The Investment Sales and Capital Advisory (ISCA), the new division within MNS, a leading residential brokerage firm, has arranged the sale for 310 North 7th St. Under the direction of David Behin, the 70,000 s/f buildable site located in Williamsburg, closed for $9.45 million. The buyer, a private developer, purchased the building from American Development Group.
Adrian Smilovici and Michael Fuller of Greiner-Maltz represented American Development Group, while Behin represented the buyer.
"As development in North Williamsburg stretches further from the waterfront and Bedford Ave., we expect to see many more transactions within these blocks, both West and East of the BQE," said Behin. "It's a great investment on behalf of the purchaser, who has plans to construct a mixed-use residential project."
Situated on the corners of North 7th St., Meeker Ave. and North 6th St., this parcel of land currently houses three connected buildings. Originally the home of the Ansbacher-Siegel Corporation's Color Factory, the site was most recently occupied by the Star Soap and Candle Company, who has since relocated to 29 Ash St.
This year alone, ISCA has sold over $50 million of real estate and note sales for development sites, while successfully raising over $20 million of equity for developers.
