The Board of Estimates has approved a plan for the financially ailing Belvedere Hotel to be sold to a Florida investor who wants to convert the historic structure into moderately priced condominiums.The proposed sale, approved yesterday by the board, now goes before U.S. Bankruptcy Court Judge James F. Schneider, who is to weigh the deal against another favored by the current owner of the Belvedere.The second proposal would allow the hotel's chief owner, builder Victor Frenkil, to retain title of the hotel while selling control of it to the Baltimore International Culinary College.

U.S. Bankruptcy Judge James Schneider yesterday denied a request to halt sales of the Belvedere condominiums and dismissed a case brought by a local attorney who has been investigating the connections between a company that bought the Mount Vernon landmark in March and another company that backed out of an agreement to buy it.The action means Belvedere Realty Corp., a group headed by Elliott Sharaby, is free to proceed with sales of 112 residences and other office, meeting and retail space inside the 13-story building at 1 E. Chase St.Judge Schneider dismissed the case after attorney Kenneth Davies, the bankruptcy trustee representing the hotel's former owners, agreed to drop a motion to halt sales and to take no further action to interfere with sales of the property.

The court-appointed trustee for the Belvedere Hotel asked a U.S. Bankruptcy Court judge yesterday to approve the sale of the financially troubled Baltimore landmark to a Florida corporation for $5.5 million.If the Florida-based Hertz Group Inc. buys the Belvedere, the sale would net only about half of the more than $10 million the owners owe to their principal mortgagors, which includes the city of Baltimore. But the city would retain ownership of the Belvedere's restaurants, bars and food service facilities -- worth at least $3.5 million, according to John J. Hentschel Jr., the city's real estate officer.
