The Curved House is a modern residence with distinctive lines. The house’s material palette is an eclectic mix of brick, ipe, cedar, and Spanish tile. A signature masonry wall gently curves in two places signifying the primary entrance and reappears, again with a curve, to form the west wall of the pool cabana. The curving form of the terra cotta Spanish tile reflects, on a more detailed scale, the gesture of the curve. Both the fire pit and the pool’s design play upon the sinuous motif as well.

Mack-Cali Realty names Mahbod Nia as CEO

first_img Commercial Real Estatemack-cali realtymaryanne gilmartintristate-weekly Share on FacebookShare on TwitterShare on LinkedinShare via Email Share via Shortlink Tammy Jones, who was newly appointed as Mack-Cali’s board chairperson, said Nia’s experience at NorthStar as well as his familiarity with Mack-Cali as a board member will let him “hit the ground running.”Gilmartin took the temporary leadership position after a massive shakeup of Mack-Cali’s board, in which an activist investor pushed for the resignation of then-CEO Michael DeMarco.The agreement between Gilmartin and the REIT had her sign on for six months or until the company found a new CEO, whichever came first. According to SEC filings, Mack-Cali agreed to pay MAG Partners a monthly fee of $150,000 for Gilmartin’s service, along with a one-time cash sign-on bonus of $300,000 and a completion bonus of $200,000 at the end of her term.Contact Akiko Matsuda Email Address* Mack-Cali Realty CEO Mahbod Nia and MaryAnne Gilmartin (Photos via Mack-Cali Realty)More than six months after a shake-up of its C-suite, Mack-Cali has named a new CEO.Mahbod Nia, a former head of NorthStar Realty Europe, will take the reins at the New Jersey-based based REIT as of March 8. He has been serving as a director on Mack-Cali’s board since June.During his tenure at NorthStar, Nia oversaw the REIT’s transformation, which helped drive a 40 percent increase in per-share net asset value.MaryAnne Gilmartin, who joined Mack-Cali last July as interim CEO, will serve as a special advisor during the transition period, according to the REIT. In the meantime, she stepped down as the chairperson of the company’s board and will not run for re-election. She will return to her full-time role as CEO of MAG Partners after Mack-Cali’s annual shareholder meeting.Gilmartin said she joined Mack-Cali to drive change and is pleased with her achievements during her temporary tenure.Read moreRent-a-CEO: Inside Gilmartin’s short-term gig at Mack-CaliMack-Cali shakeup: MaryAnne Gilmartin named interim CEOA new boardroom era begins at Mack-Cali Message* Share via Shortlink Full Name* Tagslast_img read more

CMIP5 diversity in southern westerly jet projections related to historical sea ice area; strong link to strengthening and weak link to shift

first_imgA major feature of projected changes in Southern Hemisphere climate under future scenarios of increased greenhouse gas concentrations is the poleward shift and strengthening of the main eddy-driven belt of mid-latitude near-surface westerly winds (the westerly jet). However, there is large uncertainty in projected twenty-first century westerly jet changes across different climate models. Here the World Climate Research Programme’s Coupled Model Intercomparison Project phase 5 (CMIP5) models were evaluated to assess linkages between diversity in simulated sea ice area (SIA), Antarctic amplification and diversity in projected 21st century changes in the westerly jet following the Representative Concentration Pathway 8.5 scenario (RCP8.5). To help disentangle cause and effect in the coupled model analysis, uncoupled atmosphere-only fixed sea-surface experiments from CMIP5 were also evaluated. It is shown that across all seasons approximately half of the variance in projected RCP8.5 jet strengthening is explained statistically by inter-model differences in simulated historical SIA, whereby CMIP5 models with larger baseline SIA exhibit more ice retreat and less jet strengthening in the future. However, links to jet shift are much weaker and only statistically significant in autumn and winter. It is suggested that a significant cross-model correlation between historical jet strength and projected strength change (r = -0.58) is, at least in part, a result of atmospherically-driven historical SIA biases, which then feed back onto the atmosphere in future projections. The results emphasize that SIA appears to act in concert with proximal changes in sea-surface temperature gradients in relation to model diversity in westerly jet projections.last_img read more
