- Details on North 6th Street Church Purchase, Conversion [✜]
Brownstoner has a post about the DOB applications that have been filed for the conversion of St. Vincent de Paul Church on North 6th Street. One application is to convert the rectory into 10 apartments, while the second is to convert the church itself into 33 units (neither application has been approved yet, though the demolition of the church interior is a go). Presumably there are more applications to come, as the church property includes the former school on North 7th Street and the large parking lot to the west of the rectory.
The architect for both jobs is Zambrano Architectural Design, whose local projects include 8 Hope Street. The development company, North Flats LLC, appears to be headed up by Michael Lichtenstein; the same developer who is behind the new Karl Fisher building going up at Grand and Driggs (once upon a time, a mini-tower).
