Jehovah’s Witnesses Tap Cushman & Wakefield for DUMBO Development Site

The Jehovah's Witnesses have retained Cushman & Wakefield to market three contiguous parcels with a lot area totaling 30,463 square feet in Brooklyn's DUMBO neighborhood.

DUMBO's character has made it one of Brooklyn's most popular live/work communities.

The parcels, which are located at 173 Front Street, 177 Front Street and 200 Water Street, can accommodate a new development totaling approximately 150,000 square feet.

200 Water Street includes a three-story, warehouse loft that is located in the DUMBO Historic District. Various uses for the parcels are permitted, including residential, hotel and community.

Cushman & Wakefield, led by Helen Hwang, Nat Rockett, Steve Kohn and Karen Wiedenmann are marketing the development site.

I can see how it could make some a bit sad to see the property's sell.

Look to what we have right before us--getting this old systems dirty air all cleaned up and a bright future.:sunshine:

I hate change. I loved the urban feel of Brooklyn Bethel. The way you felt like you were stepping out of the filthy crud of Brooklyn and into a spiritual oasis. I have visited often over the years, and I am very sad at this change. I know that it's Jehovah's will, but I just felt attached to the Watchtower's properties there. It was like WE owned a little corner of New York City. Every time I watch a movie or tv show that is filmed in New York, I keep my eyes peeled for the Watchtower signs in the background... and I feel a warm pride when I see them. I just saw a commercial and the Watchtower sign flashed across the screen... I paused and rewound...

Ugh, I know I'm being sentimental, but I hate change!!!!

. . . . Ugh, I know I'm being sentimental, but I hate change!!!!

You are part of an organization that anticipates the biggest 'changes' in human history ever . . Bethels and printeries all over the world are picking up more duties so of course Brookly will shrink back. Printing is now done on much smaller machines and factories are so digital now that floorspace is no longer the prime need.

Picture the GT and Armageddon . . who knows what will survive in the way of buildings etc. but NY is sure to take a pounding physically as such crowded living will be a thing of the past.

No time for sentiment now . . chin up . . . eyes forward . .and like Lots wife . .Don't look back. :ok:

I am glad to see us move out of Brooklyn. Never visited -due to the 'crud' of the area. I have friends at Brooklyn Bethyl.

Just think of this. Out of Sight Out of Mind- we won't be as visible, out in the boonies, as world anarchy increases.

Jehovah is preparing us for 'fleeing Jerusalem'.
