Applications for a new 31-story residential building at 1 Bell Slip in Greenpoint, Brooklyn were filed this week. Located at the north end of Greenpoint, the proposed tower is bordered by Newtown Creek on one end and Commercial Street on the other. The closest subway station, Greenpoint Avenue, is half a mile south on Manhattan Avenue, and is serviced by the G train. Brookfield is listed as the owner behind the applications. This is one of four residential components Brookfield is developing with partner Park Tower Group at Greenpoint Landing, a 22-acre master-planned development site on the Brooklyn waterfront that includes 1 Blue Slip.
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.
Construction has topped out and is quickly wrapping up on the six-story, 102-unit mixed-use building under development at 5 Blue Slip as part of the Greenpoint Landing mega-development, in northern Greenpoint. All of the building’s apartments will rent at below-market rates through the affordable housing lottery; applications for them have just launched.
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.
