Property owners of the Gowanus Arts Building – a three-story, 14,750-square-foot community hub at 295 Douglass Street, in northern Gowanus – are planning to renovate and upgrade their building. The project will see the construction of a theater and gallery on the ground floor, a rooftop vegetable farm, interior renovations to art studios, and exterior upgrades, according to DNAinfo. Spoke the Hub, a nonprofit dance organization, will hold events in the new theater, which will open in early 2017. The roof farm is being dubbed Gowanus Sky Farm and will be designed by Brooklyn Grange. Civic Architecture Workshop is designing the overall project. Construction is expected to begin this summer, although some existing tenants must first move out temporarily.
