Five mid-market investment sales were recorded in the city last week for a total of $103.6 million, smashing the previous week’s total of just $39.6 million.

Of those, the three biggest deals were for office buildings, including one with development potential in Midtown. Two of the five deals were located in Manhattan; another two were in Queens; and the Bronx rounded out the list.

The Real Deal defines mid-market deals as those between $10 million and $30 million. Here are more details for the week ending May 14.

The partners plan to combine the parcel, which has 32,000 square feet of development potential, with an adjacent parcel at 417 Park Avenue for an office project. Together, the two properties have more than 250,000 square feet of buildable space.
