Deal for Fulton Market Assemblage Closes Amid COVID-19

@properties Commercial completed the $19-million sale of a nearly 20,000-square-foot land assemblage in the Fulton Market District to a partnership that plans to redevelop the property as a hotel. The sale involved three properties and three different owners.

Brokers Marty Casey and Matt Scales of @properties Commercial worked with the owners over the course of two years to assemble the parcels and conduct a sealed-bid process that drew more than a dozen offers. The winning bid came from North Park Ventures and MF Development.

“We were fortunate to work with three sellers who came at this opportunity from different vantage points, but who had vision and were willing to work together to create value for each other and for themselves,” said Scales.

While the winning bid was accepted over a year ago, the sale finally closed in early April, after the onset of the COVID-19 crisis.
