After reaching a deal with
Madison in January to return development rights for half of the
two-block Judge Doyle Square project to the city, records obtained
Monday show Beitler Real Estate notified the city over a month later
that it was “impossible” to complete its portion of the project.
On Feb. 15, Beitler Real Estate sent
the city a notice of default through its attorney. In it, Beitler
claimed that the way the city zoned the block that currently holds the
Government East parking garage is preventing construction of a private
hotel and apartment complex there from moving forward.
Ken Notes: I would like to hear from George Austin and the developers who would have a real understanding of the issues here and I can wait until after the meeting because speculation only make things worse. I get very nervous when the lawyers step up to the mic and in this case the two representing the city do not seem to agree.
Funding may be a real issue because in development time is money and a delay regardless of cause may cause money to tighten but that is only a guess on my part. I do not know how much of the actual process has made the news, but if letters from lawyers is the first point of discussion I have real concerns with the management of the product. My assumption is that the staff has been working on this and Beitler is concerned about the time it takes for government to do anything -- again only speculation on my part but we have some pretty smart people at the table.
Also why is Assistant City Attorney Kevin Ramakrishna so vocal and opinionated while City Attorney Mike May is more reserved and pragmatic in his comments. Of course that might just be me reading between the lines but the mayor and staff have offered no comment, Even Ald Ahrens is not addressing the specifics and he is often very vocal regarding the developer.
Clearly there is tension between the two parties, but until we have this issue before us in full the city needs to manage the press - me included.

- The retail apocalypse is ripping through America.
- More than 5,300 store closures have been announced so far in 2019.
These photos reveal the impact of the retail apocalypse, with deserted
malls, empty shopping centers, and disorganized stores selling deeply
The retail apocalypse continues to tear through America.
More than 5,300 store closures have been announced so far in 2019, as Victoria`s Secret, JCPenney, and Gap shutter dozens of locations.
1,100 closures were announced in a single day in March. Ten retailers have filed for bankruptcy or liquidation so far this year.
The closures and bankruptcies are leaving their mark on malls and
shopping centers around the country. Here`s photographic evidence that a
retail apocalypse is hitting the US hard...
RSK; Great photos but haunting for the retail industry. Take a peek.
Ken Notes: We need to be aggressive with adaptive reuse because it only take a short while for an empty building to decay...
The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 sent ripples through commercial real estate, thanks largely to the revelation of opportunity zones. But a few TCJA tax code changes could be even more influential. One that has tax professionals abuzz is bonus depreciation, which can save large amounts of money no matter the project.
Bonus depreciation allows taxpayers to write off a portion of an
asset in the year it was acquired as long as that asset has a
sufficiently short life span. Personal property like
plumbing systems, for instance, have a shorter life span than a
building structure itself, and can be written off. The TCJA doubled
bonus depreciation on eligible assets, from 50% all the way to 100%... ...more
RSK: This may help rectify the tax code 39-year depreciation mistake in the above article but not all of it.

Gone are the days of sleepy, gated retirement communities in secluded, suburban settings. Millions of baby boomers reaching retirement age today are demanding a more urban style of living, and developers are beginning to respond.
"One of the things we`re seeing with the population over 65 is they
want to stay in the heart of their community," Mather LifeWays Senior
Vice President Gale Morgan said. "Boomers are saying `I want ease of
access, I don`t want to have to get in my car to go to the restaurant or
the doctor.` The urban lifestyle is getting more and more popular." ... ...more

With the rapid expansion of the U.S. life science industry,
investor interest in life science properties has expanded dramatically,
despite the fact that such properties are more expensive than ever.
Prices in the sector are up. During the recession, life science cap
rates averaged about 9% nationwide. Since then, compression has been
steady, with cap rates at about 6.5% as of Q3 2018 — a little lower than
standard office space, which has also seen cap rate compression in
recent years.... ...more

Fifth–generation cellular network technology – 5G for short – is a
hot topic. Mobile technology undergoes an evolutionary leap every decade
or so. We`re on the cusp of the most consequential one yet. The hype
surrounding 5G has been intensifying. The drumbeat will continue to
crescendo. Consumers should expect to be inundated with marketing
information presently. Just like previous leaps, 5G promises monumental
improvements to existing mobile networks and revolutionary new
applications thanks to its touted super-fast speed, high-bandwidth
capacity and low latency. 5G will make possible autonomous vehicles,
remote medical procedures, ultra-high-definition 3D videos, cutting-edge
cloud computing, IoT, AI and smart, connected buildings... ...more

Imagine you`re the proud owner of Los
Pollos Hermanos, a fast-food empire with 14 locations in the American
southwest that you`ve built on the twin pillars of perfectly seasoned
fried chicken and meticulously maintained restaurants.
The year is 2018, and you`ve noticed that a few of your
establishments, including the flagship spot in Albuquerque, could use
some freshening up. So you dip into the corporate coffers and pony up
$1,000,000 to renovate and refurbish the interior portion of several of
your restaurants. And you couldn`t wait to do it. Why is that?
...How could that be? Based on your homework, you had been certain that
your improvements would give rise to an immediate $1 million deduction.
And you were right. But now, your trusted accountant has informed you
that instead, you`ll recover that investment over nearly FOUR DECADES.
And she`s right. How can both of those things be true?...
