Brookfield Asset Management is taking full ownership of Waterside Plaza, the four-tower mixed-use property in Kips Bay, which it has partially owned since 2018. The deal for the four-tower complex sees Brookfield buying out former New York Lt. Gov. Richard Ravitch, the original developer. The Real Deal first reported the sale, and though the price of the transaction was not made public, a source told the publication the property is worth around $600M.
The site has around 1,400 units that Ravitch built in the 1970s. Doug Harmon and Adam Spies of Cushman & Wakefield arranged the sale. In an emailed statement, a Brookfield spokesperson said that the Plaza is a "uniquely-situated complex" and that Ravitch and his team had "managed it with excellence, and we intend to do the same."
