FORT GREENE – Sales have launched for 75 Greene Avenue, the landmarked building that once housed the office of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Brooklyn.
Located in the Fort Greene Historic District, 75 Greene will feature 22 condo units, ranging from one- to three-bedrooms, across seven stories. Since the building is landmarked, Douglaston Development is restoring the facade while transforming the interiors into luxe homes ranging in price from $845,000 up to $2.6 million, YIMBY reports.
The first four floors feature four units per level while the upper three stories house two units each, according to City Realty. Apartments will include high ceilings, exposed beams, high-end appliances in kitchens, and heated tile floors in the master bathrooms. Building amenities include a landscaped courtyard, video doorman, fitness center, and bike room.
Formerly the Chancery of the Diocese of Brooklyn, 75 Greene Avenue was built in 1929, according to the property’s website. The Roman Catholic Diocese of Brooklyn sold the property, on the corner of Clermont and Greene Avenues, in 2012 for $5.84 million, Brownstoner reported at the time, as well as an adjacent vacant lot for $1.99 million to Douglaston Development.
The project also includes four single-family townhouses located nearby at 71 Greene Ave and 370, 372 and 374 Clermont Avenue. Sales will launch for these properties later this year, according to YIMBY.
Residents are expected to begin moving into 75 Greene this spring. Visit 75greene.com to see photos.
A few blocks north at 232 Adelphi Street (between Willoughby and DeKalb Avenues), the landmarked former St. Mark’s Protestant Episcopal Church was sold in 2001 and converted into 12 modern rentals which debuted in 2015.
Other church properties in Brooklyn that are being redeveloped into residences include: the 150-year-old Church of the Redeemer at 24 4th Avenue in Boerum Hill, demolished in 2016 to make way for a new 12-story condo building; a former house of worship at 120 Java Street in Greenpoint being converted into condos; and the former home of Evangelical Crusade Christian Church at 1488 New York Avenue in East Flatbush, which broke ground over the weekend on an affordable senior housing development.
