The old police precinct house at 72 Poplar Street in Brooklyn Heights just sold for $7.5 million. It first hit the market last March, asking $12 million. Before that happened, the building sold for $9.6 million in 2004 at a city auction to a firm called Regal Investments. The developers planned to turn it into condos with a two-story addition, but the LPC didn’t approve their designs, and Regal put the property up for sale. The buyers this time around are the Daten Group. A rep for the new owners says they’re also planning a residential conversion but didn’t offer further details.
