Inside the building he also created his office and his own living quarters. Beginning of 2015 there was talk of the building being sold for $275 million. It contains 338 units each valued at approximately $800,000. In 2016 the building was sold and construction began on the conversion of the rental apartments into luxury condos. There will be one to three bedroom condos listed between $800,000 to $3 million.
