Hodges Ward Elliott Arranges $36 Million Sale of Bronx Apartment Complex

NEW YORK, July 9, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — The New York office for Hodges Ward Elliott (“HWE”) arranged the $36 million sale of the 252-unit River Court and Gerard Court apartment complex located at 1065-1075 Gerard Avenue in the Concourse section of the Bronx.


A Hodges Ward Elliot team comprised of Daniel Parker, Managing Director, Paul Gillen, Managing Director, and Ariel Tambor, Vice President, represented the seller, Related Companies, in the marketing and selling of the affordable multifamily complex. Prana Investments was the buyer in the transaction.


“There is a wave of New York LIHTC buildings nearing the end of their regulatory agreements that are very attractive to our investor pool,” notes Parker. “Hodges Ward Elliott continues to generate investor interest in the Bronx and we are pleased to have completed this transaction on behalf of our client.”


The elevator building complex, which includes a mix of studio, one-bedroom and two-bedroom units, was first built in 1999 through the Low Income Housing Tax Credit program. The properties have a 421a tax exemption and are subject to rent stabilization during the tax abatement. The well-located South Bronx property is within close proximity of a number of public transit options as well as several notable attractions, including Yankee Stadium.
