[fusion_dropcap color=”” boxed=”yes” boxed_radius=”0″ class=”” id=””]M[/fusion_dropcap]Margaret Streicker Porres’ Newcastle Realty Services picked up a pair of Washington Heights rental properties from Neil Rubler’s Candlebrook Properties for a total of $42 million, according to property records filed with the city today. The properties at 4101 and 4113 Broadway, between 173rd and 174th streets, span a combined 126,000 square feet. Candlebrook, formerly Vantage Properties, put the properties on the market in November asking $45 million. There are 132 apartments and eight retail units in full, records show. Rubler bought the properties for $24 million in 2007. Cushman & Wakefield’s Robert Knakal and Robert Shapiro represented the seller in the deal. A representative for Candlebrook declined to comment. Candlebrook has been actively selling its assets in Upper Manhattan, including a building at 34-64 Hillside Avenue for $26 million in 2013. New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman is investigating Newcastle for allegedly forcing the rent-regulated tenants out of an Upper West Side building undergoing a condo conversion without offering them the option to buy their units.
