The condo board of 45 Park Avenue has filed a lawsuit to foreclose on a unit owned by ex-NFL player Donald A. Coleman.

According to the complaint, Coleman, who was a linebacker for the New York Jets and the New Orleans Saints in the 1970s, owes $28,769 in common charges and late fees. His last payment was in June 2017. Part of that sum is the $10,000 that the condo board is seeking as reimbursement for its legal fees.

If left unpaid, the debt would grow at a rate of $2,400 per month, court documents state. The condo board also plans to charge Coleman rent for the months he stopped paying fees.

Coleman purchased the two-bedroom, three-bath apartment with his wife Jo in 2007. He took sole ownership of the home in 2011 after their divorce.

The lawsuit comes more than a year after Coleman’s advertising firm, GlobalHue, was sued by former employees. The firm, which had clients such as Walmart and Coca-Cola, stopped paying its bills, according to top executives. GlobalHue is best known for a Chrysler ad that featured Bob Dylan. One employee told the New York Post that Coleman “strung [them] along for months and months,” with promises that investors were coming in to provide funding.

SJP Properties developed the 21-story, 101-unit Park Avenue condo building. It was previously the site of the Sheraton Russell Hotel.
