Keller Williams Tribeca, the Tribeca location of franchise Keller Williams, run by CEO Mark Chin, announced that agent Christina Gomez represented Josh Hadar—a renowned artist and metal sculptor whose work has been shown all over the world, has appeared in GQ, Vogue, etc. and has been commissioned by hotels globally—in a commercial sale.
Hadar is relocating his art studio from Brooklyn to the Bronx. He was looking for a new studio and closed on a 3,320 square foot warehouse with basement storage built in 1955. It’s located in the Claremont section of the Bronx at 407 E. 174th Street and he bought it for $880K.
While Gomez represented Hadar in the deal, the warehouse was being sold by Clair Rose Holdings and the seller’s broker was Joe Cosentino of Morris Park Realty.
Hadar explains his business’s move to the Bronx thusly, “When originally looking at properties, I decided to focus in on the Bronx because I felt that there was far more upside in terms of investment in comparison to any of the surrounding boroughs.” He adds, “I recently moved my home from Tribeca to the UWS, and the Bronx made for a far easier commute. My plan is to hold on to this property for a while develop it into a unique, artistic space and share it with my 9-year-old twin boys. They love to build and create, so this will be the perfect place for them to expand their horizons. I’m also looking to collaborate with members of the community, and provide training in various trade disciplines, like welding and fabrication.”
Hadar’s intention is to also utilize the studio space as a center for art and technology with a focus on sustainable energy. He will use solar and wind generators for sculptures and electronics.
“I hope other creatives see the value in moving to the Bronx so that we may all collectively build a community of thoughtful artisans and engineers,” comments Hadar.
