The first of Greenpoint Landing’s market-rate towers has now topped out, new construction site photos by Field Condition have revealed. Located at 37 Blue Slip, the 30-story building will eventually bring 373 apartments to the neighborhood. Work on a second market-rate tower on an adjacent site is also underway.
Located on the northern tip of Greenpoint, the 22-acre megaproject is a collaboration between the Park Tower Group, L+M Development (the three affordable buildings) and Brookfield Properties. Eventually, the development will see the creation of 5,500 apartments spread out between 11 buildings. Handel Architects designed the master plan for the megaproject.
The three affordable buildings—at 5 Blue Slip, 21 Commercial Street, and 33 Eagle Street—are all either nearing completion or are already complete. Of the total 5,500 apartments, 1,400 apartments will be permanently affordable.
Aside from the apartment buildings, this megaproject will also include a massive waterfront park designed by James Corner Field Operations, and a new K-8 school, which will be located at the intersection of Franklin and Dupont Streets.
