Our Lady of Vilnius Rectory for Demolition: Error or Premature Revelation?

According to Yimby, OLV's neighbor, the parking garage at 111 Varick, is to be replaced by a 15 story condo building.

The item, posted on Yimby with the title "Permits Filed: 15-Story Apartment Building At 111 Varick Street, Hudson Square" goes on to say
"While the site hasn’t changed hands since 1979, development rights for this lot and three neighboring ones on Broome and Dominick Streets sold for $3,500,000 in March. Demolition permits have been filed for those other three buildings—568 and 572 Broome and 32 Dominick Street—indicating that the development will occupy all four properties."
Despite this assertion, I have not seen any filings on the DOB "Filings" page for 32 Dominick. Though when I paid a visit to the rectory yesterday, it did not look like the future home of a lover of Federal architecture.

What do they have to do to demolish this landmarked building that has been extolled for its authenticity?
