Take 3: Ben Shaoul launches sales at rebranded LES condo

Developer Ben Shaoul has a new name for the East Village nursing home turned raucous rental building that’s now on its third life as a punk-inspired condominium.
Shaoul’s Magnum Real Estate Group is calling the project Liberty Toye, and the firm put 14 units on the market today with brokerage Town Residential. Availabilities include a mix of studios, and one- and two-bedroom units with a blended average price of $1,600 per square foot.
The building, located at 62 Avenue B, has garnered its share of headlines over the past few years. Magnum bought the property for $25.5 million from Cabrini Center for Nursing and Rehabilitation in 2011 and converted it to rentals in 2013.
But residents of the building — then called Bloom 62 — partied a little too hard on the rooftop, leaving beer bottles, graffiti and broken furniture after a particularly rowdy night. Magnum shut the rooftop indefinitely to stop the “excessive” partying it said had “left the amenity space looted.”

In early 2015, Shaoul looked to sell the property for $80 million, but ultimately decided to convert it to condos.
The latest iteration of the building includes 81 condos with stained hardwo[……]

In 2008, the New York Observer crowned Leighton Candler as the city s “new co-op queen,” after she racked up a series of eight-figure deals on the Upper East Side’s Gold Coast. But the Corcoran Group agent is now in line for an even grander title after selling the city s priciest condominium for $100.5 million.
The buyer, Dell Technologies founder Michael Dell, inked a contract for the Billionaires Row condominium back in 2012 and the sale closed two years later. Dell’s identity — and Candler’s role — was revealed on Thursday by the Wall Street Journal.
Although she s flown under the radar these past few years, Candler’s record-setting One57 deal puts her in an exclusive club. She joins other record-setting brokers like Corcoran s Carrie Chiang, who represented David Wildenstein in the $79.5 million sale of the Upper East Side commercial townhouse last year; Sotheby s International s Serena Boardman, who brought a $77.5 million buyer in 2015 to Woody Johnson s co-op apartment, where she had a co-exclusive with Brown Harris Stevens John Burger; Brown Harris Stevens Paula Del Nunzio, who listed the Harkness mansion when it sold in 2006 for $53 million; a[……]

A TitleVest senior executive who alleges she was fired after reporting a pervasive bro culture at the title firm, is suing the insurer and its parent, First American Corp., alleging there was an egregious strategy in place to remove female executives and replace them with less qualified males.
In a Feb. 2 lawsuit filed in Manhattan Supreme Court, Jacqueline Gold, 53, a former senior vice president of operations at TitleVest, said she was ostracized, stripped of responsibilities and later terminated after complaining to HR about widespread misconduct by her superiors, including TitleVest president Brian Tormey. According to Gold s suit, Tormey perpetuated a boys club culture and favored young and conventionally-attractive women dubbed Brian s Angels.
The explosive lawsuit is just the latest declaration in which women in the real estate industry say they ve been systematically marginalized and discriminated against in favor of male colleagues. The suit also shines a harsh light on the title industry — which has a reputation for hard partying and over-the-top entertainment. New regulations by New York s Dep[……]
