Latest Goldman Sachs Urban Investment News

Cedar Realty Trust partners with Asland Capital Partners and the Goldman Sachs Urban Investment Group for Major Opportunity Zone Redevelopment in Washington, D.C.’s Seventh Ward

May 6, 2021

NEW YORK, May 6, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Asland Capital Partners, Cedar Realty Trust (NYSE: CDR ) and the Goldman Sachs Urban Investment Group announced the formation of a joint venture for the construction of the first phase of Northeast Heights, a mixed-use office and retail development in the Minnesota/Benning submarket of Washington D.C.’s Ward 7 neighborhood. The partnership also announced it has secured $105 million in construction financing from J.P. Morgan. The first phase of Northeast Heights is a 258,500 square foot six-story commercial building. The office space is 100% leased to the Washington, D.C., Department of General Services (DGS) for its headquarters. The building includes 18,000 square feet of street-level retail. Cedar Realty Trust and Asland Capital Partners are co-developing the property while the Goldman Sachs Urban Investment Group is serving as a strategic capital partner. Trammell Crow Company, one of the nation’s largest commercial real estate developers and investors, is the designated fee developer. A JLL Capital Markets team comprised by Roland Merchant Jr., Nicco Lupo and Thomas Pryor arranged the debt and equity financing. Relocation of the DGS headquarters to Ward 7 was announced by Mayor Muriel Bowser in 2020 as part of the city’s revitalization strategy to spark economic activity and investment in the area, and to bring retail, entertainment and dining options to the neighborhood. Construction is expected to begin in Q2 2021. “Formation of this joint venture represents an important first step in advancing Cedar Realty Trust’s vision for Northeast Heights, a mixed-use redevelopment project that will bring substantial economic activity to Ward 7,” said Robin Zeigler, Chief Operating Officer of Cedar. “As the cornerstone and catalyst to the Northeast Heights redevelopment, construction of the DGS headquarters building will begin the long-planned revitalization of the Minnesota/Benning Corridor. We are grateful for the support of our partners, lenders, and local Washington, D.C. governmental officials who have been instrumental in achieving this milestone.” “Asland is excited to be part of this major investment in the vibrant Ward 7 community. The development  will create jobs and lay the groundwork to deliver much-needed goods and services that have been heretofore absent from this previously underserved enclave,” said James H. Simmons III, CEO & Founding Partner of Asland Capital Partners. “Northeast Heights was made possible by a shared vision for inclusive growth among public and private partners, and we are thrilled to support the District’s long-term commitment to the Benning Road corridor,” said Daniel Alger, managing director and co-head of the Goldman Sachs Urban Investment Group. “This project will create jobs, promote economic opportunity and will serve as a model for community development.” The area’s designation as an Opportunity Zone will allow for important tax incentives for investments in new business and commercial projects at Ward 7, a historically underserved market. The joint venture will work to lease the remaining retail space at the property to retailers that benefit tenants of the office building and bring necessary amenities and services to the area. “We believe that the impetus behind the opportunity zone program was precisely the development of projects such as Northeast Heights, aimed at creating vital investment opportunities on mixed-income, underserved neighborhoods,” added Mr. Simmons. “We are looking forward to continue working on this remarkable project and being part of the future of Ward 7.” “Trammell Crow Company is pleased to play a key role in the development of Northeast Heights on behalf of the ownership team of Cedar, Asland, and Goldman Sachs and to execute the District’s vision for the new DGS headquarters. As one of the District’s most active office developers, we look forward to bringing our expertise to this project and new partnership,” said Campbell Smith, Managing Director and Business Unit Leader for Trammell Crow Company MidAtlantic.

Media Contact: BBQ Dragon Double Extreme Grill Light But this 2021 grill season promises to be even more popular than previous years, due to the increased popularity of outdoor cooking during the Covid pandemic. Sales of grills and smokers during the pandemic increased 39% compared to the same period the year previous year, according to a new report from The NPD Group, a U.S. retail tracking service. Because many Memorial Day BBQ chefs will also be purchasing new grills or accessories for the holiday, grill manufacturers traditionally launch new products at this time. BBQ Dragon is one grill company that has a reputation for creating innovative grill tools. They have just announced four brand-new products for this season that BBQ and grilling fans will wish they had: The “Chainmail” Grill Brush: If you’re worried about the danger of swallowing a wire bristle from regular grill brushes, this patent-pending brush uses “chainmail” like medieval knights wore for armor to clean the grill more safely. The “Double-Extreme” Grill Light: The world’s only double-headed LED grill and utility light, the two super-bright LED’s are mounted on separate goosenecks, so you can light two areas – the grill, and your prep surface, for example. Clips just about anywhere. The “Domino” Skewer Rack: For making shish-kabobs, this rack holds six 14″ skewers, but you only need to turn ONE skewer, and the remaining five turn automatically – “Domino” style – making the chore of carefully turning kabobs on the grill a lot easier. The Chimney of Insanity “XL” version: BBQ Dragon’s popular charcoal chimney works with their BBQ Dragon grill fan to start charcoal in just 2 minutes – and they have just released this “XL” version, which they claim is the largest charcoal chimney made. “The huge surge in sales created by the Pandemic gave us the opportunity to launch some new products,” said BBQ Dragon’s head of product development, George Prior. The company’s new “Chainmail Grill Brush” solves a well-known health danger of grilling: the accidental ingestion of steel bristles from grill cleaning brushes. According to Prior, the “bristle-free” brush solutions currently available use coiled wires instead of straight bristles. In the company’s testing, these brushes still wear out and allow wires to break off the coils. BBQ Dragon’s brush cleans the grill with a woven net of chain links that are both less likely to break free, and less dangerous if accidentally swallowed. As a result of the company’s emphasis on innovation, their products often look odd: The new “Double-Extreme Grill Light” clearly shows this visual difference: With two separate LED lamps on two long stainless-steel goose necks, the light immediately looks completely different from any other light we’ve seen. The massive clip also holds 4AA batteries. All four of the newly added products are available on their website at bbqdragon.com and online at major retailers like Target, Home Depot, and Lowes. BBQ Dragon is a popular grill accessories brand with 50 innovative products. The creators of the BBQ Dragon Fan and the 2-minute charcoal Chimney of Insanity, their mission is to create innovative products that inspire customers to excel at BBQ and at life. They believe that good tools inspire good BBQ, and good BBQ inspires good living.

Urtubey es la primera persona latina en ser nombrada Maestro Nacional del Año desde al menos 2005 y la primera persona de Nevada en llevar el título.

Juliana celebra y valora el conocimiento y las experiencias que los estudiantes aportan al aula, lo que contribuye a su gran capacidad para comprender y satisfacer las necesidades académicas y socioemocionales de los niños.
