A new seven-story mixed-use development has topped out in Greenpoint.
Located at 1056 Manhattan Avenue, between Freeman and Eagle streets, it stretches almost the entire length of the Manhattan side of the block. It takes the place of six different buildings, ranging from one to three stories, many of which were formerly occupied by the furniture store J. Josephs & Sons Co.
During a recent visit, scaffolding and netting were up, and most of the construction crew were working on the ground floor spaces.
Said ground floor spaces will have retail, according to building permits. There will be 36 parking spaces in the cellar, along with storage spaces and a recreation room.
The building will have 90 apartments in total. On the Eagle Street side of the building, there is a drop off from seven to three floors.
Fariba Makooi of Fischer Makooi Architect (the former of the pair referring to well-known Brooklyn architect Karl Fischer, who passed away in March) is the applicant of record.
Renderings show a facade of red brick and grey panel siding, with large floor-to-ceiling windows in the street-facing units. Building permits say there will be terraces for all units, although that is not reflected in the rendering.
Joel Weiss of Empire Management is listed as the owner on building permits. He purchased the seven lots in 2015 for a combined $18 million.
The northern part of Greenpoint is becoming a hotbed of residential development, including the 22-acre Greenpoint Landing development site, which is only two blocks away on the waterfront, and the eight-story, block-long OTTO Greenpoint at 211 McGuinness Boulevard.
