A nearly empty office building in Brooklyn Heights that once housed the Bankruptcy Court is being converted to condominiums.
The office building at 75 Clinton St. runs the full block between Montague and Remsen streets, and contains three retail spaces on the ground floor with offices filling the eight stories above.
Though most of the building will be turned into condos, the Rite-Aid store in the building on the corner of Montague Street is staying.
The other two shops, Photo Real and Bolton’s will close.
Most of the building’s offices have been empty since the judges, clerks and paralegals of the bankruptcy court moved out last year.
A federal probation service remains in the building, but a retail space in the basement has been vacant for several years.
Permits filed with the Department of Buildings allow only for interior demolition work so far.
Clinton Realty Holdings, the New Jersey–based company that owns the building, did not return phone calls.
