257 Washington Avenue is a former church and school in the Clinton Hill Historic District of Brooklyn. The block-through property is improved by an existing church building on Washington Avenue and a contiguous school building facing Hall Street. The Hall Street building is overlooking Pratt University’s campus across the street.
The proposed plans call for a condominium project with eight luxury townhouses – four in the church structure and four in the school. The project is expected to obtain Landmark commission approval on this plan in the first quarter of 2018.


Clinton Hill is centrally located between Downtown Brooklyn’s Fort Greene, Barclays Center/Atlantic Terminal and brownstone-rich Bedford Stuyvesant. Situated in close proximity to three strong retail corridors, Dekalb Avenue, Myrtle Avenue and Fulton Street, the buildings are within a short walking distance to some of the most acclaimed restaurants in Brownstone Brooklyn, including The Finch, Aida and Speedy Romeo, as well as Metta, Roman’s, Dino’sand Walter’s.
Located between Fort Greene and Bedford Stuyvesant, the neighborhood is anchored by Pratt Institute’s 25 acres and is continuously growing with new retail and residential developments to meet the demands of new residents that are attracted to the unique residential character of the neighborhood.
Pratt is recognized as one of the best art, design and architecture school colleges in the northeast and has an enrollment of almost 5,000 students from more than 60 countries and all 50 states. Five blocks to the north, The Brooklyn Navy Yard is amidst a robust revitalization with several development projects, including Wegmans Food Market, Building 77, Dock 72 and the Steiner Studios expansion.
The property is located within walking distance from the Fort Greene Park, Brooklyn Academy of Music and Barclays Center. The commute to Union Square in Manhattan is only 20 minutes with the Clinton/Washington G train stop just a few blocks away and with the C stop on Lafayette Ave only a 10 minute walk.
