••• “Developers Steven Witkoff, Howard Lorber and Fisher Brothers have closed on one of the most expensive development sites ever purchased in lower Manhattan. The trio acquired the 10-story building at 101 Murray St. for $223 million from St. John’s University. […] Mr. Witkoff, Mr. Lorber and Fisher Brothers plan to tear the building down and erect a residential condominium tower with as many as 370,000 square feet in its place. If the developers end up building that big, it would mean that they paid a little over $600 per buildable square foot for the land alone—one of the highest prices ever paid for dirt downtown.” —Crain’s
