This property was sold for $160K under its $2.99 million list price after 25 days on market, and seemingly for land value. This is a large, rectangular, 68-by-178-foot lot in Garden City, close to schools, shopping and transit. It has zoning for a 5,000-square-foot new home – so some savvy developer can likely make a tonne of cash.
