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.

Toward the end of last spring, YIMBY brought you a construction update on the first two affordable housing components for the 5,500-unit Greenpoint Landing megaproject, in northern Greenpoint along the waterfront. At the time, foundation work was underway at 33 Eagle Street, where a seven-story, 98-unit residential building is planned, and now the building appears to have topped out, per Brownstoner.
Last summer, Greenpointers said goodbye to a sludge tank at Eagle and West Streets, and now part of the affordable housing for Greenpoint Landing is rising in its place at 33 Eagle Street and 21 Commercial Street.
