Construction Update: Greenpoint Landing

Significant progress is being made 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.

37 Blue Slip

Concrete superstructure has reached the half-way mark 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. Brick, metal, and glass will clad the façade, tying the tower into the adjacent affordable buildings in the development.
