A sprawling seven-story residential building may replace a cluster of warehouses and office buildings at 22 Eckford Street, next to McCarren Park in Greenpoint.
Westchester County-based Matt Development has filed applications for a five-story, 21-unit mixed-use building at 144 West Street, in Greenpoint, located a block in from the East River. The building will total 14,805 square feet, and includes 1,190 square feet of retail space on the ground floor. All but two residential units will be located on the second through fifth floors, and outdoor rooftop space will be available to residents. The units will likely be rentals, averaging a relatively small 648 square feet apiece. The site has been vacant for some time, and GF55 Partners is designing.
The hulking remains of Greenpoint Terminal Market once dominated West Street in Greenpoint, after a mysterious 10-alarm fire destroyed much of the former industrial complex in 2006. But the low-slung factories are finally giving way to towers. One developer has filed new building applications for a 19-story residential development at 27 West Street, between Calyer and Quay Streets, a block south of the old Terminal Market.
Financial District-based Zolo Construction & Development Inc. has filed applications for a four-story, seven-unit residential building at 684 Leonard Street, in central Greenpoint, two blocks south of the Greenpoint Avenue stop on the G train. The building will measure 5,000 square feet in total, which works out to units averaging a rental-sized 714 square feet. Murat Simsek’s Nassau County-based engineering service Rocda is the applicant of record, and an existing three-story townhouse must first be demolished.
Greenpoint’s current construction boom will soon yield a forest of new towers along the waterfront, but the neighborhood’s smaller infill development has also been significant. One such project in the latter category is 160 West Street, aka The Gibraltar, which has progressed quickly through the development pipeline, with permits first filed back in September of 2014. Early renderings were revealed by YIMBY in April, followed by a better look in June, and now we have interior images for the building.
Joseph Brunner has acquired a seven-building development assemblage spanning 1050-1066 Manhattan Avenue and 154 Eagle Street, in northern Greenpoint, for $18 million. The site is located seven blocks north of the G train’s Greenpoint Avenue stop, and consists of mostly three-story townhouses as well as a single-story shop. Planned is a mixed-use rental building, and if the inclusionary housing bonus is satisfied, the building could be as large as 74,000 square feet, according to The Real Deal.
