Brooklyn Law School has signed a contract to sell its residence hall at 184 Joralemon Street in Brooklyn Heights for $12 million, the Wall Street Journal reported. The buyer of the 12-story, 30,000-square-foot Beaux arts building is BCN Development, which plans to convert the dorm — currently occupied by graduate students — into 24 two-bedroom condos. BCN also plans to invest $3 million to $4 million dollars to renovate the lobby and each of the apartments over the summer, using an Italian design. The residence hall is located within the boundaries of a proposed historic district currently under consideration by the city’s Landmarks Preservation Commission. Joan Wexler, president of Brooklyn Law School, had voiced opposition to the plan to include the building in the historic, saying it would lead to rent hikes for students. But the upgrades will take place after school finishes and students have moved out, said Craig Nassi, CEO of BCN. Prices on the condos — including two 2,000-square-foot penthouses with views of the East River — will start at $1 million. [WSJ]
