The first new building applications have been filed for a site currently occupied by a warehouse at 280 Bond Street, in Gowanus, Brooklyn. The developer is “Gowanus by Design”, a non-profit company whose mission is to construct sustainable developments to quell concerns in the neighborhood about contamination from the Gowanus Canal. The four-story and 50-foot-tall structure will total 33,713 square feet of residential space, and contain fourteen units, likely condominiums, which will average over 2,400 square feet apiece. There will be ten duplexes, with four between the first floor and mezzanine, and six between the second and third floors. Plans include parking spaces for 21 cars, as well as room for 13 bikes and storage for four of the residential units in the cellar space. Atelier New York is responsible for the design, and demolition permits for the warehouse were pulled back in March.

Back in February of 2016, YIMBY revealed a new four-story condominium building coming to 371 Baltic Street, in Brooklyn’s Boerum Hill neighborhood. Now, job applications have been filed for the site, indicating that construction is about to move forward. Permits were also filed back in 2014, however, there have been changes since then, when the original plan called for preserving the first two floors of an extant structure. Instead, that has been demolished completely. The scope of the project has remained almost the same, totaling 4,998 square feet of residential space, to be divided among four units.
Property owner Mark Rechler, doing business as an anonymous Long Island City-based LLC, has filed applications for a four-story, three-unit residential building at 130 Carroll Street, in Carroll Gardens. The structure will measure 6,460 square feet and its residential units should average 1,557 square feet apiece, indicative of condominiums. A triplex apartment will be located on the cellar through second floors, followed by a duplex apartment on part of the second floor and the third floor. Another duplex apartment will be hosted on the fourth floor and an upper penthouse level. Long Island City-based Atelier New York Architecture is the architect of record. The 37-foot-wide, 3,650-square-foot plot consists of a vacant lot and a three-story townhouse at 128 Carroll Street. Demolition permits have yet to be filed.
