Greenpoint’s current construction boom will soon yield a forest of new towers along the waterfront, but the neighborhood’s smaller infill development has also been significant. One such project in the latter category is 160 West Street, aka The Gibraltar, which has progressed quickly through the development pipeline, with permits first filed back in September of 2014. Early renderings were revealed by YIMBY in April, followed by a better look in June, and now we have interior images for the building.
Joseph Brunner has acquired a seven-building development assemblage spanning 1050-1066 Manhattan Avenue and 154 Eagle Street, in northern Greenpoint, for $18 million. The site is located seven blocks north of the G train’s Greenpoint Avenue stop, and consists of mostly three-story townhouses as well as a single-story shop. Planned is a mixed-use rental building, and if the inclusionary housing bonus is satisfied, the building could be as large as 74,000 square feet, according to The Real Deal.
In April, developer Yidel Hirsch filed plans to build a six-story apartment building on the site of a former chemical factory at 215 Freeman Street, on the corner of McGuinness Boulevard in Greenpoint. The Department of Buildings disapproved those plans, but he’s filed new building applications to develop another residential project across the street at 216 Freeman Street.
Urban View Realty has filed applications for a four-story, six-unit residential building at 198 1/2 Kent Street, in Greenpoint, just around the corner to the G train’s Greenpoint Avenue stop. The building will measure 5,000 square feet, which works out to an average unit of 833 square feet. The fourth-floor unit also comes with a 5th floor penthouse. Woody Chen’s Infocus Design & Planning is the applicant of record, and an existing two-story home must first be demolished.
An anonymous LLC has filed applications for a two-story, six-unit residential building at 84 Oak Street, in Greenpoint, four blocks from the G train’s Greenpoint Avenue stop. The building will measure a total 10,000 square feet, although the configuration will be somewhat unique. Two units will be housed in a basement level, with a cellar located underneath, the first floor will have another two units, and two more units will span a mezzanine and floor number two. New Jersey-based Schneider Associates is the applicant of record, and permits have been filed to remove the site’s two-story structure.
