Tarter Krinsky & Drogin represented Cayuga Capital Management LLC, a private real estate investment firm based in New York City, in the sale of 44 Berry Street to ING Clarion Partners for $27 million on May 12, 2011. Located in the Williamsburg neighborhood of Brooklyn, 44 Berry Street is a 54,000 square foot, six-story, 42-loft unit rental apartment building that includes six retail businesses on the ground floor. Originally built in 1919 this warehouse property was successfully repositioned and converted into a mixed-use property by Cayuga. The retail spaces include two award-winning restaurants; a popular bar called The Whiskey Brooklyn; a record store; and, one of the neighborhood’s only dry cleaning establishments.
