The multifamily division of Kassin Sabbagh Realty LLC completed the sale of 515 Ovington Avenue in the Bay Ridge neighborhood of Brooklyn.
Jeffrey Znaty, director of multifamily, represented the seller, Lang Development Corp., and the buyer, Albert Srour, a local Brooklyn developer.
The 72,000 s/f residential property was sold for $17.1 million, or approximately $240 per square foot.
“Rarely do properties in this established neighborhood trade hands,” said Znaty. “This transaction marks the first time that 515 Ovington Avenue has been sold in nearly 70 years. The investment provided Albert Srour with a unique opportunity for a long-term hold.”
