The Watchtower Bible and Tract Society is planning to build an 850 person residential and administrative complex in Rockland County according to the Journal News. The organization paid $11.5 million for the land in Ramapo which is located near its printing facilities in Ulster County. The Watchtower successfully sold a few of its properties in Brooklyn Heights over the last few years including what is now known as One Brooklyn Bridge Park and the Standish Arms. Its sale of the Hotel Bossert fell through late last year. The report adds that “the society plans to move many of its administrative offices from Brooklyn, where it has overseen its worldwide operations for 100 years.”
