The seller was an entity tied to Bernard-Charles Inc., and the buyers were ARGO Real Estate and Bsafal, a subsidiary of Safal Constructions India Private Limited. Avison Young’s James Nelson, Brandon Polakoff, Mitch Levine and Toku Saito represented the seller, who had owned the building for decades, property records show.
