In 2011, Joseph Moinian of the Moinian Group and Joseph Sitt of Thor Equities closed a deal to buy out Goldman Sachs for $162 million for the 24-story, 307,418-square-foot office building at the corner of East 28th Street. Drew Anderman of Meridian Capital Group brokered the deal.

Moinian and Sitt have sought capital for the building before, and in March 2012, a $140 million loan on was transferred into special servicing because of default concerns. [NYO]Dusica Sue Malesevic
