Marmarou, a senior director at B6, said the sales demonstrate the continued demand for industrial assets that have the potential to be developed in residential projects.

“78-100 Forrest St. was an assemblage of three industrial assets that provided strong yield at closing, yet also allowed for the buyer to develop a comprehensive plan for constructing over 300 residential units at a later date in the future,” he said. “These type of land plays are extremely desirable, as the demand for apartment units remains extremely bullish in the Hudson County market.”

In total, the Marmarou team is responsible for over $55 million in land sales in the Jersey City market over the year. An additional 365-unit site is scheduled to close before the end of the year in the West Side market.
