When we reported the sale of the St. Vincent De Paul Church at 167 North 6th Street in Williamsburg just before Christmas, the sale hadn’t hit public records yet so neither the buyer nor the price were known. Now we know both: An outfit called The North Flats paid a combined $13,700,000 in December for the 33,00-square-foot church and 6,300-square-foot parish house. And on January 30th, the DOB approved a permit to convert the five-story side building into 10 apartments. Meanwhile, it appears that plans for converting the church itself to residential have not passed muster yet; they have the go-ahead for the interior demolition.
