The dirt on dirt: Mark Twain's memo must have got lost in the mail. "Buy land, they're not making it anymore," isn't a mantra Manhattan developers are abiding by. And judging from asking prices for sites versus what apartments are selling for, it's easy to see why.

Sugar Hill pays $40M for East W'burg rental building

Wednesday, August 24, 2016

Sugar Hill Capital Partners bought a 51-unit rental building in East Williamsburg once owned by slain landlord Menachem Stark. The Harlem-based investment firm paid Acuity Capital Partners $39.5 million ($742 per square foot) to buy the three-story, 53,200-square-foot loft building at 315 Seigel Street, Real Estate Weekly reported. At $775,000 per unit, it's one of the highest prices paid for a rental in East Williamsburg. Rents at the building, which is one block from the Morgan L, range between $3,000 and $3,600, according to StreetEasy. Ofer Cohen and Dan Marks at TerraCRG brokered the deal, while Meridian Capital Group arranged financing provided by Signature Bank. "Loft style apartments situated in this highly sought after art district are rarely available, leading to strong demand from buyers when these assets come to market," Marks said of the off-market deal. The building was one of the first properties Stark bought in the early 2000s as he built up a portfolio of North Brooklyn real estate before his murder in 2014. A judge recently ruled that his accused killer, Kendel Felix, is mentally fit to stand trial. [REW] - Rich Bockmann

Executive of the Month: Pepe, president and lead broker of NC Pepe Corp.

Tuesday, April 22, 2014

BROOKLYN, NY Seizing the helm of a three-generation family business, which opened its doors two days after the stock market crash of 1929, Chris Pepe is the president and lead broker of NC Pepe Corp. The business is based in the borough and despite numerous opportunities to expand or move into different locations, Pepe says the "Borough of Trees" is the greenest pasture of them all. "It's a hybrid of the perfect polished stone and a bottle of wine that has appreciated with time. Even after the major financial institutions collapsed in 2008, the Brooklyn real estate market was still able to maintain its financial integrity and strength," said Pepe. Pepe believes that the borough is a fantastic place for real estate for investments because of its great return on your capital (approximately 5% average) and inventory is low and demand is high. It is also close proximity to Manhattan, has high quality public schools, and is a historical location rich in American culture.
