Slate Property Group and Meadow Partners have closed on the $59 million purchase of a development site at 1 Flatbush Avenue in Brooklyn, paying nearly $500 per square foot — a record deal for a Downtown Brooklyn development site.

The sellers, Capstone Equities and the Carlyle Group, purchased the two-story building as part of a $35 million deal a year ago, according to the New York Post. They have since relocated the tenants, providing vacant possession at the 120,000-square-foot site.

The deal was done at $491 per square foot, with retail — rents could creep up to $300 per square foot, sources said — being a big driver.
