The wholesale company purchased two commercial condominium units in the building for $19.3 million. Both units span roughly 10,300 square feet and are located on the lower floors. Time Equities paid $61 million for the property in 2007 and converted it into office condos.

2.) The Gindi family shelled out $19 million for commercial space at Northwind Group’s 66 Pearl Street, a mixed-use building located in the Financial District. The commercial condominium unit includes 7,200 square feet of retail space, which is home to Scandinavian coffeehouse FIKA and Mexican restaurant La Dama. The remaining 4,054 square feet is used for storage. The property also holds 42 rental apartments, with prices ranging from just under $3,000 for a studio to $6,500 for a three-bedroom unit. Northwind, a boutique real estate investment firm based Downtown, bought the property in 2014.

3.) In the Bayside neighborhood of Queens, a 66-key hotel traded hands for $14.1 million. A partnership led by Hyon Paek and Choon Taik Lim acquired the Anchor Inn at 215-34 Northern Boulevard from Northern Motor Inn Inc. City records show Northern Motor Inn owned the property since 1978.

4.) Brisa Builders, in cooperation with the Housing Partnership Development Corporation, acquired a seven-parcel development site in Brownsville from the Church of God of East Flatbush for $12.6 million.
