The Brooklyn Daily Eagle recently pointed out that a number of potential development properties have hit the market in Gowanus. Two of the properties are on Carroll Street with superb views of the superfund canal and the cleanup operation.
The property at 420 Carroll Street has 52,000 square feet of mostly ground floor space. Plus 6,000 square feet of empty space in an adjacent lot. The property next door to it at 430 Carroll Street has a 7,500 square foot building on 26,266 square feet of property.
The Eagle writes that “both sites fall within the area to be rezoned for residential and mixed-use development under the proposed MX Waterfront South Zoning.” Both properties are wired for any high-powered needs, and both are currently zoned M2-1 with a FAR of 2.0.
It will be interesting to see if someone comes with a good idea for large space. The Green Building near the Union Street bridge was a nice surprise. And the building has become a great addition to the neighborhood, bringing in visitors from other parts of the city. Gowanus could become the Williamsburg of South Brooklyn. A brewery or coffee roasting company would be a nice addition.
