JEMB Realty picked up a Brooklyn parking lot with 185,000 buildable square feet for nearly $38.5 million.

The lot at 420-428 Albee Square sits across the street from the City Point megadevelopment in Downtown Brooklyn. The Girard family owned it for years, while a parking operator held a long-term lease. CPEX brokers Sean Kelly and Timothy King represented the sellers in the deal, which closed at $205 per buildable square foot.

The buyer also owns 75 Broad Street, which gained new tenants in TV production company NorthSouth Productions and pasta company De Cecco earlier this year. — Mark Maurer
