NAI Hanson Brokers Deal for Hackensack Development Site
NAI James E. Hanson closed the sales of 359 and 375 Main St. in Hackensack, NJ for an undisclosed sum. The firm’s Jonathan Kristofich, Michael Walters and Cameron Silverstein were retained by the seller, Westwood 20 Realty, LLC, and procured the buyer, 359 Main Street Partners, LLC.
Located at the corner of Main and Passaic Streets, the 1.06-acre, two-lot assemblage is in both the Downtown Main Street Rehabilitation Zone and a Qualified Opportunity Zone. In January 2022, the property was site plan-approved for 110 residential units.
In June 2022, the initial developer canceled the contract. NAI Hanson was able to negotiate and secure an assignment and assumption agreement allowing Westwood 20 Realty to assume the 375 Main contract. Along with the assignment and assumption, the 375 Main seller, Mekava Realty Associates, provided an additional 90-day extension to allow NAI Hanson to jointly market the properties as a site plan-approved project.
