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.
41 Blue Slip
Construction has topped out at 41 Blue Slip, the second building to rise in the Greenpoint Landing master plan. The reinforced concrete structure now stands 40 stories above the waterfront development. Handel Architects is the designer while Park Tower Group and Brookfield Property Partners are its developers. L+M Development Partners is the third developer of the mega project, but was not involved with this building. The project stands to the south of 37 Blue Slip, the first building to be erected at the Greenpoint, Brooklyn construction site. The glass and metal façade is steadily rising on all sides.
The second tower at Greenpoint Landing is on its way to topping off sometime this spring. Addressed at 41 Blue Slip, the building will imminently stand 40 stories atop Greenpoint, on Brooklyn’s East River waterfront. The project is being designed by Handel Architects and developed by both Brookfield Property Partners and Park Tower Group. L+M Development Partners is the third developer of Greenpoint Landing, but is not involved with this particular skyscraper. The site is located just off of Commercial Street behind 5 Blue Slip, and sits about a quarter mile to the north of The Greenpoint, aka 21 India Street.
Earlier this week, YIMBY brought you news, via Brownstoner, of the progress on Greenpoint Landing’s first two affordable residential buildings, and now developer Park Tower Group is getting ready to begin on two high-rise rental towers, which closely resemble YIMBY’s partial reveal of the planned towers at 37 and 41 Blue Slip. Brookfield Property Partners, who acquired a majority stake in the two-tower project for $59.7 million, according to Crain’s, will be co-developing, and two buildings — one 30 stories with 365 units, and another 40 stories with 415 units — are planned. Gothamist has the latest renderings, and construction is expected to begin in the first half of 2016. Handel Architects is designing. Greenpoint Landing, a 5,000-unit mega-development in northern Greenpoint, will include a total of 10 or more buildings.
