Light I-Sales Precede Heavy Eating

Four sales between $10M and $40M as Williamsburg rental sells below 2013 price

During the short week preceding the Thanksgiving holiday, multifamily sales continued to light up the mid-level i-sales market. Three of four sales recorded between $10 million and $40 million were residential buildings, with two properties selling in Manhattan and one each in Brooklyn and the Bronx.

One rental building sold for half-a-million less than its 2013 purchase price, while the former head of real estate development at WeWork helped sell a property for Spaxel. Thanksgiving week’s mid-market sales combined for $55.6 million on the heels of a $265 million effort the prior week. Here are the details:

1. Juda Rosenfeld sold a 34-unit rental building at 180 Scholes Street in Williamsburg for $18 million. The buyer was Sidharth Lakani through a limited liability company. Fannie Mae financed the Brooklyn purchase with a $15.7 million loan. Rosenfeld bought the 52,500-square-foot building in 2013 for $18.5 million. In an unrelated transaction in January 2020, Rosenfeld sold a 42-unit rental building at 185 South Fourth Street in Williamsburg for nearly $32 million.
