Spotlight: 2012 Year in Review – Kim Mogull, Mogull Realty

Kim Mogull, Mogull Realty  CEO  Phone: 212.286.5500  Fax: 347.368.2280  www.MogullRealty.com  What was your most notable project, deal or transaction in 2012? Representing BankUnited, a Florida based bank, in its entry and continued expansion throughout New York City has been notable and rewarding. The principals of BankUnited have been Mogull Realty clients for over ten years. We have grown with them through bank mergers, acquisitions and even the sale of their previous company, North Fork Bank. In preparation for BankUnited's New York launch, Mogull Realty secured three large branches on prime Manhattan corners. These include a flagship at Herald Square, and branches at the corners of Park Ave. & 48th Street and 57th Street & Lexington Ave - approx. $150 Million in leasing transactions within a 12-month time span. With its strong business relationships, dedication to service (and of course fantastic branch locations!), I am confident that BankUnited will quickly emerge as a powerful commercial bank and thus stimulate new opportunities, investments and job creation. We are proud to be a part of their launch and ongoing growth.  What are your predictions for commercial real estate in 2013? Expect to see more BankUnited branches throughout NewYork City!
