NEW YORK CITY — Marcus & Millichap has arranged the sale of 150 52nd St., a 123,785-square-foot, two-story industrial building on New York Bay in the Sunset Park neighborhood of Brooklyn. The $19.5 million sale price equates to $157 per square foot — and $2.7 million over the asking price. Jakub Nowak and Hemal Patel of Marcus & Millichap represented the seller, 150 52nd Street LLC, a national private equity partnership.

Located between First Avenue and Second Avenue and occupying most of the block it stands on, 150 52nd St. is within the Southwest Brooklyn Industrial Business Zone and near the Bush Terminal Pier Park green space and sports field development. The location is also inside the New York City Economic Development Corp.’s Sustainable Urban Industrial District, which is part of the city’s Sunset Plan Park Vision aimed at promoting investment and development in the Sunset Park waterfront industrial area. Access to the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway is nearby.

The property has short-term leases in place. By 2018, 90 percent of the space will be available and all current leases and renewals expire in 2021. This gives the buyer the opportunity to add value through redevelopment and increasing rents. However, the current low rents presented a financing challenge and limited the buyer pool to cash buyers, according to Nowak.

The property features a 30,631-square-foot open parking lot, 201,930 square feet of buildable air rights, high ceilings, loading docks, heavy power and two 10,000-pound capacity freight elevators. The building is currently configured as seven rentals.
