iLEVEL Releases Private Capital Data Platform 7.0

NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–

iLEVEL, the leading portfolio monitoring, analytics and transparency platform for the global private capital markets, announces today the release of iLEVEL 7.0.

This latest release to the iLEVEL cloud-based, SaaS platform includes significantly improved design and usability, along with dramatic functionality enhancements across all asset classes and firm types. Together, these improvements make iLEVEL 7.0 the premier solution for any private capital firm or investor wanting to control their data, and realize the results.

“We’ve been blown away by the positive reaction of our clients to iLEVEL 7.0. It represents a quantum leap forward in user experience, flexibility and functionality, and dramatically extends and enhances our ability to add value throughout the private capital ecosystem,” said Kevin Black, CEO of iLEVEL. “For investment firms and their limited partners – across all private asset classes – nothing else comes close.”

New and enhanced features include:

  • Portal and iPad app redesign. A new navigation and analytics system enables users to easily access portfolio-level, asset-level, and fund-level reports, as well as company- or industry-specific KPIs and analytics.
  • Enhanced data visualization. New display options for data presentations enable users to choose from document lists, Google Maps™, and waterfall charts. Presentations can be printed or saved as images and used to enrich reports.
  • Data validation tools. New business rules and exception reports minimize the risk of invalid data entering the system even further, and facilitate the data approval process (e.g., restatement notifications, etc.).
  • Integrated Document Library. Data cited within a specific report or presentation can now be tied directly to the source document in the iLEVEL Document Library or displayed directly on the portal.

“iLEVEL has continued to evolve the platform over the years, and the newly redesigned portal continues to push the envelope of what’s possible,” said Bill Murphy, Senior Managing Director and Chief Technology Officer at The Blackstone Group. “The latest enhancements will enable us to identify and report on trends with even greater visual flexibility and detail.”

The number of firms on iLEVEL has doubled in the past year and includes alternative investment firms of varying sizes that employ a wide range of investment strategies including Private Equity, Real Estate, Credit and Venture Capital. GP clients use iLEVEL to track over 11,500 assets while leading LPs track over 62,000 assets across more than 7,000 fund investments.

Loss of historic Royal Hotel brings people of Yampa together

— Residents of the small South Routt Town of Yampa have signed on to take the first steps toward reinvigorating the town in the wake of the January fire that claimed an historical landmark and gathering place, the Royal Hotel.

More than 60 people packed into the Yampa Ladies Aid Hall Thursday night to listen to local economic development experts Jane Blackstone, Tracy Barnett, Carl Steidtmann and Noreen Moore, who urged the group to set small, affordable goals to gradually begin to breathe some new life into a historic Western town.

“It was inspiring to me to see that kind of community turnout and caring,” Blackstone, Steamboat Springs Chamber Resort Association economic development director, said Friday. “They have very authentic Western heritage and a real experience for people visiting this part of the world. They have a lot to build on.”

She added that at the end of the meeting, a significant number of those in attendance signed their names to three projects lists.

They’ll rally to create a new mural on the side of a building, plant their own flower barrels and tackle a list of fix-up projects. That includes refurbishing the picket fences with entry arches that are a recognizable design element in front of homes around town.

Yampa had a population of 429 in 2013, down from 443 in 2000, according to the U.S. Census Bureau.

“We talked about their strengths and things they could do,” Barnett, director of Mainstreet Steamboat, said. “I spoke about how you can start with baby steps — a Saturday afternoon painting party. You can get wooden pallets and make planter boxes with very little money, that will show there is a community and start building on that. It activates the streets and shows there is community pride. Once things get fixed up, then somebody else starts to care.”

Accomplishing small improvements becomes tangible evidence of positive change, Blackstone said.

When the 109-year-old Royal Hotel burned down in Yampa Jan. 5, the town lost a community-gathering place as well as a source of property and sales tax revenues in a municipality that has budgeted to raise about $110,000 this year from those two sources combined.

County Commissioner Tim Corrigan, who lives outside Yampa, said this week that he is actively encouraging the town to find a way to clean up the charred beams and rubble of the hotel, which still mar the downtown commercial district.

One of the remaining flagship businesses in the town is Montgomery’s General Merchandise, which harkens back to another era with its diverse merchandise and its reliance on an old-fashioned manual cash register.

Barnett said people who attended the meeting lamented the disappearance of a sign advertising Montgomery’s from Colorado Highway 131 (which runs right by Yampa without affording a view of the little historic downtown) because it was found to have been improperly placed on county property.

Not far from Montgomery’s, the historic Crossans’ Market building is being restored with grants from the State Historical Fund. The main floor, with 60-year-old retail fixtures and advertising signs in place, will serve as a historical display, while the upstairs will serve as town offices.

There is also enthusiasm among a community of artists living in Yampa for establishing a gallery in an empty building not far from the beginning of Routt County Road 7. The road leaves directly from Yampa’s commercial district and winds up the Bear River to all of the hiking, fishing, camping and hunting in the Flat Tops Wilderness Area.

Blackstone said that during a recent presentation to the South Routt Economic Development Council in Phippsburg, she urged that board’s members to work to define the narratives they can tell about their region. Those stories are needed to help prospective visitors understand the memorable experiences they could have in South Routt.

Refining the stories embedded in Yampa’s history could also become one of the next steps in the little town’s revival, she said.

Officials say moving the PawSox out of Pawtucket will be a blow to their city's economy

Local officials in Pawtucket, Rhode Island say moving the Pawtucket Red Sox to the state’s capital will devastate the smaller city’s economy.

