The controversial plan for a mosque and Islamic cultural center at Ground Zero may be scrapped and the property instead turned into residences.
 
Sharif El-Gamal, the developer behind the stalled project, is in talks about turning the property at 43 Park Place in lower Manhattan into condominiums, reports the New York Post.
 
El-Gamal’s lawyer, Adam Leitman Bailey, told the newspaper that his client “has not yet determined his use of the property,” adding: “But condos are a possibility.”
 
In addition to owning 43 Park Place, which El-Gamal reportedly bought for $8 million in December, he also leases 45-47 Park Place as well as 51 Park Place.
 
The 43 Park Place address is designated for mixed use, meaning it could still contain a mosque and community center as well as condos, according to the Post.
