Property Description

Cushman & Wakefield has been retained on an exclusive basis to arrange for the sale of a commercial building with development potential in Greenpoint, Brooklyn.

The assemblage poses a unique opportunity for a flagship retail development in a rapidly evolving commercial and cultural hotbed of North Brooklyn. The entire assemblage runs blockthrough between Franklin and Banker Streets and offers over 200 feet of combined frontage. 30-38 Franklin Street will be delivered vacant, allowing for immediate development/conversion.

The parcel is currently improved by a single-story commercial building on Lots 11 and 14, a three-story commercial building on Lot 15, which is overbuilt by approximately 2,660 SF and a single-story shed not counted toward ZFA on Lot 26. Retaining the existing 3-story building would allow a developer to maximize permitted floor area and capitalize on virtually unobstructed views of Manhattan.

30-38 Franklin Street benefits from close proximity to several means of public transport. The G train station on Greenpoint Avenue is just 7 blocks away. There are several CitiBike stations and MTA bus stops within 3 blocks of the property and the East River Ferry terminal is also in close proximity.

With over 7,000 new residential units in the pipeline, the Greenpoint waterfront developments are expected to dramatically increase foot traffic and the resulting retail rents along Franklin Street. A similar progression occurred just south of the property along Kent and Wythe Avenues where retail rents more than tripled after the Williamsburg waterfront was developed.
