Philly multifamily complex sells for $32 million
In the Metro Philadelphia apartment submarket, where the vacancy rate remains below the Northeast average, Gebroe-Hammer Associates has arranged three multi-family sales, including the $32.1 million trade of Woodland Village, located at 401 E. Gibbsboro Rd., in Lindenwold, N.J. The brokerage team of Senior Vice President Eli Rosen and Sales Associate Eli Herskowitz exclusively represented the seller and procured the buyer in the Camden West submarket sale.
In Lindenwold, an emerging enclave for single millennials and established executives with families who favor the borough’s lower cost of living as compared to Philadelphia, Rosen and Herskowitz orchestrated the trade of Woodland Village on behalf of the seller, Odin Properties LLC, and procured the buyer, a private investor. Built in 1970, the 546-unit garden-style community features a mix of one- and two-bedroom layouts ranging from 670 SF to 829 SF.
Among the property’s amenities are newly renovated kitchens and separate dining rooms, king-size bathrooms, bay windows, on-premises tennis courts and scenic woodland views. Nearby lifestyle amenities include shopping, dining, entertainment and recreational venues as well as proximity to Lindenwold Station, the eastern terminus/main operations facility for the PATCO Speedline.
Adding to Gebroe-Hammer’s latest Greater Philadelphia transaction pace are two sales involving a total of four separate properties. Within Philadelphia proper, Rosen exclusively represented the seller and procured the buyer in the $3.1 million trade of 42 units at 6300 Magnolia St. and 6323 Carnation St., occupying two city blocks in the Germantown section of Philadelphia. He also closed the sale of two outer-suburb Delaware County properties comprised of 16 apartment-rental units located at 1214 2nd St., and 7-11 and 13-19 Upland Ave. in the two boroughs of Eddystone and Upland, respectively.

Land site in Downtown Miami bought by NY investor for $14.5 million
As Downtown Miami prepares for a wave of new development, one of the few remaining land sites in the area has traded in a $14.5 million sale to investor Yair Levy and his company Time Century Holdings. Located at 1 NE 1st Street in the heart of Downtown Miami’s Jewelry District, the Metro Mall site was listed by Mika Mattingly, Gerard Yetming and Linn Ashberg of Colliers International on behalf of seller Metro Mall Limited. The buyer was represented by Wedad Saad Anderson of New Capital Realty.
The sale marks the first purchase in South Florida for Yair Levy, a prominent New York-based investor and developer who has proactively diversified his portfolio of holdings after a contentious legal battle resulted in a ban from selling residential condominiums and co-ops in New York State. His firm has announced plans to renovate the existing 225,000 square-foot building that sits on the 33,730 square-foot corner lot into a jewelry center. With generous vertical T6-80 zoning under the Miami 21 ordinance, the site is also well-positioned for future development plans by the new buyer.
The site is positioned within a four-block radius of more than one hundred jewelry stores downtown.
The neighborhood is home to one of three jewelry districts in the United States and generated more than $850 million in sales during 2016 alone, signaling the continued upward trend of consumer spending and investment in the submarket.
