The building’s new owner benefits from a 25-year 421-a tax abatement set to expire in the year 2042. The landlord also benefits from supplemental income derived from 12 parking spaces and a card operated laundry service. 

Exclusive agents Jason Gold, Victor Sozio, Andre Sigourney and Marko Agbaba represented the owner and secured the buyer, a private investor.

“Along with offering high returns and great cash flows, the investor picked up a brand new construction building that benefits from the 421-a tax abatement,” said Gold, director at Ariel Property Advisors
