Windows Going in at 50-50 Building on Manhattan Avenue in Greenpoint


The seven-story, 210-unit development going up at the corner of Manhattan and Clay Streets in Greenpoint is getting windows and a brick facade. Construction began last spring on the building at 1133 Manhattan Avenue, which will be half market rate and half affordable housing.

Apartments will be a mix of studios, one- and two-bedrooms, with affordable rents ranging from $494 for a studio to $2,405 for a two-bedroom. Building amenities include 122 parking spaces, 112 bike storage spots, ground floor retail and offices, an exercise room, a lounge and a roof deck.

David Naqami of Perkins Eastman is designing the project, and Domain Companies is the developer. The building’s teaser site claims apartments will be ready by fall 2014.

There’s a ton of development going on nearby: The site is only a block away from the two controversial developments at 77 Commercial Street and Greenpoint Landing, and down the street from a huge former plastics factory where a developer plans 400 apartments.
