Tax protection triggers $22 million deal

Reynolds Asset Management sold a new five-story building in Bound Brook, New Jersey for $22 million. The deal was struck with an unnamed buyer looking for a 1031 exchange.

Mosaic on Main includes 63 residential units and 1,600 square feet of retail space. Somerset County accommodation amenities include a fitness center. The Kislak Company brokered the sale.
