Over the decades, Greenpoint has evolved from a shipbuilding center to an in-demand residential neighborhood. New development shows no sign of slowing down, and the latest entrant is boutique condominium The Calyer Greenpoint, which rose on the former site of RKO Greenpoint Theatre, a vaudeville house turned movie theater at 171 Calyer Street. Sales on the 21 units have just launched with availabilities that include a one-bedroom with home office for $1,125,000, a two-bedroom for $1,950,000, and three-bedrooms from $2,395,000.
The Calyer Greenpoint took shape on a quiet tree-lined street, albeit one in close proximity to local hot spots. The restaurants lining Greenpoint and Manhattan Avenues can be found in either direction, and transportation options include the G train and Greenpoint ferry. It is well situated half a mile from WNYC Transmitter Park, Bushwick Inlet Park, and McCarren Park, but the building features a common roof deck with grill and skyline views. Additional amenities include a well-appointed lobby, bike storage, a state-of-the-art fitness center, and a children's playroom with a jungle theme.

The surrounding area has cultivated a rich culinary, nightlife, and retail scene in recent years, but The Calyer Greenpoint is located in the heart of the Greenpoint Historic District. As such, the project could not proceed without approval from the Landmarks Preservation Commission (“Landmarks”). The first community board hearing took place in fall 2019; it took a few Landmarks hearings, but the project was ultimately approved with modifications in September 2020.
Landmarks’ objections were not to the loss of the single-story supermarket that replaced the theater; the commission found that this was “not one of the buildings for which the historic district was designated.” Rather, the concern was over how it would relate to its historic context. To that end, the seven-story building’s final design by PKSB Architects uses red brick, brown cast stone, and double-hung windows in a nod to the area’s history. While it is one of the larger buildings on its block, the Landmarks report found that “the presence of a larger building on this site is supported by the historic presence of the theater building, as well as larger buildings across the street.”
