Cushman & Wakefield Arranges Sale of Brooklyn Retail Property Following More Than Forty Years of Continuous Ownership

New York, NY – August 7, 2019 – Cushman & Wakefield announced today that the real estate services firm successfully represented ownership in the sale of 280-288 Utica Avenue, a 10,800 square foot mixed-use property in the Crown Heights neighborhood of Brooklyn. 

The final closing price was $7,325,000 equating to approximately $678 per square foot.

Cushman & Wakefield’s Daniel Abbondandolo and Dimitri Mastrogiannis, alongside DJ Johnston of B6 Real Estate Advisors, represented the seller, Jung Kwon of J & Y Utica Corp, in this transaction. The building was purchased by David Bowen and Matthew Wright.

“After four decades of the same ownership, this property has been sold as a long-term repositioning opportunity,” said Daniel Abbondandolo of Cushman & Wakefield. “The asset’s prime location on the corner of Utica Avenue and Eastern Parkway will allow retail tenants to flourish as a result of strong visibility and heavy foot and car traffic at the busy intersection.”

280-288 Utica Avenue is currently leased to a range of merchants and fast food establishments on a long-term basis. The second floor consists of hair stylists and a dental practice and the third floor is to be delivered completely vacant. The property is located steps away from the Utica Avenue Subway Station with access to the 3, 4 and 5 trains as well as numerous bus lines.
