A year ago, the Rincon Towers apartment building at 88 Howard was sold to a developer intent on converting the building into condos.
Three months ago (and over on the SocketSite Forums) a plugged-in reader wondered about the lack of activity at the building (either in terms of new rentals or condo sales), and another reader answered: “…Beacon [Capital] backed out of doing a condo conversion and put the building back on the market. They are now marketing it to potential buyers not as a condominium building, but as an apartment building.”
And yesterday, it’s reported that the Towers have indeed been sold (to Capital Properties) with plans to turn the building into “luxury apartments and high-end corporate furnished housing.” Don’t say you didn’t see it coming (at least if you’re plugging-in).
