Kent Swig probably cannot wait for October to end. Already this month, the Swig Equities boss has shut down sales at his Financial District condo conversion, been slapped with liens from contractors who worked on the building and, oh yeah, had his partner arrested for beating him with an ice bucket. And the hits just keep on coming! The Real Deal reports that another controversial Swig condo conversion, the massive Sheffield57 near Columbus Circle, has been hit with a combined $2.8 million in liens from four contractors. A Swig Equities spokesperson told TRD that "the outstanding liens are currently in the process of being paid and they will be removed shortly." Hmm, wonder if the marching band's check bounced?
