NEW YORK | Greenpoint Landing | 101m - 122m+ x 10 | 330ft - 400ft+ x 10 | U/C

Plans revived with new designs.







=====================================================================================

Previously:




Woot!

Full rundown:

Quote:
Handel's website gives a great description of the plan, which is said to include 4.2 million square feet of mixed-use development. The project is expected to provide over 4,000 new units of housing in addition to a mix of retail and public parks. With 11 new buildings and 20% of the future housing set aside as affordable, the scale of the project is quite large. Perhaps most exciting is the project's integration with a marina, which could provide part of the new backbone this waterfront neighborhood so badly needs.

I like how one development project in NYC is equivalent to half of San Diego's skyline... (not knocking SD which is a fantastic place, but it's ridiculous/awesome).

The stretch of development from the Williamsburg Bridge to the Queensboro is going to be crazy come 2020.

Latest renderings just released:

This project is literally the size of mid-size American city's skyline.

Indeed. There was some change between these and the last ones, as the scale is now much larger. The aerial provides a great example of the project's scope.

Handel is the architect, FYI. Hopefully they update their websites with more renders soon. NYTimes also said two towers could start next summer, of 30 and 40 floors.

Plans for Greenpoint's 10 Luxury Towers Moving Forward





Quote:
It looks like those ten residential towers will actually be coming to 22 acres of Greenpoint waterfront. Called Greenpoint Landing, the plans have been talked about for nearly a year, and renderings by Handel Architects were released this spring. News that developer Park Tower Group wants to break ground by next summer was buried in a Times article earlier this summer, and now, Greenpointers reports that the tenants occupying the lots in question, mainly the Boardwalk Empire set, are moving out. The luxury development will occupy 22 waterfront acres, bringing 4.2 million square feet of mixed-use buildings with approximately 4,000 apartments, of which 20 percent will be affordable.

Handel Architects' plans call for much more than just ten towers rising 30 to 40 stories high. They include plans for a pedestrian bridge designed by starchitect Santiago Calatrava to connect Greenpoint and Long Island City, a new East River Marina, and a seasonal putting green/ice skating rink. Residents would enjoy a large deck with a swimming pool, hot tub, and barbecue area, and inside amenities would include concierge and valet service, a fitness center and spa, racquetball court, a golf-simulator, children's playroom, and a movie room. Restaurants and public green spaces would be incorporated throughout.

Looks too much like something you would find in Florida or China. But it's still nice.

Nice cluster. It is a small skyline on its own.

Out of scale, out of character, far from transit, completely wrong for this neighborhood. More suited to Jersey City, in size, configuration, and sheer tastelessness.

Greenpoint Landing Gearing Up For Start


http://inhabitat.com/nyc/greenpoint-...pointlanding1/

Quote:
Last week Community Board One posted a notice that representatives of the mayor requested a meeting with the land-use committee to brief them on three important projects coming to Greenpoint. The first, and easily the largest project in store for Greenpoint, is the 5,000-unit Greenpoint Landing, pictured in a rendering above. According to the meeting notice, the developers are working with the city and expect “that the project will certify into ULURP summer 2013.” (The developer previously stated that they hoped to break ground by this summer.)

Revived with changed designs:

Back from the drawing board

Dormant Newtown Creek development awakens in a big way.

Quote:
A slumbering giant of a project is about to reawaken on the banks of Newtown Creek in north Brooklyn. Park Tower Group is set to unveil its latest plans for a huge 22-acre development at the northern tip of Greenpoint at a public meeting Monday.

The plan calls for 5,500 apartments spread among as many as two dozen buildings, including 10 luxury towers of 30 to 40 stories. Planning for the development began more than a decade ago and pre-dates the contentious Williamsburg-Greenpoint rezoning that spawned a building boom and thousands of new apartments. After the 2005 rezoning, Park Tower spent a number of years honing its plan along more than a half-mile of waterfront. But just as the developer was preparing to build, the recession hit. "It's been challenging for anything to occur, but now the market is very strong," said Park Tower Vice President Al Bradshaw.

The developer hopes to break ground on the first tower sometime in December or January. Beginning in June, the plan will have to go through the six-month public-review process. Financing has yet to be secured, although Mr. Bradshaw said he is "in advanced discussions with a number of lenders."

The public review has little to do with the towers, which could be built as of right, thanks to the rezoning, and has more to do with modifications to the original plan. Park Tower will incorporate a city-owned parcel and build as many as 431 affordable-housing units the Bloomberg administration promised to add as part of the rezoning. This is in addition to nearly 1,000 units of affordable housing already planned for the site.

The site must also be re-rezoned because Park Tower has agreed to provide space for a school, which the city would build. The open space also is being reconfigured to better deal with potential storm surges, including raising the public promenade. "This will not only protect our property, but those of our neighbors behind us," Mr. Bradshaw said. Park Tower is also donating $2.5 million to the city to expand the adjacent Newtown Barge Park.

The developer has changed the look of the project. Earlier renderings showed sleek glass towers, while the new designs envision red-brick fašades liberally punctuated with windows reminiscent of the area's old warehouses. Steel awnings hang above the entrances. "It's a nod to the area's industrial history," architect Gary Handel said.

Park Tower also hopes that a bridge designed by Santiago Calatrava to connect Brooklyn and Queens across the Newtown Creek will be included at a later point. The entire project is expected to take between eight and 12 years to complete.
