Benedict Realty Group acquired two rental buildings in Kew Gardens for $53.5 million in a single off-market transaction.

BRG bought a 103-unit, 84,605-square-foot apartment building at 84-17 125th Street from Dale Realty Co. for $25.5 million, paying about $300 a square foot. The majority of units at the two-story building are stabilized, according to Reonomy. The property also includes five commercial units.

Daniel Benedict’s firm also purchased a six-story, 82,091-square-foot building at 80-15 Grenfell Street for around $28 million, Real Estate Weekly reported.
