Multifamily building transactions were the name of the game among last week’s New York City mid-market investment sales, with a Brooklyn Heights building trading for $10 million and another in Washington Heights for $13 million.
1. For roughly $18.4 million, an entity managed by BlackRock Realty Advisors parted with a pre-war apartment building at 110 Bennett Avenue in Manhattan’s Hudson Heights neighborhood. The buyer of the six-story, 51-unit property was anonymous, going by the entity “110 Bennett Apartments LLC.”
2. A limited partnership connected to Benchmark Real Estate Group sold an apartment building at 35 Pineapple Street, a couple of blocks from the Brooklyn waterfront in Brooklyn Heights, that it had bought in 2016 for $10.3 million. The five-story, 14-unit building sold for $14.92 million to “Anpora Pineapple 35, LLC.”
3. Douglas Eisenberg’s A&E Real Estate Holdings shelled out $13.1 million for a 50-unit, six-story rental building at 81 Wadsworth Avenue in Washington Heights that had been owned by private investor Morris Weinberg, sources said. Capital One provided $6.5 million in financing for the deal. Marcus & Millichap’s Peter Von Der Ahe, Seth Glasser, Joe Koicim and Jacob Kahn represented both parties.
4. In Kips Bay, a limited liability corporation with Michael Tsoumpas as member sold 157 Lexington Avenue, a seven-story multifamily property with 12 apartments, for $11.5 million. The buyer was another LLC tied to Shaun Ajodan, president of Shaun Gems, a Midtown-based importer and supplier of precious gems. Northfield Bank provided $5 million in financing to the new owner.
