    The lack of full names should be indicative of shady operation.

    Also, if I remember correctly, “mezzanine” does not really exist at 150 East 42nd Street. Companies use that address to give the illusion that there’s a physical presence there while it’s really a drop site for mail.

    you have been forewarned…..

    looks like there was someone worst than the old landlord, Joe Bruman.

    It’s unbelievable that such religious people screw others….but it looks like they are only generous within their own community and try to scam outsiders.

    KARMA…..

    Met the new manager and he was not a nice guy. At all. Highly concerned and strongly considering moving.

      I met building manager, i think his name is Andrian.
      Very nice and quiet guy.

        To the last commenter, I didn’t mean Adrian. I meant Harry Hastings, the person who is listed as property manager on the paperwork we received that notified us about the change of building ownership.

        When I encountered Mr. Hastings, it was because he was being beyond rude to the nanny of a tenant and his behavior was uncalled for. I happened to be walking by when this happened. Another passer by politely said to him that the nanny was a nice lady and he was being rude, and his response was to be even ruder. It was seriously not ok. That said, I do want to add that the rest of the new building staff seems to be great so far and is, so far, a cut above the old staff.

        The new management is not honoring the old rental agreements in regards to parking and storage in the garage. They are bullying residents not giving the new key to the garage, unless tenants move their property out of the garage regardless of the fact that the items have been there over 2 years. They are claiming the items are a fire hazard and yet they have about 20 feed of garbage sitting at the entrance to the garage, behind the laundry room… fire hazard, huh?!

    It appears as if the new owners are trying to make this a real luxury building. They’re doing ceiling repairs to the leaks in the atrium and installing a new security system.

    As expected, they’re raising the rents ~ 15+% so I hope that get rids of the recent 20-something college grads who can’t really afford to live here and have to pile 3-4 into a 2 bedroom apt.

    They’re trying to disassociate from the old Viridian name because of the bad reviews….smart move.

    The new Concierges wear uniforms which makes them look more professional than the former Polish staff who wore casual clothes (jeans, sneakers,…etc. Patty dressed like a hooker sometimes) but some leave the desk unattended with the door unlocked.

    Maintenance staff are here 7 days/week and there are more of them to keep the place clean.

    I liked the old staff and didn’t have much problem with them, but the new staff is much better – more professional overall. I see they’re trying to make actual improvements instead of applying band-aids and I definitely can get with that. I agree with the commenter above, the new system of putting packages in the hall closet means the front desk is unattended much more often, which isn’t good – maybe we should let the management know it isn’t work out well. The area looks less cluttered but the point is having someone there; I’ll take the boxes if it means having a presence.

    Does anyone of you payed the last month rent. If you have, have they respected the agreement. It seems, from my chat with the building manager that they won’t…

    Which part of the agreement are they not honoring?

    The plywood boards fell off the ‘windows’ in the front of the garage a few months back. (To the right of the garage doors as you exit) Seems they were there to hide the fact there THERE ARE NO supporting lintels at the top of the openings.(i.e. No beams across the top of the window supporting the portion of the wall above.) The cinder blocks are simply stuck there via mortar. This is a serious code violation and AMAZINGLY dangerous situation for both tenants and pedestrians on the sidewalk. When I brought it to the attention of the management they simply put the plywood back up to mask it again. This is a potential point of structural weakness. We’ve since moved out, (for many other reasons), and contacted the DOB, but thinking back, felt residents should be made aware of this, especially if you live in the units directly above. (BTW.. Not sure if this fourm is still active… is anyone still moderating this?)

    I HAVE TO SAY THAT THE NEW MANAGEMENT IS HORRIBLE. THERE WAS A MAJOR FLOOD IN BUILDING A MONTHS AGO AND NOTHING WAS DONE TO CLEAN IT UP. THE STAIRWELLS WERE COMPLETELY FLOODED AND NO ONE DID A THING. WHEN IT RAINS, WATER FLOWS OUT OF THE WALLS IN STAIRWELL B. THE AIR CONDITIONING HAS NOT BEEN WORKING FOR DAYS AND NOW THE HOT WATER IS NOT WORKING. THE ROOF IS OFF LIMITS FOR SUPPOSED REPAIRS AND THE INDOOR GARDEN WALLS ARE HANGING FROM THE CEILING. I HONESTLY DID NOT THINK IT COULD GET WORSE, BUT THE NEW MANAGEMENT HAS PROVEN ME WRONG! MOVING AS SOON AS MY LEASE IS UP.

      Lacey,

      We empathize with your frustrations and know that leaks have been a problem since new ownership took over 110 Green Street. When we came to the building a few months ago, we immediately began researching the problems that needed to be addressed and have lined up a contractor to fix the issues we’ve inherited. Ownership also hired a designer to upgrade the common areas and amenity spaces, including the roof, which will be re-opening as a furnished terrace. All of this is an ongoing process that we aim to complete as quickly and thoroughly as possible; we very much appreciate everyone’s patience thus far and anticipate repairs and renovations to be finished by the end of June.

      We’re also working directly with ownership to make sure we’re doing everything we can for your requests. We’ll be in touch with you again soon by phone.

    I think the new management has been doing a lot compared to the former Landlord, Joe Bruman. I don’t know this for a fact but my take, is that when the decision to go from luxury condo to luxury rental (because of the financial crisis) many shortcuts were made so quality was sacrificed. Just look at the cheap Summit refrigerators and washer/dryer combos. The new Landlord is inheriting unforeseen problems that may not have easy or quick solutions.

    Having said that, I’m glad I moved out months ago to the suburbs where it’s cooler in the evening and not have to worry about a non-working air conditioner or hot water. Down side is that I would have to pay for a new central AC unit and duct work which is costing $16.5K, new steel garage door cost me $2,300, new roof and gutters cost me $10.5K. Gagganeau fridge – $9K, Bosch dishwasher – $1.3K, Bluestar range – $5K, Miele washer – $2K. The list goes on and on.

    Ergo, don’t complain too too much unless you’ve walked in the other person’s shoes or have all the facts. When you own a home or become a landlord, you’ll understand how expensive repairs or new appliances will cost…..

    For past and present tenants who are experiencing or have experienced problems with the building, Management Office…etc, contact the Landlord, Jeffrey Kaplan/Meadow Partners, LLC. If enough people contact him and complain, maybe their will be changes. They hired a PR firm but the problems persist. Mr. Kaplan might not want bad publicity about his building’s problems, Management ineptness, electricity gouging, uncollectible security deposits…etc as it may deter possible tenants.
