Brooklyn has been buzzing for some time now, from Park Slope parents to Williamsburg hipsters. Now, another neighborhood is drawing the attention of homebuyers looking to invest—Gowanus.
Once one of the most polluted waterways in the country, Gowanus borders the neighborhoods of Red Hook and South Brooklyn to the west, Park Slope to the east, and Sunset Park to the south. It’s also the site of Brooklyn’s first Whole Foods grocery store, and developers are eyeing the location for a 700-unit rental project right along the canal. But beyond gourmet groceries, an influx of creative entrepreneurs, musicians, and artists has made this neighborhood popular.
We found a few properties posted on Househappy that are in or on the edge of Gowanus.
This nearly 1,000-square-foot condo features two bedrooms, two updated baths, a renovated custom kitchen, washer/dryer, wood burning fireplace, terrace, and additional basement storage, along with very low maintenance in a co-op that has just paid off their underlying mortgage.
This two bedroom, two bath condo features keyed elevator access directly into the apartment. An open, sun-filled layout offers 984 square feet of living space, beautiful hardwood floors throughout, washer/dryer, high ceilings, a private storage unit, and a balcony. The modern kitchen has granite countertops and stainless-steel appliances.
