Just What Gowanus Needs, Green Luxury Condo Living at Jade8

New, 21 comments

Brownstoner has been following the progression of the residential building at 186 8th Street in Gowanus since the stalled project got moving again this past April; now the entire whiplash-inducing facade has been revealed (warning: it's ugly) and six of its eight units are listed. The boutique development is called Jade8, and it's billed as "top-quality green construction" featuring the "finest in energy-efficient technology for today's eco-conscious consumer." (Though this is probably true to some degree, what we really wish for Gowanus is that every new eco-building is hooked up to a larger system of clean water filtration. Something that acts like... a giant sponge.)

We digress! Prices are all over the place, from a one-bedroom duplex at $825,000 ($642/sq ft) to a smaller two-bedroom unit for $735,000 ($805/sq ft). The penthouse fits in three bedrooms, though curiously, its kitchen, living, and roof deck are clustered on the uppermost floor of the building.
