Greenpoint’s tallest building (for now) has reached its pinnacle at nearly 400 feet, also making it one of Brooklyn’s tallest buildings. Named after the neighborhood it’s in, The Greenpoint, is collaboration between Mack Real Estate Group, Palin Enterprises, and Urban Development Partners.

The massive, 40-story development is split up into condos and rentals with the lower portion of building made up of the rentals, and the condos beginning on the 28th floor. In all, there will be 95 condos and 368 rentals, though not all the rentals are located in this 40-story skyscraper.

287 rentals will be found below the 28th floor, but the rest will be part of a five-story building adjacent to the main tower, and connected via a large resident’s courtyard.

Located at 21 India Street, the Ismael Levya Architects-designed building will feature apartments that range in size from studios to three-bedrooms. The shorter building however will feature studio through two-bedrooms.

The waterfront tower will of course have great views of Manhattan, but it is also located less than a block away from an East River Ferry terminal, which, come this summer will be integrated into the Citywide Ferry service.

Aside from the residences, this development has 12,000 square feet of open space, and 30,000 square feet of amenities—though we’re still waiting to hear what those amenities will be.

This long-in-the-works development got a boost when the original developer, Palin Enterprises teamed up with Mack Real Estate to move the project forward. They’ve since brought on another developer, and last fall we got the first rendering for the project.

Sales are expected to get underway later this year, and the project will wrap construction sometime in the spring next year.

Nearby the Greenpoint Landing megaproject is also moving along at a rapid clip with two of the affordable buildings there now complete.
