Permits have been filed for a new six-story residential building at 670 Union Street, in the Brooklyn neighborhood of Gowanus. The site is between 4th Avenue and 5th Avenue, and sits half a block away from the Union Street subway on the R train. The new structure will rise from a lot that is currently home to a pair of two-story buildings, 670A and 670B Union Street, and William Caleo of 668-670 Union LLC is listed as the developer.
Mesh Architecture is designing the 24,000 square foot building, which includes a cellar, and will rise 70 feet. The cellar level will most likely hold the 11 enclosed parking spaces. The 8,334 square foot lot stretches 81 feet wide, and come with 31-foot long backyard.
The building will be constructed with a wood frame structure. 14 units will be spread among the six floors.
No completion or demolition schedule for the ground-up project has been announced yet.
