499 President Street Begins Vertical Ascent In Gowanus, Brooklyn

HERO 499President
Michael Young - New York YIMBY

Construction is rising on 499 President Street, an eight-story residential building in Gowanus, Brooklyn. Designed by SLCE Architects and developed by The Brodsky Organization and Avery Hall Investments, the 322,000-square-foot structure will yield 350 rental units in studio to two-bedrooms layouts, with 25 percent designated for affordable housing, as well as 20,000 square feet of ground-floor retail space. Urban Atelier Group is the general contractor for the 1.6-acre property, which is bound by Union Street to the north, President Street to the south, and Nevins Street to the west.

Significant progress has occurred since our last update in May, when excavation had yet to begin. Photos from late last week show the reinforced concrete superstructure already built up to the third story on the westernmost portion of the site.
