  • Proptech’s winners and losers in 2020

    first_imgWarburg Realty’s Clelia Warburg, Breather’s Brian Murphy and InstaClosing’s Peter Zinkovetsky (iStock)It’s been a year of extreme highs and extreme lows in the proptech industry.While startups offering catering to digital transactions surged, co-working and flex-office spaces struggled with a sharp drop in business, as Business Insider reports.Several companies in the sector laid off large numbers of staff and sought financial lifelines in order to survive. Others shuttered office locations and wound down their operations.“Breather, in its current form as an operator, doesn’t make sense, and, to be frank, I’m not sure it ever made sense,” CEO Bryan Murphy said in mid-December. His flex-office company recently announced plans to close 400 office locations and lay off most of its employees.But some industry players see the pandemic as a turning point.“I really think that at a macro level, what’s happening right now with COVID is going to serve with proptech the same way that the financial crisis did with fintech,” Clelia Warburg Peters, a venture partner at Bain Capital and president of Warburg Realty, told BI.The dramatic shifts in how we live and work created a need for companies that make remote transactions easier. Last month, real estate attorney Peter Zinkovetsky launched InstaClosing, a startup that handles real estate closings virtually. Other companies catering to home sales, including Notarize — which offers virtual notarizations — have already enjoyed successes.“Any company that is helping real-estate firms operate digitally and operate remotely are generally the massive winners over the past 10-plus months,” Jake Fingert of Camber Creek told BI.Read moreCo-working firms are still open.

But the agility of flex office space could help some companies save money while avoiding long-term commitments with commercial landlords.“Flex office was a loser in the first part of this year, and no one would argue otherwise,” MetaProp’s Zach Aarons told BI. “They’re losers, but projected winners, those that can survive.” [Business Insider] — Sylvia Varnham O’Reganlast_img read more

  • Corcoran to sublet 50K sf in IBM Building

    first_img590 Madison Avenue and Corcoran Group CEO Pam Liebman (Google Maps, Getty)The Corcoran Group is betting on New York City’s office market.The brokerage is moving to the IBM Building at 590 Madison Avenue, where it is subleasing the seventh and eighth floors from Aspen Insurance. The brokerage signed a lease for 11 years and two months for the 48,200-square-foot space, which is roughly the same size as its former office space at 660 Madison Avenue. The new space will be home to the brokerage’s corporate headquarters, as well as the 400 agents who were based out of its East Side office.Greg Taubin of Savills represented Aspen in the deal, while Paul Wexler of Corcoran represented the brokerage.Read moreSafra family finally begins 660 Madison’s office-to-resi conversionDouglas Elliman’s losses mount.

But Pam Liebman, president and CEO of Corcoran, doesn’t see it as a contrarian move; she’s planning for the post-pandemic world.Corcoran declined to comment on pricing but Liebman said it was a good deal for the brokerage.“The price is significantly lower than what we were paying at 660 [Madison], not because the building doesn’t warrant it, but because it’s a sublet and the timing,” she said.The brokerage vacated its former office space at 660 Madison this fall after the building owner, the real estate family office J. Safra Real Estate, began the process of converting the office building into residential and hotel units.The firm’s new office is being renovated by architecture firm Vocon. The building itself has perks like a gym, a lounge and golf simulator. Liebman said she believes that once restrictions related to coronavirus are lifted, “agents will be very, very happy here.”“I think New York comes back. It’s not going to happen overnight commercially but it will come back,” said Liebman. “We never considered not keeping the space in New York.”Contact Erin Hudson Full Name*center_img Message* Email Address* Share via Shortlinklast_img read more

