Transforming a Brownfield into a Green Neighborhood

Hudson is leading a team  of four developers in partnership with the City of New York to redevelop a Gowanus brownfield. Upon completion, Gowanus Green will transform a former Manufactured Gas Plant into a vibrant six-acre mixed use community that reconnects the existing neighborhood to the Gowanus Canal. The project will provide residential rental housing as well as over 65,000 square feet of community and retail space. All the units will be affordable to households with incomes between 30% and 130% of Area Median Income. Gowanus Green will also provide new passive and active recreational opportunities, and a waterfront promenade to this long-vacant and contaminated site.

PROJECT TEAM: Marvel Architects, Fifth Avenue Committee, The Bluestone Organization, and Jonathan Rose Companies
