Senior Executive Managing Director, David Schechtman, and Managing Director, Inbal Himelblau-Denman, are representing the seller in this transaction.
Located at 1024 Second Avenue, the four-story property contains five residential units, one commercial unit, and spans 4,900 square feet. Situated in the heart of the Midtown business district, investors benefit from built-in commercial foot traffic and a flourishing residential market. Located on the northeast corner of East 54th Street and Second Avenue, residents of the building enjoy direct access to Equinox, Soul Cycle, and a plethora of food and entertainment options on the block. The offering consists of five free market apartments and one office space renting at below-market rents, allowing potential investors a strong in-place cash flow with future upside in repositioning the units. The ground floor retail space is currently leased to Lenny’s, one of the fastest growing food and beverage chains in the country, until December 2022.
Bounded by East 42nd Street to East 59th Street from Fifth Avenue to the East River, Midtown East is known for its luxurious restaurants, world-class retail, and iconic architecture that is recognized around the globe.
