A Condo Called "The Gowanus" in Park Slope?

There is no little irony in the fact that, after a lot of effort by developers to rebrand part of Gowanus as Park Slope, a condo in the Slope may be named "The Gowanus." We've referred to it in the past as the Big Mac Building because of its location next to a McDonalds on Fourth Avenue. Yesterday, our friend Gabby Warshawer at Brownstoner, who has been unearthing all sorts of local nuggets, posted a rendering of The Gowanus, which is on First Street. She writes:
It's entirely possible that the building's name has changed since the rendering was produced, but we're fascinated by the fact that the developers would name a condo between 4th and 5th avenues (in Park Slope!) after the canal/industrial neighborhood. The condo will have three one-bedrooms, 16 two-bedrooms and 13 three-bedrooms, and it's supposed to hit the market soon.
We're fascinated too, but have to say that the building looks far less interesting in reality (below)than it does in the rendering.

they're starting to remove the scaffolding on this one and it looks pretty nice.

what's up with the half built yellow building behind it?

also the garage next to mcd's on 4th is for sale- $5 million, with rights to build up to 12 stories.
