Excavation is under way at 470 4th Avenue in Gowanus, where a 12-story building will eventually rise. The Aufgang Architect-designed project will bring 105 apartments and 5,000 square feet of commercial space to the corner of 4th Avenue and 11th Street, according to permits approved this month.
It looks like the development also has a new or alternate address at 237 11th Street. The 84,000-square-foot building will have ground floor retail, a courtyard, a medical office, a gym and 29 cellar parking spots, per Schedule A filings.
Developers Adam America, Slate and the Naveh Shuster Group paid JBS Project Management $20,000,000 for six 19th century wood frame houses and three small commercial buildings on the corner last year, and demolished them last summer.
