Eastern looks for Power buyer
A 22-unit sponsor-held package of condominium units, all currently rented at $39 psf at The Powerhouse in Long Island City, Queens, s on the market for sale through Eastern Consolidated priced at $16.75 million.
Director Gabriel Saffioti is leading the marketing effort with associate director Ari Schwartz and associate Nicole Rabinowitsch and financial analyst Gary Meese who are seeking investors for the 21,851 s/f package comprised of a mix of studios, one/two bedrooms and some that include home offices.
The 11-story, 177-unit Powerhouse was constructed in 2008 and features amenities that include a fitness center, children’s playroom, sauna, landscaped rooftop terrace and adjacent parking garage.
“Because all the units are occupied,”acquiring the package would give the new owner a steady income stream immediately, with the future flexibility of either renting at incremental levels or selling the condominiums,” said Saffioti.
“The below market rents offer an investor future upside in a submarket that has almost no vacancy today with the forecast of continued demand and growth. And the location is incomparable.”
