A new-construction townhouse with a traditional brick row house exterior in Gowanus is now on the market and asking $4,250,000. A Google Maps photo of the building under construction at 442 Union Street shows a four-story building with a traditional black cornice, lintels, and extra-long windows on the parlor floor.
Inside the interiors are clean and modern. The 4,320-square-foot home features 10.5-foot ceilings and four-inch rift-sawn oak flooring on the parlor level. A private garden, roof terrace and — notably — an elevator are among its amenities.
The owner’s unit occupies all four floors; there is also an apartment with its own private entrance on the garden floor.
The architect of record is Issac & Stern. Platt Dana Architects designed the interiors. The developer, an LLC listed on permits as Jack Bain, bought the empty lot in 2013 for $899,000.
This is one of many new townhouses to go up in recent years in the area. What do you think of it and the price?
