We have a phenomenal opportunity to make a huge return by partnering with two of the top developers and global tourism experts who are jointly creating an iconic Manhattan destination with tremendous retail and F&B, which will take advantage of the more than 20 million people annually which frequent this prime Manhattan location.
Moreover, this investment will generate more than $70 million in EBITDA per year with an estimated 10x equity return. This asset is already built and pursuant to the development plan this venture will provide users with a totally unique lifestyle, entertainment and retail experience in a prime Manhattan waterfront location. This asset is also located directly next to one of the largest social media conglomerates in the world which occupies approximately 250k sf of office space which will be a huge demand generator helping to insure the success of this project.
This multi-dimensional operating business will also take advantage of the new trends occurring in retail real estate and will benefit from the more than 100 million consumer views each month which follow the creators and developers of this project. This location also benefits more than $4 billion of in-process and planned private investments.
In sum, this is an extraordinarily unique investment opportunity with incredible margins in a high volume destination within an integrated community with multiple revenue generators, similar to the great success being achieved at Eataly and Chelsea Market in Manhattan. The foregoing requires a relatively modest investment with unparalleled investment returns. I strongly encourage you to contact the undersigned to discuss this opportunity further.
