    Stonehenge Village at 135 West 96th Street

    Tenants of an Upper West Side mixed-income building allege the landlord is discriminating against the elderly by barring low-income residents from using the property’s on-site gym.

    The battle broke out earlier this year after Stonehenge Partners reserved the gym at Stonehenge Village at 135 West 96th Street strictly for market-rate tenants. In an update to an earlier complaint cited by DNAinfo, 74-year-old tenant association president Jean Dorsey said 66 percent of rent-regulated residents at Stonehenge Village are 65 or older, while just 5 percent of wealthier tenants fall in that demographic.

    Mark Levine and 160 West 97th Street

    City Council member Mark Levine of West Harlem is expected to soon present a new bill that would prevent landlords from discriminating against rent-stabilized tenants over access to high-end amenities in a building.

    The bill, which is being drafted, seeks to ensure that rent-stabilized tenants have equal access to rooftop terraces, children’s playrooms, gyms and other special features in a building. If signed into law, the proposal would amend the human rights code, thus increasing anti-discrimination protections for those tenants. [more]

    The cause of a woman’s fatal fall at a Stonehenge Partners-owned building on the Upper East Side was likely an aging balcony railing installed with decades-old technology, investigators told DNAinfo.

    Ad executive Jennifer Rosoff fell to her death Thursday after leaning against the railing outside her 17th-floor condominium unit at 400 East 57th Street. As Rosoff leaned against it, her date reportedly warned her not to. [more]

    From the February issue: Ofer Yardeni is the cochairman and CEO of Stonehenge Partners, a Manhattan-based real estate company that owns and manages 27 residential buildings and commercial properties in New York valued at roughly $2.2 billion. Yardeni formed the company 18 years ago with his business partner, Joel Seiden. But the company has been especially active lately. Last spring, Stonehenge partnered with SL Green Realty and retail mogul Jeff Sutton to buy a $416 million retail and residential property portfolio that includes eight prime Upper East Side properties. More recently, Stonehenge bought a residential building at 103 East 86th Street for $76 million in November. The company is also converting a former staff-housing site at St. Vincent’s Hospital into a 180-unit luxury residential building at 555 Sixth Avenue. [more]
