I see that they sold 3 more properties.  The 25-30 Columbia Heights property went to Trump's son-in-law and LIVWRKS and then 107 Columbia Heights went to the owner of the Florida Panthers Hockey team.  The 25-30 Columbia Heights property was listed for 400 million, but Kuschner paid 700 million and the 107 Columbia Heights property went for 105 million.  All together they represent about 1.3 million square feet of the 3.2 million square feet for sale and those properties alone brought in close to 1 billion dollars!  I guess there are still properties the organization haven't listed yet.

Whats interesting is when he first started buying up those properties just a few years ago, who would have thought he would have been directly connected or tied in to such a world power?   ...  http://www.nbcnews.com/politics/2016-election/how-jared-kushner-could-end-heart-trump-white-house-n685161?cid=par-xfinity_20161117    ...   as he continues to be one of the highest bidders/investors, he may well get a few more  - 97 Columbia & 85 Jay are staged to be monumentally HUGH $$$ next year!     https://www.jw.org/en/news/releases/by-region/united-states/

Am I being overly sensitive to think that some comments on this publicly visible forum are not necessarily neutral as regards Donald Trump? I'm not saying it's easy to be neutral but it can be easy to stray from that stance, especially given the volatility of the recent election.

I didn't see anything in this thread that wasn't neutral but I'll be more careful.  Thank you...

I just found out that the property was bought by Jared Kushner by mere happenstance.

 

Then I recalled I remember seeing a video of a spokesperson explaining how well the business with the Witnesses had gone and how well maintained the buildings were. Did that have anything to do with it?

 

Does anybody remember what broadcast that part was in?
