Construction has broken ground at 251 Douglass Street, the site of a 15-story residential building in Gowanus, Brooklyn. Designed by Fogarty Finger Architects and developed by Charney Companies and Tavros Capital, the 15-story building will span 250,000 square feet and yield 260 residential rental apartments. Notably, 25 percent of the inventory will be designated as affordable housing, aligning with city efforts to increase inclusive living options. The development will also include ground-floor retail spaces and parking facilities, enhancing the area’s commercial and residential appeal.
A part of the larger Gowanus Wharf campus, 251 Douglass Street represents the ongoing transformation of Gowanus. The development is located steps from bus stops for the B37 line, and an eight-minute walk to the southwest from the Union Street subway station, serviced by the D, N, and R trains.