  • Sands Corp. leaving Las Vegas in $6B sale of properties

    first_img Tags Apollo global managementLas VegasSheldon Adelson The Venetian and The Palazzo in Las Vegas. (Getty, The Venetian)Las Vegas Sands Corp. is leaving Las Vegas and aiming for Asia.The company that had been run by Sheldon Adelson until death in January has agreed to sell the Venetian casino and resort and two other Vegas properties for $6.25 billion.The buyer is Apollo Global Management, according to the Wall Street Journal.Apollo partner Alex van Hoek said the move “underscores our conviction in a strong recovery for Las Vegas,” and the global hospitality and gambling business as a whole, according to the report. The hospitality industry has been decimated by the pandemic, although strong gains last month put share prices of publicly traded hotel companies back up to pre-Covid levels.In addition to the opulent Venetian, the other two properties sold were the luxury casino and resort Palazzo, and the Sands Expo Convention Center.ADVERTISEMENTSands Corp. plans to keep its headquarters in Vegas, and executives have said the company has considered expansions in New York and Texas.But it is pivoting its business to Asia, planning to invest more heavily in its Singapore and Macau properties. Those two places accounted for 85 percent of its revenue as of 2019, the report showed.The company had been soliciting offers for its Vegas properties at least as early as October 2020, three months before its founder, Adelson, died at 87.Sands Corp. paused dividends last year amid the pandemic; the sale to Apollo might lead the company to pay some of the proceeds to shareholders, a Jefferies analyst told the Journal.The Vegas tourism industry, meanwhile, is heavily dependent on foot traffic and many casino and hotel operators are feeling the financial pressure of Covid. Some operators came up with incentive packages to draw foot traffic to their properties but gambling revenue dropped 31 percent from 2019 to 2020, the Las Vegas Sun reported.[WSJ] — Dennis Lynch Share via Shortlink Share on FacebookShare on TwitterShare on LinkedinShare via Email Share via Shortlinklast_img read more

  • The measurement of daily energy expenditure—an evaluation of some techniques

    first_imgAn energy balance survey was conducted on an Antarctic base on 12 individuals for periods varying between 6 and 12 months. Energy expenditure was estimated using two activity/dairy card techniques and mean 24-hr heart rate used in conjunction with a variety of derived heart rate/energy expenditure regression equations. The accuracy of the various techniques was determined by comparison with estimates obtained using energy intakes and changes in body fat. No method of measuring energy expenditure was accurate enough to predict fat gain or loss. Errors in individuals were large and random but the mean error in the estimation of energy expenditure of the community was reasonable. When using the dairy card there was no difference between using measured values for energy costs of specific activities and using values taken from the literature. Using heart rate was no less accurate than the diary card if energy expenditure was predicted from a regression line derived from heart rate and log energy expenditure, and the technique was more acceptable to the subjects.last_img read more

  • The justification, design and implementation of Ecological Risk Assessments of the effects of fishing on seabirds

    first_imgMany marine species are threatened by high levels of incidental mortality in fisheries. This paper reviews the design of selected recent, detailed Ecological Risk Assessments (ERAs) of the effects of fishing on seabirds. Several aspects of ERA methodology for seabirds are still in development, including the most appropriate ways to: predict seabird distribution and fisheries overlap; handle data gaps; compare productivity and susceptibility among species; and incorporate data on bycatch. Nor is there consensus on rules for selecting species or populations for inclusion in assessments, the appropriate spatial and temporal resolution for the analyses, and the definition of risk. Despite these uncertainties, the clear benefits of undertaking quantitative or semi-quantitative ERAs include the identification of particularly vulnerable species or populations and of key areas and seasons in which bycatch may be occurring, and the highlighting of data gaps and priorities for future monitoring. ERAs are likely to be particularly effective where explicit links are established at the outset between the outcomes or conclusions of the ERA and management responses. A precautionary approach to bycatch mitigation can then be embedded in the broader fisheries management framework. However, this requires that the ERA process is not overly complex or is prolonged to the extent that it draws attention away from existing responsibilities and commitments to reduce bycatch per se. When selecting the best approach, it is vital to balance desired outputs against the availability of data for the assessment, and to deal with data gaps in a precautionary manner.last_img read more

  • Inland extent of the Weddell Sea Rift imaged by new aerogeophysical data

    first_imgThe Weddell Sea Rift was a major focus for Jurassic extension and magmatism during the early stages of Gondwana break-up and underlies the Weddell Sea Embayment, which separates East Antarctica from a collage of crustal blocks in West Antarctica. Newly-collected aerogeophysical data over the catchments of Institute and Möller ice streams reveal the inland extent of the Weddell Sea Rift against the Ellsworth-Whitmore block and a hitherto unknown major left-lateral strike slip boundary between East and West Antarctica. Aeromagnetic and gravity anomalies define the regional subglacial extent of Proterozoic basement, Middle Cambrian rift-related volcanic rocks, Jurassic intrusions and sedimentary rocks of inferred post-Jurassic age. 2D and 3D magnetic depth-to-source estimates were used to help constrain joint magnetic and gravity models for the region. The models reveal that Proterozoic crust similar to that exposed at Haag Nunataks, extends southeast of the Ellsworth Mountains to the margin of the Coastal Basins. Thick granitic Jurassic intrusions are modelled at the transition between the Ellsworth-Whitmore block and the thinner crust of the Weddell Sea Rift and within the Pagano Shear Zone. The crust beneath the inland extension of the Weddell Sea Rift is modelled as being either ~ 4 km thinner compared to the adjacent Ellsworth-Whitmore block or as underlain by an up to 8 km thick mafic underplate.last_img read more

