Witness a 7-story residential conversion on Avenue C
The 3,050-square-foot, two-story Kingdom Hall owned by the Jehovah's Witnesses at 67 Avenue C will soon yield a 7-story, 7-unit residential building, BuzzBuzzHome first reported on Friday.
Permits filed Wednesday at the DOB show plans for 1,843 square feet of commercial space and 7,451 square feet of residential space. As BuzzBuzz pointed out, the building just south of East Fifth Street will get five new levels, including "a penthouse vertical extension. The residences will be full-floor and half-floor, with a duplex penthouse on top." (As we understand it, the Jehovah's Witnesses will continue to use the adjacent space at 63 and 65 Avenue C.)
Developer Natan Vinbaytel is listed as the developer. (He's also currently putting up the new 6-floor building at 227 E. Seventh St.) The architect is Vikatos Architect PC.
We wrote about a potential sale back in August 2009 during a guest stint at Curbed. At the time the asking price was $2.2 million.
The space hit the market again in May 2012.
