CW Realty purchased 251 Front Street from Tocci Brothers two years ago for $20 million, as first reported by The Real Deal.  Tocci Brothers was initially eyeing a 72-unit luxury building for low- and middle-income tenants before scrapping plans when Brooklyn City Councilmember Steve Levin opposed the plans, per TRD
