A lis pendens was first filed against the property in 2012 for $715,500 by Bank of America, NA. It was renewed in 2013 and in 2016 and remains active, thus leading to the foreclosure.

A Comps search shows the estimated value of the condo at $1,060,000, determined by the sale price of 43 similar units. An 816-square foot unit was recently sold in the building for $1,030,000, while a 780-square foot unit just steps away recently sold for $2,291,063.

The 688-square-foot unit is part of the 325 Fifth Avenue luxury condominium building. The 42-story tower features street-level retail, and building services include concierge and full-time doorman service. Exclusive amenities include a pool, garage parking, a private lounge and a children’s playroom.
