NEW YORK CITY — JLL has arranged the $825 million sale of three Upper East Side multifamily properties totaling 858 units. The properties include 29,275 square feet of commercial space and are part of a larger,
five-property portfolio.

Solow Building Co. sold the assets to GO Partners, a partnership between Black Spruce Management and Orbach Affordable Housing. Local developer RXR, along with Macquarie Capital Principal Finance and the Qatar Investment Authority, contributed a $261 million preferred equity investment to the deal. Sheldon H. Solow, a New York City real estate developer and investor, originally developed the portfolio.

The properties included in the sale are the 234-unit One Sutton Place, located at 420 E. 61st St.; the 209-unit Two Sutton Place, located at 1113 York Ave., which includes 2,000 square feet of commercial space; and One East River Place, located at 525 E. 72nd St. and includes 27,275 square feet of commercial space.

The average unit size at the properties is 989 square feet. Additionally, the portfolio offers some of the few black glass facade residential buildings within Manhattan. The 408-unit property 685 1st Ave. was the first asset to close within the larger portfolio, with JLL representing the seller. An additional property is currently under contract between the parties.

Rob Hinckley, Jeff Julien, Scott Panzer, Andrew Scandalios, Steve Rutman, John Taylor, Jon Faxon and Joy Ryoo led the JLL advisory team.
