Description

This very handsome, Beaux Arts-style, 12-story building at 171 Columbia Heights between Clark and Pierrepont Streets in Brooklyn Heights was erected in 1903 as the Standish Arms Hotel with 122 rooms. It was originally designed by Frank S. Lowe.

It was acquired in 1981 by Jehovah’s Witnesses who sold it for $50 million in 2007 to Taurus Investment Holdings, who converted it into 90 rental apartments.

In 2015, it was acquired for $60 million by DDG and Westbrook Partners who are planning to convert it into 29 condominium apartments by 2017.  It is the first conversion project for DDG, which is headed by Joseph A. McMillan Jr., and its first outside Manhattan where it recently gained fame for its elegant use of blue-gray bricks at 41 Bond Street.
