Pay Up $1.7 million You Owe In Back Rent Sharif El-Gamal Or Get Out, Con Ed Has Given Ground Zero Mosque An Ultimatum, I Told You About This A Year Ago.
NEW YORK POST..Con Ed and mosque developer Park51 have an unusual, uneasy alliance, sharing ownership of a site slated to be one of the most controversial projects in city history. The utility owns a former substation on the western half of the property, at 51 Park Place, and the mosque developers own a five-story building on the eastern half. The buildings were connected years ago and used to house a Burlington Coat Factory store.
Park51, which leases the substation from Con Ed, wants the two buildings so it can knock both down and build a $100 million, 15-story community center. But the plan hit a major obstacle in August when Con Ed raised the rent from $2,750 a month, a rate set in 1972, to $47,437 a month, retroactive to July 31, 2008, The Post has learned.
GROUND ZERO MOSQUE DOESN'T HAVE A PAYER; Last year, the Park 51 group applied for $5 million in 9/11-related federal aid but was rejected by the Lower Manhattan Development Corp. in September because the proposed mosque has not been approved by the IRS as a tax-exempt charity.
Posted: August 8, 2010 by pibillwarner in crime and terrorism..Sharif El-Gamal and SOHO Properties Lied They Do Not Own 49-51 Park Place, They Own 45-47 Park Place, Both Are Needed To Build 9/11 Mosque, What Else Are They Hiding.
One of the two buildings on Park Place is owned by Con Edison, even though Soho Properties told officials and the public that it owns the entire parcel. And any potential sale by Con Ed faces a review by the state Public Service Commission. “We never heard anything about Con Ed whatsoever,” said a stunned Julie Menin, the chairwoman of Community Board 1, which passed a May resolution supporting the mosque.
Rep. Peter King, who opposes the mosque, said the developers seemed to be “operating under false pretenses.” “I wonder what else they are hiding,” said King (R-LI). “If we can’t have the full truth on this, what can we believe?”
In July 2009 Sharif El-Gamal sets up SOHO PROPERTIES GENERAL PARTNER, LLC a Delaware corporation as a foreign entity in the New York State Division of Corporations and buys the old Burlington Coat Factory property at 45 Park Place for $4.8 million for cash (in July 2009), where did the cash come for the old Burlington Coat Factory property at 45 Park Place that is to be rehabed into a Mosque.
Sammy and Sharif El-Gamal of SOHO Properties have been throwing around $$$ Millions of dollars in cash buying apartments for themselves and expensive Manhattan Commercial buildings and yet there is word of a investigation that is ongoing into Sammy and Sharif El-Gamal of the SOHO Properties real estate business by the NYS Dept of Licensing in Manhattan for non-payment of apartment rental deposits to customers that were supposed to be in escrow…
