Williamsburg Church Sells, New Owner Plans Conversion


Yesterday the brokerage MNS sent out a press release saying the firm had handled the sale of Williamsburg’s St. Vincent De Paul Church, which is on North 6th between Bedford and Driggs. The building sold for $13.7 million, and while the buyer wasn’t identified (the sale hasn’t made it to public records yet), a rep for MNS told us the new owner is planning a residential conversion but there’s no time line set for the project yet. The Brooklyn Paper mentioned the sale in an article a couple weeks ago about how workers were removing historical details from the church, like stained-glass windows and a bronze bell, on behalf of the Brooklyn Diocese in advance of the property being transferred to the new owner. The church isn’t a landmark. GMAP
