It would appear that the residential conversion of the former St. Cyril’s and Methodius School has hit a snag in the way of a Stop Work Order.

Given work has been conducted on this site for some time, I find the reason stated (as seen above) rather odd. Is it just me or is the Department of Buildings being a mite more “vigilant” ¬†(if selectively so)¬†hereabouts than usual?

It would appear the conversion of this former school into residential space has begun.

From The Greenpoint Grapevine: St. Cyril’s & Methodius To Become Housing?

Although I have researched this and come up empty I have heard buzz about this from Dupont Street residents for over a month. The rumors run (more or less) as follows:

  1. A 99 year lease has been signed for this property and it will be converted into apartments.
  2. This building will be converted into condominiums.

While hardly happy at the prospect of having (yet) more condominiums in the Garden Spot I have to confess that the prospect of this long-empty (and rather nifty) building get some much overdue T.L.C. is pleasing. Does anyone have the 411 regarding what is happening? If so, please share via comments or email at missheather (at) thatgreenpointblog (dot) com. Your identity will remain anonymous if you so desire. Thanks!
