Permits have been filed for a six-story development on two connected lots, 26 Clay Street and 69 Dupont Street, in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. The development is eleven blocks from the Greenpoint Subway Station, serviced by the G train. Nine blocks away is the East River ferry, which connects the Brooklyn waterfront with Midtown and Downtown Manhattan. Yoel Schwimmer is listed as responsible for the applications.
Permits call for a 60-foot tall structure that will yield 400,000 square feet, with 238,600 square feet dedicated to residential use, and 5,650 square feet for commercial retail space. 325 apartments will be created, averaging 734 square feet apiece, indicating rentals. Residents will have access to a fitness center, lounge, spa, library, outdoor terrace, and bicycle storage. 344 parking spaces will be included on site.
ODA will be responsible for the design. Renderings do suggest that more development is expected further along the block, but demolition permits for other lots have not been filed yet.
Demolition permits for the existing structures were filed in August of 2014. Construction is expected to start in six months.
