Over the summer was when YIMBY last checked in on the two-building, 700-unit development under construction at 363-365 Bond Street, in Gowanus. At the time, the Lightstone Group’s building at 365 Bond was structurally complete and getting its curtain wall, and foundation work was ongoing at 363 Bond. Today, 365 Bond is wrapping up construction and its leg of the public esplanade along the Gowanus Canal is receiving its finishing touches, Pardon Me For Asking reports. Meanwhile, since Atlantic Realty Development acquired the 363 Bond site, the building has risen four stories. 365 Bond is expected to be completed within the next few months, and 363 Bond will probably wrap up construction in 2017. Both buildings will include small retail and community facility components.
YIMBY last checked in on the 32-story, 384-unit mixed-use building under construction at 286 Ashland Place, in Downtown Brooklyn, in November, when it was 24-stories-tall.

The building will have 21,928 square feet of retail and 45,148 square feet of community space within its base, and of the residential units located above, 76 will be rented at below-market rates. Construction is expected to be finsihed over the summer, and move-ins are scheduled for the fall. TEN Arquitectos is behind the design.
