Bernard Dillenberger’s Abra Construction Corp. filed plans to build a 13-story, nearly 68,000-square-foot industrial building on a vacant lot in Gowanus, according to a permit application filed with the Department of Buildings on Wednesday.

The building at 148 3rd Street will have 16,300 square feet of commercial space and 51,620 square feet of manufacturing space, the filing shows.

Manufacturing uses in the building will include sail making, woodworking, glass production, textile production, ceramic production and jewelry manufacturing. The site will also have a 90-car parking lot, according to the filing.

Architect Karl Fischer, who is especially active in Brooklyn, is serving as the architect of record.

Property records show Abra purchased the property, as well as the adjacent parcel at 421 Bond Street, for $5.5 million in 2013.

Dillenberger declined to comment, while Fischer could not be reached.

Abra Construction also developed a nine-story, nine-unit condominium building at 83 Walker Street in Tribeca, according to StreetEasy.
