Troubled rental-to-condo conversion Park Columbus, owned by bucket-swinging developer Yair Levy, was last seen on the way to a foreclosure auction about a year ago, following construction troubles and the closure of the building's sales office. We'd pretty firmly consigned it to the missing pile. Until now! The Post's Lois Weiss finally tracks down some Park Columbus intel: the 80-unit building at 101 West 87th Street?to which Levy planned to add 40,000 square feet?is being sold through bankruptcy court and should go for about $50 million. The two top bidders are Stonehenge Partners and the Fisher Brothers. Rector Square, Levy's other problem child might be catching up to you.
