We advised the Rockefeller Group on the joint venture

Davis Polk advised affiliates of the Rockefeller Group on the formation of a joint venture with an affiliate of Park Tower Group to own and develop two lots as part of the Greenpoint Landing development. Rockefeller Group has the majority interest in the joint venture and its initial equity contribution was approximately $30 million dollars. The properties will be developed into a mixed use commercial and luxury residential condominium. The property is part of a 22-acre master-planned development site located on the Brooklyn waterfront, transforming a former industrial area into a multi-building development.
