GFI Realty Services has finalized the $15.5-million sale of 2261 Ocean Ave., a six-story apartment building in Brooklyn’s Madison section. Senior director Erik Yankelovich represented the unidentified seller, while associate director Josh Orlander procured the buyer, also undisclosed.
A pre-war elevator building, the 52,812-square-foot corner property contains 54 rent-stabilized apartments. The new buyer plans to implement modest renovations and lease up the vacant units.
“The property has been owned for decades by a group of local investors, and they decided to liquidate this jointly-held property and capitalize on the current strength of the market,” said Yankelovich. “We received interest from several potential buyers, and we were able to negotiate a very strong deal for the seller, with the $15.5-millon sales price representing a cap rate of approximately 3.3%.”
The buyer sought “to expand his significant local portfolio, and he was very intrigued by this elevator building,” said Orlander.
