What massive Gowanus rental project could displace

If the Lightstone Group erects its 700-unit rental building at 363-365 Bond Street on the Gowanus Canal, Gowanus Grove, site of the Mister Sunday DJ music parties, will have to relocate, DNAinfo reported.

Gowanus Grove occupies part of the block at 400 Carroll Street and the developer told DNAinfo that the rental, which would include both market-rate and affordable housing, requires the entire block and that Gowanus Grove would need to move.

As previously reported, Lightstone’s plan has already been met with some resistance. A concern of sewage arose from a Gowanus resident, who said that he’s had five feet of raw sewage flood his basement during flash floods. “You’re increasing the sewage by 700 toilets, 700 showers, 700 sinks. They need to [assure] the people who live here that our basements won’t flood.”

Lightstone also told The Real Deal that the building proposal would not be affected by the Gowanus clean-up process. [DNAinfo]
