Foundation work has given away to vertical construction at 645 Union Street, in Gowanus, where a five-story, 78-key hotel is planned, dubbed Gowanus Inn & Yard. According to Brownstoner, Matt Abramcyk and Alec Shtromandel are developing, while Kutnicki Bernstein Architects is serving as the architect of record. The building, located at the R train’s Union Street stop, will measure 18,835 square feet in total, and a restaurant will operate in the cellar. Completion is expected in Summer of 2016.
Property owner Michel Cohen has filed applications for a seven-story, 10,470 square-foot manufacturing building at the vacant lot of 454 Carroll Street, in Gowanus, three blocks from the R train’s Union Street stop. The building will house manufacturing space and accessory offices, as well as a care-takers dwelling unit, according to the Schedule A. Thomas Barry’s Opera Studio Architecture is designing.
Property owner Salvatore Lombardi has filed demolition permits to remove the existing two-story, two-unit house at 139 15th Street, in southern Gowanus, two blocks north of the Prospect Avenue stop on the R train. The property could yield a new development of 6,164 square feet, and Brownstoner notes that applications were filed in 2011 for a five-story, eight-unit building. The site hasn’t changed hands since 2010, so plans for such a project may still be in the works.
