Don't look now, but a little J Condo is coming to Gowanus. Well, not Dumbo's J Condo, per se, but a new development likely to be coming fom The Hudson Companies. Basically, all the buildings in the photo above, which is at Third and Bond Streets in Gowanus were sold last month to Hudson for $7.75 million. The site is almost within organic avocado tossing distance of the planned Whole Foods development and very close to being a neighbor of what the Toll Brothers might eventually build. A neighborhood source says "the developer plans to break ground for a luxury low-rise condominium development this summer." They can do about 46,728 square feet, give or take, on the site "as of right" without going through anything like the drama of the Gowanus rezoning. Maybe they'll call it The G?
