Creative, think-out-the-box architecture is finally integrated within a full-service condo building at the Gowanus-Park Slope border. Here at 229 9th Street is where Happy Living Development is bringing to market Luna, a 39-unit condominium cascading 10 stories into the Brooklyn skyline.

Slated for occupancy later this year, the LUNA offers 39 contemporary condominiums with custom-crafted finishes, many adorned with the project's overall arch theme. Additionally, the amenity-laden property is described as the “first full-service condo building in Gowanus.” A recent January 2020 visit to the construction site shows that the building's striking facade is just about done, revealing an eccentric mash-up of arched windows.

Architect Luca Andrisani won the 2016 Copper in Architecture Award from the Copper Development Association for his work on the exquisite, punched-metal lattice at Aperture 538 in nearby Clinton Hill, and there are echos of that in his Gowanus project. Luna also plays with fenestration, local typologies, and abstracted modernity, albeit in a wholly different manner. An official press release describes the array of varying, half-moon window arches as “playful,” yet the facade also channels a staid, stalwart dignity undeniably related to the area’s stalwart loft architecture. The arched aesthetic permeates the building inside and out, variously expressed depending on location. An awning welcomes arriving residents beneath a sheet of curved glass.
Sales got off to a brisk start over the summer with a flurry of listings entering contract in the months that followed. As of this writing, current availabilities start at $565K for studios, $730K for one-bedrooms, and $1.02 million for two-bedrooms. A two-bedroom penthouse with a private terrace is also on the market for $1.65 million.

All apartments make the most of natural light through custom-designed windows and incorporate warm materials and rich color palettes. Kitchens are finished with custom Italian cabinetry, professional-grade Miele appliances with integrated panels, and Italian Carrara marble counters and islands.
Carrara also features at the floors, walls, and showers in the master bathrooms, which offer extra luxury with polished chrome rain head walk-in showers. Secondary bathrooms switch the material palette to Lady Gray marble accents and rift-cut white oak wall panels.

Alternating half-crescent archways array as a dynamic enfilade in the lobby. Stark white curves of the seating alcoves in the lobby pleasantly juxtapose against the wood-grained walls and wood-slatted ceiling.

The abstract motif ascends to its apotheosis in the fitness center, where a whimsical multi-wall mirror arcade evokes echoes of Antonio Gaudi, Salvador Dali, and Alvar Aalto all at once without any seeming contradiction.
The building is attended by a part-time doorman with virtual back-up, and additional amenities include a roof deck, library, co-working lounge, party room, game room with billiards, kitchenette, children’s playroom, pet spa, and bicycle room. Resident parking and storage are available for an extra fee.
The mid-block building mitigates varying urban scales to the east and west through an array of ascending terraces. The 48,058-square-foot structure greets the low-rise block with a five-story wing, and gradually rises to 118 feet at its eastern end, where it joins the expanding skyline of mid- and high-rise buildings lined along the nearby 4th Avenue.
The telescoping massing allows for spacious terraces at the setbacks, both for common and private unit use. Its unobstructed siting and northwest orientation facing New York Harbor and Lower Manhattan makes Luna a contender for one of the best condos for watching Fourth of July fireworks, and highly enviable skyline views all year round.
