Since last fall’s update, construction has steadily moved forward at Park Tower Group’s Greenpoint Landing mega-development in Greenpoint.

The progress has been concentrated on the first three low-rise buildings, all of which contain only affordable units and are developed in partnership with L+M Development, co-developers of the townhouses at Navy Green. Handel Architects, designers for the 10-building master plan, are also in charge of these first three buildings.

First to begin, 21 Commercial Street has almost wrapped up installation of its exterior wall. The design calls for a predominantly brick facade with black metal accents and industrial style windows.

While much of the focus in Brooklyn’s development boom has been on the recently rising towers downtown, many medium-sized projects are cropping up in neighborhoods across the borough. One such project — going up at 465 Pacific Street in Boerum Hill — will feature an unusual brick and metal facade.
