Developer and landlord David Bistricer has filed plans to turn the Bossert Hotel in Brooklyn Heights back into a 302-unit hotel, according to Department of Buildings records cited by Brownstoner. Architect Gene Kaufman, who is behind the Hotel Chelsea’s restoration, is the architect of record to convert the building, which is used as a residence for Jehovah’s Witnesses volunteers.

Bistricer is listed as the owner on the filing, but the price paid for the building, which was previously owned by the Jehovah’s Witnesses and first reported last week to be up for conversion back into a hotel, has not yet hit records. Unnamed sources to Brownstoner said the price tag could be close to $90 million.

The conversion will not affect the building facade. Plans for the interior have not yet been finalized, but Bistricer said he plans to upgrade the plumbing and electrical systems. [Brownstoner]
