Five-Story, 13-Unit Residential Project Tops Out at 160 West Street, Greenpoint

Construction has topped out and façade installation is underway on the five-story, 13-unit residential project under development at 160 West Street, located on the corner of Huron Street in Greenpoint. The update is possible thanks to photos posted to the YIMBY Forums. The latest building permits indicate the new building, dubbed the Gibraltar, measures 16,198 square feet in its entirety. Its residential units, condominiums, should average 1,241 square feet apiece, ranging from one- to two-bedrooms. Amenities include an eight-car parking garage and bike storage, and some of the condos include private terraces. Since the site is subject to flooding, the ground floor won’t contain any apartments and the building’s mechanical equipment will be elevated. Saddle Rock Equities is the developer and Eisner Design is behind the architecture. Completion is expected later this year.
