Half a year after buying new digs in Bay Ridge, New York Building Congress President Carlo Scissura sold his Dyker Heights home for $1.6 million.

On Aug. 30, Scissura closed on the sale of his two-story home at 1366 72nd Street, according to records filed on Monday with the city Department of Finance. The buyers are listed as Hazel Lee and Haw Chi Wong.

In January, Scissura purchased an eight-bedroom home on 82nd Street between Third Avenue and Ridge Boulevard in Bay Ridge for $2.2 million. At the time, he told The Real Deal that the property offered a shorter commute to his daughter’s school.

He bought the Dyker Heights home in 2016 for $930,000, records show. It was built in 1930, according to StreetEasy.

Scissura, a life-long Brooklynite, became president of the Building Congress in January 2017. Before that, he served as the president of the Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce.
