The three-story building at 54-56 Third Ave. between 10th Street and 11th Street has arrived on the sales market.
Halstead has the listing:
The building has a 31.5-foot wide front and great existing as well as future solid income. There is over 13,500 sq ft of unused FAR, which gives tremendous opportunity for new development.
Well-built as a solid structure in red brick in 1901, it is updated with separate gas meters. The ground floor at 2,650 SF is a well-established and very busy Japanese's restaurant [Kotobuki] with a large basement. The second floor has 2,000 SF with a terrace, and the third floor has 2,000 SF with roof deck use.
Price: $15.5 million.
This is the latest building along this corridor to get listed. Last August, Investor Ari Zagdanski’s Kinsmen Property Group bought 62 and 64 Third Ave. at 11th Street for a reported $23 million.
Zagdanski told the Commercial Observer that he didn't have any immediate plans to redevelop the residential buildings, but said he was drawn to the neighborhood because of its new developments, including the nearby Moxy East Village around the corner on 11th Street.
The 13-story, 285-room hotel from the Marriott brand is expected to open this October.
