  • An appraisal of Kushner’s 248,457-square-foot retail condo at 229 West 43rd Street shows a decrease in value by 80 percent, to $92.5 million, from $470 million in 2017, according to Trepp. The property is now valued well below the $225 million CMBS loan backing the property. In September, the loan was more than 90 days delinquent, but Trepp now shows the loan is no longer delinquent, but rather is in a “grace period.” (TRD)
