The Manhattes Group arranged the sale of four industrial parcels totaling 22,675 s/f across from Brooklyn's Navy Yard.

Alan Shmaruk and Michael Sherman of the Soho-based Manhattes Group represented the seller and the purchaser.
The Manhattes Group has been active in transforming the Navy Yard area, having recently sold 29 Ryerson St., a 220,000 s/f industrial building slated for transformation into a tech/office building. "Due to the growth in the Brooklyn Navy Yard and its location within the Brooklyn Tech Triangle, we were able to identify a party who had a desire to establish itself in this rapidly growing area," said Alan Shmaruk, the principal of The Manhattes Group.
The purchaser, a foreign multinational corporation, intends to build a corporate headquarters on the site. This will be the first private new construction project in the immediate area.
