St. Regis retail condo fielding offers
The partnership that owns the retail condo at the St. Regis Hotel has received offers of as much as $375 million, or $15,182 per square foot, for the space, the New York Post reported. The highest offer for the 24,700-square-foot space at 2 East 55th Street came from a “super-luxury” retailer that would like to purchase and control the space outright, sources told the newspaper. The partnership has been “barraged with offers,” owner Haim Chera of Crown Acquisitions told the paper, “but the group [which includes the Feil Organization and Lloyd Goldman] doesn’t know what it wants to do yet.”
