Bonjour Capital is a privately held real estate investment and development company. Founded in 1972 by Syrian brothers Charles, Eli, and Avid Dayan, Bonjour began as a clothing importer. A decade later, Charles left the parent firm to found its real estate arm, Bonjour Capital. Bonjour has partnered with the Chetrits in purchasing 620 5th Avenue (which the two firms then sold in 2011 for half a billion dollars), as well as office space on Nassau Street. However, the partnership would sour in later years. In 2012 Bonjour sold 5 Beekman Street for $64 million, having lost to Joseph Chetrit in court allegedly over Bonjours failure to pay off a defaulted construction loan. The following year the firm closed on a industrial-to-rental conversion in Bedford-Stuyvesant that had stalled for years. In 2016 Bonjour sold its stake in the Crescent Club apartment building in Long Island City, which it had purchased in 2013, for nearly $100 million.
