Novus Equities, LLC Best Historic Preservation Paterson, NJ

Category: Largest Commercial Property Sale Size: 108,000 s/f, 14 Acres Hinerfeld Commercial RE was engaged to sell a 100 year old building. In 2008, the owners were ready to put the property on the market. They engaged HCRE to market the property; by then they had demolished parts of the old plant, put a new façade and landscaped the area. The property had an entirely new look. There was a one story retail section attached to a four story build- ing with a 2008 façade but 1900 interior structure and a 1960s one story industrial warehouse of 29,000 s/f all attached as one building totaling over 108,000 s/f. Because of changes in the neighborhood, we deter- mined that the highest and best use was not manu- facturing but possibly institutional or residential. Two years ago 3 acres of the original 14 acre site was sold and now is a fully leased 122 unit apartment complex.

Category: Best Historic Preservation Novus Equities acquired a distressed, 1930s former Italian social club building in Paterson, NJ’s Sandy Hill section, to restore it as a neighborhood focal point. Reminiscent of the Italianate architectural movement, the property and its distinct features include a hand- plastered curved domed ceiling and skylights, which were completely refurbished for approx. $400,000. Novus saw beyond the boarded-up windows, years of dirt, and an indoor pigeon population to appreciate the rich history associated with the building. Today, 38- 40 Park Ave., serves the city’s growing Dominican- American population with a second-floor social club, Ranchete, as well as two ground-floor retail units.
