In February, it was reported that Alloy Development would be building its new headquarters at 341 Nevins Street (a.k.a. 431 Carroll Street), in Gowanus. The firm has recently filed applications for the project, which will measure 9,923 square feet and rise 38 feet above street level. Part of the ground floor will be leased as retail space for a restaurant, while Alloy’s office space will be located on the rest of the ground floor, a mezzanine level associated with the ground floor, and the second floor.
