Tannenbaum Helperns Clients Purchase of Long Island College Hospital Ranked Among the Top 3 Real Estate Development Deals in 2014 by The Real Deal


New York, NY (PRWEB) January 13, 2015

With a purchase price of $ 240 million, The Real Deal ranked Fortis Property Groups acquisition of the Long Island College Hospital campus in Cobble Hill, Brooklyn #3 in its list of Top 10 Development Deals of 2014. Tannenbaum Helpern represented Fortis Property Group in the purchase. According to The Real Deal, while it is not the biggest transaction in terms of dollars, it may be the most unique and interesting. The process of Fortis entering into multiple agreements with the State University of New York for the purchase of this site took over a year to complete, full of twists and turns. Fortis partnered with NYU Langone Medical Center, which took over the operations of the existing hospital emergency department and will be operating an NYU Langone medical facility to be developed on the site. Fortis plans on developing the balance of the site primarily as a residential project. The deal involved heavy negotiations with key players while addressing the concerns of the seller, community groups and other stakeholders.

We are proud to have represented Fortis on the transaction. The deal was highly complex and involved intense negotiations. We were happy to help iron out the differences while keeping our clients interests in mind and ultimately bring it to a successful closing, said Robert E. Helpern, Chair of Tannenbaum Helperns Real Estate department. The Tannenbaum Helpern team was led by Helpern and Eric S. Schoenfeld, a partner in Tannenbaum Helperns Real Estate department.

SXM Deals Helps Alleviate St. Maarten Travel Woes in Preparation for Peak Season


Philipsburg, St. Maarten (PRWEB) September 26, 2013

Peak travel season to St. Maarten and many Caribbean isles is quickly approaching. An Expedia-type online booking site, SXM Deals, plans to help make many travelers experience the best yet with enhanced features to secure the best rates on boat tours, excursions, and activities around St. Maarten.

According to an article recently released by Universal Weather and Aviation, Inc., Jessica Hosmer states that St. Maarten becomes one of the busiest and most congested destinations from mid-December to mid-April.

In light of the increased travel to St. Maarten, this season promises to be busier than first time island-goers, residents, and avid travelers have seen in the recent past. Princess Juliana International Airport has seen an increase in total flights booked in the first half of 2013 already, and CEO and owner of SXM Deals, Michael Rouveure, expects the next six to eight months will be no different.

Weve added tours to gear up for the busy season, and plan to add a lot of exclusive content and tips through means like social media and email newsletters, said Rouveure. My number one tip to travelers would be to book activities, tours, and excursions in advance with hotel and flight accommodations.

The famous cruise company, Carnival, has added a recent satisfaction guarantee to all cruises to enhance the passenger experience, and which will also likely increase cruise bookings to St. Maarten this season. However, experienced Caribbean travelers and veterans in the tourism industry like Rouveure know that the real challenge starts after the flights land and the boats dock.

SXM Deals provides a wide range of activities because we realize the diversity and the needs of our travelers. Some may want a child-friendly beach atmosphere, or something more romantic like a sunset cruise around the island. Popular excursions and boat tours fill up rather quickly, so the features weve added the past few months have been in preparation for this high influx of bookings,” continued Michael.

SXM Deals is the only major tour company to offer a fully functioning online booking experience specifically dedicated to St. Maarten tours. To date, SXM Deals has helped over 3,000 members decipher which are the best boat tours and activities in St. Maarten.

With the SXM Deals booking service, visitors are guaranteed high quality St. Maarten excursions based on guest reviews and excellence of service. More importantly, visitors can research all the newest tours before arrival and book in advance to secure with peace of mind the ideal experience by avoiding last minute fully booked tours.

About SXM Deals:

St. Maarten is a busy and vibrant island with dozens of wonderful excursions to enjoy. The island welcomes millions of tourists every year. CEO and founder Michael Rouveure recognized the flourishing tourism industry but wanted to make it easier for guests to enjoy a true island experience. Michael founded SXM Deals in 2012 and has not stopped forging ahead to make traveling to the island and booking tours more convenient for travel agents and travel enthusiasts alike. To find out more about all the tours in St. Maarten or how to book group tours, go to SXMdeals.com. Live the St. Maarten experience now!

We felt that the extensive variety of both luxury and budget hotels would undoubtedly satisfy the diversity of our customer base. In addition, WCT have provided us with unparalleled customer service and flexibility when compared to other hotel inventories we investigated. We were most impressed by their proven track record in part due to Travelocity’s backing.’

Dr. Suzanne Cook, Senior Vice President for research for the Travel Industry Association of America advises that winter travel is back. “Increased economic activity and a rise in consumer confidence are paving the way to a strong winter travel season.” It is predicted that Americans will take 213.4 million trips this winter season, representing an increase of 2.3 percent over last winter.

Schneider of WCT echoes this belief. ‘Hotels have always had a niche. With the clout of a major player like Travelocity behind HotStays.com™, they are able to offer the largest selection of hotels and resorts with credibility. Our research indicates that Americans are still traveling, albeit the trips are more last minute and perhaps shorter in duration. Hotels remain the perfect vehicle for spontaneous travel.’

Suri, of International Web Media, LLC, has identified a number of hotels in the top winter destinations that represent both deeply discounted savings and quality. In Vail, HotStays.com™ offers hot rates for the award winning, The Lodge at Vail. ‘Nestled at the base of Vail Mountain in the heart of Vail Village, skiers are spoiled by both location and exceptional service. The Marriott’s Royal Palms Villa Hotel in Orlando offers serenity despite being a mere 2 minutes from Disney World Magic Kingdom, Epcot Center and MGM Studios. For those who want to enjoy a city break, The Chambers, New York City is the first downtown hotel with an uptown address. This funky loft space offers superior attention to detail in lush surroundings. For those venturing further afield, the BSA Champs Elysees, Paris, France offers a pet friendly, fashionably located space giving easy access to the cultural diversity of City of Lights. Jump on the ‘chunnel’ and stay at the luxurious townhouse located in the fashionable St James’ area of London. 22 Jermyn Street, London offers the perfect solution to both business and leisure travelers. The staff here promises your trip will be as memorable as it is convenient. These European getaways are stylishly appointed with modern conveniences including washer/dryer, DVD player, CD player.’

For detractors of internet shopping, HotStays.com™ has alleviated many of the common fears associated with booking hotel rooms on line. Most hotels offer both interior and exterior images of the hotel and bedrooms, to ensure users are able to view what they are booking. Location of the hotels are clearly illustrated by giving a helpful distance scale to show where the property is located in relation to airports, restaurants and major tourist attractions. A quality rating scale is used on the majority of properties to better understand the quality of hotel offered. Instant availability and confirmation of booking is available, without having to give personal information or a credit card number. All rates are clearly displayed, are currency specific and indicate whether the rate is per person or per room. Clearly demarcated cancellation policies are declared.

Will Belden, Vice President of International Web Media, LLC, states, ‘Booking hotels on line has never been easier or safer due to our intense security measures our card holder data is protected with a state-of-the-art secure socket layer (SSL) technology (128 bit SSL) and easy navigation. Now is the time to reconnect with friends and family for the winter season.’
