Gowanus at a Glance
Gowanus, whose name is derived from the canal that splits the neighborhood in half, has undergone an amazing transformation in recent years. Industrial buildings have been converted to co-working spaces, and former manufacturing buildings converted to restaurants, music venues, and art galleries. The area is also on the verge of a major mixed-use rezoning which will bring online more than 8,200 apartments, an influx of residential density and increased commercial activity that is sure to boost the ongoing demand for commercial space.
