We found this rendering on the fence at 21 Commercial Street, where Greenpoint Landing Associates is building one of two affordable apartment buildings as part of the huge Greenpoint Landing megacomplex on the water in Greenpoint. A similar rendering but with less detail has been published before.
The six-story building will have 93 units spread across 82,476 square feet, along with 2,557 square feet of ground floor commercial space, as we reported in March. The building permits were approved last month. Construction fencing is up, but work hasn’t begun yet. The second affordable project is at 33 Eagle Street, which will be a seven-story building with 98 units.
Handel Architects are designing both, and they look pretty similar. In March, The Real Deal reported both buildings would be affordable. Park Tower Group and L+M Development are codeveloping the buildings. The waterfront megaproject will eventually bring 1,400 affordable units, four acres of open space and a K through 8 public school to northern Greenpoint.
