In 2006, there was a 10-alarm fire that destroyed the historic waterside Greenpoint Terminal Market. A few small buildings remained onsite before they were finally demolished in 2017. Now, the site is cleared for development and Greenpoint is about to yield yet another major addition to New York City’s skyline, named Calyer Place, after the neighborhood street. Renderings have been released, revealing a scenic landscaped public esplanade overlooking the Manhattan skyline, along with five mixed-use structures populating the site. M&H Realty LLC is responsible for the development.
Exterior construction appears to be nearly wrapped up on the five-story, 92-unit mixed-use building under development at 968 60th Street, in western Borough Park. Photos of the construction progress were taken by Pablo Enriquez for the New York Times. Dubbed Hamilton, the 134,367-square-foot building will include 13,848 square feet of ground-floor commercial-retail. The residential units above, which will be rental apartments, should average 931 square feet apiece. They will range from studios to three-bedrooms.
An abandoned factory on the southern edge of Borough Park was demolished last year, and now new rental apartments are rising in its place. YIMBY has a look at the design for the new building at 968 60th Street, near the border with Sunset Park and Dyker Heights.
The hulking remains of Greenpoint Terminal Market once dominated West Street in Greenpoint, after a mysterious 10-alarm fire destroyed much of the former industrial complex in 2006. But the low-slung factories are finally giving way to towers. One developer has filed new building applications for a 19-story residential development at 27 West Street, between Calyer and Quay Streets, a block south of the old Terminal Market.
