Quadrum Global filed plans this week with the Dept. of Buildings for a 14-story, 150-foot tall residential building at 53 Huron St. (also known as 161 West St.) with 173 units spanning 178,000 square feet.
The development includes 86 enclosed parking spaces and would span 278,000 square feet at West Street between Huron and Green streets. The rendering envisions a yacht-friendly future for the building on the Greenpoint waterfront, which would neighbor the 40-story tower ‘The Greenpoint.”
The London-based private equity firm which is also a partner in Long Island City developments ALTA LIC and 45-40 Vernon Blvd, purchased the site from Miriam Chan in 2014 for $45.5 million according to The Real Deal.
Morris Adjmi Architects is the lead project designer according to 6sqsft. The team is also behind the Wythe Hotel in Williamsburg and many modern Manhattan towers such as 30 East 31st Street.
“The Greenpoint” 40 story lux condo/rental bldg. is affectionally called the Tower of Babel by the locals.
Just what i’ve always said Greenpoint needed more of….no, not affordable housing, MORE YACHTS!
this rendering is so weird there is a huge skyscraper already right next to it not a park…do they think its invisible….
This is so gross!!!! just what Greenpoint needs… more misogynistic drunk fratty finance bros wearing salmon shorts and stinky boat shoes ruining whats left of this haven’s neighborhood culture.
