In July we noted that Brooklyn Law School had put 2 Pierrepont Street (photo), which has served as student and faculty housing since the school bought it for $2.2 million thirty years ago, up for sale. The Real Deal now reports that Vincent Viola, owner of the NHL Florida Panthers, has bought it for $35 million, a tidy sum for the school. No word on the new owner’s plans for the building; our guess is a gut renovation for–what else?–luxury condos.
