“138 East 38th Street is a well-located, elevatored property that is positioned to take advantage of rents continuing to rebound from the pandemic and as value continues to grow in the long term,” Bob Knakal, JLL’s chairman of New York investment sales, said in a statement. “This asset provides a powerful way to participate in the future growth of the city.”

In addition to Knakal, the seller was represented by JLL’s Stephen Palmese, Clint Olsen, Jonathan Hageman and Ethan Stanton. It wasn’t immediately clear who represented the buyer.

Bi-Coastal has owned the property since September 1998, according to public records.
