Carter Horsley's Review of Cathedral Condominiums

Carter Horsley's Building Review
"This extremely attractive, four-story building at 555 Washington Avenue between Fulton Street and Atlantic Avenue in the Clinton Hill section of Brooklyn was erected in 1915 at the Cathedral College of the Immaculate Conception and converted in 1988 to 45 condominium apartments.

A September 22, 2010 article by Suzanne Spellen at thebrownstoner.com noted that the Neo-Gothic building was designed by Gustave Steinback and that John Gillis was the architect for the condo conversion that was made by Norman Kirscher, who paid $2.7 million for the building in 1988."
