Partners Brookfield Properties and Park Tower Group have announced the next large phase of development at Greenpoint Landing. The centerpiece will be two residential towers designed by OMA. One acre of public waterfront space designed by James Corner Field Operations will surround the mixed-income housing which will also include another new seven-story building. Thirty percent of the 745 units will be affordable housing. This project will also result in further expansion of Greenpoint’s waterfront esplanade. Marmol Radziner is the interior designer while Beyer Blinder Belle is the executive architect and interior designer.
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.
Shadowed by the high-rise buildings surrounding Zuccotti Park, a sculptural rose has been permanently installed in the heart of Lower Manhattan. Titled “Rose III,” the 26-foot-tall floral structure, was created by German artist Isa Genzken and donated to Brookfield Property Partners by Lonti Ebers.
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.
