Moelis to build Village apartments
Eastern Consolidated has arranged the sale of 79-89 Avenue D in the East Village to Ron Moelis at L&M Development Partners for $12.5 million.
A proposed plan from L&M Development Partners calls for 79-89 Avenue D to be redeveloped as a 12-story mixed-use building that would house retail space on the ground floor and add on a residential portion that could rise up to 120 feet.
“The East Village, known for its diverse community, vibrant nightlife and artistic roots, continues to be a hot-in-demand neighborhood for both retail and residential spaces,” said Nancy Tran, Esq., an associate director with Eastern Consolidated who, along with Alan Miller, arranged the sale on behalf of both the purchaser and the seller, The Fried Family.
“The proposed development plan for 79-89 Avenue D is poised to bring much-needed residential units to the trendy neighborhood.”
