A trio of renderings from Fogarty Finger are the first to reveal a nine-story mixed-use building at 585 Union Street in Gowanus, Brooklyn. The development team responsible for the building includes Tavros Capital, Charney Companies, and Canyon Partners.
The building will top out at 95 feet above ground and will comprise around 167,000 square feet. Renderings show a rippled curtain wall with floor-to-ceiling windows and a light gray stone façade. Above the third and seventh floors, the building sets back to reveal a darker gray facade with similarly sized full-height windows.
The residential component will span 158,000 square feet with 214 rental units, 25 percent of which will be designated as affordable housing. Available units will range from studios up to three-bedroom floor plans. Select units on the fourth and eighth floors will include a private outdoor terrace.
When complete, tenant amenities will include a fitness center, a roof deck, and a swimming pool. Additional components will include an 8,900-square-foot commercial volume and a parking structure designed to accommodate up to 72 vehicles.
Permits for the building were filed with New York City’s Department of Buildings in November 2021 and originally listed the site as 577 Union Street. Since then, Pacific Western Bank provided a $107 million construction loan to the joint development venture.
More recently, the South Brooklyn Casket Company warehouse property that occupied the site has been demolished, but the new structure has yet to go vertical. The team has not confirmed when the project might be completed.
