Extell Development has officially purchased a 68,676-square-foot East Harlem retail property home to a Pathmark supermarket, The Real Deal has learned.

The building, at 142-96 East 125th Street, is under a long-term lease with Pathmark and includes approximately 300,000 square feet of residential air rights and over 450,000 total buildable square feet with inclusionary housing bonuses. Extell secured the site for $39 million.

Victor Sozio, Shimon Shkury and Michael Tortorici of Ariel Property Advisors represented the seller, the East Harlem Abyssinian Triangle Limited Partnership, and procured the buyer.

“This was a complex transaction which required a pragmatic approach from both the buyer and seller,” Sozio said in a statement. “The site has been a valuable asset to East Harlem since it was developed in the 1990s and we believe it will continue to benefit the community for many years to come.”

East Harlem Abyssinian Triangle board members were reportedly squabbling over the agreement with Extell, according to reports in the Daily News, but finally approved the deal last week.


That looks fantastic! The part of 125th east of the MNR tracks is apropos of something in Dante’s Inferno and requires more and more redevelopment. Therefore, this is a welcome addition to that fetid bit of Biblical Gehenna.

Old Pathmark is being demolished


Following for any new updates!

seems there may have been a redesign?




Very nice!

They redesigned it again. I think this time they made it worse.

So let’s you and I wait until the fourth design comes out; I think we’re both hoping for better.


At this point, I want them to build whatever they can in this area. It needs whatever development it can get. That place is the weirdest corner of Manhattan.

The Metropolitan Transportation Authority picked up another parcel for its extension of the Second Avenue subway.

The MTA acquired a site at 160 East 125th Street in Harlem from Extell Development for $82 million, Crain’s reported. The MTA paid a premium for the 1.6-acre site — at least according to its own assessment — after it appraised the property at $45.4 million.

Gary Barnett’s Extell purchased the site in 2014 for $39 million, later spending an additional $21 million to buy PathMark out of its lease. In negotiations with the MTA, Barnett put the property’s value at $114 million, according to MTA documents.

The site will serve as an entrance to the extended Second Avenue subway, one of three stations being added to the Q line. The site also has the benefit of being adjacent to the 4, 5 and 6 lines that run underneath Lexington Avenue; the MTA plans to build an underground connection between the various subways at East 125th Street."
