House of the Day: Religion's Printing Plant Gets Converted



Re-purposing is the buzzword for 2011, and the real-estate version of this trend is of course conversions. One of the more unique conversions to come down the pike is this one in Brooklyn Heights: a 3,500-square-foot townhome that was once a printing facility for Jehovah's Witness literature.

The four-bedroom, four-bathroom townhome, part of the One Brooklyn Bridge Park complex, is listed for $3,250,000. It has views of the harbor and is Brooklyn's largest residential conversion. The lobby is a re-creation of the original 1929 building.
