RFK’s Brian Segall and Ernie Getz represented both the partnership and the seller, John Dee Corp., in the transaction. The sale closed on Nov. 12.

Future plans for the building remained unclear.

“Cobble Hill is extremely under-retailed and brands are eager to cater to this specific market,” said Mr. Segall in prepared remarks. “The new ownership will benefit from the strong residential base and the opportunity to grow rents.”

A comment from the Jackson Group or Aurora Capital on the sale was not immediately available. ACHS Management declined to comment on the acquisition.
