The Brooklyn Eagle reports that the conversion of 166 Montague Street to condos is complete:

Brooklyn Eagle: RKT&B Architects announces the completion of the adaptive reuse/restoration of 166 Montague St., originally built in 1891 by the Franklin Trust Bank.

Described as a “gem” in the most recent edition of the AIA Guide to New York City, the building is one of the most important historic buildings in Brooklyn Heights.

RKT&B orchestrated a complete gut renovation of this landmark structure on behalf of developer United Management. Floors were repositioned, new vertical circulation systems were inserted, and new west-facing windows, balconies, and a rooftop terrace were introduced to take advantage of stunning harbor views. A slender one-story glass addition off Clinton Street was designed to access the commercial component of the building.

    One of my favorite buildings in the Heights. Can’t wait to get a tour.

    Pity the developer cheap’ed out on the place as the windows in the condos are not double-gazed and interiors are on the cheap side

    Wow certainly took long enough. I signed up to see those apts back when they anticipated showing in 2008.

    Problem–Brooklyn Heights has hotels that have become rundown SROs & filled by City agencies with “undesirables.” Oh my!

    Reaction–We must do something about this! But alas, what can be done?

    Solution–”Dump” them on the Watchtower at a fraction of what they’re worth! Those clean-cut Witnesses will rid us of the unsavory “undesirables” & make those worthless buildings look spiffy-new again! God bless those Witnesses, they’re so diligent & wholesome!

    So who’s to mind years later when those deserving Witnesses make enormous profits on those once “distressed” properties!? God love them!

    The anatomy of a scam.