  • Ten years on: A review of the first global conservation horizon scan

    first_imgOur first horizon scan, conducted in 2009, aimed to identify novel but poorly known issues with potentially significant effects on global conservation of biological diversity. Following completion of the tenth annual scan, we reviewed the 15 topics identified a decade ago and assessed their development in the scientific literature and news media. Five topics, including microplastic pollution, synthetic meat, and environmental applications of mobile-sensingtechnology, appeared to have had widespread salience and effects. The effects of six topics were moderate, three have not emerged, and the effects of one topic were low. The awareness of, and involvement in, these issues by 12conservation organisations has increased for most issues since 2009.last_img read more

  • Decadal-scale progression of Dansgaard-Oeschger warming events

    first_imgDuring the last glacial period, proxy records throughout the Northern Hemisphere document a succession of rapid millennial-scale warming events, called Dansgaard–Oeschger (DO) events. A range of different mechanisms has been proposed that can produce similar warming in model experiments; however, the progression and ultimate trigger of the events are still unknown. Because of their fast nature, the progression is challenging to reconstruct from paleoclimate data due to the limited temporal resolution achievable in many archives and cross-dating uncertainties between records. Here, we use new high-resolution multi-proxy records of sea-salt (derived from sea spray and sea ice over the North Atlantic) and terrestrial (derived from the central Asian deserts) aerosol concentrations over the period 10–60 ka from the North Greenland Ice Core Project (NGRIP) and North Greenland Eemian Ice Drilling (NEEM) ice cores in conjunction with local precipitation and temperature proxies from the NGRIP ice core to investigate the progression of environmental changes at the onset of the warming events at annual to multi-annual resolution. Our results show on average a small lead of the changes in both local precipitation and terrestrial dust aerosol concentrations over the change in sea-salt aerosol concentrations and local temperature of approximately one decade. This suggests that, connected to the reinvigoration of the Atlantic meridional overturning circulation and the warming in the North Atlantic, both synoptic and hemispheric atmospheric circulation changes at the onset of the DO warming, affecting both the moisture transport to Greenland and the Asian monsoon systems. Taken at face value, this suggests that a collapse of the sea-ice cover may not have been the initial trigger for the DO warming.last_img read more

  • Have whales returned to a historical hotspot of industrial whaling? The pattern of southern right whale Eubalaena australis recovery at South Georgia

    first_imgAround 176500 whales were killed in the sub-Antarctic waters off South Georgia (South Atlantic) between 1904 and 1965. In recent decades, whales have once again become summer visitors, with the southern right whale (SRW) the most commonly reported species until 2011. Here, we assess the distribution, temporal pattern, health status and likely prey of SRWs in these waters, combining observations from a summertime vessel-based expedition to South Georgia, stable isotope data collected from SRWs and putative prey and sightings reports collated by the South Georgia Museum. The expedition used directional acoustics and visual surveys to localise whales and collected skin biopsies and photo-IDs. During 76 h of visual observation effort over 19 expedition days, SRWs were encountered 15 times (~31 individuals). Photo-IDs, combined with publicly contributed images from commercial vessels, were reconciled and quality-controlled to form a catalogue of 6 fully (i.e. both sides) identified SRWs and 26 SRWs identified by either left or right sides. No photo-ID matches were found with lower-latitude calving grounds, but 3 whales had gull lesions supporting a direct link with Península Valdés, Argentina. The isotopic position of SRWs in the South Georgia food web suggests feeding on a combination of copepod and krill species. Opportunistic reports of SRW sightings and associated group sizes remain steady over time, while humpback whales provide a strong contrast, with increased sighting rates and group sizes seen since 2013. These data suggest a plateau in SRWs and an increasing humpback whale presence in South Georgia waters following the cessation of whaling.last_img read more
