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.
In April, developer Yidel Hirsch filed plans to build a six-story apartment building on the site of a former chemical factory at 215 Freeman Street, on the corner of McGuinness Boulevard in Greenpoint. The Department of Buildings disapproved those plans, but he’s filed new building applications to develop another residential project across the street at 216 Freeman Street.
Urban View Realty has filed applications for a four-story, six-unit residential building at 198 1/2 Kent Street, in Greenpoint, just around the corner to the G train’s Greenpoint Avenue stop. The building will measure 5,000 square feet, which works out to an average unit of 833 square feet. The fourth-floor unit also comes with a 5th floor penthouse. Woody Chen’s Infocus Design & Planning is the applicant of record, and an existing two-story home must first be demolished.
An anonymous LLC has filed applications for a two-story, six-unit residential building at 84 Oak Street, in Greenpoint, four blocks from the G train’s Greenpoint Avenue stop. The building will measure a total 10,000 square feet, although the configuration will be somewhat unique. Two units will be housed in a basement level, with a cellar located underneath, the first floor will have another two units, and two more units will span a mezzanine and floor number two. New Jersey-based Schneider Associates is the applicant of record, and permits have been filed to remove the site’s two-story structure.
Urban View Realty has filed applications for a five-story, 10-unit residential building at 96 Clay Street, in northern Greenpoint, nine blocks north of the G train’s Greenpoint Avenue stop. The building will total 10,000 square feet, which means units will average 1,000 square feet apiece. Woody Chen’s Infocus Design & Planning is the applicant of record, and an existing two-story, two-unit townhouse must first be demolished.
Earlier this year, Brownstoner caught the first glimpse of the boutique condo development at 170-174 West Street in Greenpoint. Now YIMBY has renderings for the six-story project designed by StudiosC Architects, who are headquartered a few blocks away on Greenpoint Avenue.
Northern Greenpoint has construction on every corner, but the biggest new building headed to the formerly quaint waterfront neighborhood is a 39-story tower at 145-155 West Street, once home to the Huxley Envelope factory. Mack Real Estate and Palin Enterprises demolished the large single-story building in January, and now they’re driving piles for the planned 392-foot-tall high rise between Huron and India Streets on the East River. When YIMBY stopped by the site, we found this rendering tacked to the construction fence.
Earlier this year, developer Stellar Management began tearing down five small buildings on McGuinness Boulevard in Greenpoint to make way for a wide six-story apartment building designed by Gene Kaufman.

Yidel Hirsch has filed applications for a four-story, 10-unit residential building at 194-196 Freeman Street, in northern Greenpoint, three blocks north of the Greenpoint Avenue station on the G train. The building will measure 8,985 square feet, which means units will average nearly 900 square feet. An existing three-story mixed-use building must first be demolished, and Julien Flander is the applicant of record.
In early June, YIMBY revealed renderings of Investmates’ planned five-story, four-condo-unit residential building at 78 Freeman Street, in northern Greenpoint, two blocks in from the East River.

International Office of Architects is designing, while Murat Multu Architect is serving as the applicant of record. An existing two-story, two-unit townhouse must first be demolished.
