New York Magazine has an article on real estate firm Tishman Speyer and the impending default of "the biggest real-estate deal in American history." It's not written for a business audience, but I'm trying to learn about real estate investing and investors so I'm reading everything.
An aside: the "Tishman" in Tishman Speyer was Bob Tishman, and the company used to own both apartment and office properties before it decided to focus on the latter in the mid-late 1960s, a focus it relaxed with the Stuy Town deal. To explain the shift Bob said something then that you couldn't say today: "I'd rather deal with twenty corporate presidents than with three hundred crazy women tenants." That quote comes from this book.
