Just three months after Anthropologie backed out of plans for a store at 250 Bowery, David Edelstein’s Tristar Capital has paid $15.75 million for the retail condominium, Bowery Boogie reported.
Edelstein told Bowery Boogie that he was “excited to play a more active role in the ongoing transformation of this trendy district.”
The deal for the 11,000-square-foot property was brokered by RKF on behalf of the sellers, Zach Vella and Justin Ehrlich, co-founders of VE Equities and developers of the condos on the upper floors. Vella and Ehrlich bought the property in 2010 for nearly $10 million. Bowery Boogie did not include a comment from the sellers.
In June, Anthropologie nixed its lease commitment because the landlords allegedly did not meet several performance dates following Hurricane Sandy storm damage.
