In December, before Rector Square’s financial difficulties were made public, Shvo “mysteriously disappeared” from the Battery Park City condo conversion, closing his sales office at the building with a sign that said it would reopen after the holidays, according to Marc Held, a partner….. who represents a number of condo owners at Rector Square.

[Marc] Held argues, in the motion, that any decisions about construction, building sales or other issues made by the receiver, Mark Miller, or the new managing agent, Related Cos., have a direct impact on the unit owners.

Marc Held, attorney for the 46 unit owners in the building, Miller has been granted more authority than almost any residential receiver in recent memory: “As far as I know, these expanded rights have never been done in the state of New York.
