In 2006, there was a 10-alarm fire that destroyed the historic waterside Greenpoint Terminal Market. A few small buildings remained onsite before they were finally demolished in 2017. Now, the site is cleared for development and Greenpoint is about to yield yet another major addition to New York City’s skyline, named Calyer Place, after the neighborhood street. Renderings have been released, revealing a scenic landscaped public esplanade overlooking the Manhattan skyline, along with five mixed-use structures populating the site. M&H Realty LLC is responsible for the development.
The Greenpoint waterfront is looking to get yet another major development. Permits have been filed for a 33-story building at 65 Private Drive, in Brooklyn, New York. The nearest subway station, seven blocks away, is the Greenpoint Avenue station, serviced by the G train. M&H Realty Partners will be responsible for development.
Yet another desolate waterfront lot in Greenpoint is in for a major redevelopment, with applications now filed for 37 West Street, between Oak and Noble streets. SLCE is the architect of record for the project, which will rise 14 floors and 211 feet to its rooftop, indicating generously-sized ceilings for the residences within. There will be 92 units spread out over 87,434 square feet of space, as well as a 3,300 square-foot community facility component. At about 950 square feet apiece, and accounting for the high ceilings, condos would seem very likely. Lipa Friedman of M&H Realty LLC is listed as the developer.
The hulking remains of Greenpoint Terminal Market once dominated West Street in Greenpoint, after a mysterious 10-alarm fire destroyed much of the former industrial complex in 2006. But the low-slung factories are finally giving way to towers. One developer has filed new building applications for a 19-story residential development at 27 West Street, between Calyer and Quay Streets, a block south of the old Terminal Market.
