A Belgium-based development firm plans to convert a one-story church building in Harlem into a 13-story residential property.

Architect David Howell is set to design the 24-unit structure at 145 Central Park North, between Malcolm X and Adam Clayton Powell Jr. boulevards, according to permits filed last week. The developer paid $16.5 million, or $386 per square foot, for the church in November. Emmut Properties’ sale of the site generated a $4.1 million profit. It came with nearly 42,700 square feet of development rights.

Whether the units will be condominiums or rentals is as yet unknown, BuzzBuzzHome reported. [BuzzBuzzHome]Mark Maurer
