With the ability for the owner to build up to 4,000 square feet, the site was able to command more than $3,000 per square foot. The building spent just two months on the market.

Dr. James Li sold the building to the Dumbo-based real estate investment and development firm.

“The price and the incredibly quick sale of this well-situated asset further demonstrates that Williamsburg is a major market in New York City,” said seller representative Brendan Maddigan, a director of sales at Cushman & Wakefield, in prepared remarks, “not an emerging part of the boroughs anymore.”

It’s also the second-highest sale per buildable square foot in Brooklyn according to Mr. Maddigan. The largest, he said, was the sale on the same block at 184-186 Bedford Avenue, which sold in December for $3,230 per buildable square foot.

The mixed-use building, which went up around 1910, according to property records, is in the gentrified neighborhood of Williamsburg and a block from the Bedford Avenue stop on the L train.
