DUMBO — The Jehovah’s Witnesses have reportedly reached a deal in the sale of two of their DUMBO properties.
The religious organization will be selling its iconic Watchtower headquarters at 25-30 Columbia St. — as well as the massive vacant lot at 85 Jay St. — to Donald Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner and developers Aby Rosen and LIVWRK, according to the New York Post.
Bob Knakal of Cushman and Wakefield, who has been running the sale, did not immediately answer requests for comment.
A spokesman for the Jehovah's Witnesses did not confirm the details of the sale.
"In order to honor our confidentiality agreements, we are not at liberty to provide details on the status of the sale of 25 Columbia Heights, 85 Jay Street, and 124 Columbia Heights at this time," the spokesman said in a statement.
Kushner, who is also the publisher of the New York Observer, Rosen and LIVWRK will be buying the 733,000-square-foot headquarters and the 1.1-million-square foot lot for about $700 million, according to the Post.
The group purchased the properties — located at 175 Pearl St., 77 Sands St., 117 Adams St., 81 Prospect St. and 55 Prospect St. — for $375 million in 2013.
The Jehovah’s Witnesses announced in December that they would be selling their DUMBO properties and moving upstate to Warwick by 2017.
Contracts handed out for the properties have yet to be signed, according to the Post.
