Avison Young Arranges Five-Lot Sale in Long Island City

Avison Young arranged the sale of a property comprising of five continuous lots at 32-43 49th St. in Long Island City to an LLC for $22 million. The assemblage, a two-story 15,700-square-foot retail building, a 10,000-square-foot warehouse, and three parking lots cover more than 53,000 square feet. Current zoning allows for more than 69,000 buildable square feet. 
The seller, Local 807 Labor-Management Pension Fund, was represented by the New York-based team of Erik Edeen, Brent Glodowski, Fritz Richter and Kate Kabili. Will Suarez, principal, located in Avison Young’s Norwalk, CT office, was also on the team. Avison Young represented both sides of the transaction. 
“It’s no secret that Long Island City has benefited from a surge of redevelopment in recent years,” said Edeen. “Given this surge, we were confident that this property would be claimed quickly and are glad to see the continued interest in the prime Astoria submarket.”
