The middle of the investment sales market is off to a running start in 2021.

Seven sales in the $10 to $30 million range — plus one just outside of it, at $32 million — combined for a total weekly volume of $143 million. That’s a good deal more than the $81 million across four sales the week before.

A retail condo sale by an LLC affiliated with SL Green topped the list, and there were deals in four of the five boroughs. (Sorry, Staten Island.) Here are more details for the week ending Jan. 8:

1. A limited liability company affiliated with SL Green sold three commercial condo units at 248 Bedford Avenue in Williamsburg for a combined $32 million. The address is also known as 195 Berry Street. CBRE’s Dan Kaplan represented the seller. Abraham Bennun’s Ethika Capital was the buyer.

2. William Lerner, president of Imperial Parking, purchased a medical building at 7601 4th Avenue in Bay Ridge for $24 million. The deal was one of three completed as a 1031 exchange. The seller was Dr. Shahrokh Abiri, a radiologist affiliated with ProHealth.

3. Liberty Coca-Cola Beverages acquired a 120,125-square-foot parking lot at 55-25 58th Street in Maspeth for $18.5 million.
