A former Jehovah’s Witnesses building is poised to become Brooklyn Heights’s tallest condo, at least until the new 34-story condo rising on the site of the neighborhood’s library comes along. The 29-story building at 67 Livingston Street between Court and Clinton streets will be reimagined as 23 condos, mostly consisting of two- and three-bedrooms priced in the $2 million to $3 million range.
A representative for the project says that the developer plans to tap a notable architect and interior designer for the project, but exactly who that is remains unclear. (The developer has previously worked with interior designers like Paris Forino and the firm spearheaded by Lenny Kravitz.)
Josh Schuster’s Silverback Development acquired the building from Glory Capital for $28.6 million in January of 2017. Prior to the sale, the building was used as a dorm for the Art Institute of New York and for NYU-Poly. Glory Capital acquired the property from the Jehovah’s Witnesses in 2007.
The conversion marks Silverbacks second condo project, and their first project in Brooklyn. Schuster himself has experience in the wide world of development, with projects like 75 Kenmare and 50 Clinton already behind him. (It’s worth noting that Schuster is 33.)
Silverback has yet to file plans with the Department of Buildings.
