The Hirsch family picked up a Downtown Brooklyn residential-and-retail building near the MetroTech Center for $46.7 million or roughly $1,300 per square foot.

The four-story, 36,000-square-foot building at 72 Willoughby Street contains 30 market-rate rental units and three retail stores.

A group of several investors, including an LLC with links to investor Sam Krugman, had owned the property since 2013, when they paid just $12 million, property records show.

The Hirsch family, which could not be reached for comment, has roots in the Meatpacking District and also owns a 15-story building at 450 West 14th Street. Sources said the purchase is part of a 1031 exchange.

David Schechtman, Mark Steinmetz and Lipa Lieberman of Meridian Capital Group represented both parties in the deal. When contacted by TRD, Schechtman confirmed his involvement in the transaction but declined to comment further.

The expiration of 421a and an unusually large volume of new multifamily supply have contributed to a slump in Brooklyn investment sales in 2016, according to TerraCRG, whose CEO Ofer Cohen said earlier this month that sales were down 65 percent this year.
