Bankruptcy Court Okays A&G Sale of Flushing Resi Tower
A&G Real Estate Partners said the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Eastern District of New York has approved the sale of Barclay Tower, a recently constructed, 23-unit residential building in Queens’ Flushing neighborhood.
Sunlight Barclay Tower, LLC, a newly formed entity, was the winning bidder in A&G’s bankruptcy auction, acquiring the seven-story structure for $10.15 million. Designed and built to be marketed as a condominium, but never occupied, the seven-story building is located at 144-69 Barclay Ave., between Parsons Boulevard and 147th Street.
“With the building originally completed in 2017, the new owners plan to make a significant investment into the property to bring it up to 2022 standards and launch a marketing campaign to sell the individual units,” said Jamie Cote, senior managing director, real estate sales at Melville, NY-based A&G.
