A joint venture of Canyon Partners Real Estate, Tavros Holdings and Charney Companies will develop a 224-unit multifamily project in Gowanus, Brooklyn

Canyon Partners JV to Develop Multifamily in Gowanus

Canyon Partners Real Estate LLC, Tavros Holdings and Charney Companies formed a joint venture to develop 585 Union St. The 224-unit multifamily development is located within a Qualified Opportunity Zone in the Gowanus neighborhood of Brooklyn. 

The project is being capitalized with $57.7 million of equity, and the JV simultaneously closed on a $107-million senior construction loan from Pacific Western Bank. Canyon’s investment marks its 11th QOZ investment, totaling $1.2 billion of project capitalization. 

“Gowanus’s industrial beauty and artistic character makes it one of the most exciting cultural hubs in New York City, and we couldn’t be more thrilled to be a part of its expansion,” said Nicholas Silvers, founding partner at Tavros.  

Twenty-five percent of available units will be allocated to affordable housing and the project design will feature an entirely electric building, with flood resistant landscape and plantings.
