The ‘Brooklyn Eagle’ Has Landed

July 25, 2012

The one-story 1963 homely building that housed the long-lived “Brooklyn Eagle” newspaper at 30 Henry Street is history. It was two months ago that the lot in Brooklyn Heights was boarded up and by June 8 the roof of the structure had been removed. Brownstoner reports that all that remains as of Tuesday is the building’s foundation.

And now it’s time for the site’s new life: DUMBO-based developer Fortis Manor, which purchased the property in November 2011 for $3.5 million ($500K over its asking price), received Landmarks approval in December for a five-story, six-unit condo building, with underground parking and a courtyard with waterfall. Let’s hope this project goes smoother than its neighbor up the street at 20 Henry Street.
