Investment highlights

Premier Riverdale Locations

435 West 238th Street is located at the northwest corner of West 238th Street and Waldo Avenue, one block from Van Cortlandt Park. Riverdale is the Bronx’s most desirable location which typically achieves the highest residential rents and sellouts in the borough.

Sale Leaseback Through 12/31/23

The property will be sold subject to a short-term lease through 12/31/23 with Manhattan College as the tenant and after which will be delivered vacant. This allows for an investor and/or user to have income while they prepare their potential renovation plans. 

Incredible Mark-to-Market Opportunity

Given the pending vacancy and vintage of the asset, investors have the opportunity to completely transform the property through a substantial renovation and/or condominium conversion.

Long-Term Institutional Ownership

Institutionally owned and utilized by Manhattan College for almost 55 years, the property has been well maintained throughout. 

Diverse & Expansive Unit Mix

The building’s original layout remains intact and features 95 units consisting of studios, one-bedrooms, and two-bedroom apartments. Furthermore, given the vintage of the construction, every unit has the ability to be increased in size by at least one-bedroom. 

Location & Connectivity

The property is only a 5 minute walk (4 blocks) from the 1 train subway line at 238th Street, which can provide only a 20 minute commute to Midtown Manhattan
