New York—A new luxury residential development by national real estate investor/developer Lightstone is coming to Brookyln’s Gowanus neighborhood and will soon welcome its first residents. The company is hoping to attract residents to 365 Bond St., the first residential development on the Gowanus Canal, with the opening of the leasing gallery managed by Douglas Elliman.

The apartment community offers 430 units in Gowanus, a Brooklyn neighborhood gaining traction as of late. Goldstein Hill & West Architects and interior architect Mark Zeff designed 365 Bond, which is located on a new waterfront esplanade park with more than 30,000 square feet of green space. The waterfront park, designed by Weintraub Diaz Landscape Architects, is just one of several parks and green spaces planned for the Gowanus Canal, and offers public seating, fishing and boat access, and serves as an amenity for 365 Bond residents and the public.

Other 365 Bond amenities include: a 24-hour doorman concierge; onsite valet service, including dry cleaning, apartment cleaning and dog walking; an interior garden courtyard; rooftop terraces with sundecks and barbecues; a fitness center with yoga and spin studios; library and club room with fireplaces; kitchen with private dining; and a children’s playroom.

As far as residences go, units feature views of the Gowanus waterfront park and the Manhattan skyline, custom kitchen cabinetry and Bosch kitchen appliances. The community is also close to the only Whole Foods in Brooklyn, and Smith and Court streets’ bars, restaurants and shops in Carroll Gardens, with convenient access to the R and F trains at the Carroll Street subway stop.

“365 Bond redefines Brooklyn living. It is built for urbanites with an appreciation for culture, design and authenticity,” said Scott Avram, senior vice president of Lightstone.

Avram told the Wall Street Journal that market-rate rents will start at $2,000 for a studio and more than $3,000 for a one-bedroom, and 20 percent of the apartments are set aside as affordable housing.

Lightstone President Mitchell Hochberg added, “We are very excited and proud to offer this transformative Gowanus development and to do so while preserving all the culture and character of the neighborhood.”

This isn’t the only residential project Lightstone is taking on to transform the Gowanus neighborhood; the company is also working on a development next door, 363 Bond St., which is set to be completed next year, according to the Wall Street Journal. In total, the company is spending $350 million to develop 700 luxury apartments over the two buildings.
