A new international supermarket and grocery store recently opened its doors at Greenpoint Landing, an expanding residential complex located on the shores of north Brooklyn. Known as Riverside Market, the new 24-hour retail store will occupy the lower levels of 7 Bell Slip between Newtown Creek and the East River.
The 1,500-square-foot market is open to both the public and Greenpoint Landing residents and offers a mix of on-site, pick-up, and delivery services for all demographics of the surrounding community.
“As a center of activity in the neighborhood, Greenpoint Landing is the perfect location for Riverside Market,” said Bejad Musleh, one of the owners of Riverside Market. “I am looking forward to providing this vibrant community with a safe and comfortable space to get all the high-quality essentials.”
7 Bell Slip was the first residential building to be completed within the 22-acre Greenpoint Landing development. The six-story building contains 93 affordable residential units, a total of 2,500 square feet, and a private landscaped garden.
Designed to match 7 Bell Slip, the interiors of the market include a wood-paneled ceiling, gallery-style track lighting, and dark steel fixtures. Riverside Market also joins Eleva Coffee, a new waterfront café within the residential complex.
When complete, Greenpoint Landing will include up to 5,500 residential units, 1,400 of which are affordable housing. Additional components will include a new public school and four acres of public open space.
