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. Now we have renderings for the project, a mixed-income rental at 211 McGuinness Boulevard, between Calyer Street and Greenpoint Avenue.
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. Now applications have been filed, and the building will measure 4,959 square feet, just shy of the 5,000 square-foot figure we reported a few weeks ago. 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.
In northern Greenpoint, three mid-rise affordable residential buildings are going up, with 21 Commercial Street, a six-story, 93-unit residential building, the first to top out. In May, foundation work was underway at 33 Eagle Street, where a seven-story, 98-unit building is planned, and now construction is above street level, according to Brownstoner.
Back in April, YIMBY posted the first rendering for 160 West Street, a six-story residential development in the works near the Greenpoint waterfront. Now we have an updated look at the project, sent along by its broker, Ryan Serhant. The building, now dubbed The Gibraltar, is being developed by Saddle Rock Equities, and the architect is Joe Eisner, of Eisner Design.
Izhak Djmemal has filed applications for a four-story, eight-unit residential building at 38 Broome Street, in southern Greenpoint.

Woody Chen’s InFocus is the applicant of record, and an existing two-story, three-unit townhouse must first be demolished.
Property owner Yidel Hirsch has filed applications for a four-story, 20-unit residential building spanning the lots of 193-197 Freeman Street, six blocks north of the Greenpoint Avenue stop on the G train. The building will measure 20,000 square feet, which means units will average 750 square feet each. Julien Flander is the applicant of record, and a single-story warehouse must first be demolished.
Developer Investmates Real Estate is building townhouses in South Williamsburg, rentals on Grand Street, and now condos in Greenpoint.

Last summer, Greenpointers said goodbye to a sludge tank at Eagle and West Streets, and now part of the affordable housing for Greenpoint Landing is rising in its place at 33 Eagle Street and 21 Commercial Street.
