Cohen and Maxson Sell Lower Manhattan Properties for $73 Million

355-357 Broadway

Alan S. Cohen and Adam Maxson’s New York real estate firm ABS Partners has unloaded several lower Manhattan properties for $73 million. The firm had been shopping the location since last November. It had originally expected to get only $66 million for the site which the firm has owned for decades.

The two Tribeca buildings, 353 and 355-357 Broadway, are located between Leonard and Franklin streets. The family owned ABS also sold the air rights above the five story, narrow 359 Broadway, which it is keeping. That location has sentimental value for the firm as it was their first building.

Known as the Pearl Arts buildings, they are situated on top of 10, 965 square feet of space and offers its new owners 132, 780 buildable square feet. They come with a 210 foot height limitation.
