Touro College building hits the market
The building that once housed Touro College at 160 Lexington Avenue on the corner of 30th Street is up for sale or net lease, according to Newmark Knight Frank, which has the listing. The 21,700-square-foot building doesn’t have an asking price, said a Newmark spokesperson, who added that the seller is fielding bids from potential buyers. Howard Kessler, an executive managing director with Newmark, told The Real Deal
that while the building hasn’t received any formal offers yet,
interested buyers have been submitting bids “north [of the] $700 per square
foot,” range. The century-old building saw a total renovation in 1987, and would be best suited “as a single-user building,” according to a statement from Newmark. Reports indicate that Eastern Consolidated had previously had the listing, for two years, beginning in 2007. Update: a call to Newmark revealed that the Eastern Consolidated sign is old and that it plans to remove the sign as soon as possible.