Boston Red Sox president Larry Lucchino and a group of Rhode Island businessmen announced Monday they had purchased the Triple-A baseball club for an undisclosed amount from the widow of its longtime owner and are planning to move the team to Providence. They are eyeing a piece of land along the Providence River for a new ballpark.

Blackstone Valley Tourism Council president Robert Billington says the new owners should reinvest in Pawtucket. The city was an industrial center before the Great Depression.

Billington says moving the team will be a “severe blow” to the city’s economy. He says the team attracts 750,000 visitors a year.

Chicago’s Tallest Building Breaks Record With $1.5B Agreement

Willis Tower, Chicago’s tallest building, is about to break another record. When the world’s largest private equity real estate owner, Blackstone Group, pays $1.5 billion for the 110-story Windy City icon, it will shatter the $850 million record price tag for Chicago set in 2014 with the sale of a nearby 60-story tower across the river.

Blackstone, the New York-based firm, has had its representatives visiting Willis Tower to perform due diligence, Crain’s Chicago Business reported on Friday.

The purchase is significant, even for a firm with $81 billion of real estate assets under its management, according to Crain’s report. Real Capital Analytics, a New York-based research firm, says it would be the 24th office deal in the U.S. to surpass the $1 billion mark, but only the fourth outside of the Big Apple. The 1,451-foot-tall property, formerly known as the Sears Tower, earns about $10,000 of income every hour.

At its projected sale price, Willis Tower is almost $400 per square foot for 3.8 million square feet of office space. For New York investors Joseph Chetrit and Joseph Moinian and the Illinois-based American Landmark Properties, who purchased the tower for $840 million in 2004, there is a hefty profit to be made on the agreement with Blackstone, Crain’s reports.

Willis Tower, which completed construction in 1973, doesn’t command the rent prices of newer Chicago buildings. Only 84 percent of it is leased, and a new owner would need to spend money to attack new leasers to the empty spaces. Also, because the building is more than 40 years old, maintenance and modernization will require significant capital.

The observation deck on the 103rd floor provides a steady cash flow, in addition to retail and restaurant space, broadcast space and antennas, and building naming rights managed by Willis Group Holdings, a building tenant. Skydeck, the building’s popular tourist attraction, generates more than $25 million in revenue annually, according to Crain’s report. Total building operating income for 2015 is estimated at $88.6 million – that breaks down to $48.7 million for office, retail and restaurant space, $11.1 million from broadcasting, and the revenues from the Skydeck.

Blackstone in talks to buy Willis Tower for $1.5 billion

Willis Tower, Chicago’s tallest building, may soon have an equally big owner: Blackstone Group, the world’s largest private equity real estate owner.

Blackstone representatives have been visiting the building to perform due diligence on the 110-story icon, and it is looking to buy the West Loop tower for one of its funds…

Loss of PawSox will devastate city, officials say

Loss of PawSox will devastate city, officials say – Quincy Herald-Whig | Illinois & Missouri News, Sports

By AMY ANTHONY

Associated Press

PAWTUCKET, R.I. (AP) – For 40 years, Pawtucket resident Mike Shloul has lived within walking distance of McCoy Stadium, where the PawSox have played home games since 1973.

“I felt like somebody died,” Shloul said of hearing the news that the Pawtucket Red Sox are leaving and might be headed to the neighboring capital city of Providence. The team, he said, is “part of the culture in Pawtucket.”

The expected departure of the Triple-A baseball club takes away one of few bright spots from an old mill town that has never fully recovered from the Great Depression, officials in the Rhode Island city said Tuesday.

“To take the economic activity out of the city’s income stream is a severe blow,” said Robert Billington, a local tourism official who said he was shocked to learn the team’s new owners want to leave.

Boston Red Sox president Larry Lucchino and a group of Rhode Island businessmen announced Monday they had purchased the franchise for an undisclosed amount from the widow of its longtime owner and are planning to move the team. Investor James Skeffington confirmed the new owners are eyeing a piece of land along the Providence River for a new ballpark but said nothing is final.

The new owners said making improvements to McCoy Stadium would be too expensive. The stadium was built in 1942 and renovated in the late 90s.

But Billington, president of the Blackstone Valley Tourism Council, said he thinks McCoy Stadium could be maintained the way Fenway Park in Boston has been.

“If they can make it in Fenway, I think they can make it here,” he said. “I think there’s a desire not to.”

Billington said he had hoped the new owners would want to reinvest in Pawtucket. The city was a major manufacturer during the American Industrial Revolution, but has struggled to improve its economy since the 1930s. It’s now one of the poorest cities in the state, with a median household income of $40,379.

The team brought fame and fun to the city, he said, along with about 750,000 visitors a year.

“There are a lot of businesses that are supported by the PawSox,” Billington said.

That includes the Right Spot Diner, which overlooks the stadium. Owner Julia Tsimikas said Tuesday she is worried about how losing the team will affect the business she and her family opened in 1975.

“It’s going to be a loss for the whole city,” Tsimikas said.

Pawtucket Mayor Donald Grebian said there is both an economic and psychological impact to the departure of the team. He said he tried to keep the team in Pawtucket but the city wasn’t “on the radar” of the new owners.

The new owners said if they built a ballpark in Providence they would use their own funds but would ask the city and the state for support.

Billington said any state help should focus on keeping the team in Pawtucket.

“We’re not fighting against anyone,” Billington said. “It’s for Pawtucket. Let’s figure out how to do it here.”
