Ridge Street

Cushman & Wakefield h as b een r etained o n a n e xclusive b asis t o arrange for the sale of 118 Ridge Street, an entirely free market, 5-story walk-up apartment building in the Lower East Side. Situated on the east side of Ridge Street between Rivington Street and Stanton Street, the 10,094 gross square foot property contains 10 free-market residential units, currently comprising of eight 2-bedroom apartments and two 3-bedroom apartments. 118 Ridge Street currently generates an effective gross revenue of over $525,672 with a net operating income of approximately $443,316. The property benefits from its classification within one of the most favorable tax classes in New York City, Tax Class 2B, limiting the increase in real estate tax liability to a maximum of 8% annually and only 30% over a 5-year period. These savings will continue to positively impact the buildings bottom line as the real estate taxes only equate to approximately $3.38 per square foot with limited future increases. Comprised of entirely free-market units, the property is not subject to rent regulation, and thus free of any restrictions under this designation. Although all of the apartments have been renovated in the past 10 years, many of the existing finishes are outdated and as a result, a number of the units are well below market. Currently, the blended average rent of the entire building is approximately $60/psf in a market that can command north of $80/psf as evidenced within the building as well as the surrounding neighborhood. With a minor renovation program in the near future due to short term lease expirations, all of the units could potentially be brought up to these market levels. The garden apartment features a private courtyard and both top floor apartments contain access to a private rooftop, offering stunning views of Downtown Manhattan and beyond.
