GFI Arranges Value-Add Sale in Mott Haven

GFI Realty Services closed the $5.875-million sale of 316-322 E. 149th St., a two-story retail property located in the Mott Haven section of the Bronx.  Senior managing director Matthew Sparks represented both the seller, Maria D’Onofrio, and the buyer, a local investor. 

Constructed in 1931, the 12,000-square-foot property is comprised of 6,000 square feet of ground floor retail space and 6,000 square feet of office space on the second floor.  The asset also boasts 100’ of frontage on East 149th Street in the heart of the HUB, a major commercial district in the area.  Additionally, the asset, situated on an 8,600-square-foot lot, has approximately 17,544 square feet of air rights available. 

“This acquisition, situated in one of the most dynamic and thriving commercial corridors in the Bronx, is a great value-add opportunity for the buyer,” said Sparks.
