The Party Circuit: Prince Realty Advisors’ Pre-Valentine’s Day Cocktail Party
The Editors Feb. 20, 2014, 9 a.m.
Real estate investment brokerage and capital markets group Prince Realty Advisors, which calls itself a “matchmaker” for its clients, hosted a “pre-Valentine’s Day cocktail party,” on February 11. Celebrating the firm’s clients and colleagues, party attendees gathered at the Hudson Bond, at 215 West 40th Street, in which Prince Realty’s founder and principal, David Ash, is an investor. Mr. Ash, who brokered the nearly $280 million purchase of the Beatrice in Chelsea last year, said that Brooklyn was pretty mainstream now, noting that the borough is “not a fad any longer.” In attendance were Prince Realty’s Kyle Stein, who was recently named managing director of the firm’s debt and equity division (as Commercial Observer reported), and Simon Ziff, the president of financial brokerage Ackman-Ziff, which arranged a $255 million refinancing of Milford Plaza hotel in 2013
