Embattled Brooklyn Landmark Won't Become Condos After All

The Brooklyn Lyceum, a landmarked former bathhouse on Fourth Avenue in Park Slope, sold to a developer in a foreclosure auction last year, and all signs pointed to a condo conversion. But Greystone, the new owner, has had a change of heart. DNAinfo reports that the building will not become condos, but Greystone may still build a 12-story rental building next door. The building dates to 1910, and it was most recently used as a performing arts center run by former owner Eric Richmond, who fought hard to keep it.

Greystone had planned to turn the building into two or three "townhouse-style" condos, but it's unclear what they want to do now. Any changes will have to be approved by the Landmarks Preservation Commission.
