Toward the end of last spring, YIMBY brought you a construction update on the first two affordable housing components for the 5,500-unit Greenpoint Landing megaproject, in northern Greenpoint along the waterfront. At the time, foundation work was underway at 33 Eagle Street, where a seven-story, 98-unit residential building is planned, and now the building appears to have topped out, per Brownstoner.

At 21 Commercial Street, a six-story, 93-unit building has since received the majority of its façade, with glass installation likely imminent. The buildings will also feature 1,514 and 2,557 square feet in ground-floor retail space, respectively. Handel Architects is designing both buildings, while Park Tower Group and L+M Development are developing. Completion is expected in mid-2016.
