Gowanus Bay Power Plant Coming Down


    The Department of Buildings Thursday issued a demolition permit for a power plant overlooking Gowanus Bay just south of Red Hook between 31st and 32nd streets. We couldn’t find a lot of information about the building, which is next to a prison, but it appears to be owned by the city, or more specifically the New York Economic Development Corporation. The architect is Zambrano Architectural Design. Industry City, or Bush Terminal, which recently acquired a new co-owner, Jamestown Properties, and is slated for more development, is located just down the road. The NYEDC is working on several projects in the area, including developing the Sunset Park waterfront for public use and making a nearby vacant warehouse, known as Federal Building No. 2, into a “a state-of-the-art industrial center.” Anyone know more about this property?
