Earlier this year, developer Stellar Management began tearing down five small buildings on McGuinness Boulevard in Greenpoint to make way for a wide six-story apartment building designed by Gene Kaufman. Now we have renderings for the project, a mixed-income rental at 211 McGuinness Boulevard, between Calyer Street and Greenpoint Avenue.
Yidel Hirsch has filed applications for a four-story, 10-unit residential building at 194-196 Freeman Street, in northern Greenpoint, three blocks north of the Greenpoint Avenue station on the G train. The building will measure 8,985 square feet, which means units will average nearly 900 square feet. An existing three-story mixed-use building must first be demolished, and Julien Flander is the applicant of record.
In early June, YIMBY revealed renderings of Investmates’ planned five-story, four-condo-unit residential building at 78 Freeman Street, in northern Greenpoint, two blocks in from the East River. Now applications have been filed, and the building will measure 4,959 square feet, just shy of the 5,000 square-foot figure we reported a few weeks ago. International Office of Architects is designing, while Murat Multu Architect is serving as the applicant of record. An existing two-story, two-unit townhouse must first be demolished.
In northern Greenpoint, three mid-rise affordable residential buildings are going up, with 21 Commercial Street, a six-story, 93-unit residential building, the first to top out. In May, foundation work was underway at 33 Eagle Street, where a seven-story, 98-unit building is planned, and now construction is above street level, according to Brownstoner.
Back in April, YIMBY posted the first rendering for 160 West Street, a six-story residential development in the works near the Greenpoint waterfront. Now we have an updated look at the project, sent along by its broker, Ryan Serhant. The building, now dubbed The Gibraltar, is being developed by Saddle Rock Equities, and the architect is Joe Eisner, of Eisner Design.
