Equity commitments will be invested in the $230Mmixed-use office project BPG secures critical equity capital commitments for FNB Financial Center

ITTSBURGH, PA — The largest mixed-use, multi-tenant office proj - ect in the city of Pittsburgh has completed its financing re - quirements to advance toward construction, with an infusion of equity from minority-owned Clay Cove Capital, LLC . The Buccini/Pollin Group (BPG) secured Clay Cove’s critical equity capital commitments for the FNB Financial Center, join - ing BPG, the Pittsburgh Pen - guins and F.N.B. Corporation as equity investors in the $230 million, 26-story iconic tower that will rise in the Lower Hill neighborhood. The project will be the most highly visible addi - tion to the Pittsburgh skyline and a critical catalyst for over $1 billion of economic expan - sion, job creation and neighbor - hood reinvestment. P

and managing partner of Clay Cove Capital, said: “Clay Cove is happy to invest in Pittsburgh once again, adding to its nation-wide portfolio. FNB Financial Center is a once in a lifetime opportunity for the highest level of urban placemaking in a project that has the most ambitious equi - table development and wealth building program that we have seen across the country. The mixed-use project aligns well with our investment portfolio by creating high value for both the community and its inves - tors. Clay Cove, its partners, and its investors are extremely excited to be a part of the Hill District community for a long time to come and hope to add new chapters of reinvestment to the Lower Hill’s incredible story.” MAREJ apartments.” Located in the heart of re - vitalized downtown Rahway across from the city train sta - tion, near major highways, many major employers and an abundance of commercial offerings, the property is lo - cated 23 miles southwest of lower Manhattan and only a 30-minute train ride to mid - town Manhattan. The sale included 45 one-bed - room units, 102 two-bedroom units and 13 penthouses. The individual units include full luxury amenities. The property includes concierge services, a rooftop terrace, a fitness center and secure covered parking. At the time of closing, the units were fully leased.

Despite the challenges of a very difficult economy, BPG now has all debt and equity arrangements necessary to advance the construction of the tower that will become the future headquarters of F.N.B. Corporation. The partners anticipate a Q2 2021 ground breaking. Clay Cove Capital, a minority-

owned investment firm led by partners Amachie Ackah and Brian Eng , is pleased to com - mit funds that will far exceed the vision for such equitable investment under the ambi - tious neighborhood reinvest - ment agreement known as the Community Collaboration and Implementation Plan (CCIP). Amachie Ackah, co-founder in the central and northern New Jersey condo markets,” said Barry Waisbrod, senior vice president. “Skyview was particularly attractive to them given the property’s location, proximity to the train, design and excellent condition.” Constructed in 2005 as a best-in-class luxury full-ame - nity building, the property was originally known as Skyview at Carriage City Plaza and also includes 20,000 square feet of commercial space and a hotel, which were not a part of the sale. Leading up to the Great Recession, some of the condominiums were sold indi - vidually but given the changing market conditions in the late 2000’s, the property went into foreclosure and the original de - veloper lost the property to the lender who had been managing it since then. “The seller was a New York City-based pension fund that originated the construction financing more than ten years ago,” added Squires. “After acquiring the foreclosed prop - erty, the lender halted condo - minium sales and rented the remaining unsold 160 units as

Sustainable Buildings Create Healthier Communities f the current pandemic has taught us anything, it is that we are all con- nected and part of a global community. Just as our natu- ral environment is an intricate balance of an ecosystem; build- ings exist on a much smaller, but equally important scale, as touchpoints of their com- munities and neighborhoods. At FCA, LEED and WELL standards are the ‘active in- gredients’ of our firm’s core values. In fact, creating the right environment aligns with three out of four of our guiding principles: Place, Planet, Peo- ple and Process. As architects and designers, we have always felt a fundamental responsibil- ity to create a compelling and responsive sense of place that integrates the needs of the I

client with the needs of the larger community surround- ing each project. In recent months, COVID-19 has accelerated the conversa- tion around sustainability and wellness for the AEC industry and its clients. In fact, it is eas- ier to promote sustainability in projects and within companies and wellness than most people assume. Architects and de- signers can all start small and keep moving toward improv- ing, because ultimately these seemingly small shifts posi- tively impact the individual as well as a company’s bottom line. In design, sustainability The Impact of a Global Pandemic

and wellness make people’s lives better through providing them with safe, comfortable, and responsible environments that affect broader communi- ties. Our job as designers is to recognize opportunities for small, non-invasive nudges that can be built into a space to promote wellness. Other, more deliberate and legible features include technology solutions in lieu of paper, healthy food vending, meditation or respite rooms, and relaxed posture lounges.

ELVILLE, NY — A&G Real Estate Partners announced Investor buys income-producing ind. RTV center in Jacksonville & downtown retail site inWVA A&G completes bankruptcy sale of Stage Stores’ distribution center and real estate assets M May 2020. The company has since liquidated all stores.

In the largest transaction, Bradenton, FL-based Bealls Inc. acquired the fee interest for Stage’s 435,196 s/f distri- bution center in Jacksonville, which sits on a 42.51-acre parcel that includes undevel- oped land for expansion. The facility was built in 1985 and has undergone multiple rounds of modernization to accom- modate brick-and-mortar and e-commerce fulfillment. Apart from the real estate, Bealls’ winning $7.0 million bid included the facility’s ma- chinery and equipment, and the company’s intellectual property. A&G also sold two other sites owned by Stage Stores: an income producing indus- trial RTV (return to vendor ) center in Jacksonville and a retail site in Logan, West VA. Both were acquired by Jetall Companies, Inc., a real estate investment and management firm out of Houston. Located on 6.45 acres, the 125,232 s/f RTV center is currently partially occupied by a single tenant. The 24,332 s/fretail property is a single-level former Peebles store on Stratton Street in downtown Logan. “Jetall purchased the two properties for a combined $360,000, which was $100,000 higher than the other bids presented to the court,” said Mike Matlat , senior managing director at A&G. A&G put the three proper- ties up for bid in early August. “We ran an accelerated sales process that delivered winning bids which were accepted by the court without any objec- tions from the creditors,” noted Matlat. “ Overall, we were especially pleased to see the Jacksonville distribution center transition on a turnkey basis to an expansion-minded retailer that will utilize this state-of- the-art facility to support its growth.” The family-owned Bealls Inc. currently operates more than 540 stores in 17 states under the Bealls, Bealls Outlet, Burkes Outlet, Home Centric and Bunulu names. The intellectual property ac- quired by Bealls Inc. from the court includes the trademarks and trade names for Stage Stores, Goody’s, Gordmans, Palais Royal, and Peebles, as well as the national rights for the Bealls name.
