“My team and I are happy to announce the sale of 257 Washington Avenue in Clinton Hill,” said Dan Marks, Partner at TerraCRG. “We’re excited to see the new owner bring renewed life to this beautiful building.”
The property, located between Willoughby Avenue and Dekalb Avenue, is a former church and school in the Clinton Hill Historic District of Brooklyn.

The Hall Street building is overlooking Pratt University’s campus across the street.
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 Brooklyn.
The property is located within walking distance from Fort Greene Park, Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM) and the Barclays Center. The commute to Union Square in Manhattan is only 20 minutes with the Clinton/Washington G train stop just few blocks away and with the C stop on Lafayette Ave only a 10-minute walk.
