Spruce Capital Partners is asking $81.5 million for a newly opened, five-story Bushwick rental building known as Colony 1209.
Just seven months ago, the Flatiron District-based Spruce bought the building at 1209 DeKalb Avenue, between Evergreen and Bushwick avenues, from Read Property Group for $58 million. Leasing launched that same month, in April.
Massey Knakal Realty Services’ Stephen Palmese and Michael Amirkhanian are marketing the nearly 120,000-square-foot building, which features 127 apartments and 41 parking spaces.
Read purchased the site in 2012 in a foreclosure auction, then diverted from the previous owner’s plan to build condominiums at the site, as previously reported. [NYO] — Mark Maurer
