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.

Greenpoint Landing’s first completed market rate tower is 37 Blue Slip, a 30-story tower designed by Handel Architects. The tower stands 300 feet tall and offers 373 residential units. The materials were selected to tie the tower into the neighborhood's industrial past and the adjacent affordable buildings in the development.
