For months, The Greenpoint, a new high-rise under construction along the East River, has had work lights shining. Now, the tower, located at 21 India Street (a.k.a. 10 Huron Street), is receiving its façade.
YIMBY last provided an update on the project in October, when a new rendering was made available, but the building had yet to top out. Now, façade installation has been captured by prolific construction chronicler Tectonic. Mack Real Estate Group and Palin Enterprises are developing the project. Ismael Leyva Architects is responsible for the design.
When complete the 39-story, 392-foot-tall building will have 500 residential units, a mix of rental apartments and condominiums. Spread across 454,502 square feet, they should average just over 900 square feet apiece.
The Schedule A shows residences starting on the second floor, with 15 units, and continuing with 27 on the third floor, 32 each on the fourth and fifth floors, and 14 each on the sixth through ninth floors. There will be 12 units each on the 10th through 31st floors, 10 each on floors 32 through 36, and eight each on floors 37 through 39. Of course, the building is marketed as a 40-story building, so every floor after 12 probably needs to be counted as one higher.
The building will also have 8,678 square feet of commercial space, including four retail spaces on the first floor. In addition, there will be 3,802 square feet of community facility space for an urgent care center.
According to the latest new building permit, the project will include space for 250 bicycles and 257 automobile parking spaces. There will also be a children’s play room, a library/business center, and a pool. The Schedule A doesn’t specify the pool’s location, but it will probably be above the parking.
The site is located between West Street and the East River, making the Greenpoint Avenue station on the G train the closest subway stop. Completion is expected in 2018.
