The Brooklyn Paper reports that the developers who purchased 910 Union Street in Park Slopeâ€”formerly home to the Cathedral School of Brooklyn, between 8th Avenue and the parkâ€”are gearing up to build a seven-story condo on the site.

The developers purchased the property three years ago for $5 million. Update: More info on the medical space via this listing (PDF), which says it will be complete by spring of next year.
