Mid-market investment sales picked up in the city last week with four transactions, all in the outer boroughs. That compared to just two deals in the same $10 million to $30 million range the week before. Three were for multifamily buildings with a diversity of sellers that included private equity and the city Housing Authority. The fourth involved a colorful hotel building and an Ohio-based educational nonprofit.

1. BlackRock Realty Advisors sold a multifamily building at 105-05 69th Avenue in Flushing, to Global One Investments for $26.5 million. The transaction took place between the companies’ respective LLCs.

2. Property management firm ABCNY Inc., acting through its LLC, sold 1107 Dekalb Avenue in Bed-Stuy for $18 million. The buyer was an educational nonprofit, Youth Art Life, via its LLC. The hotel was reportedly constructed as “fully automatic,” with guests checking in through kiosks.
