Rental Building News and Offers

At the height of New York's shipping industry, the area surrounding the Gowanus Canal was a hub of activity, but in the years of shipping decline, upkeep diminished and the canal stagnated as one the most polluted bodies of water in the country. Nevertheless, the waterway and its surrounding neighborhood has been attracting creatives for decades, and the neighborhood has maintained its uncultivated appeal. Now, an ambitious multi-phase residential project on a two-block parcel of land once occupied by warehouses aims to alter the experience of being beside the canal.

The large-scale development is the first for the neighborhood, and the second phase is now coming to a close with the launch of 363 Bond Street. It comes less than a year after the first phase wrapped up, a sister building at 365 Bond Street, which brought a sizable 430 units to the neighborhood.

Positioned at the western side of the historic Carrol Street Bridge, the buildings are designed with a variety of scale and height to embrace the neighborhood, and the canal too is a key component of the development. In addition to the buildings, a landscaped public esplanade was added, designed by Brooklyn-based landscape architect Lee Weintraub, and early renderings made headlines for showing kayakers in the canal - not from what is now know as the 2nd Street boat launch, and is in fact utilized by local canoe and kayak clubs.

Atlantic Realty Development is the developer behind the project, and both buildings are designed by architecture firm Hill West. They rise to the same 12-story height, but the newer building at 363 Bond Street has fewer units than the first.

Leasing recently launched for 363 Bond's 270 apartments, which have up to three bedrooms in contemporary layouts featuring wide plank oak floors and stone window sills. Listings follow the rise in rental concessions, and offer 1 month of free rent with new leases; studios are priced starting from $2,446/month, 1-bedrooms from $3,276/month and 2-bedrooms from $5,178/month. Several units are also listed at 365 Bond Street - see them here.

Homes have floor-to-ceiling windows, and many units overlook the canal. They have varying, unique layouts with open living spaces which can be laid out in a multitude of ways. Each has custom Italian cabinetry and caesarstone countertops, stainless steel Bosch appliances, Nest thermostats, and full-sized washers/dryers. Private outdoor terraces appear on select units with unobstructed views.

The canal isn't rehabilitated enough for swimming (with the exception of clean water advocates), but the 6th-floor rooftop swimming pool is a nice alternative. The space is called the "Brooklyn Crush" and its moniker is emblazoned on a water-tower mural, a commissioned piece by street artist Tristan Eaton. The rooftop pool, which is reportedly the first for Gowanus, has a surrounding sun deck with lounges, a shuffleboard court and views of the Manhattan skyline.

The amenity package includes a 4,000-square-foot fitness center overlooking the esplanade, which will have dedicated training staff and scheduled fitness classes. There is a rooftop lawn with lovely landscaping and barbecue areas, a 2nd-floor courtyard and several outdoor terraces. Other highlights include a game room, resident lounge and kids playroom. The 24-hour attended lobby has a post-industrial design with exposed wood beams and interesting lighting features, and it also features commissioned work by local artists.

363 Bond was constructed through the city's Inclusionary Housing Program and holds 54 permanently affordable units. A housing lottery took place earlier this year for qualifying New Yorkers, and these units will be priced between $833/month and $1,082/month.

The building was dubbed "Paris on the Gowanus" after the developer said it was inspired by a residential project in the Canal Saint-Martin neighborhood in Paris, which helped to create a “newly hip atmosphere” near a similarly polluted waterway. Hill West notes the design of 363 Bond draws from "the industrial language of the Gowanus warehouses but uses greyish brick to differentiate itself from typical red brick buildings," and while the two sister buildings were designed as a complementary pair, each stands alone.
