Taken from the briefing Ground Leases – Financeability and Much Much More recorded April, 2017 in New York.

Ground leases are part of the landscape for major acquisition and development transactions in New York City and elsewhere in the United States. Everyone knows a ground lease must be “financeable,” but a successful ground lease transaction requires much more. In this special One-Hour Briefing, Joshua Stein, the program chair (since 1997) for PLI’s annual two-day seminar on Commercial Real Estate Financing 2017 and an author of a book on ground leases, will explore many of the crucial issues that arise in negotiating ground leases. Financeability is only the beginning.
