Gowanus Green is a mixed-use project that plans to redevelop a six-acre brownfield with a vibrant new residential community. Incorporating the community’s visioning principles, it is also aimed at reconnecting the Carroll Garden’s neighborhood to the Gowanus Canal with innovative and environmentally sensitive public open spaces.

The design features eight residential buildings, totaling 1 million SF, with a ground floor retail area, an open space on the water front, public parks, a community space and a boathouse.
Waterfront activities along Gowanus Canal
The development program is brought together by an integrated landscape and a storm water management system of green roofs, a rain garden, and biswales.
Proposed new street network
With new activity and recreational opportunities, the site will seek to revitalize a space that has long remained polluted and unused.
