Stonehenge teamed up with SL Green Realty Corp. to enter a 99-year ground lease for the 96-unit building, the firms announced in a press release in 2012. The joint venture invested about $13 million in the transaction. Previously, the property had been used by St. Luke’s Hospital Center to house hospital staff. Renovations included upgrades to common corridors and windows, as well as improved elevator, heating and electrical systems.
