A teaser site with a fresh exterior rendering has emerged for the condos planned for 345 Carroll Street on the site of what was the Regency Carts building in Gowanus. Designed by GLUCK+, the development will have 32 condos, 18 terraces, a secret garden and private parking.

Sterling Equities filed new building applications in the fall, which were disapproved, and a demo application that hasn’t been approved yet. Despite its lack of construction progress, 345 Carroll will launch sales in June with pricing starting at $1,500,000, according to a PR rep. Next door at the Hell Building, rentals are about to hit the market after a decade of construction. The rendering looks pretty good to us, but what do you think?

Some new renderings and details have emerged from what is known as the Carroll Gardens Hell Building at 335 Carroll Street, which will begin leasing soon. BuzzBuzzHome spotted the renderings yesterday, but listings aren’t up yet. Above, the lounge area features a brick fireplace filled with wood, turquoise bookshelves and a pool table with matching turquoise felt.

The bathrooms are modern looking and feature shades of white and brown. A kitchen is lighter toned with industrial style subway tile, painted cupboards and what looks like a glass-fronted island. There is a mural in a common hallway.

MySpace NYC is marketing the Scarano-designed apartments, which include studios, one-, two- and three-bedrooms. Most of the units have outdoor space, ranging from a 30-square-foot balcony with a studio to a 375-square-foot patio with a ground floor duplex. The building also has a lounge, roof deck and gym, according to the building website.

The decade-long warehouse conversion is supposed to wrap up construction soon, according to construction signage we spotted in March. See more renderings after the jump. What do you think of the look?

A sign just went up last week at 335 Carroll Street, aka the Carroll Gardens “Hell Building,” that says “coming spring 2014.” A check of broker MySpaceNYC’s site reveals, as rumored earlier, they are likely to be rentals. The site doesn’t have any details, but the address is listed under the “rentals” section.

The warehouse conversion has dragged on for years. The construction site sign says it’s is scheduled to finish by May 1. Last we heard, Sterling Equities was considering buying and demolishing the Hell Building after acquiring the Regency Carts site next door for $12,500,000. No sales have hit the public records, and as far as we know developer Isaac Fishman still owns the property.

We’ve included a photo of the building after the jump.

Reps from Sterling Equities tell us the four-story development planned for the Regency Carts site in Gowanus will become condos. And the new building will have 35 apartments, instead of the 32 we reported when the developers filed plans in October. Scaffolding was erected last week, as GYFO noted, and it looks like work could begin soon. Sterling applied for demo applications in October, but they haven’t been approved because the DOB disapproved the original plan exam earlier this month. And the developer filed last month to change the address from 337 to 345 Carroll — possibly to distance the new project from the never-ending construction at the “Hell Building” next door at 333 Carroll Street?

Sterling Equities filed plans earlier this week to build a four-story, 32-unit residential development on the site of the Regency Carts building in Gowanus. GLUCK+ architects will design the 53,475-square-foot development at 337 Carroll Street, according to the plan exam application filed October 22. BuzzBuzzHome spotted the plan application, which says the building will have 27 enclosed parking spaces, a common roof terrace and private exterior space. The developer also filed demolition permits for the two-story white building. Sterling bought the property in May for $12,500,000 and is in negotiations to buy the unfinished “Hell Building” next door at 333 Carroll, as we reported last month.

The hotly debated warehouse conversion at 333 Carroll Street is under negotiations to be acquired by Wilpon Development Co., which wants to tear it down and combine the lot with neighboring Regency Carts Hotel site, according to a tipster. Since Wilpon recently purchased the hotel at 337 Carroll, the tipster said, the developer wants to demolish both buildings to create a “jumbo lot.” Developer Isaac Fishman first filed permits to convert the red-brick warehouse at 333 Carroll to apartments in 2005, and according to DOB records, wanted to build 31 units. He then proceeded to put up a 40-foot steel addition so ugly (and illegal) that neighbors took to calling it the “Hell Building.” Although the addition came down in April 2011, construction for the rumored rental units continued through this summer.

True to the rumors from tipsters a few months back, the Regency Carts building at 337 Carroll Street in Gowanus sold to Sterling Equities. The sale just hit public records for $12.5 million. Back then, we heard that plans for the one-story building included a five-story residential complex that would likely end up condos. The new developers have not yet filed plans with the DOB, though. This building is right next door to the Hell Building at 333 Carroll Street, which is rumored to be a rental development once the drama-filled conversion is finished.
