Jones Lang LaSalle Closes $23 Million Sale and Partial-Leaseback of Commercial Loft in TriBeCa

TriBeCa White Street, LLC purchased 60-66 White Street from BlumbergExcelsior Inc.

NEW YORK, APR. 16, 2010 — Jones Lang LaSalle announced today it has closed the sale of a commercial loft building in New York’s TriBeCa neighborhood for BlumbergExcelsior Inc.  BlumbergExcelsior will continue to leaseback a portion of the building, which was sold to TriBeCa White Street, LLC for $23 million, or $514.00 per square foot. The property is located at 60-66 White Street.
Leading the Jones Lang LaSalle team on this transaction was Managing Director Peter DeCheser and Associate Rick DeRuyter.
“This fully leased commercial loft sits in one of the most sought-after locations in all of Manhattan and presented an exceptional prospect for a savvy investor as it traded at a cap rate of 4.78 percent,” said DeCheser.  “We received numerous offers from investors both nationally and internationally, but it was TriBeCa White Street, LLC that truly captured the long-term opportunity and ran with it.”
Added Robert H. Blumberg, President of BlumbergExcelsior Inc, “I have completed many real estate deals over the years, but never has the experience been so positive.  Our family business has prospered in these very buildings for 40 of our 123 years, and we feel certain that the new owners have a similar respect and appreciation for these truly historic architectural landmarks.”
The property consists of three contiguous five-story retail and loft buildings located on the north side of White Street between Church Street and Broadway.  The 44,800-square-foot historic, cast-iron structure is zoned both commercial and residential.
