The Upper East Side properties were purchased by Trevi Retail, a New York retail and residential investor. The 3rd Street property was purchased by Nader and Lisa Shalom, multifamily buyers.

Massey Knakal’s Bob Knakal, Thomas D. Gammino Jr., Guthrie Garvin and Michael DeCheser represented the seller, Stone Street Properties, in negotiations. According to Mr. Knakal, the sellers wanted to take advantage of current market conditions. There were no brokers representing the buyers.

“The multifamily sector has always been the most active in the city and today is no different,” Mr. Knakal said in prepared remarks. “The interest in these properties was from every corner of the globe and from a widespread array of buyer types.”

The buildings are expected to continue operating as rental properties.
