Happy Friday, Greenpoint! It’s a whole new world, or, at least, it’s a whole new development… The former site of the Greenpoint Terminal Market, at 27-41 West Street, has been cleared for development, and renderings have been released for a suite of 5 buildings collectively known as Calyer Place, that will add over 700 apartments to the area.
At the same time, Greenpoint Landing has released new renderings for its first market-rate rental building, which will begin leasing at the end of the summer.
Speaking of additions, Citi Bike will add 2,500 docking stations between Williamsburg and Manhattan, and 1,250 new bikes system-wide, to help contend with L-Pocalypse.
But, not everything in North Brooklyn was about large-scale development and infrastructure. On a smaller scale, Florence and the Machine played a small secret set in Greenpoint on Sunday.
