St. Mary’s Episcopal Church is planning a 16-story apartment building in Clinton Hill, according to permit application filed Friday with the city’s Department of Buildings.

The 119,300-square-foot property at 230 Classon Avenue will hold 142 apartments and about 25,200 square feet of community space to be used by the historic church, the filing shows. A three-story, 4,800-square-foot rectory currently sits on the site, which is next door to the church itself. The church owns a 99-year ground lease.

Father Gerald Keucher told The Real Deal that the church is developing the property in partnership with a developer he declined to identify.

“This is the moment in Brooklyn to capitalize and to use real estate if you have it,” Keucher said. “The area is very different from what it was 30 years ago.”

DXA Studio is the architect of record, but the project’s developer is currently unknown. As yet there have been no permits filed for the demolition for the three-story rectory.

The building will also feature a coffee bar, privy and lobby for the church, as well as parking for 93 cars. There will also be a meeting room, treasury office, priest office, function space, a terrace and a library.

A representative for DXA Studio declined to comment.
