Sun Equity Partners Buys Silk Mill Lofts in New Jersey
UNION CITY, N.J. — Sun Equity Partners has acquired Silk Mill Lofts, a historic commercial building located at 540 39th St. in Union City, for an undisclosed price. The buyer has a multi-million-dollar capital improvement program planned for the 125,000-square-foot property — which is dedicated to artist-work spaces — to upgrade the exterior, common spaces, building systems and loft-style studios. The property is currently 55 percent occupied by practicing artists and creative professionals involved in the visual arts, photography, sculpture, painting and glass works. Lee Levine Architects is serving as architect for the renovation of the property, which was originally built in 1874.
