'Ground Zero mosque' developer sued over illegal rental
by Kathianne Boniello
The developer behind the "Ground Zero mosque" has been told to hit the road. Again.
Sharif El-Gamal, who sparked global controversy with plans for a 13-story mosque and community center less than two blocks from the site of the World Trade Center attacks, illegally rented a Tribeca gallery for months, racking up safety violations from the city and causing at least one resident to leave, the landlord alleges.
El-Gamal and his brother Adham El-Gamal are "sophisticated" real-estate players who should have known better, landlord GG1 LLC claims in a Manhattan Supreme Court lawsuit.
