Consolidated Trucking Captured endering posted on construction fence
Halcyon Management Group, led by Yoel Sabel, has been quietly preparing a swath of the Greenpoint waterfront for a multi-tower scheme to yield hundreds of new apartments. Permit filings for three residential buildings have trickled in over the years and include a 19-floor, 234-unit tower at 29 West Street; a 14-floor, 92-unit tower at 37 West Street; and most recently, a 33-floor, 410-unit tower at 65 Private Drive.
The sprawling site was formerly occupied by Consolidated Freight, a national freight forwarding company that declared bankruptcy in August 2002. The property is bound by Quay Street, Oak Street, West Street and the East River. It is immediately south of the former Greenpoint Terminal Market, whose fiery demise has spawned another set of towering ambitions; and is directly north of the Bushwick Inlet which is slated to be surrounded by the 28-acre Bushwick Inlet Park.

A recent swing by Halcyon’s site shows the first rendering of the project has been posted on the construction fence. Illustrated are two 400-foot towers overlooking the East River, with three smaller buildings further inland. SLCE is listed as the architect of record for the three buildings filed thus far. Additional renderings published by the planning gurus at Cooper Robertson provide a closer look at typical floor layouts and fenestration design concepts.
Cooper Robertson explains they are leading the design development of the exterior envelope of all four planned buildings. Per the drawings, each tower will sport a distinct animated façade and apartments throughout will have balconies or terraces. They say their approach “integrates brick elements relating to the adjacent historic neighborhood with a contemporary glazed double-height window-wall expression.“ The firm also notes that foundation construction is underway on the first two buildings and photos from earlier this week show arrays of piles have been driven.

As stipulated by the Williamsburg-Greenpoint waterfront rezoning that was approved in 2005, a public esplanade park will run the East River length of the site. With flooding being a serious concern, Cooper Robertson is embedding flood resiliency measures such as raising the residential ground floors above the flood level and using the open space configuration and plantings to mitigate flood impacts.
The scheme will harvest a mixture of affordable and market-rate housing. This past December, Curbed reported that Halcyon has submitted an application to provide 222 privately-financed voluntary inclusionary housing. 89 of the units are proposed to earmarked for low-income households and 132 units are to be affordable to middle-income households, says Curbed. It is not known if or how many units will be for-sale apartments.
