Greenpoint Landing is located in one of Brooklyn’s most vibrant neighborhoods, bringing new housing, acres of public open space, a new public school, and local shops along a half-mile stretch of New York City’s East River Waterfront.
Opening its doors in 2018, One Blue Slip established its waterfront location as a neighborhood center and set the visual tone for future projects to come.
Two Blue Slip rises above its sister building with a taller stature, softened in contrast by its lighter facade. Its exterior is unique, while staying true to the design language established by One Blue Slip.
5 Blue Slip is a 100% affordable building sited along Commercial Street, bordering the edge of Newtown Barge Park. The building’s recognizable design features a striking black metal accent stripe cutting through the red brick façade.
7 Bell Slip’s six stories include 93 affordable residences, ground-level retail, and a private, landscaped garden. Oversized casement windows flood the interiors with light, and invoke the industrial style language of historic Greenpoint’s factories and warehouses.
Positioned at the corner of Eagle and West Streets, 33 Eagle consists of 98 affordable units and features three distinct outdoor Garden Rooms filled with plant life and fueled by an integrated stormwater cleansing and storage system.
Site D will consist of a 40-story tower, a 30-story tower, and a third, smaller building located just south of Newtown Barge Park. Its visionaries at OMA describe the buildings’ striking, diagonal-cut design as, “a ziggurat and its inverse,” with zig-zagging faces allowing more sunlight into the open space. The site will include a new 1-acre waterfront esplanade, publicly accessible and designed by James Corner Field Operations.
Consisting of over 400 residential units, The H Site rises 30 stories on the northernmost tip of Greenpoint Landing, filling the space between 1 & 2 Blue Slip and the future Box Street Park. It represents a major step in the development, connecting the public esplanade all the way from Box Street to Dupont Street.
