Yoel Werzberger and Watermark Capital Group are developing a 19-story, 230-foot residential building, and, according to CityRealty.com, it will be the neighborhood’s tallest building not along the waterfront.

Describing himself as an “avid church and factory convertor,” Werzberger picked up the site at 321 Wythe Street in lease deal with a single-story church owned by the Parish of Saints Peter and Paul Roman Catholic Church.

At the time of the deal it was reported that a clause in the lease bars activities associated with abortion, birth control, euthanasia, stem-cell research or pornography at the location even after the tower is built. That includes any “obscene” performances and the sale or distribution of pornographic material, as well as counseling on abortions, birth control or euthanasia.

Watermark will make payments to the Parish that begin at $2.1 annually, according to 6sqft.

Originally the building was only going to rise 16 stories. But a newly posted rendering reveals that the tower will be even taller. The rendering also shows that ND Architecture & Design have created a T-shaped tower “rising on columns above a low podium that will house a 92-car parking garage.” There were also be a health care facility, as well as have a landscaped deck for tenants on its roof.

The tower will be completed in 2019. [CityRealty.com | 6sqft]Christopher Cameron
