For months now, a new high-rise under construction in Brooklyn has had its work lights shining along the East River. Now, that building, located at 21 India Street (a.k.a. 10 Huron Street) and dubbed The Greenpoint, is receiving its façade.

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.
Construction has topped out on the 16-story, 522-unit mixed-use building under development at 325 Kent Avenue, located between South 3rd and 4th streets in western Williamsburg. The building’s roof stands 170 feet above street level, although the additional height from the bulkhead isn’t specified in documents. The structure measures 401,246 square feet. There will be 9,378 square feet of retail on parts of the ground and second floors. The residential units should average 712 square feet and twenty percent (105 units) will rent at below market rates through the housing lottery. The project is the first building to top out within the five-building Domino Sugar Refinery mega-development. Two Trees Management Company is the developer. SHoP Architects is the design architect and Ismael Leyva Architects is the executive architect. Completion is anticipated next year.
A 33-story, 179-unit mixed-use building has reached its peak at 520 West 30th Street. Construction officially topped off on August 18th, according to a spokesperson for the developer, Related Companies. Photos posted to the YIMBY forums by JC_Heights and Tectonic show that structure’s frame is being filled out and installation of the glassy facade appears about halfway complete.
The Lower East Side is in the midst of a new era of transformation. The Streit’s Matzo Factory has moved, construction of Essex Crossing is humming along, a neighborhood-wide beautification project should reach its goal this summer, and the Lowline is moving forward. The Houston Street corner opposite an iconic deli is also getting a new neighbor, and now there’s a new look at that project.
