New York University has bought the third floor at the Silk Building for $9,914,314, according to city records published yesterday. The commercial condo unit was owned by Abs Partners Real Estate LLC, who bought it for $5,350,000 in 2006. According to our records, N.Y.U was already a tenant of the 3rd floor space.
This is the third largest property bought by N.Y.U. this year, after they made news in January by buying the Forbes building for $65 million and a 190,000 square foot building at 120 East 12 Street.
Another two apartments made up the list of properties acquired by New York University (through its Law School) so far this year: an apartment at 122 Greenwich Avenue bought for $3.9 million and a second apartment at 222 Riverside Drive bought for $3.1 million.
