Acadia Sells Inwood Office Building Uptown

The Real Deal reports that Fairbridge Properties bought a 53,000-square-foot office building in Inwood, records filed with the city Tuesday show.

Acadia Real Estate Trust sold the property at 4055 10th Avenue for $30.6 million. Fairbridge, a New Jersey-based investment firm, financed its acquisition with a $24.5 million loan from French financial services firm Societe Generale, according to records.

The building has sextupled in value since Acadia bought it in 2006, when it paid just $5 million.

The property at 4055 10th Avenue falls within the proposed Inwood rezoning area, which if passed by City Council would allow the new owners to build a mixed-use residential project at the site. Fairbridge is not a developer. According to its website, the firm specializes in acquiring “undervalued office” properties.

The property sits on a triangle-shaped lot along West 216th Street near the Harlem River. It’s home to a local office for SNAP, formerly known as the food stamp program.

Spokespersons for neither Acadia nor Fairbridge could be immediately reached for comment.
