Chetrit, Levy put 620 Sixth up for grabs

A partnership of Joseph Chetrit, Yair Levy and Charles Dayan is looking to unload 620 Sixth Avenue. According to the Observer, the nearly 800,000-square-foot mammoth anchored by Bed Bath & Beyond could fetch around $500 million. The landlords purchased the Chelsea property for $289.8 million in 2005, taking out a $235 million mortgage that they nearly defaulted on in the years following. But for a buyer, the building appears to have an upside. There are 250,000 square feet of additional development rights atop the existing structure, plus 75,000 square feet at an adjacent site zoned for hotel development.

New building for sale near the High Line

Just a few days after the opening of the High Line’s second phase last month came an opportunity for buyers to get in on the High Line action. CB Richard Ellis is marketing a 200,000-square-foot property at 511-541 West 25th Street, between 10th and 11th avenues, according to Crain’s. Tesla Motors has a showroom in the building. Darcy Stacom, a vice chairman at CBRE, predicted the new listing would fetch about $500 per square foot, or $100 million. “This is a neighborhood that is coming into its own, and this is an opportunity to get in on it,” Stacom said.
