Bahrain-based Investcorp has acquired two New York office buildings for $156m.
The buildings, 229 West 36th Street and 256 West 38th Street, are located in Midtown Manhattan and are fully leased to 20 long-term tenants, according to the firm. They cover a total of 267,000 square feet.
The company said they would benefit from development activity around Hudson Yards, Manhattan West, Penn Station, and Moynihan Station.
As part of the transaction it has entered into a joint venture with New York-based owner and operator Brickman, which will serve as the leasing and management agent.
Investcorp has partnered with Brickman on two previous deals.
