New York REIT Gets Public Listing in Latest for Schorsch Empire
(Bloomberg) -- A New York landlord led by Nicholas Schorsch is set to become the first publicly traded real estate company focused solely on the city when its shares are listed on the New York Stock Exchange today.
New York REIT Inc. has bought properties valued at about $2.7 billion, mostly in Manhattan, since 2010, when it began as a nonlisted real estate investment trust sponsored by Schorsch’s AR Capital. Schorsch is the biggest fundraiser in the nontraded REIT industry. About $350 million in purchases are planned for this year as the company expands its holdings, which include a stake in Worldwide Plaza, a 49-story office tower on Eighth Avenue in Midtown.   more »
