It’s been a rough year for an even rougher 158-year-old structure located at 17 Leonard Street. Since 2013, there’s been an ongoing dispute over damage in the building that caused an evacuation ordered by the Depart­ment of Buildings. Owner Christopher Rolf has been feuding with his next-door neighbor, Steven Schnall, who is constructing a seven-story condo build­ing with a two-story penthouse next door at 15 Leonard. The dispute concerns the cause of several giant cracks that Rolf alleged appeared once Schnall started construction. Rolf claimed Schnall’s project was the reason for the damage, while Schnall insisted that the old structure was already in shambles long before he even broke ground. The drama has dragged on for over a year, but a recent sale points to the end of the saga at 17 Leonard—at least for Rolf. According to public records, Rolf has finally parted ways with the property, striking a deal with an undisclosed buyer (listed simply as “17 Leonard Properties, LLC”) for $11.165 million.
