A lis pendens was first filed against the property in 2007 for $629,100. It was renewed in 2008, 2011, 2014, and again in 2017.

Originally set to go to auction on February 16, 2018, 117 East 57th Street #26G is now scheduled for an October 31, 2018 auction.

A Comps search shows the estimated median value of the property at $969,408, determined by the median price of 44 recently been sold units.
