Third & Bond

A Green Residential Building in Brooklyn, NY.

  • Located at the intersection of the Carroll Gardens and Gowanus neighborhoods in Brownstone Brooklyn, Third & Bond is a modern adaptation of the traditional townhouse featuring 44 luxury residential condominiums. Designed by Rogers Marvel Architects, Third & Bond will offer high quality and beautiful finishes suitable for families and young professionals who seek “green” living in a friendly and convenient neighborhood.

    Third & Bond is expected to be LEED-Gold and ENERGY STAR labeled to certify that it has met stringent requirements for energy efficiency and environmental sustainability. Currently it is on target to be one of the first residential projects in Brooklyn to receive both green building accolades.

    Third & Bond is featured weekly on the real estate blog, Brownstoner. Each week, postings describe a different part of the development process from acquisition to design to selection of finishes to offering plans and more.
