tifamily and mixed-use assets in New York City of 50-5,000 units, for both Value-Add and Core Plus investments. Both Gerstein and Nelson have owned and operated over 3,000 units worth $660 million in market rate, rent stabilized and regulated housing. “By gaining a thorough understanding of the overall dynamics of the New York City marketplace, including local, state and federal afford- able housing programs, we have been able to target assets primed for market reposition- ing,” said Gerstein. “We have had a tremendous amount of success with the support

of several local investors to improve the quality of life for residents and preserve afford- able housing in the New York metropolitan area. To this day, we have performed more than $60 million in capital improvements to our existing portfolio.” “Our expertise is in owning and operating a variety of mul- tifamily assets, from luxury properties to middle income to Section 8 housing with an investment strategy that also proves beneficial to the residents of the buildings we own,” said Nelson, president of Nelson Management Group and principal of Global One.

The first Global One Real Estate Fund, launched in 2008, purchased over 1,300 units of housing with a cur- rent market value of $200 million. Other Global One ventures acquired over 1,700 units of housing with a current market value of $460 million.

brokerage team of Ken Ura- nowitz , president, and G reg Pine , executive VP represented the sellers and managing di- rector Joseph Brecher and senior VP Nicholas Nicolaou procured the buyers of the Lodi and Roseland assets, respec- tively. “2016 proved to be a year in which original owner/builders and decades-long owners, who never considered selling, took advantage of extremely heated market demand for multi- family product. These industry ‘veterans’ know, from past experience, this is a cyclical business and the curtain may be coming down soon on sub 4% interest rates,” said Ura- nowitz. “Bidding on existing

for-sale properties is becoming even more competitive and ag- gressive as investors continue to seek class A and B capital improvement opportunities that offer long-term rent ap- preciation and a greater return on investment.” Known for their high visibil- ity and distinguished presence within two of the most-dense- ly populated counties in the greater New York MSA, Cedar Wright Gardens and Nob Hill are poised for value-add repo- sitioning under new ownership. Both appeal to the region’s professional and executive- level tenant base associated with their strategic location in transit-based commuter hubs near retail, dining and lifestyle

conveniences. In the Lodi sale, Gebroe- Hammer represented the sell- er, Cedar Wright Gardens LP, and identified the buyer, Cedar Wright Apartments LLC. The 642-unit garden-style apartment complex has been a fixture within the Roosevelt/ Terhune/Passaic Avenue dis- trict since the seller acquired the property in 1952. The neighborhood is now undergoing extensive redevel- opment associated with the opening of Westmont Station, a rail station that launched oper- ations in May 2016.
