Madonna has sued the people who run her luxury co-op building overlooking Central Park, complaining they won’t let her buy a neighbor’s apartment.

The Material Girl claims in court papers that the co-op’s board of directors wrongfully blocked her purchase of the seventh-floor apartment at 1 W. 64th St. on the Upper West Side.

Madonna, who already owns a large apartment in the building, is asking the court to let the sale go through and award her legal fees, according to a notice filed Wednesday in Manhattan’s state
Supreme Court.

The 49-year-old singer moved into the building after she was rejected by the board at the ritzy San Remo co-op in 1985 — presently home to U2 frontman Bono.

Midboro Management Inc., the company that manages the West 64th Street building, would not comment on the dispute, and the co-op board president did not answer a call Friday for comment.
