street.
