Deals for ten commercial condominiums in New York City, and other transactions from Texas to Long Island, propelled the CTSW real estate practice to a busy June and July.

Highlights included the acquisition of a mortgage on two distressed properties on Long Island, more than a half dozen refinancings of mortgage loans for commercial properties in New York and New Jersey as owners sought to take advantage of low interest rates, investment in a shopping mall acquisition in Texas, and an acquisition of a 25 building, 400 unit residential complex in Virginia.

Larry Tauber, who leads CTSW’s real estate practice, says this pace of activity is higher than in recent years, and may suggest a more active market overall.
