Let the pile driving begin! Greenpoint Landing starts construction
Greenpoint’s got a new kid on the block and he’s entered the hood with a bang. For anyone who has seen the mounds of excavated dirt, or the felt the head-splitting thunderous claps of wooden piles being driven into the ground at 7 am, knows Greenpoint Landing has officially arrived.
Greenpoint Landing’s construction crew, which quietly set-up shop at the end of Commercial Street in July, are now laying down the foundation at 21 Commercial Street–a low-rise, affordable residential building with approximately 98 units. Phase 1 of the Commercial Street construction will involve digging trenches, along with upgrades and relocation of combined sewage overflow pipes (CSO’s).
What is the deal with all that incessant banging, you ask? Grab a jumbo size box of earplugs and brace yourselves…The pile driving won’t be ending anytime soon. Greenpoint Landing Developers say the foundation phase of the construction is expected to last 3 to 4 months. This phase includes excavation, pile installation, pouring concrete foundations and other construction activities.
Work permits have been approved by the Department of Buildings and the Department of Environmental Protection. Remediation efforts will be overseen by the Mayor’s Office of Environmental Remediation and the State Department of Environmental Conservation.
