- GA Keen Realty Advisors generates 30 percent increase
over the stalking-horse bid -
NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
GA Keen Realty Advisors, LLC, the real estate division of Great American
Group, Inc. (OTCBB: GAMR), sold a 44,333± square-foot, multi-family
apartment building in Woodside, Queens. The seller, Strathmore Group,
LLC, debtor-in-possession, filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in September
2013. The six-story building is located at 37-06 69th St. and
includes 54 fully occupied units.
"We are extremely pleased with the outcome of the auction conducted by
GA Keen Realty Advisors," said Albert A. Ciardi, III, attorney for
Strathmore Group. "Within a month, GA Keen Realty Advisors was able to
generate a great deal of interest from qualified investors. They managed
the process flawlessly and helped the bankruptcy estate achieve the
highest and best value for the property."
In January, Strathmore Group presented a stalking horse contract to the
Bankruptcy Court for approval. Pursuant to the stalking horse contract,
the buyer, Bliss Street, LLC, was to purchase the property for $8
million. GA Keen Realty Advisors was engaged in January to market the
stalking horse contract for overbids. As of the Feb. 25 bid deadline,
their efforts generated six qualified overbids.
At a spirited auction on Wednesday, Feb. 26, conducted by Matthew
Bordwin, Co-President of GA Keen Realty Advisors, Bliss Street was
declared the winning bidder at a price of $10.45 million, thirty percent
more than its stalking horse contract price, or $2.45 million. On
Thursday, Feb. 27, the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Eastern
District of New York approved the sale. The closing is expected to occur
