NEW YORK CITY-European Investment firm Cofinance Inc. has acquired a site at 227 West 61st St. in a $31.2-million deal with Maxim Properties. The 73,500-sf, four-story building is leased until 2010 to the New York City Board of Education for Beacon High School.”The buyer acquired the property at a low initial return, but will have the opportunity to construct a new luxury residential building when the Board of Education’s lease is up,” says Noonan, a principal of Newmark’s Capital Group, which represented the seller.
