Work is nearing completion on 300 Huntington Street, a six-story commercial building in Gowanus, Brooklyn. Designed by Dattner Architects and Bernheimer Architecture and developed and built by Monadnock Development, the 101,000-square-foot structure will yield 80,000 square feet of office space, 12,290 square feet of retail space, a 3,470-square-foot industrial workshop, 5,780 square feet of unspecified building service area, and a 15,490-square-foot rear yard dedicated to the anchor tenant. The property is bound by Huntington Street to the north, 9th Street to the south, the Gowanus Canal to the east, and Smith Street to the east.
The entire building has been enclosed in its dark gray brick façade and grid of oversized windows since our last update in mid February, when the steel-framed superstructure had recently topped out and stood largely exposed. Work is now progressing on the top of the fourth-floor setback, where crews are laying white stone tile for the outdoor terraces. The only other outstanding task is the construction of the landscaped esplanade along the Gowanus Canal.
Updated renderings of 300 Huntington Street preview the activation of the roof terrace, as well as the ground-floor retail frontage and the SCAPE Landscape Architecture-designed public plaza. This 7,548-square-foot public esplanade will feature newly planted trees, wooden benches, tables, and lush garden beds.
Here we see the northern corner of 300 Huntington Street.

The property is located on a previously vacant lot that was prepared for construction by VHB Engineering following an Environmental Assessment Statement by the Department of City Planning. The development is located directly beside the elevated platform of the Smith-9th Streets station, serviced by the local F and G trains.
YIMBY anticipates construction on 300 Huntington Street to conclude near the end of the year.
