Back in the fall, the ownership of 128 Second Ave. changed hands for $7.5 million… The listed buyers for the building between between St. Mark's Place and East Seventh Street are LLCs... with addresses that matched up to Stellar Management ("known as a premier owner and operator of commercial real estate") and Icon Realty Management, the hotshots who have bought up several East Village properties, such as 326-328 E. Fourth St.
Since then, we've heard rumors about shoddy treatment of the remaining tenants … one resident said that the building was without heat for more than five days in October, which is "more added stress on the good people being treated unfairly and pushed out of the building one by one. What a neighborhood killer."
Most recently, residents spotted this notice from ConEd, who "has not received an application for service for the light and power account in this building."
The service will be turned off "on or after Dec. 23 unless the Landlord or his Agent contact us for service."
