In the wake of a 2003 rezoning that opened up East River sections of Williamsburg and Greenpoint for housing and recreation, a once-unassuming site at 53 Huron Street has been the home of high drama. A group of investors led by Miriam Chan paid $13 million for the site in 2004; ten years later, Quadrum Global bought it from them for a whopping $45.5 million. A check in 2016 revealed that the project was on hold, but after a flurry of permit filings and approvals, demolition of the pre-existing warehouse is complete and construction is underway.
Morris Adjmi Architects is listed as the designer of record but an official rendering has yet to be released. One earlier rendering from AB Architekten shows a pair of low-slung boxy buildings with large windows and private terraces for many of the units. While this is unlikely the final design, it does resemble what is seen in the approved zoning diagram on file. Previous designs by Tan Architect showed a pair of towering glass edifices propped up on a brick, mostly windowless base.

Permits filed in early 2019 call for 173 units averaging 1,029 square feet and spread between the two 13-story buildings. Also according to permits, it is to be an extremely amenity-rich complex with such offerings as a fitness center with locker rooms and saunas, an indoor pool and deck, lounges, a private dining room, a media room, a children’s playroom, a music practice room, a package room, a roof terrace, a bike room, and on-site parking. The site is several blocks south of the Greenpoint Landing development, where the latest phase officially broke ground last fall. The Greenpoint ferry stop is only one block away, and local mainstays like Paulie Gee’s, The Moonlight Mile, and Brooklyn Label can be found on surrounding blocks.
An offering plan has not yet been filed, but the surrounding area may offer some clues. The site is just up the street from The Greenpoint, a waterfront condominium where the one apartment for sale is a studio for $855K, and closings came in at an average of $1,836 per square foot. At the end of the block, closings at The Gibraltar averaged $1,331 per square foot. According to CityRealty data, the average price of a Greenpoint condominium is $1,164 per square foot.
