As reported on The Real Deal: The report card grades the The Moinian Group with letter grade “F” including: tenant relations, safety, financial stability, vendor relations and the creation of good jobs.

The embattled real estate company, which operates 90 John Street, 100 John Street, 90 Washington, 123 Washington Street, 1 West Street, 17 Battery South and 17 Battery North, received a swarm of criticism for its handling of its buildings and its failure to act swiftly to get buildings back online.

“We have the utmost respect and concern for our tenants, and we are dedicated to their safety, comfort and efficiency,” Mr. Moinian wrote in a press release responding to criticism and published in Real Estate Weekly after the storm.
