The development of North Brooklyn just keeps on keepin' on: The Real Deal reports that Halcyon Management filed permits with the DOB on Monday to build a 19-story tower at 27 West Street. The lot at the end of Calyer Street is currently home to a warehouse, but Halcyon's plan would turn it into a mixed-use tower, with nearly 6,000 square feet of ground-floor commercial space. No word yet on how tall the building would be, but the permit does have a spot checked off for "Low Income Housing (Inclusionary Housing)," indicating that per the city's zoning rules, there may be some affordable housing coming.
Greenpoint in particular is experiencing something of a surge in development: Just a few months ago, a ceremonial groundbreaking happened on Greenpoint Landing, a megaproject that will add ten new buildings and 5,500 new apartments (1,400 of which will be affordable!) to the neighborhood. Meanwhile, a series of controversially tall buildings on Commercial Street is still in development. While it's unlikely that the West Street development will reach those heights, it remains to be seen whether it will generate the same fuss.
