In 2003, he made his mark by buying the General Motors Building to get a record price of $1.4 billion. The worth of the skyscraper shortly doubled thanks in part to his setting an all-glass, submerged Apple shop in the building’s plaza; an thought he personally and successfully tossed to Steve Jobs. In February 2007, through the peak of the property marketplace, Macklowe bought seven Manhattan skyscrapers for $6.8 billion from the Blackstone Group. Macklowe used $50 million of his own cash and financed the remainder with $7 billion in short-term loans (due February 2008) from Deutsche Bank and the freely traded hedge fund the Fortress Investment Group. In early 2008, Macklowe neglected to refinance a $5.8 billion loan from Deutsche Bank. and lost all seven buildings. One of the buildings forfeited comprise the General Motors Building (which collateralized the loan) along with the Credit Lyonnais Building.
