Owner of Spring Street site denies sale rumors
UPDATED, 1:32 p.m., Nov. 19: The site of what was once a Soho townhouse belonging to the Beastie Boys’ Adam Horovitz was listed on StreetEasy for $38 million this weekend. But the owner of 182-186 Spring Street asserted Tuesday that he was proceeding with a development at the site and had no intention of selling.
Developer Stephane Boivin pieced the property together — paying $10.1 million for 182 Spring and $5.5 for 186 Spring – with the intention of developing a mixed-use condominium. Boivin has faced legal troubles since demolishing the Horovitz property. In May, he was slapped with a $5.6 million foreclosure suit by an investment firm, which claims that he razed the property without permission.
Dolly Lenz, Brett Forman and Adam Vanderbrook, all former Elliman brokers now with Dolly Lenz Real Estate, are listed on StreetEasy as marketing the building.
However, Boivin told The Real Deal that the property is not for sale and he had never spoken with Lenz about listing it. “Dolly has no documentation or anything,” Boivin said. “It’s not her listing.”
When TRD contacted Lenz, she said she was unavailable to talk and hung up the phone. [BuzzBuzzHome] – Christopher Cameron
