Rockpoint [TRDataCustom], a Boston-based private equity fund, and 60 Guilders, a Midtown-based investment firm led by two Savanna alumni, purchased the leasehold in 2013 for $27 million. They began shopping it in June, and sources estimated it would fetch $40 million.

Hodges Ward Elliott’s Daniel Parker, Will Silverman and Paul Gillen brokered the deal.

“Despite some of the noise in the marketplace, value-add multifamily remains duly sought after,” Silverman said.

The building, developed in 1960 by the William Kaufman Organization, also has the address of 852-860 Second Avenue. There is a parking garage and a Duane Reade on the ground floor.

Dalan, led by Danny Wrublin and his father Andy, owns about 50 buildings in the city, with roughly 2,000 rental apartments and 100 commercial units. Dalan recently moved to increase its office holdings, and launched a lending platform called SKW Funding earlier this year.
