A planned 40-story tower at 18 India Street, in Greenpoint, is officially moving forward, new plans filed with the city’s Department of Buildings reveal. YIMBY first reported on the application, which lists Skidmore, Owings & Merrill as the applicant of record, indicating that SOM could be the architect attached on the project.

News of the project first emerged three years ago when developers RedSky Capital and JZ Capital Partners announced their intention to plop a residential tower on India Street. Earlier this year, a rendering appeared for what looked like a dual-tower project—the developer has yet to confirm the veracity of that rendering.

The rendering was accompanied with the speculation that the project would bring between 500 to 700 apartments to Greenpoint, along with 100,000 square feet of retail. The new filings suggest that the retail portion has been done away with, and that the project will now have 470 apartments, some of which will be affordable units. Curbed has reached out to both RedSky Capital and SOM for comment.
