    How was this building rated?

    On September 18, 2008, Extell Development hosted a very large party in the enormous courtyard of the Belnord apartment building to celebrate its centennial.  Extell bought the full-block apartment complex that is bounded by 86th and 87th Streets and Broadway and Amsterdam Avenue in 1994.

    The party had many black-tie musicians, many hors-d'oeuvres and two sushi bars as well as a tent that surrounded two-thirds of the wide walks around the lushly landscaped courtyard that has a very large central fountain.

    One of a handful of full-block apartment buildings in the city with major garden courtyards, the Belnord was designed by H. Hobart Weekes in the Renaissance Revival-style.

    In 2015, Ziel Feldman of HFZ Capital Group brought the building from Extell for $575 million and is converting it to a condominium with a sellout goal of $1.35 billion that was approved by the New York State Attorney General’s Office.  Mr. Feldman has been a partner with Extell and the Property Markets Group in 1994 to buy the building for $14 million.

    According to an August 15, 2017 article by E. B. Solomon at therealdeal.com, “as of April, there were 95 vacant apartments – out of 215 – primed for conversions.”  The other units will be converted as rent-stabilized tenants vacate.  The plan calls for adding a gym and central air-conditioning.

    Robert A. M. Stern is the architect overseeing the conversion.  Hollander Design is redesigning the courtyard.
