When The Watchtower Group announced that it was selling one of its marquee Brooklyn Heights properties, The Bossert Hotel at 98 Montague Street, back in January, the big question quickly became whether they’d clear the $100 million mark. Well, from what we’re hearing, they have: According to a tipster who tends to know these things, Robert A. Levine, the same developer behind One Brooklyn Bridge Park (a Brownstoner advertiser), has locked up the deal for “north of $100 million.” Given that the 224-unit building has 200,000 square feet of space that could easily fetch $1,000 a foot post-renovation, it doesn’t seem like such a crazy price to us. Reached through his publicist, Levine had “no comment” on the deal (as opposed to a denial) and the Watchtower broker did not return our phone message before posting time.
Update: We’re now hearing through another source that the price was $90 million and that RAL plans to turn it into student housing, at least in the near-to-medium term.
