A $9.05 million sale of a multi-family building in the Washington Heights neighborhood has broken records for the area, according to a statement from Massey Knakal Realty Services today.

The 44,442-square-foot building, at 134 Haven Avenue, sold at “the highest price per unit ever paid for a strictly residential property with an elevator in Washington Heights,” according to Massey Knakal’s comparable sales data, the statement said. The six-story building is between 172nd and 173rd streets.

“Multi-family properties of this class will always be in high demand and trade for a premium,” said Robert Shapiro, vice president of sales at Massey Knakal, who was the only broker involved in the transaction. The sellers were Daniel and Andrew Wrublin of Dalan Management.

The previous record-holding sale was for 920 Riverside Drive, between 161st and 162nd streets, which sold for $15.68 million in 2010, Massey Knakal said. — Guelda Voien
