    The board at 995 Fifth Avenue filed a $5 million suit against Extell Development and Westbrook Partners, alleging breach of contract and fraud in the construction, marketing and sale of apartments at the luxury co-op building.

    The building, the former Stanhope Hotel across from the Metropolitan Museum of Art, is widely considered one of the top co-op buildings in New York. The suit, filed in Manhattan Supreme Court by 995 Fifth Avenue Owners Corp. on Jan. 9, also alleges fraud and misrepresentation on the part of architect Centra/Ruddy in the design of the property and Corcoran Group in the sale of units at the building.

    The head of a private equity firm has put his cond-op at Extell Development’s 995 Fifth Avenue, formerly the Stanhope Hotel, on the market for $13.5 million.

    Sharon Baum of the Corcoran Group has the listing. The three-bedroom, three-and-a-half bath home is one of 26 units in the building opposite the Metropolitan Museum of Art. The sellers are Robert Rosner, president of Vestar Capital Partners, and his wife Cecile, who bought the 4,357-square-foot residence for $12.5 million in 2009, according to StreetEasy.

    As luxury residential properties in New York City grow ever bigger and flashier, cantilevers are boldly following suit.

    Driven by a demand for developments that are ever “bigger and better,” as the mantra goes, increasingly audacious cantilevers are possible thanks to changes in technology such as structural steel and reinforced concrete that render a load-bearing wall, once an architectural necessity, nearly obsolete. Air rights transfers have also served them well, enabling cantilevers to stretch higher and farther as long as they adhere to density quotas and stay far enough away from neighboring roofs. [more]

    The view from One57

    Extell Development reportedly typically forbids buyers from flipping contracts before closing and from trying to sell units until a year after purchase. But it seems that the developer has loosened the restrictions at One57.

    Last week, Tao Liu of Shanghai listed a one-bedroom condominium at the building, as The Real Deal first reported. He paid $3.56 million for the unit in April 2012, but listed it for $6 million, or about $5,700 per square foot. [more]

    Extell Development has asked an appeals court to reargue a decision in favor of a tenant at the Belnord, a rent-stabilized building on the Upper West Side, which invalidated an unusual agreement between the owner and dozens of residents.

    A five-judge panel in the state Appellate Division ruled in November that the defendant, Jonathan Vincent, was protected from Extell’s bid to evict him by existing rent control laws. But the decision went a step further, tossing an agreement between the Belnord tenants’ association and the building’s previous owner in which the residents gave up some of their rights under rent-stabilization rules, including those related to succession rights, in exchange for vastly extended leases.

    Gary Barnett and 201 West 86th Street

    A New York State appeals court has thrown out an unorthodox lease agreement between Extell Development and dozens of tenants at the Belnord on the Upper West Side, finding that the landlord could not write its own rules on rent stabilization, even with the tenants’ consent.

    The unanimous five-judge ruling overturns a New York State Supreme Court decision to evict Jonathan Vincent, the grandson of an elderly Belnord tenant who had moved into a nursing home. Extell sued to evict Vincent and his grandmother, Jean Uppman, in 2011, claiming the apartment was no longer her primary residence and that he was not a “tenant of record.” [more]

    The city’s dearth of affordable housing can be directly tied to campaign finance laws that allow real estate developers to make huge campaign contributions, according to the director of the city’s oldest tenants’ union.

    “This year, after receiving tons of money from well-placed donors, the governor and members of the [New York] State Legislature quietly gave away millions of your tax dollars to developers of luxury towers,” Jaron Benjamin of the Metropolitan Council on Housing wrote in an op-ed, referring to a 421a tax abatement given to five New York City developers including Extell Development and Silverstein Properties. The dollars, Benjamin argues, could have been used to repair derelict apartment buildings or to give rent subsidies to people in need. [more]

    The Landmarks Preservation Commission has voted in favor of the Nordstrom tower cantilever, moving Extell Development’s plans for 225 West 57th Street forward.

    Voting 6-1 in favor, the LPC closed the door on a debate about whether the cantilever would be an eyesore on the Art Students League of New York building next door. The overhang, it ultimately decided, posed no negative impact and will, according to one member of the commission cited by New York YIMBY, protect the building from intrusions and help preserve the landmark in its current state.
