Allen Rosenberg, 120 East 32nd Street, Indigo Condominium at 125 West 21st Street, 289 10th Avenue and Allegria Hotel & Spa in Long Beach
The flip side of the story of real estate investors who have taken advantage of the downturn and snapped up discounted properties is the city’s owners who are losing them one by one.
One such mid-sized landlord who built up a modest portfolio in Manhattan and Long Island and is now losing them is Allen Rosenberg. In 1990, he founded the Alrose Group, with offices in Midtown and Woodmere, L.I. His website shows over the years he acquired 23 properties in New York City, Long Island, New Jersey and Maryland.
Now, he is under pressure from lenders who are selling the notes on three of his Manhattan retail properties with a face value of $11.5 million, as well as the $2.7 million loan on a 35,000-square-foot shopping center in Commack, L.I. In addition, $30 million in loans on the luxury Allegria Hotel & Spa in Long Beach, L.I. is being sold, according to sources. Alrose did not respond to requests for comment. … [more]
Long Beach has scored its first luxury hotel, the Allegria at the Boardwalk and National Boulevard, thanks to developer Allen Rosenberg’s faith in the power of a quick getaway. “I think people are so tired of driving to the Hamptons,” said Rosenberg, who is president of Alrose Group in Manhattan. “In Long Beach, there are plenty of restaurants. It’s a year-round community. It’s the un-Hamptons.” Roughly 85 of Allegria’s 143 rooms have already opened, with prices per night ranging from $199 for a view of the atrium to $1,000 for an ocean view. The remaining rooms are slated for occupancy by the end of the year, and a rooftop pool and spa will open in the spring.
