We noted in May 2021 that St. Francis College was moving from its campus in Brooklyn Heights (photo) to space in a new building in downtown Brooklyn. Today The Real Deal reported that St. Francis had sold its now vacant campus, located between Remsen and Joralemon streets on the block between Clinton and Court, to Alexico Group, a developer of — guess what? — luxury residences. For the property St. Francis got a cool $200 million. With part of that perhaps they can construct new athletic facilities which, as our 2021 post noted, their new space lacks.
