Brooklyn’s waterfront is booming, and today YIMBY has a fresh rendering of one tower coming to the northern end, at 21 India Street, in Greenpoint. The site had previously gone by the address 10 Huron Street, and is currently sprouting a 39-story and 392-foot-tall tower, aptly dubbed The Greenpoint, which will contain apartments on its lower floors and condominiums up above.
145 West Street
In August of 2015, YIMBY revealed new renderings of the 39-story, 640-unit mixed-use project planned at 10 Huron Street and 19 India Street (a.k.a. 145-155 West Street), in Greenpoint, located five blocks from the Greenpoint Avenue stop on the G train. Now the tower portion, at 10 Huron, is four stories above street level, while the foundation is complete where the six-story portion will go at 19 India, as seen in photos by NyConstructionPhoto. The entire complex will encompass 716,982 square feet. Across both buildings, there will be a total of 19,324 square feet of ground-floor retail space, in addition to a 3,802-square-foot medical office. The residential units should average 894 square feet apiece, of which 128 will be rented at below-market rates through the housing lottery.
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.
