Long Island-based Developer Barry Leon will convert a doorman rental building in Clinton Hill at 475 Washington Avenue to condominiums, an offering plan filed with the New York State Attorney General’s office shows.

No unit pricing was included in the filing, but the plan calls for 60 for-sale units. Structural engineering firm Wexler Associates is the applicant of record on building permits. Leon acquired the building in 1995, paying $2.9 million, public sales records show.

In the past, the 63,350-square-foot building was overrun with rats, DNAinfo reported. The superintendent at that time recruited a team of cats to deal with the issue, which upset a number of tenants in the building who said the move constituted animal abuse.

Leon was not immediately available to comment.

At 257-259 Washington Avenue, Brookland Capital is converting the former St. Luke’s Evangelical Lutheran Church into five townhouses and 14 condo apartments.

In West Hempsted, Leon is developing 54 townhouse-style apartments at a former industrial site.
