JLL Team Markets Contiguous Upper West Side Brownstones

JLL Capital Markets has been retained to sell 59-61 W. 70th St., two contiguous multifamily brownstones located on Manhattan’s Upper West Side and listed for $13.8 million. The JLL Capital Markets team representing the seller is led by managing directors Paul Smadbeck and Hall Oster; VPs Teddy Galligan and Conrad Martin, and associate Braedon Gait.
The two five-story, 20-foot-wide properties, designed by Charles Buek & Co., were constructed in 1890 and 1891. Both buildings are vacant and feature adjoining five-story rear extensions, a bright 40-by-37-foot connected garden area and dual penthouse additions. Each Renaissance Revival-style row house is divided into five expansive fair-market, floor-through apartments.

“The possibilities that come with an offering of this distinction include the ability to convert to a 40-foot wide residential mansion, headquarters for an institution or foundation, or maintaining the current configuration as a trophy investment,” said Smadbeck.
