For that kind of dough, the buyer is to receive a blockfront property near the entrance of the Manhattan Bridge, complete with 200 square-feet of frontage and plenty of commercial space.  There is reportedly a total of 44,975 square-feet across the six buildings, including an additional 15,247 square-feet of air rights. However, because the lot is zoned as C6-1G (commercial), conversion to residential use requires a special permit.
