Jared Kushner has purchased a $53 million portfolio of seven walk-ups in the East Village, West Village and in SoHo from Benchmark and will soon close on an eighth property, which will bring the total to $58 million.

According to Aaron Jungreis, of Rosewood Realty Group, who represented Benchmark, the deal started as the one building, off-market purchase of 54 Barrow St., brought directly to Kushner, but it “morphed.”

“They hit it off and decided to give him some more,” said Jungreis of Benchmark’s Jordan Vogel and Aaron Feldman.

The purchase of 140 units and 11 stores included 54 Barrow, 120 McDougal, 267 E. 10th, 435 E. 9th, 156 Sullivan, 311 E. 11th and 311 E. 6th St. The other building, at 99 E. 7th St., will close next month.
