Exterior work is nearing completion on 35 Commercial Street, a 22-story residential building in the Greenpoint Landing master plan in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. Designed by Handel Architects and developed by Park Tower Group along with Greenpoint Landing Associates, New York City’s Housing Preservation & Development (HPD), and the Housing Development Corporation (HDC), 213-foot-tall structure spans 344,463 square feet and will yield 373 affordable housing units and 7,600 square feet of retail space. Monadnock Construction is the general contractor for the property, which is bound by Bell Slip to the west and Commercial and Clay Streets to the south.
Since our last update in late August, the red brick façade has been fully installed up to the flat parapet. Only the mechanical extension and the strip on the southeastern elevation where the construction elevator is attached remain to be enclosed. Belden Tri-State Building Materials supplied the bricks.
Work has also progressed on the arched entryway along Commercial Street.
Work on the ground floor is nearly finished with only the sidewalks left to be completed. The wraparound scaffolding should be removed by summertime.
The below renderings showcases the completed look of the arched entryway.
Residential amenities at 35 Commercial Street will include indoor and outdoor children’s play areas, a fitness center, an on-site laundry room, bicycle parking, and communal lounge areas. The nearest subway is the G train at the Greenpoint Avenue station to the south. Also nearby is the 7 train at the Vernon Blvd-Jackson Avenue station across the Pulaski Bridge in Hunters Point, Queens.
35 Commercial Street is slated for completion later this fall.
