In the halcyon days before the financial world began crumbling around us, two innocent little buildings on the Upper West Side traded for $111.5 million, according to city records.
On Sept. 11, Downtown Realty Associates sold a six-story building, at 210 West 76th Street, for $36.5 million to an entity calling itself 76th and Broadway Owner LLC. The deed was uploaded to the city's Web site today.
Interestingly, the building falls near 2148 Broadway, which Rebak Realty sold on Sept. 11 to 76th and Broadway Owner LLC, in this case for $75 million. According to a recent New York Post article, Continental Ventures plans to build a 24-story, luxury development there.
A call to the developer about whether 210 West 76th Street would be used in that 2148 Broadway development was not immediately returned.
