Leasing has launched at The West, a new residential building located at 144 West Street near the East River waterfront in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. The seven-story boutique structure is designed by GF55 Partners and developed by Caspi Development and Barone Management. Corcoran New Development is the exclusive leasing agent.
144 West Street
At the corner of West and India Streets in Greenpoint, two starkly different residential developments are about to rise. On the western side of the block, along the East River, two developers have demolished an old envelope factory to make way for a 40-story residential tower. And YIMBY has the first look at the much more modest five-story rental building planned for 144 West Street, on the eastern side of the block.
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.
