Management LLC
, one of the nation's largest privately held

New York alongside partner Yassky
. The companies purchased the building from Burke

The 6,316-square-foot mixed-use building on 5th Avenue, between Bergen
Street and Saint Marks Avenue, offers six apartments and a ground-level,

corridor in Park Slope, a highly coveted residential neighborhood in
Brooklyn, the building is in close proximity to the popular sports arena
and event venue Barclays Center and also Prospect Park. Residents of 55
5th Ave will have easy access to Brooklyn's largest transportation hub,
Atlantic Terminal, and surrounding retailers including Whole Foods
Market, Starbucks, SoulCycle, and Shake Shack, as well as City Point,
one of the largest shopping destinations in Brooklyn.

"At RD Management, we're continuously seeking new opportunities that
will allow us to expand and diversify our portfolio beyond traditional
retail," said Richard Birdoff, principal and president of RD Management.
"The acquisition of 55 5th Ave couldn't have presented itself at a
better time as the Brooklyn real estate market is thriving and we have a
growing presence in the borough. We're looking forward to working with
Yassky Properties to enhance both the retail and multifamily portions of
the mixed-use asset and provide eager residents of Park Slope, named the most
livable neighborhood
in New York by New York Magazine, a great place
to live."

"This acquisition will enhance Yassky Properties' growing presence in
Brooklyn, where we currently own and manage a number of multifamily and
mixed-use properties," added Charles Yassky, principal of Yassky
Properties. "We also look forward to continuing our longstanding
partnership with RD Management."
