Historic Poughkeepsie Building Sells for $1.2 Million

Northeast Private Client Group Represents Buyer and Seller

WHITE PLAINS, NY, July 30, 2012 – Investment sales broker Northeast Private Client Group has announced the sale of 202-206 Main Street, a mixed-use commercial redevelopment in Poughkeepsie, New York.  Edward Jordan, JD, CCIM, the firm’s managing director, represented both the seller and the buyer in the $1,237,500 transaction, which closed on July 25.  The property comprises 12 apartments and three commercial units, including Karma Lounge and The Out Bar, two popular establishments in the revitalized downtown Poughkeepsie submarket.

“The completion of this sale is yet another positive indication of the strong demand that we’re seeing among New York investors for desirable mixed-use properties,” notes Jordan.  “This renovated, fully leased property is well positioned to contribute to and benefit from the continued redevelopment of downtown Poughkeepsie.”

The seller, a Poughkeepsie-based developer, specializes in the adaptive reuse of historic urban buildings.  202-206 Main Street was a complete rehabilitation, renovation and construction project, with a dozen new studio apartments and three fully renovated store fronts behind the original historic façade.  The buyer, an investment group based in Fishkill, NY, purchased the 202-206 Main Street property for a price that equates to $95/SF, which represents a capitalization rate of 10 percent on the current year’s net operating income.  The property buyer and seller, working in concert with Community Preservation Corporation (CPC), orchestrated the assumption of the existing mortgage.

“We were able to identify and source a well-qualified buyer through our White Plains office, which was instrumental in selling this asset at a highly competitive price,” explains Jordan.  “Our firm is keenly focused on building relationships, identifying opportunities and executing deals to help support real estate investors in the Northeast markets.”
