From Wednesday's Brooklyn Eagle:

“We’re asking $22.5 million,” said Brian Leary, a partner and broker with Massey Knakal Realty Services, who is representing the sellers.

“And there has been a tremendous amount of interest both from local developers as well as national ones,” he added.

The controversial property, known as the Peaks Mason Mints “candy factory,” was a former Mitchell-Lama building containing artist loft studios that went through a buyout in 2003. The new owners, The Praedium Group, identified as 20 Henry Street Associates LLC, did not renew tenants’ leases and forced them out with stated plans to convert the existing 43-unit seven-story building to luxury condos, in addition to doing away with the adjacent sculpture garden in favor of a nine-story building.
