One Bennett Park Site Heads for Bankruptcy Auction

Ariel Property Advisors and Keen-Summit Capital Partners have been retained to conduct a bankruptcy auction of One Bennett Park, a development site in Northern Manhattan’s Hudson Heights. The bid deadline for the one-acre-plus site of undeveloped land is September 19.

Originally intended to bring residential condominiums to the neighborhood, the project has been stalled for more than a decade. Last summer, the property was subject to a UCC foreclosure, but the foreclosure was blocked by the bankruptcy filing of developer Jackson Overlook Corp.

The September 19 bid deadline will be followed by an auction no later than October 10. William Henrich of Getzler Henrich & Associates LLC, the Bankruptcy Court-appointed chief restructuring officer, noted that the court-approved sales process “resolves a lot of the concerns previously expressed by buyers, and will pave the way towards the sale of this unique undeveloped property to an investor/developer to develop this property.”

Connect Texas Multifamily will take place August 15, 2019 in Dallas. For more information, or to register, click here.
