NEW YORK, November 17, 2020 — JLL Capital Markets announced today that it has completed, for $5.4 million, the sale of 250 West 74th Street, a 6,840-square-foot multi-housing property located in the West End-Collegiate extension Historic District on New York City’s Upper West Side.

The five-story, 20-foot-wide brownstone is currently configured with five fair-market floor-through apartments and is delivered vacant. The building has a two-bedroom, three-bath garden duplex featuring a large recreation room; three three-bedroom, three-bath units on the second, third and fourth floors, and a large four-bedroom, four-bath unit with a rooftop penthouse and significant outdoor space on the fifth floor. The building has high ceilings and abundant light and air and features a fully renovated basement multi-purpose room with a full bathroom and a walk-in closet. Each apartment has its own self-controlled gas-fired boiler. Located within the R8B zoning district, 250 West 74th Street offers 1,720 square feet of additional air rights.

The property is located in prime Upper West Side on West 74th Street between Broadway and West End Avenue. The property is steps from both Riverside and Central parks, Lincoln Center, the Museum of Natural History, and world-class shopping and dining on Broadway, Amsterdam Avenue and Columbus Avenue. The property offers convenient access to the 1, 2, 3, B and C subway lines, and several bus lines.

The JLL Capital Markets team handling the sale included Managing Directors Paul Smadbeck and Hall Oster and Associates Conrad Martin and Teddy Galligan.

“250 West 74th Street’s status as a free-market, cash-flowing property with a favorable tax status made it a highly attractive investment opportunity which ultimately attracted overseas capital,” noted Smadbeck. “Its flexibility will allow for possible future conversion to “live-plus-income” or single-family use.”
