What is the state of the market in the Bronx?

Over the past couple of years, attention in the Bronx has started shifting away from multifamily properties and towards land and industrial real estate, with the industrial sales market seeing large gains. As more Bronx clients are requesting that marketing efforts be tailored toward specific buyers and operators, many multifamily properties containing stabilized units are now being shopped off-market, whereas past marketing strategies consisted of getting multifamily properties a high amount of exposure.

“We’re hearing investors who normally purchase rent-regulated multifamily buildings are either looking to pay a lot less for them or move into other asset types,” Jonathan told Bisnow. “We’ve probably seen the most demand for both industrial and development sites.”

Because the Bronx has the highest percentage of rent-regulated units across the boroughs, New York’s new rent regulations could be the reason demand for industrial and development sites has shot up.

Panelists agreed that, while the Bronx is still attractive for middle-class New York renters, development is currently the strongest asset type in the Bronx and, overall, the borough should remain a strong investment market.
