GOWANUS — A high-rise industrial building for small manufacturers is set to rise on a vacant lot near the Gowanus Canal, according to Department of Buildings filings.
Builder Abra Construction filed plans Wednesday for a 13-story building at 148 Third St., between the canal and Bond Street. The filing was first reported by The Real Deal.
The 68,000-square-foot building will be designed by architect Karl Fischer to house a variety of small manufacturers including woodworkers, ceramicists, and makers of jewelry, textiles and glass, according to the permit filing.
In an apparent nod to a cleaner future for the heavily polluted canal, the building will also have space for sail makers and boat repair, filings show. There will be also be a roof terrace, 11 bike parking spots and parking for 90 cars, according to the filing.
A representative for Abra Construction did not respond to a request for comment.
The spot where the building is planned is a vacant lot just over the Third Street bridge from the Gowanus Whole Foods. On the next block is 68 Third St., a newly renovated building that's now home to the tech company Genius and a new co-working space.
