The structure, built in 1959 and renovated in 2007, could sell for as much as $1,000 per square foot, the Downtown Brooklyn Partnership’s Tucker Reed told the publication, which would mean a selling price of around $154 million.

Earlier this week, Jared Kushner’s Kushner Companies, Aby Rosen’s RFR Realty and LIVWRK agreed to pay over $700 million for the Witnesses’ 733,000-square-foot global headquarters at 25-30 Columbia Heights in Downtown Brooklyn and a 135,000-square-foot development site at 85 Jay Street in Dumbo.

The Witnesses are leaving their longtime home in Brooklyn for a new headquarters in Warwick, NY. The group owns a few more properties that haven’t yet hit the market: 97 Columbia Heights, 119 Columbia Heights and 1 York Street, according to the Brooklyn Daily Eagle. [CO]Ariel Stulberg
