    Isn’t Stuy Town a bit weird because it was a real estate complex developed by MetLife for their employees originally and became something else? It does not seem like a traditional real estate investment in many ways.Report

      It wasn’t developed for MetLife employees, but it was developed by MetLife.

      The only reason I know about the existence of Stuy Town is because it was the site of such a big, pre-Civil Rights Movement battle over discrimination in housing.Report

        If I recall, it was initially developed for returning soldiers and their families.

        While it’s a traditional real estate asset class, the size of the deal and the attention from the various interest groups makes it anything but traditional.Report
