Julia L. Wachter represents high-profile developers and real estate investors in super-luxury and mixed-use, commercial, retail and residential projects in the creation of (including the conversion to) condominium or cooperative forms of ownership. Ms. Wachter’s work on behalf of clients spans the many phases of the condominium and cooperative formation process, including the promulgation of condominium and cooperative governing documents, the preparation and filing of condominium and cooperative offering plans (or applications for no-action letters) with the New York State Department of Law, and the sale of individual residential and commercial condominium and cooperative units. She also counsels clients who are interested in investing in or financing condominium and cooperative projects.

As lead associate, Ms. Wachter has worked on a number of sophisticated and complex projects, both within and outside New York. Her most notable work includes: 

  •  Preparing and filing multiple condominium offering plans in connection with a major developer’s purchase of a $600 million real estate portfolio comprising approximately 750 apartments and commercial spaces across Manhattan to be converted to condominium ownership, with a total initial offering, in the aggregate, exceeding $1 billion.
  • Preparing and filing a New York offering plan and amendments for a prominent developer offering units within an out-of-state resort property to New York purchasers, with a total initial offering in excess of $100 million.
  • Preparing and negotiating commercial condominium documents and preparing a no-action application on behalf of a major developer in connection with the purchase of a high-profile development site on Park Avenue from a long-standing religious institution, and preparing offering plan materials for filing with the Department of Law in connection with the public offering of new construction super-luxury residential condominiums at the development site.
  • Preparing and filing a commercial condominium offering plan for a mid-sized commercial office building in Chinatown.
