Miraval Living spa splits from UES condo

The posh Miraval Living spa and the celebrity-filled Upper East Side rental-to-condominium conversion it was supposed to call home have severed ties after a feud between the developers and the operator, according to the Post. It’s unclear whether the soon-to-be-spa was kicked out or decided to split on its own — residents at 515 East 72nd Street, site of Bravo’s “Double Exposure” reality show, received letters from both Miraval and owners Zamir Equities and C&K Properties this week telling two different stories. “Due to their continual default on a contractual agreement, we can no longer manage the spa,” Miraval wrote to residents in its parting letter to residents. In the owners’ version of the feud, however, Miraval’s “refusal to agree on a spa opening date… ultimately was a breaking point,” they wrote. The luxe Arizona-based spa was announced four years ago in what was supposed to be a draw for buyers in the 365-unit building, but has long been delayed. Sales have also been slow. Building representatives said they plan to find a new spa operator and open the facility within 90 days. [Post]
