Ariel Markets Greenpoint Site with Favorable Zoning

Ariel Property Advisors has been exclusively retained to sell 173-175 McGuinness Blvd., a development site in Brooklyn’s Greenpoint neighborhood that benefits from higher-density zoning than usual for the neighborhood. The firm’s Daniel Tropp, Sean R. Kelly and Alexander McGee are representing the owner, who is asking $5.4 million.

The 50’ x 100’ site is situated in an Inclusionary Housing Zone, between Meserole Avenue and Calyer Street. Zoned R7A, the property’s 3.45 FAR allows 15,094 buildable square feet as-of-right for residential use, or 20,125 for inclusionary housing. The site will be delivered vacant.

In addition to its proximity to the G train, which will benefit from increased service and additional cars during the temporary L train shutdown beginning next April, the property is also walking distance to many popular neighborhood destinations. Among these are the Greenpoint Avenue and Manhattan Avenue retail corridors, Cafe Grumpy and McCarren Park.
