Rental Building News and Offers

Amidst the historic buildings of Greenpoint, a residential building boom has taken shape. (217 Franklin Street with Eagle + West in the background - Compass) Amidst the historic buildings of Greenpoint, a residential building boom has taken shape. (217 Franklin Street with Eagle + West in the background - Compass)
During a Landmarks Preservation Commission (“Landmarks”) hearing regarding a project in the Greenpoint Historic District, Commissioner Frederick Bland was of the opinion that the proposed building was more sophisticated than its surroundings, but quickly acknowledged that Greenpoint is changing. Significantly more than five families live there now, as opposed to the area’s population around the time of the Revolutionary War, and the area has cultivated a robust dining, nightlife, and retail scene. The Skyline Drive-In opened in summer 2021, a Jubilee Marketplace grocery store opened in spring 2023, and a bike lane has been proposed to make the notoriously hazardous McGuinness Boulevard more pedestrian-friendly.

The change also comes through in the residential real estate scene. The average price of a Greenpoint condo comes in at $1,348 per square foot, and Greenpoint’s median rent comes to $4,495/month (all figures per CityRealty data and listings). The Greenpoint Landing mega-development accounted for the early part of a local building boomlet, but a significant number of smaller-scale condos and rentals are springing up in the area. We take a look at new buildings currently selling and leasing, as well as future projects shaping the area.

Plans for new housing at 111 Noble Street, a site in the heart of the Greenpoint Historic District date back to July 2017, when permits were filed to construct a ground-up four-story building on the site of a house dating back to 1885; however, preservationists and Landmarks commissioners alike wondered why the old building had to go. To that end, the developer opted instead to expand and alter the existing building; it was approved in February 2018. More recently, the updated building is home to a triplex townhouse unit with a private backyard and a duplex penthouse with private elevator access and a private roof terrace.

Coming Soon
29-Huron-Street-01 Rendering of The Huron (Morris Adjmi Architects)
For this two-towered condo development, the context-sensitive Morris Adjmi Architects drew inspiration from Greenpoint's history for the brick podium and glass and steel towers. However, amenities like a fitness center with locker rooms and saunas, an indoor saltwater pool overlooking the Manhattan skyline, a fully equipped residents' lounge, co-working spaces, a private dining room, a media room, a children’s playroom, an outdoor playground, a music practice room, and a roof terrace with BBQ grills were conceived with today's buyers' needs in mind.

584-Leonard-Street-01 584 Leonard Street rendering (Pliskin Architecture)
In spite of all the new towers rising throughout Greenpoint, boutique construction remains in high demand: 584 Leonard Street will only comprise two expansive units. Each apartment will measure over 3,000 square feet, and renderings show a roof terrace on top of the building. It offers a quiet oasis, optimal privacy, and easy access to Manhattan Avenue dining and the Nassau Avenue G train.

At the end of 2020, permits were approved for a through-block residential building to rise on the former site of a one-story warehouse at 33 Franklin Street.

Bushwick Inlet Park and the East River waterfront are a short distance away.

171-Calyer-Street-01 The Calyer (PKSB Architects)
171 Calyer Street would appear to encapsulate the history of Greenpoint in one site: The Neo-Federal-style building started out as a vaudeville house and became a movie theater, and a Landmarks-approved condominium has now gone up. The red brick facade and rust-colored window frames nod to the area's industrial history, but amenities like an opulent lobby, a state-of-the-art gym, a children's playroom, bike storage, and a roof deck with grills and skyline views were designed to cater to the modern buyer.

68-Commercial-Street-01 68 Commercial Street (StudiosC Architecture)
Work is underway on 68 Commercial Street, a boutique condominium near the Greenpoint waterfront.

Nearby transportation options include the Greenpoint Avenue G train and the Vernon Boulevard-Jackson Avenue 7 train.

Last fall, excavation work began on the new building planned for 30 India Street.

