Gowanus' evolution from industrial hub to haven for creative fields to a family-friendly residential neighborhood can be seen at the site of 480 Degraw Street. Once upon a time, turning an abandoned Gowanus warehouse into a music venue would have been seen as the next logical step. But in spring 2013, when Brooklyn Bowl owner Peter Shapiro announced his intention to convert such a building to Rock and Roll Playhouse, his plan was met with opposition from neighbors who feared the late-night performances planned would affect their quality of life. They were unmoved by the promise of music classes for children during the day, and demolition permits were ultimately filed in March 2017.

About six months later, permits were filed for a four-story, 13-unit condominium that would be designed and developed by Build360 and Atelier New York. Residents have their choice of duplex, penthouse, or townhouse units; and, with layouts ranging from two- to four-bedrooms, all are sized to accommodate growing families as well as buyers desperate for more space after months on lockdown.
Sales have just launched on the apartments inside from $2.2 million for three-bedrooms and $2.3 million for four-bedrooms. At an average price of $1,794 per square foot, the building is well above the Gowanus average of $1,091 per square foot (per CityRealty data). However, luxury condos of this type are still relatively rare in this section of Brooklyn.
Residential amenities at 480 Degraw Street include a dog washing station, bike room, and state-of-the-art automated parking garage that can accommodate up to 21 cars and 11 electric vehicle charging pads. It is located on a quiet side street, albeit one with easy access to the dining and shopping of Court Street and Smith Street, not to mention Gowanus nightlife, local schools, and the Carroll Street F/G subway stop.
