Property Description for 215-217 East 26th Street

Stephen P. Wald Real Estate Associates, Inc. has been exclusively retained to represent the sale of 215 and 217 East 26th Street, which consists of 2 contiguous, mixed-use apartment buildings. Built in 1912, the buildings have a total of 26 residential units and 4 commercial units. The rent roll is substantially below market on all free market apartments and the rent controlled tenant is in the process of being evicted due to illegal subletting. One of the four retail tenants is on a month-to-month basis, providing a significant upside for the owner. All building mechanicals in good condition and all free market apartments recently renovated. This property represents excellent upside potential.

Kips Bay | Manhattan

Quick Profile

If you take a walk through Kips Bay, which is loosely defined as the area between 23rd street and 34th street and the East River to almost Lexington, you’ll quickly learn it's a hodgepodge of sorts and not as well defined as other neighborhoods in New York City. Some New Yorkers say Kips Bay has an identity crisis because 1st, 2nd, and 3rd avenues are distinctly different from one another as you traverse them. Despite the perceived lack of neighborhood vibe there are others that appreciate its affordability and convenience.  

First Avenue is dominated by hospitals and hospital buildings such as NYU Medical Center and Bellevue Hospital to name a few. Second Avenue is a mosaic of convenience stores, fast food joints and nondescript brick buildings. Third Avenue is saturated with small bars and gastropubs and the twenty somethings that patronize them. 

No judgement against Kips Bay here. It’s a great neighborhood that is just as much a part of New York City as any other neighborhood. Kips Bay It’s bordered by Murray Hill to the North, Stuyvesant Town and Gramercy Park to the South, and Rose Hill to the West. The neighborhood is partly defined by newer high-rise apartments, brick rowhouses, and former tenement buildings.
