Top 10 Second Quarter 2023 Bronx Real Estate Deals

1051 Boston Rd., Bronx NY

The persistent shortage of New York City workforce housing was the driving factor in the top 10 second quarter Bronx real estate deals. Marquee transactions in the multifamily and development sectors dominate the list with industrial and retail assets rounding out the group after dominating prior quarters. Fully permitted deals developed up to groundbreaking changed ownership at rarified prices for Bronx dirt, while occupied apartments changed ownership at new cycle discounts. Transaction volumes are down by half or worse and values are beginning to reflect a more challenging Bronx real estate market.

The Lemle & Wolff Companies could be the savvy trader of this cycle having sold a portfolio of walk up apartments on Beck Street last September and returned to the market purchasing last quarter’s 7th ranked deal on Boston Road. They sold at $140k/unit and purchased at $68k/unit, adding 59 units and $1.7 million to their portfolio. The developers paying $30 million/acre for Bronx dirt hope they have called the cycle low. Some premium trades supported upper boundary values, but our benchmarks may come under pressure.
