It may be forever before people can actually move into Greenpoint's Pencil Factory condos on West Street, which we like to call Greenpoint's New Pencil, but the development has already acquired a sign and a placeholder website. There's not much on the site, but it does reveal the price range for which the new apartments will be selling. They will start at $400,000 and go to $1M+, which makes for a pretty freaking expensive pencil. Work on the building, so far, doesn't lead one to believe that it will look like the radical remake that was in the early renderings. The buildings aren't part of the Eberhard Faber Historic District.
