Let's buy this building! 190 Bowery apparently back on the market

Back in September, news broke that 190 Bowery, the longtime home of photographer Jay Maisel, was in contract to RFR Holdings for an undisclosed sum.
Condos were one possibility for the 37,000-square-foot building on the corner of Bowery and Spring Street.
Now, RFR is apparently flipping the building, The Commercial Observer reports.
There are reportedly marketing materials dated yesterday making the rounds via Massey Knakal. The price is not listed. (And the previous sale has yet to be filed with the city.)
Maisel bought the 1898 Germania Bank building in 1966 for $102,000. He and his family have lived there ever since. The price tag of the building had been estimated to be in the $50-plus million.
