As Brock’s investigation progresses, he learns that his current employer at the legal firm was involved in an eviction that was egregiously illegal. After kicking out a family of homeless young parents and their children, the entire family died. Further, he learns that the reason for their expulsion was money-driven, as it had coincided with the abrupt approval of a state construction project to replace their condemned building. The building had previously been used to provide reduced rent housing for the city’s recently homeless population. Due to the legal complexity of their housing situation, the residents were treated as if they were not entitled to their full rights, which allowed the law firm to force their eviction. Brock realizes that the tenants should have been legally deemed tenants instead of squatters, and were therefore entitled to the full eviction and appeal process. Despite this, a veteran member of Drake & Sweeney ignored this fact because the legal firm would personally profit from making sure that the federal building process started in a timely manner. They illegally threw its residents onto the streets in the middle of winter. Amazed at this revelation, Brock tries to borrow and copy a file as evidence but is soon suspected of meddling in the business.

40 Rector Street loan goes to special servicer
The $80 million loan for a 600,000-square-foot downtown Manhattan office building at 40 Rector Street was transferred to a special servicer yesterday, according to Fitch Ratings, Crain’s reported. The owner of the property, Philips International, defaulted on the loan, which matured June 1. As a result, it was transferred to J.E. Robert Company, a Va.-based special servicer that works out troubled loans. The Rector Street loan is secured by a 440,000-square-foot office property that Philips owns elsewhere in the Financial District, according to a recent Fitch Ratings U.S. CMBS focus performance
report. The report noted that many leases were up for renewal. Nine separate New York City agencies lease nearly half of the actual rentable space in the building, which is located between Washington and West streets. All of those leases are scheduled to expire next month. The lease of the third largest tenant in the 19-story building, Merrill Lynch, also expires next month. Manhattan-based Philips International owns and operates more than 3 million square feet of retail properties, 1.3 million feet of office space and two hotels throughout the East Coast. The company is also the co-developer of a new rental building, the Corner, at 200 West 72nd Street at the southwest corner of Broadway. [Crain’s]
