Despite $31.5 million bid, Qatar’s PM denied sale of New York apartments
The co-op board of a New York building has declined to accept the Qatar prime minister’s $31.5 million bid for two apartments on Fifth Avenue, according to media reports.
The board, which refused to even interview Hamad bin Jassim Al Thani, apparently said such a high-profile resident would affect the building’s “quiet character.”
The board also expressed concerned about the his plans for extensive construction to join the two apartments into one living space, media reports stated.
The apartments, which cover about 10,000 square feet and are located on the 8th floor of the luxury co-op at 907 Fifth Avenue, belonged to late heiress Huguette Clark.
