Empire State owners get new offer

The owners of the Empire State Building have received another unsolicited offer to buy the landmark skyscraper, which is set to be the centrepiece of a real estate investment trust that would become publicly traded, according to a regulatory filing yesterday. Malkin Holdings, which oversees the Empire State Building's investors and operations, said that it was reviewing two unsolicited bids - one for $2.1bn and the other for $2bn - to buy the 102-story building.
