Greenpoint Church Conversion Condos Back on the Market as Rentals


The church to condo conversion at 541 Leonard Street in Greenpoint that hit the market with three units last October has changed course and is now trying rentals, BuzzBuzz Home reported.

Each of the three-bedroom, three-bath apartments is full floor and range in size from 1,900 to 2,800 square feet. Asking rent is the same for all three units: $9,600 a month. When they were marketed as condos, the original asking prices were one at $2,300,000 and two at $2,500,000, so maybe $9,600 a month in rent per apartment shouldn’t come as too much of a shock.

The condos are close to McCarren Park and feature 20-foot ceilings, private keyed elevator access, balconies and private gardens. They also have Brazilian walnut cabinets, Nest thermostats, Thermador cooktops and Liebherr fridges.

Do you think these will prove more popular as rentals than as condos?
