The Ilibassi family’s Viking Management just bought a five-story rental building in Ridgewood from Charles Dayan’s Bonjour Capital for $21 million.

Bonjour owned the 45,800-square-foot former knitting mill at 71-13 60th Lane since 2012, the same year that leasing launched for the 50 apartments there. Eastern Consolidated’s Lipa Lieberman, who represented both sides, declined to comment.

There are 30 two-bedrooms, 12 one-bedrooms and eight three-bedrooms at the property, with prices ranging from $1,980 to $3,565 per month.

Bonjour, which paid $8.6 million in 2012, listed the building for $22 million in November. The firm’s projects include a new 18-story Tribeca apartment building, which it bought out of foreclosure.

Ridgewood, just a stop past Bushwick on the L train, and is seeing an influx of residents from that neighborhood. It has three historic districts and more than 1,000 landmarked buildings. Bushburg Properties is in the process of converting the Ridgewood Theater into a 50-unit rental building.
