Jehovah's Witnesses' Property Reborn As 7 Condos From $1.9M

New, 12 comments


Part of the Watchtower's great NYC property sell-off, 183 Columbia Heights sold for $6.6 million in April of 2012. After a makeover by buyer David Mitchell of Mitchel Holdings, it's baaaack as seven condos with three beds and 2.5 baths. In the seven-story building, called The Riverview, floors two through seven have full-floor residences of about 1,700 square feet apiece, while the first flour houses a "maisonette" with outdoor space that clocks in at 1,900. Asking prices range from $1.915 to $2.45 million, although only three units are currently on the market. Each apartment has keyed elevator entry, a washer/dryer, top-of-the-line appliances, and comes with a climate-controlled storage room in the building. Mitchell tapped Jeffrey Cole as the architect; the duo also teamed up for The Whitman, where Chelsea Clinton and Jeff Gordon bought. Now, important question: do the apartments and the stellar almost-waterfront location make up for the gag-worthy slogan "Quintessentially Brooklyn Heights"?
