2207 Broadway and
390 West End Avenue
The historic Apthorp building is slated for a condominium conversion following the purchase by Africa Israel Investments of a 50 percent stake in the property. The 445,000-square-foot rental building has 163 units around a central courtyard. One hundred of the units are rent-stabilized, so the owners would probably not be able to generate sales revenue in the short term on the majority of the property without offering buyout packages to its existing tenants. Africa Israel said it plans to expand the building by exploiting unused air rights, but because the building is landmarked any expansion would have to clear the Landmarks Preservation Commission. Africa Israel plans to spend $95 million on renovations.
