The 70,000 s/f property, which was originally built as a rooming house by a YMCA affiliate, was sold for $30 million, or about $526 a foot.

“The purchase of 185 Marcy Avenue provides us with an unprecedented opportunity to reposition this under-appreciated asset as an office building that will contribute to the thriving Williamsburg neighborhood,” said Elliot Neumann, the firm’s COO. “We are delighted to add this property to our portfolio of investments throughout New York City.”

Acuity has been active in adding to its New York City portfolio. Two months ago, the firm purchased a six-story Washington Heights building for $20.8 million.

William Lang of Winston Strawn represented the firm in the transaction. The seller was Marcy Square LLC.
