Avison Young brokers $7.95 million sale of 29 Meserole Avenue29 Jul 2021
New York – Avison Young’s Tri-State Investment Sales Group announced today that it has arranged the sale of 29 Meserole Avenue in Greenpoint, Brooklyn for $7.95 million, which was acquired by 688 Court Street, LLC. Currently operating as a food distribution facility, the 18,320-square-foot (sf) industrial property includes approximately 1,500 sf of mezzanine-level office space, 18’ ceiling heights, three cold storage units and multiple loading docks.
Avison Young Principal and Head of Tri-State Investment Sales James Nelson, Director Brent Glodowski, Associate Directors Frederick Richter and Chris Johnson along with Senior Associate Alexandra Marolda represented the seller, Marc Jason Realty Co, INC. in the negotiations.
“This transaction represents the continued investor demand for premium industrial and logistics space in the outer boroughs and the sector’s strong performance that the pandemic has only accelerated,” said Richter. “29 Meserole Avenue presented an attractive investment opportunity to acquire a fully built-out, vacant industrial flex space with the versatility to accommodate a range of storage and logistics uses. Additionally, the property’s location offers long term appreciation from significant new developments in the sub-market.”
Located on the Williamsburg and Greenpoint border, 29 Meserole Avenue is positioned within the North Brooklyn Industry and Innovation Plan Study Area as well as in an Industrial Business Zone (IBZ), which provides incentives for industrial and manufacturing companies operating in the area. Industrial companies that chose to move into IBZs are eligible for a tax credit of $1,000 per employee up to $100,000 to help defray relocation costs and encourage industrial development in these zones throughout the city.
29 Meserole Avenue provides convenient access to the G and L trains, while bus service and ferry service are also available nearby. The Midtown Tunnel, BQE and Williamsburg Bridge are all within blocks of the property, providing vehicle access to all of Brooklyn, as well as Manhattan, Bronx, Queens and Staten Island.
