New York, NY – August 14, 2019 – Cushman & Wakefield announced today that the real estate services firm has arranged the sale of 3 East 44thStreet, a 14,175-square-foot office property in the Midtown East neighborhood of Manhattan. The final closing price was $15,300,000, equating to approximately $1,079 per square foot.
Cushman & Wakefield’s Will Conrad and Rob Shapiro represented the sellers, Bernstein Real Estate and NYC Associates LLC, in this transaction. The building was purchased by the Bill Blass Group.
“Our sale at 3 East 44th Street is another example of a user group paying a significant premium to own and operate their own real estate,” said Will Conrad of Cushman & Wakefield. “This foreign purchaser’s investment is proof that global capital is still committed to Midtown Manhattan as the epicenter of global corporations, fine dining and culture. The construction of One Vanderbilt and the Midtown East Rezoning will continue to attract investment to Midtown from local and foreign buyers alike.”
The office space at 3 East 44th Street sits between Fifth and Madison Avenues just steps from Grand Central and is within close proximity to five different subway stations, commuter rail and bus offerings.
