A onetime art history and historic preservation student, Roberta Axelrod may seem like an unlikely promoter of shiny, new condos.

Axelrod, who went to Barnard and later earned a master’s degree at Columbia University’s School of Architecture and Urban Planning, said her first job out of school was working as a HUD counselor — giving advice to low- and moderate-income New Yorkers on buying, renting, obtaining mortgages, handling foreclosures and dealing with credit issues. After landing the Time Equities’ job, one of her first assignments was working on the Clinton Hill Co-op Apartments, a 1,200-unit residential complex that Time Equities converted into co-ops in 1984.

Designed by Helmut Jahn, the tower was put on-hold during the financial crisis, and its appearance has undergone several minor revisions since the initial iteration was proposed.
