Progress continues at Greenpoint Landing, the waterfront mega project from developers Park Tower Group, Brookfield Property Partners, and L+M Development Partners. Handel Architects is responsible for the design of the master plan and the current sites completed or under construction. The master plan will bring 10 towers and about 5,500 residential units to the Greenpoint neighborhood in Brooklyn. Approximately 1,400 of those units will be permanently affordable, some of which are already being offered through housing lotteries for the first three all-affordable low-rise buildings at or near completion. Also included in the development will be a waterfront park from James Corner Field Operations and a K-8 public school on the corner of Franklin and Dupont Street.
Concrete superstructure has topped out at 37 Blue Slip, the first market rate tower of the Greenpoint Landing mega project. The 30-story tower will rise 300 feet and offer 373 residential units when completed. Installation of the brick and window wall façade is also underway. The materials were selected to tie the tower into the neighborhood's industrial past and the adjacent affordable buildings in the development.
Initial site work is also underway on the second market rate tower, located on an adjacent site to the west of 37 Blue Slip.
