These views are heavenly.

Pardon the pun, but we felt compelled to use it. The building with these OMG-worthy vistas belongs to the Jehovah’s Witnesses.

It’s 107 Columbia Heights, an 11-story residential building in the Brooklyn Heights Historic District that the Watchtower recently put up for sale. It could go for more than $1,000 per square foot, the Commercial Observer has reported, which would be upwards of $154 million.

The religious organization, which has been a presence in Brooklyn Heights for a century, is liquidating its real estate portfolio in the landmarked neighborhood and DUMBO to prepare for a move to upstate New York.

News for those who live, work and play in Brooklyn and beyond

The Brooklyn Eagle obtained the Watchtower’s permission to publish these photos, which are on a website the organization created to market 107 Columbia Heights.

The photo of the rooftop terrace is a visual reminder that the 102-foot-tall property was constructed in 1959, before the neighborhood was landmarked and a height restriction was imposed for new buildings.

The view includes the World Trade Center, the Woolworth Building and the Brooklyn Bridge. Amen and Hallelujah!
