Manhattan, NY Jonata Dayan, executive vice president-condo/co-op sales, and Jonathan Ben-Dayan, director/leasing of HSP Real Estate Group, a member of NAI Global, have arranged the sale of an office co-op at 450 West 31st St. to an online travel agency and global air travel consolidator. Dayan and Ben-Dayan represented the seller, British photographer James Galloway, for the 3,985 s/f, partial ninth floor office, which sold for $3.315 million. This was the fifth HSP deal at the building in the past year, which included four co-op sales and one lease.
“This is a highly desirable building ideally situated on the corner of West 31st St. and 10th Ave., easily accessible to transportation and surrounded by great light and air,” said Dayan. “In addition, the units offer 15 ft. high ceilings and oversized windows. It was one of the reasons the 9th floor was such a great space for a photography studio for over 20 years.”
Galloway, who bought the unit in 1996, put it on the market with Dayan and Ben-Dayan after his former tenant, Good Light Studio relocated to Chicago. The buyer was represented by Kartik Desai, president & CEO, Tamarkin Co.
Dayan and Ben-Dayan are currently marketing a 3,930 s/f unit in the building for lease.
