Ariel Markets Parcels in Prospect Lefferts Gardens

Ariel Property Advisors has been retained for a pair of assignments on development sites in Brooklyn’s Prospect Lefferts Gardens neighborhood. An Ariel team of Jonathan Berman, Daniel Tropp and Matthew Lev is representing ownership in marketing the ground lease on a large development site (pictured) at 482-504 Utica Ave.

Ownership is requesting proposals on the 482-504 Utica site, which offers 96,000 buildable square feet for use as a community facility.

Berman, Tropp and Alexander McGee are also marketing a vacant development site at 538-540 Empire Blvd., which offers 14,157 square feet and comes with an opportunity to purchase additional air rights. The asking price is $2.6 million.

“Prospect Lefferts Gardens is experiencing stable rent growth and as a result, development opportunities continue to generate strong returns,” Berman said.

Both sites are convenient to nearby retail corridors and to mass transit options.
