Man Determined to Keep His Manhattan Apartment Blocks $70M Real Estate Deal
He likes his apartment and he won’t budge, no matter what the landlord has offered him. Nejat Ozsu is the only tenant remaining in a Manhattan apartment building, and his refusal to leave is holding up a $70 million condo project. He and his lawyer say the landlord is using “bullying tactics” to get him out of the penthouse with a large patio and views of the Manhattan skyline, for which he pays $3,350, a steal in New York City. He said he was offered $30,000 to move out, but it’s not enough.
