Property Description

Cushman & Wakefield has been retained exclusively to arrange for the sale of 2301 Broadway, a 61,250 SF, 7 story pre-war elevator building located on the Northwest corner of Broadway and West 83rd Street. The property has been owned by the same family since the 1970’s and is being presented to the market for the first time in generations.

The property presently generates approximate $2.8M of gross annual revenue of which 54% is derived from the commercial component and 46% from the residential portion. The residential component is accessed via an entrance on the north side of West 83rd Street and contains 33 apartments (17 FM, 14 RS & 2 RC) plus a basement super’s unit. The apartments average approximately 1,300 SF and are currently configured as 7 one-bedrooms, 4 two-bedrooms, 4 three-bedrooms, 6 four-bedrooms and 12 five-bedroom units. The combination of spacious layouts and ample light resulting from a low rise landmarked building to the north and the building’s corner position should present purchasers with the flexibility to either expand bedroom counts or divide units into smaller footprints. The Free Market apartments have been lightly renovated in one-off fashion over the years and are currently leased for an average of approximately $53.23 PNSF which represents a discount of approximately 25-30% below prevailing market rates. The remaining regulated apartments are leased for an average of approximately $13.24 per NRSF which represents a discount of approximately 75-85% below market. The Broadway retail component consists of 4 stores which occupy the full 70’ of frontage running north from the corner of West 83rd Street. The units are currently leased to Bank of America (exp. 4/18), BlueMercury (parent company is Macy’s as of March 2015 - exp. 1/23), Kolorbar (exp. 1/27) & K.C. Signatures (exp. 11/18) for a blended average of $321 PRSF.

The building has been well maintained and managed by a 3rd party agency for over 30 years. In regards to infrastructure the building is serviced by a centrally located elevator with a wrap-around stair, heated by a #4 oil-fired boiler (3,000 gallon tank) and is individually metered for gas and electric. The basement is quite large with high ceilings and contains a superintendent’s apartment, laundry room, lower level retail space, tenant laundry and a significant amount excess space that could be re-positioned to generate additional income. The property sits in an R10 zone within the Riverside-West End Historic District (Extension 1) and possesses approximately 33,657 square feet of unused air rights. Any future use of the air rights will be subject to Landmarks & Preservation Commission Approval.

2301 Broadway offers purchasers a unique opportunity to acquire a legacy-owned elevator building featuring prime retail frontage and substantial long-term up-side potential in one of Manhattan’s most supply constrained neighborhoods.
