New York, NY – March 19, 2018 – Cushman & Wakefield announced today that the firm has arranged the sale of 151 Eighth Avenue, a 5-story mixed-use building in Manhattan’s Chelsea neighborhood to a partnership between Stone Street Properties, LLC and Greenwich Village Capital, LLC. The final closing price was $18,350,000.
Cushman & Wakefield’s Executive Director Brock Emmetsberger, Senior Associate Billy Simons and Associate Rachel Aschendorf represented the seller in the transaction. Cushman & Wakefield brokers previously sold the building to the seller in 2004 for $7,150,000.
“With tech firm’s ever expanding presence in Chelsea, the neighborhood – and 151 Eighth Avenue in particular – are positioned to see an increased demand for residences and services,” said Cushman & Wakefield’s Brock Emmetsberger. “We expect property values in the surrounding area to remain strong.”
The 15,260-square-foot, mixed-use apartment building contains 16 residential units, two retail units and one cell tower. Of the 16 apartments, eleven are free market, four are rent stabilized and one is rent controlled. Recently, the building’s roof was redone, the parapet walls were rebuilt and the skylights were all updated. Furthermore, the property benefits from a boiler that was updated in 2006.
Situated on the west side of Eighth Avenue between West 17th and West 18th Streets, the property is in close proximity to a wide array of retail and dining options including Chelsea Market and Barneys New York. The property is easily accessible via the 1, 2, 3, A, C, E, F, M and L subway lines and multiple bus stops.
