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.

Installation of the brick and window wall façade is nearing completion at 37 Blue Slip, the first market rate tower of the Greenpoint Landing mega project. The 30-story tower stands 300 feet tall and will offer 373 residential units when completed. The materials were selected to tie the tower into the neighborhood's industrial past and the adjacent affordable buildings in the development.

Construction is also underway on the second market rate tower at 41 Blue Slip. Designed by Handel Architects, the tower will stand 40 stories tall and has started to rise adjacent to the first market rate tower at 37 Blue Slip. Superstructure has surpassed the fourth floor.
