Conway Capital Expands Brooklyn Holdings with Greenpoint Deal 

Abe Cohen’s Conway Capital has closed on the purchase of a six-unit multifamily building in Brooklyn’s Greenpoint neighborhood for $3.026 million. 

The three-story, 4,500-square-foot building, at 60 Diamond St., was built in 1931.  It sold for a stabilized 5.61% cap rate, at $500,000 per unit.  

Urban Standard Capital (USC) delivered a $2.45-million acquisition loan to Conway to purchase the building.  

Conway Capital plans to renovate the units with cosmetic upgrades and redo the hallways and facade with new modern finishes. The Brooklyn Heights-based company owns and manages 26 properties in the Brooklyn market. 

Venture Capital Properties broker Josh Malekan represented the seller, Diano Diamond LLC. 

The financing represented Conway Capital’s sixth loan with USC. “Because of the strong relationship, we were able to close this loan two weeks from term sheet signing,” said USC’s Sam Hollander
