GOWANUS - The Brooklyn Eagle has learned that Boymelgreen Developers' 
Gowanus Village property is back on the market.

Also a brownfield site, both Sara Mirski, a developer with Boymelgreen, 
and the State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC), which 
oversees the Brownfield Cleanup Program, confirmed to the Eagle in 2005 
that the company had submitted a brownfield cleanup application - filed 
under the name of Gowanus Village I LLC - to the state proposing to 
conduct "remedial activities" at the site. The properties, previously 
used for manufacturing, included uses like a sulphur works and 
coal-fired power station, a paper mill, lumber yard, garage with 
gasoline storage tanks, an iron junk yard and auto repair shop, 
according to the application filed with the DEC by Boymelgreen.

Additionally, Mirski said at the time that Boymelgreen wanted to 
construct environmentally conscious "green buildings" and reduce the 
amount of runoff sent into the Gowanus Canal, while cleaning water 
before it reaches the canal.
