Tenants at mega-complex Stuyvesant Town and Peter Cooper Village can try to buy the property if they want, but they shouldn’t count on the city to help them finance the deal, Mayor Michael Bloomberg said yesterday. “That’s not what we’re here to do. We want to make sure that whomever does take it over has a profitable deal,” he said. Tenants there have been said to be preparing a bid for the 110-building complex, where owners Tishman Speyer and BlackRock missed a $16 million loan payment in early January. Last week, creditors sued to force foreclosure. The Tishman Speyer-BlackRock partnership purchased the complex for $5.4 billion in 2006 after Bloomberg similarly denied tenants city aid in a bid to buy it. [NYDN]
