The glass facade is continuing its climb at Two Blue Slip, aka 41 Blue Slip , in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, the second tower to rise in the Greenpoint Landing master plan. The topped-out reinforced concrete structure, which stands 40 stories tall above the waterfront, is designed by Handel Architects and co-developed by Park Tower Group and Brookfield Property Partners. L+M Development Partners is the third developer of Greenpoint Landing, but not for this particular tower. 41 Blue Slip stands taller than its adjacent residential sibling One Blue Slip, aka 37 Blue Slip, the first to be erected at the waterfront site.
New photos from Tectonic show the envelope of the superstructure reaching higher toward the elongated cylindrical crown.
Two Blue Slip will yield more than 400 apartments. Greenpoint Landing is expected to deliver a total of 5,500 units, of which about 1,400 will be dedicated to affordable housing. Among the master plan will also be a new K-8 public school and a James Corner Field Operations-designed waterfront park. The other eight towers, which have yet to begin construction, will also rise along the East River and provide panoramic views of the Midtown skyline and the setting sun behind the rising Manhattan cityscape. Greenpoint Landing will line the waterfront of the upper corner of Brooklyn and fill in the gap between Long Island City and the emerging buildings by the Williamsburg Bridge.
YIMBY is also reporting that leasing at Two Blue Slip is expected to begin in January 2020.
Completion of Two Blue Slip is most likely going to happen next year.
