... may scrap plans to turn their properties into an Islamic cultural center — and instead make them condos.

Sharif El-Gamal has been in talks about turning the property at 43 Park Place into residential units — with a mosque and possible community-center element, according to brokers familiar with the developer’s plans.

El-Gamal’s lawyer, Adam Leitman Bailey, told The Post that his client is currently considering all his options.

“He has not yet determined his use of the property,” Bailey said. “But condos are a possibility.”

he condo option could make more sense, brokers said, since El-Gamal owns 43 Park Place, which he bought for $8 million in December, in addition to 45-47 Park Place and 51 Park Place, which he leases.

The 43 Park Place facility is mixed use, which means it could contain a mosque, community center and condos, city planning records show.
