Praise the Lord. A 10-acre Jesuit retreat on Staten Island that is ripe for development has hit the market for $15.95 million, Crain’s reported. Guthrie Garvin and Michael Schneider of Massey Knakal Realty Services are marketing the property for the New York Province of the Society of Jesus, a Catholic order that owns the site.

The lot, located at 239 Fingerboard Road, will be delivered vacant and is already zoned for residential development. A developer can build up to approximately 113,000 square feet on the site.

“We decided to consolidate the traditional retreat house operations into Morristown, N.J.,” Father Vincent Cooke, of the New York Province, told Crain’s. “We are hoping to get a buyer there who can use it, upkeep it as a private house, perhaps.” He added that he has already received interest from developers and the non-profit The Trust for Public Land.

“These parcels don’t come along very often,” Garvin told Crain’s. [Crain’s]Zachary Kussin
