Greenpoint’s Sweater Factory Lofts on Banker St Sells


We may be seeing an end to the saga of 239 Banker Street, the well-known Greenpoint commercial building allegedly used illegally as residencies: the former Sweater Factory just sold to “JL Take Two LLC” for $9.1 million. It’s unclear whether the buyer is a developer or not. New York Shitty has tracked the building’s history as an allegedly illegal residency and the multiple forced evictions for years now. (Regardless, 239 Banker has still actively been marketed as a rental very recently.) Not long ago, tenants applied for protection under the loft law. Wonder if this will put a kink in their plans or bolster their cause? Cuberd covered this yesterday, too.
