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.

Located at 37 Blue Slip, with uninterrupted 180-degree views of the Midtown skyline and Lower Manhattan to the south, One Blue Slip is the first market-rate residential tower to go up in the 22-acre Greenpoint Landing, and leasing has now launched for the building’s 359 units. The news comes from Brookfield Properties, the developers of the project, alongside a joint venture with Park Tower Group, the master planner of the Greenpoint Landing development.
Yesterday, YIMBY brought you an update on the completed 93-unit affordable residential building at 21 Commercial Street, in Greenpoint, built as part of the 10-building Greenpoint Landing mega-development. Another piece of Greenpoint Landing, at 33 Eagle Street, can also be declared as complete, thanks to a photo posted to the YIMBY Forums. There, a seven-story, 98-unit mixed-use structure sits measuring 96,446 square feet. It includes 1,514 square feet of ground-floor retail space and contains 97 affordable residential units (and one unit for the superintendent), which range from studios to two-bedrooms and average 885 square feet apiece. Amenities include a fitness center, laundry facilities, storage for 49 bikes, and a courtyard. Park Tower Group and L+M Development Partners are the developers, and Handel Architects is behind the design. Occupancy is probably imminent.
Construction has been completed on the six-story, 93-unit mixed-use building at 21 Commercial Street, in northern Greenpoint. The update is possible thanks to photos posted to the YIMBY Forums. The latest building permits indicate the project, officially dubbed 7 Bell Slip, encompasses 88,706 square feet. It will include 2,557 square feet of ground-floor retail space, followed by residential units on the floors above, 92 of which will rent at below-market-rates through the affordable housing lottery. The apartments will range from studios to two-bedrooms and should average 887 square feet apiece. Amenities include laundry facilities, storage for 47 bikes, and a fitness center. The project is being built as part of the 10-building, 5,500-unit mixed-use mega-development Greenpoint Landing. Park Tower Group and L+M Development Partners developed 21 Commercial Street, and Handel Architects designed it.
Construction is chugging along on the banks of Newtown Creek in north Brooklyn, where Greenpoint Landing will eventually span 10 acres with 5,000 apartments. YIMBY swung by the megaproject earlier this month and caught up on the progress at three affordable rental buildings: 33 Eagle Street, 21 Commercial Street, and 5 Blue Slip.
