In the past few years, Gowanus has become the neighborhood that everyone is talking about. Once little more than an industrial area between Park Slope and Carroll Gardens, Gowanus has become a destination in its own right — Brooklyn’s go-to spot to eat, drink, and play. Curbed readers recently voted Gowanus New York City’s neighborhood of the year.
Situated on the new esplanade park along the canal, 365 Bond is a luxury rental development that gives its residents an amenities package unheard of in New York City — tons of communal space both indoors and out, spectacular views of the Manhattan skyline, and an onsite concierge/valet service that can help you with everything from dry-cleaning to party planning to dog walking to babysitting.
The location is one of the key attractions, of course. 365 Bond is just a couple of blocks away from Brooklyn’s only Whole Foods, and a short walk away from the bars, boutiques, and restaurants of Smith Street, Court Street and Fifth Avenue. The charming, tree-lined streets of Carroll Gardens, are perfect for a stroll, and nearby Gowanus attractions include the Royal Palms Shuffleboard Club, Brooklyn Boulders, Lavender Lake, Ample Hills, and the Bell House.
365 Bond’s ideal location between the F and G trains at Carroll Street and the R train at Union Street means you can commute to downtown Brooklyn and Manhattan in a snap. You can get to lower Manhattan in 10 minutes.
A big part of the 365 Bond experience is the level of its service. There’s valet parking, and the 24-hour concierge is there to help residents arrange dry cleaning, laundry, apartment cleaning, babysitting, housesitting, and dog walking services. A lifestyle director helps to manage the various amenities, including onsite and community events such as wine tasting, dinner reservations and party planning, and personal training in the state-of-the-art fitness center overlooking the waterfront park, where yoga and spin studios also offer regularly programmed classes.
With 40,000 square feet of common space, there are a lot of options for relaxing and entertaining. There’s the new waterfront esplanade park, an interior garden courtyard, and green rooftop terraces which offer not only places for sunbathing and barbecuing, but panoramic views of the New York Harbor and Manhattan skyline.
Indoors, residents can relax by the fire in the library, hang out in the game room, or host a playdate in the children’s room. For special events, 365 Bond offers residence lounges and club rooms and even features a private dining room that comes complete with a gourmet chef’s kitchen. Throughout the spaces, reclaimed wood floors and exposed brick pay stylish homage to the historic and authentic industrial character of the surrounding neighborhood.
This attention to detail extends to the residences themselves, where wide-plank white oak floors lead to floor-to-ceiling, casement-style windows looking out on the surrounding neighborhood and the urban horizon.
The custom Italian kitchens with stainless steel Bosch appliances and quartz countertops create an open space to cook and entertain. Beautifully appointed tiled bathrooms feature Kohler and Symmons fixtures, and each residence comes equipped with in-wall HVAC with digitally programmable thermostats, as well as Bosch washers and dryers.
Because of its central location along the canal, 365 Bond collaborates with a number of organizations and local groups including Arts Gowanus, The Gowanus Ballroom, The Gowanus Canal Conservancy, Arts Bridge and Gowanus Dredgers Canoe Club, whose boat house is actually located within the building.
Gowanus has become a nexus for innovators, trendsetters and artists. Several start-up technology and shared workspace firms, including CoWork and WeWork, have moved to the neighborhood to take advantage of the Gowanus spirit.
Stylish residences, amazing amenities, spectacular views, and a dynamic community all make 365 Bond the place to live in New York City. For more information and to schedule an appointment, check out their website.
