    The lender of a foreclosed Williamsburg property that acquired it from an auction last week has put the plot on the market for $52.5 million, Crain’s reported.

    The site is 421 Kent Avenue, located two blocks away from the Williamsburg Bridge. Just over 2 acres in size and with the potential to house a 443,000-square-foot structure, the first developers, Isaac Hager and the late Chaim Lax, reportedly defaulted on their $17 million loan in 2008. The previous year, they had paid $42.6 million for the land. [more]
