1.) A group of investors led by developer Abraham Brach, bought a one-story garage and two adjacent parcels in South Williamsburg for $12 million. The three parcels include a 8,200-square-foot lot at 814 Bedford Avenue, at the corner of Park Avenue, and two vacant lots at 824 and 826 Bedford Avenue. The properties have been in the family of the seller, Selma Prezant, since the 1970s, records show. One of the investors, Judah Klein of Parkview Management, owns the neighboring building at 828 Bedford Avenue, a six-story condo building with 11 residential units. Jakub Nowak and Jason Grunberg of Marcus & Millichap represented both sides in the transaction.

2.) A six-story mixed-use building in Williamsburg traded for $11.4 million.

The 37-unit building was built in 1925 and includes seven commercial units. Bestreich Realty Group represented both the buyer and the seller in the deal.
