Construction is now wrapping, at least on the exterior, of the six-story, 44-unit residential building under development at 50 Greenpoint Avenue, located on the corner of West Street in Greenpoint. A photo posted to the YIMBY Forums offers a glimpse of the project in its final stages, a stark difference from when YIMBY stopped by in November of 2015. The latest building permits list the project at 51,534 square feet, which means its residential units, condominiums ranging from one- to three-bedrooms, should average 1,171 square feet apiece. Amenities include a 23-car underground garage, a recreation space behind the building, and “indoor recreation rooms” on the ground floor. Oren Evenhar is the developer and Karl Fischer’s SoHo-based firm is behind the architecture. A sales office will open in September.
Construction has been completed on the six-story, 93-unit mixed-use building at 21 Commercial Street, in northern Greenpoint. The update is possible thanks to photos posted to the YIMBY Forums. The latest building permits indicate the project, officially dubbed 7 Bell Slip, encompasses 88,706 square feet. It will include 2,557 square feet of ground-floor retail space, followed by residential units on the floors above, 92 of which will rent at below-market-rates through the affordable housing lottery. The apartments will range from studios to two-bedrooms and should average 887 square feet apiece. Amenities include laundry facilities, storage for 47 bikes, and a fitness center. The project is being built as part of the 10-building, 5,500-unit mixed-use mega-development Greenpoint Landing. Park Tower Group and L+M Development Partners developed 21 Commercial Street, and Handel Architects designed it.
Construction has topped out and façade installation is underway on the five-story, 13-unit residential project under development at 160 West Street, located on the corner of Huron Street in Greenpoint. The update is possible thanks to photos posted to the YIMBY Forums. The latest building permits indicate the new building, dubbed the Gibraltar, measures 16,198 square feet in its entirety. Its residential units, condominiums, should average 1,241 square feet apiece, ranging from one- to two-bedrooms. Amenities include an eight-car parking garage and bike storage, and some of the condos include private terraces. Since the site is subject to flooding, the ground floor won’t contain any apartments and the building’s mechanical equipment will be elevated. Saddle Rock Equities is the developer and Eisner Design is behind the architecture. Completion is expected later this year.
Since standing four stories in height back in May, the 39-story, 640-unit mixed-use complex under development at 10 Huron Street and 19 India Street, in Greenpoint, has grown 12 stories, as seen in photos taken earlier this month by NY Construction Photography. The main tower will eventually climb to 392 feet above street level, with the entire complex to measure 716,982 square feet. There will be 19,324 square feet of ground-floor retail and 3,802 square feet of medical offices. The floors above will host the residential units, averaging 894 square feet apiece, of which 20 percent (128 units) will rent at below-market rates through the affordable housing lottery. The residential amenities are listed in YIMBY’s previous update. Mack Real Estate Group and Palin Enterprises are the developers. Ismael Leyva Architects is behind the design and completion is expected by 2018.
