Alex and Steven Forkosh’s Forkosh Development Group is putting its newly developed 23-story Murray Hill rental building on the market for $118 million, sources told The Real Deal.
The Forkoshes opened the 105-unit, 128,000-square-foot property at 237 East 34th Street in March.
Rents range from $3,000 for a one-bedroom to $7,000 for a three-bedroom. The property, near Second Avenue, also has a ground-floor commercial space that has not yet been leased.
The developers hired Arber Haxhaj of Ahead Quarters to market the property, known as the Theater House, as either a hold or an eventual conversion to condominiums.
If the deal were to close at $118 million, the price per square foot would come out to roughly $920 per square foot.
The firm bought the site, which previously housed a Yeshiva University lecture hall, from the school for $15.5 million in 2012. The Forkoshes initially considered constructing a dormitory on the lot, but then filed plans for rental apartments in 2014.
Elsewhere in the neighborhood, the LeFrak Organization recently closed on the $118 million purchase of the 37-story, 252-key Affinia-branded Dumont hotel at 150 East 34th Street, where it is planning a residential conversion.

Off the back of successfully settling a $48m syndicated first mortgage for a residential apartment development in Sans Souci just weeks ago, Sydney-based real estate investment manager Centennial Property Group (CPG) opened a new fund with a focus on the industrial and logistics market, Centennial Industrial and Logistics Fund II (CIL II). The fund, available only to wholesale and private high net worth investors, opened on 1 November and was seeking to raise c. $38 million. CPG closed the fund less than two weeks later, well before the official close date, due to oversubscription.