50-Commercial-Street-01 50 Commercial Street (CityRealty)
In the shadow of Tower 77 (see above), a lower-rise residential development is taking shape at 50 Commercial Street.

At the beginning of 2023, permits were filed for a 14-story residential building to rise on a vacant lot at 29 Clay Street. Amenities are set to include on-site parking and bike storage, but the greatest perk may be its central address near Franklin and Manhattan Avenue dining, waterfront retail, and the Greenpoint Avenue G train.

16-Dupont-Street-01 Rendering of 16 Dupont Street (Rockefeller Group)

75-Dupont-Street-01 75 Dupont Street (Madison Realty Capital)
At the beginning of 2023, construction began on the new residential building at 75 Dupont Street following the demolition of the industrial buildings previously on the site, the Harte & Company plastics factory among them. Renderings show a low-rise building with light-hued lower levels and darker masonry on the upper half, and the project will ultimately yield 471 new apartments (143 of which have been designated affordable), 189 on-site parking spaces, and retail space that is rumored to be a supermarket. A new K-8 school was planned across the street from the site, but locals and elected officials alike have objected to the planned school's proximity to the former plastics factory and the chemicals it used.

Completion TBA

1-Java-Street-01 1 Java Street (Lendlease)
Earlier this spring, construction began on 1 Java Street along the Greenpoint waterfront. Renderings depict five interconnected buildings that make a statement in the local skyline, but the project has gained more attention for its planned geothermal system and all-electric infrastructure. These features align with both developer Lendlease's Mission Zero goal and New York City's goal of becoming carbon neutral by 2050.

Completion estimated for 2024

1-Wythe-Avenue-01 1 Wythe Avenue (StudiosC Architecture)
The Brooklyn Brewery has been a Williamsburg mainstay since it opened its doors, but has grown to the point of needing a new home. It found one in Greenpoint's New Greenpoint-Williamsburg Industrial Business Zone, and renderings depict a three-sided building with a red brick facade, floor-to-ceiling windows, and landscaped setbacks. The cellar, first, and fourth floors will be dedicated to light manufacturing use, and the remaining square footage will be office space.

Acme Smoke Fish building Rendering of Acme Smoked Fish's new headquarters (Gensler)
As Greenpoint rises to prominence, some fear that it will come at the expense of the beloved local businesses that put the neighborhood on the map in the first place. That is not the case for the Acme Smoked Fish Factory, which has been a Greenpoint institution for more than 100 years: In May 2021, the City Council voted to approve an amended zoning map that would allow a new, 93,500-square-foot production facility for the company, which has outgrown the space it had occupied since 1954. Eater notes that if the approval hadn't gone through, the company would have had to leave Greenpoint; some locals objected to the look of the new building, but much preferred to have Acme stay.

However, this did not pan out and the site is now on the market.

144-Greenpoint-Avenue-01 Rendering of 144 Greenpoint Avenue (PBDW Architects for Landmarks Preservation Commission)
From 1961 until it closed in 2013, the building at 144 Greenpoint Avenue served as Polonaise Terrace, a banquet hall that enjoyed popularity as a large-scale wedding venue among Greenpoint’s Polish population. When the Brooklyn Night Bazaar took over the space in 2016, they embraced as much of its kitschy aesthetic as possible amidst a renovation. However, its newest owner has a more subdued plan in mind for the space: a four-story commercial building that seeks to incorporate as much of the original structure into the new building as possible.

At a Landmarks hearing in November 2022, the Historic Districts Council described Polonaise Hall as "an unofficial landmark in Greenpoint and a visual anchor of the neighborhood." However, the Victorian Society of New York and many commissioners did not object to the loss of the old building. There were some concerns about the size, height, cornice, and signage of the new one, though; as such, the team had to return to Landmarks in early 2023 with a new plan, and the commissioners signed off on it. Chair Sarah Carroll said, "The proposed design of the new building will reflect the layering of old buildings of various periods and styles with contemporary buildings and additions found throughout the historic district."
