IMO, there should be no problem with 150g tank, as long as the building seems like there is no 'construction' problems...to be 'safe-er', I would suggest that it be against a load bearing wall (is unit, under it, the same floorplan?)

Years ago, I worked in construction/refirb on brown stones in the city and I would be carful... Get it close to a mason wall and you should be ok.
Bigger problem is what if you get a leak? Landlord OK with you having a tank?

a 150 doesnt weight much more than a couple very full bookshelves. if you would be worried about a bookshelf then you should worry about the tank, but otherwise i wouldnt stress out that much.
