I get the feeling, although you didn't explicitly say, that you rented the apartment from the mgmnt company AFTER the building was converted. If you were not renting the apartment at the time the building was converted, you are NOT regulated. The LL (the mgmnt company in this case) can charge you whatever they want on a renewal.
If you were a renter at the time of conversion, it is completely different. You are likely under stabilization, and there are significant limits on what what the LL can charge on a renewal. Please clarify when you took this apartment if you need more help.
