GREENPOINT – An empty lot on Greenpoint’s main drag will soon be home to a five-story mixed-use building—and now, renderings are out.
Located at 1056 Manhattan Avenue, at the corner of Eagle Street, the building from Bruman Realty will bring 96 new apartments to the neighborhood, along with more than 12,000 square feet of retail, YIMBY reports.
The lot has stood empty after developers knocked down the original one-story building on the site following the sale of the property, which went for $18.5 million in late 2015.
Featuring a modern brick-and-metal facade, the proposed new building will feature large windows for its residents on the upper residential floors. The roof will feature a deck and lounge, while some apartments will have their own terraces.
Under the ground-floor retail, a cellar-level parking garage will fit about 30 cars. A fitness center and laundry facilities will also fit under the street level of the new building.
By changing the former site of a furniture and electronics retailer into a 96-unit residential development, Bruman is definitely upping the density in a neighborhood seeing massive increases in housing.
Waterfront towers are rising above Greenpoint, with many more on the way. Recently, a public park opened along the water as a 30-story residential tower nears completion.
