I dont like your chances?  Even thick trees can have a devestating effect on 2.4 GHz signals.  It sounds like to me that you need a second wireless access point/repeater off to the side somewhere that will have LOS (lin of sight) to both points that you wish to connect
On a lighter side, maybe a coulpe of megawatts aimed at the apartment building might one day bore a hole through it.

Hi all,

Does anyone know if it's possible, using high gain directional antennas to
get a signal through an apartment block?

I'm pretty sure it's only 2 apartments wide so it's a fairly short distance
but I assume it'd be concrete walls.

Otherwise, does anyone know of any black-hole technology that allows
microwaves to go around buildings?
