Gowanus Development

By Lisa M. Collins

Gowanus Canal may see new condos

A controversial development proposal to build residential and commercial buildings along Bond Street between Carroll and 2nd St., on the banks of the Gowanus Canal, on the Carroll Gardens side, is moving through the city planning department.

The Lightstone Group is proposing now to build 500 units of housing and to raise the structures so that any flood waters could drain into a “bathtub-like” drainage area under the buildings.

You can read all about it on the great Carroll Gardens blog, Pardon Me For Asking.
