Embattled insurance giant AIG may be near a deal to sell two buildings—70 Pine Street and 72 Wall Street which are connected by skywalk—for $100 million to an overseas buyer, according to the Post. The deal is rumored to be for $100 million: "The buyers expect to create a mixed-use development that could include residential and retail. But because of anti-terror legislation, the Dept. of State will have to approve any overseas buyer." Well, $100 million is still way less than AIG's executive compensation payouts (AIG has received $182.5 billion in government aid). The company plans to move its employees in 2010.
