Cheskie Weisz’s CW Realty is purchasing a massive Williamsburg assemblage for about $39 million, according to sources familiar with the deal.

The firm is buying the full blockfront on Hope Street between Keap and Rodney Streets, along with space on Keap and Rodney Streets themselves, from multiple sellers including Heatherwood Luxury Rentals. The assemblage has 475 feet of street frontage overall, and CW Realty plans to build a 145-unit seven-story rental building on the site with amenities including a doorman and fitness center.

Thirty percent of the project’s units will be set aside as affordable, and the remaining will be market rate. CW Realty also hopes to purchase additional air rights for the project.

Marcus and Millichap’s Said Boukhalfa brokered the deal.

“I think both sides, the buyer and the seller, are happy with the transaction,” he said, “because they both really got what they wanted.”

Heatherwood did not respond to a request for comment, and CW Realty declined to comment.

CW Realty is based in Williamsburg and filed plans earlier this year for a 13-story mixed-use building in Bushwick with 71 residential units. It is also behind the 96-unit Williamsburg rental building at 187 Kent Street, which it landed a $78 million construction loan for last January.

Heatherwood had been planning to build a 104,000-square-foot project with 100 residential units on part of the assemblage at 134 Hope Street before selling. The company landed a $215 million refinancing from Morgan Stanley earlier this year for its 58-story Tower 28 building in Long Island City.
