Arthur Becker has contributed money to projects like Kevin Maloney, Michael Stern, and Robert Gladstone. However, he wants to participate in a condominium project called 465 Washington Street based in Tribeca. The project consists an eight-unit building, as well as a sellout of $52.5 million. Becker cited that he bought the condominium as a primer and because he liked that section of Tribeca, which was easier to manage.
465 Washington Street
465 Washington Street will involve seven apartments and a single penthouse duplex that ranges from 2,000 to 4,000 square feet. Further, the cost will be between $2,200 to 3,200 per square foot. Moreover, the penthouse will cost between $5 million and $14 million.
