Property Description

Cushman & Wakefield has been exclusively retained to arrange for the sale of 105 West 55th Street—a 10-story mixed use rental building located on the north side of 55th street between Sixth and Seventh Avenues. The property features 2 passenger elevators and contains 52 residential apartments and 5 commercial units.

The residential breakdown of the property is 69% free market units and 31% rent stabilized with the unit mix being comprised of 1 studio apartment, 16 one-bedrooms, 34 two-bedrooms, and 1 three-bedroom. Nearly half of the units are greater than 1,000 square feet, thus creating an opportunity to optimize the efficiency of individual unit layouts. The building uniquely offers both short and long-term upside; on average, the free market units are achieving just $52 per square foot allowing an investor to capitalize on short term increases in rent through relatively minor upgrades within the units. The rent stabilized component of the property offers long term potential either through buyouts of existing tenants or through unit turnover over time.

The commercial component of the space consists of two retail units and 3 commercial units located within the lobby of the building. All of the tenants have been in their spaces long term, ensuring stable cash flow. The lease expirations all occur within the next couple of years and are strategically staggered so that there aren’t multiple vacancies at any given time.
