Neighboring Development Sites Find Single Buyer in East Williamsburg 

TerraCRG and Compass jointly arranged the sale of two neighboring development sites in Brooklyn’s East Williamsburg neighborhood for $5.45 million. Anthony Morena + Mortar Group bought 30 Bushwick Ave. for $2.35 million and 32 Bushwick Ave. for $3.1 million. 

When some challenges arose in marketing 30 Bushwick, an irregular-sized lot with approved plans for a five-story mixed-use elevator building, TerraCRG’s Daniel Lebor and Andrew Manasia reached out to neighboring site owners to gauge if they were willing to capitalize on the unique investment opportunity at hand.  

At the time, 32 Bushwick’s owners, represented by Paula Manna from Compass, saw the value in collectively marketing the sites to a single developer. 

“Our collaborative efforts with Compass allowed us to work 30 & 32 Bushwick Avenue in conjunction with one another,” said Manasia. “Joining forces made the project more feasible and in the end, brought added value to each property owner.”
