INVESTMENT SALES IN MANHATTAN AND BROOKLYN

Manhattan investment sales stayed almost flat in June with $3.49 billion in deals recorded,35 percent above the 12-month average. The strong showing was largely thanks to one giant deal, which saw the Related Companies and Allianz buy up WarnerMedia’s 1.5 millionsquare-foot office condominium at 30 Hudson Yards for $2.2 billion. Brooklyn’s investment sales market bounced back somewhat in June with $492 million in deals recorded, 75 percent up from the month prior but still 17 percent below the 12-month average. The borough’s top deal went to the Holterbosch family, a German-American beer dynasty, which picked up a market-rate rental building at 100 South 4th Street from Meadow Partners for $61 million.

INVESTMENT SALES IN QUEENS AND THE BRONX

Queens’ investment sales market slowed down in June with $409 million in deals recorded,17 percent down from the previous month and 11 percent below the 12-month average. The borough’s top deals were for a pair of rent-stabilized buildings in Flushing, which Zara Realty acquired for $80 million. The Bronx’s investment sales market continued to regress from April’s peak, with $229 million in deals recorded in June, down 11 percent from the month prior and slightly under the 12-month average. The Holterbosch family made a borough-topping buy here as well, picking up an Amazon last-mile warehouse at 1300 Viele Avenue for $70 million — almost three times what sellers MRP Realty and AEW Capital Management paid for it in 2017.
