After decades of industrial use, Brooklyn's Greenpoint waterfront is now undergoing a dramatic transformation into a residential neighborhood. One of the first projects under construction in this new neighborhood is The Greenpoint, a 40-story condo and rental tower located at West Street between India and Huron Streets. Developers of the project include Mack Real Estate Group and Palin Enterprises with Urban Development Partners.
Ismael Leyva Architects has designed the tower and adjacent five story building with connecting courtyard. The lower 27 floors contain the project's 287 rentals, with 95 condos located on floors 28 to 40. The concrete superstructure is now rising and has surpassed the first of the taller condo floors. An additional 81 rentals will be located in the five-story low rise structure fronting West Street. Residents will have access to 30,000-square-feet of amenities, including the courtyard.
