The ~6,840 SF building has an elevator, two parking spaces, private outdoor space for each unit, washer/dryer and shared roof deck access. The building also offers additional tenant amenities including basement storage space and bike storage.
This asset offers significant long-term upside in the retail as the current tenant is paying $56/SF for a corner location where retail rents exceed $125/SF. The retail tenant’s rent will increase by 3% in May 2016. The Key Food directly across the street is slated for a large new mixed-use development in 2016, which will significantly enhance the value of this property’s retail. There is a 15-year 421A tax abatement in place until 2027 and current taxes are just ~5320 per year.
