The purchase of 390 Wadsworth Avenue was brokered by Sasha Berg of GFI Realty who said the purchase was an “opportunity to acquire a long-term asset in a prime Manhattan neighborhood that is clearly on the rise.”
“This transaction speaks volumes to the continued ascendance of Washington Heights,” Berg said in a statement. “The investment of a savvy buyer like Barberry Rose in this submarket is further validation that Washington Heights has great potential in its future growth.”
