Già da anni si vocifera dell'intenzione della WTS di vendere i numerosi immobili che possiede a Brooklyn, infatti da quando ha trasferito le stamperie in campagna a Wall Kill, dove ha i possedimenti terrieri, si è cominciato a pensare che il Corpo Direttivo voglia approfittare dell'enorme valore che i suoi immobili hanno maturato in questo secolo di storia in uno dei luoghi più costosi del nostro pianeta.

Gli ultimi movimenti della WTS fanno luce su ciò che era solo un'ipotesi, il trasferimento da Brooklyn a Wall Kill, con un'enorme introito nelle già ricche casse della società!
Tre notiziari on-line (vedi link sotto per notizia in inlgese) riportano che è stato raggiunto un accordo per la vendita del Bossert Hotel,per 100 milioni di dollari, uno dei numerosi immobili messi in vendita dalla Watch Tower lo scorso anno.

IN VENDITA ANCHE "WATCHTOWER BUILDING" IN BROOKLYN HEIGHTS.

La Watch Tower sta vendendo le proprietà a Brooklyn! I319992_brooklynH


Pare che il famoso edificio sia valutato per la vendita intorno i 120 MILIONI di dollari, dove potranno essere realizzati circa 400 500 appartamenti...






Citazione :
A giant waterfront building owned by the Jehovah’s Witnesses in Brooklyn Heights could soon go on the block - with an early estimated price tag of $120 million.

The potential sale of the nearly 1 million-square-foot building at 360 Furman St., a structure that many expect would be converted to luxury lofts, has local Realtors abuzz.

Some 400 to 500 condominium apartments could have views of Brooklyn, Manhattan, New York Harbor and the East River.

“The potential gross sellout price as condos could be half a billion dollars,” said one appraiser, who asked that his name not be used.

“Some of the top apartments will have 180-degree views, from the East River to the Verrazano Narrows [Bridge],” he said. “Those could sell for $4 million to $5 million.”

Melinda Magnett, president of the Brooklyn Corcoran Group, said a low asking price of $50 million would set off a bidding war.

” Waterfront properties are in demand,” she said, adding that a $50 million tag is “hypothetical - they might end up selling the building for a lot more.”

Realtors said that between DUMBO and Red Hook, there is nothing else quite like the structure, which eventually will be surrounded by the planned 67-acre Brooklyn Bridge Park.

Realtors compared the potential condo conversion of 360 Furman St. to the successful 126-unit conversion done at the Clock Tower at 1 Main St.

Apartments in the DUMBO building are now selling for between $500 and $625 a square foot and have appreciated as much as 40% from the original 1998 sale prices, said Domenick Neglia of Neglia Appraisals Inc. in Dyker Heights.

Witnesses shift

Built in 1928, the 12-story warehouse at 360 Furman St. sits between Atlantic Ave. and Joralemon St. The Watchtower Bible and Tract Society, also known as Jehovah’s Witnesses, purchased it 20 years ago.

The society used the building as its principal shipping facility for Bibles and publications - and has for years been plagued by community complaints of truck pollution and noise.

Last fall, the Jehovah’s Witnesses decided to shift the shipping facility to their Wallkill, N.Y., center and other facilities around the world, said Daniel Rice, a spokesman for the group.

Of selling 360 Furman St., Rice said, “We don’t need it any more.”

While the group - one of Brooklyn Heights’ largest property owners - posted a press release on its Web site announcing the potential sale, the building is not formally on the market.

For the last six years, the 4,172-square-foot house has been used as guest quarters for the Jehovah's Witnesses. It looks to be in good shape and there's a highly-coveted three-car garage as well. But still, $7,200,000? We shall see.

Vengono messi in vendita 34 edifici della Watch Tower a New York per un valore che supera il bilione di dollari, ecco l'articolo in inglese:

"Eyewitness News

NEW YORK (WABC) -- In the next few years, Brooklyn could see one of the largest turnovers in real estate, all thanks to one seller. The Jehovah's Witnesses are planning to sell all 34 of its buildings as they move their operations upstate.


The scope of the church's holdings is massive, 3.2 million square feet, more than the Empire State Building. It's being valued at more than $1 billion, and once the properties are turned over to private owners, the tax dollars will be flowing.

The Watchtower buildings in DUMBO and Brooklyn Heights have been a fixture since 1909, when the Jehovah's Witnesses began buying up properties, one by one. Church members have quietly lived and worked there for decades. But now, the church has outgrown its facilities and is planning to move upstate, leaving prime real estate up for grabs.

"It's a beautiful location," said Richard Devine, of the Watchtower Bible and Tract Society. "I very much enjoy living here. Brooklyn Heights is a wonderful place to be. And we enjoy the neighborhood. We enjoy our neighbors. New York is a vibrant city. I personally have very mixed emotions about leaving the city. I really love it here."

Part of the appeal of the buildings, aside from location, is their condition. The Jehovah's are known for their meticulous upkeep. The Leverich Towers Hotel was built in 1928, and it has been fully restored and used as apartments. The view from the roof is spectacular, and the possibilities are endless. Brooklyn Borough President Marty Markowitz knows what he would like to see.

"I, for one, hope that in the high-tech area, that the emphasis will be on alternative energy, as well as medical," he said. "Meaning scientific applications in terms of diseases. That's what I'm hoping we'll develop here."

The transition will take years to complete, with construction not yet underway for the Watchtower's new headquarters in Warwick. But once the buildings are sold, it could bring City Hall millions of dollars a year in tax revenue.

The move upstate has been under consideration for some time. Seven years ago, they moved their printing operations up to Wallkill to print Awake and Watchtower. The two monthly publications have a combined circulation of 70 million.
