Brooklyn Eagle's HQ in Brooklyn Heights Sold to Developers

The Brooklyn Eagle newspaper reports on a breaking real estate story: the sale of their own headquarters to a developer who wants to knock it down and put up a new a six-story, 65-foot-tall residential building on the site, at 30 Henry St., corner of Middagh Street in the North Heights -- across the street from the Peaks Mason Mints Candy Factory buildings.

The new owners and their architect have yet to obtain the necessary approvals to do this from the Landmarks Preservation Commission. 

According to the Eagle’s publisher, Dozier Hasty, the building was sold to the Fortis Group, which has notified him that the newspaper must vacate the building by the end of January. Read the full details at the Eagle.
