Property Description

Cushman & Wakefield has been retained on an exclusive basis to arrange for the sale of a commercial building with development potential in Gowanus, Brooklyn.
The subject property is located on the north side of Douglass Street between 3rd and 4th Avenues in the Gowanus neighborhood of Brooklyn. The lot dimensions are 80’ x 100’ and it contains an improved, single-story brick warehouse that measures 8,000 SF. The property is built full to the lot and contains two curb cuts and two roll up gates. The property is located in an M1-2 zoning district which has a 2.0 FAR and allows for 16,000 SF of commercial development as-of-right. 321 Douglass Street is owner occupied and will be delivered vacant upon sale.
The Department of City Planning (DCP) released a rezoning framework in June 2018 that divides the Gowanus into 10 “submarkets.” 321 Douglass Street is located within the “Midblock” submarket which will increase the allowable density for industrial, commercial, and arts-oriented uses, alleviate parking requirements, and restrict residential uses. 321 Douglass Street is well positioned to benefit from the upzoning and the surrounding commercial and mixed-use future development.
Situated between three well-established residential neighborhoods, Cobble Hill, Boerum Hill, and Park Slope, Gowanus has become the connecting fabric of the area offering a variety of retail destinations including: Whole Foods, Freek’s Mill, Claro, Insa, Royal Palms Shuffleboard, Pig Beach, Dinosaur BBQ, Three’s Brewing, Other Half Brewing, Court Street Grocers, Abbotsford Road Coffee Specialists, and the Bell House to name a few. 321 Douglass Street is located just five blocks south of Brooklyn’s premier entertainment and transportation hub, Barclay’s Center and the Atlantic Terminal. The property is also located three blocks north of the Union Street subway station (R), is surrounded by numerous Citi Bike stations and is serviced by multiple bus routes.
