Harlem-based developers Sugar Hill Capital Partners filed plans to convert the 198-unit facility to 67 rental apartments, according to The Real Deal. Amenities throughout the nine-story, 139,652-square-foot building will include a pet spa, wine vault, play room, bike storage, fitness center, and roof terrace. The architect of record for the conversion is the IBI Group.

The building’s previous owner, Haysha Deitsch, purchased the building for $40 million in 2006, and years of fighting over its fate followed. There were accusations of neglect and lawsuits from both sides of the aisle, with reports that Deitsch served rotten food to seniors and cut off their air conditioning.

Family members also claim his illegal evictions contributed to the deaths of seven residents. Though Deitsch has paid a $3.4 million settlement to settle eviction claims, he still faces various wrongful death suits. As of this May, only five seniors remained living at the facility.
