From a business article on condo conversions. This is the lobby of a former telecommunications building in TriBeCa that is now super upscale condos. As a resident of a two condo conversions (first a historic bank building, then a former luxury office building), I approve, though maybe not of $2 million condos. -Wendy
From the article:

A decade ago, developers nationwide were busy snatching up apartment buildings and converting the units to condominiums to cash in on rapidly rising home prices supported by low interest rates and lax mortgage underwriting standards.The strategy still stands as a testament to the fervent homeownership boom, which ended abruptly — and messily — amid the financial crisis, the bursting of the housing price bubble and the collapse of the condo mortgage industry. The fallout largely led to foreclosures and bankruptcies, as developers were unable to unload the units.But now, with demand for residential ownership ratcheting up in major markets where the emphasis for years has been on apartment development, condo conversions are making a comeback.
