Gowanus Update: Slow Going at the Bunker on Bond
Whenever we pass by the building that we like to call The Bunker on Bond Street because of its
I would like to note the strange faux walnut veneer siding and tiny dot-dash shaped windows on the Bond St side. Bank Leumi has financed 346 Bond Street which could possibly account for its West Bank style. Tiny windows help in dry, desert climates to conserve energy and keep interiors cool. Also small windows are used in libraries of Universities for riot safety. I'd say this building alone could entice a design riot or two.Someday, when the work wraps up on the Bunker, we will get the full effect of the building looming across the Gowanus Canal from the Carroll and Union Street Bridges.
