1 Bell Slip, Greenpoint Landing

Client Brookfield Properties, Park Tower Group
Location New York City, NY
Status Under Construction

1 Bell Slip complements the existing architecture at Greenpoint Landing with a lighter material palette.

Located on 22-acres of waterfront in Brooklyn, Greenpoint Landing is transforming this formerly industrial area into a new multi-building development. The plan reestablishes the neighborhood’s waterfront connection through the creation of new streets, new housing, new waterfront parks, and a new public school, all designed to integrate into Greenpoint’s already thriving, diverse community.

1 Bell Slip is the newest residential tower to rise in the development, and consists of 414 rental units, 124 of which are designated affordable. Amenities include a co-work / conference work area; lounge; fitness studios, yoga & exercise rooms; kid’s play room; dog wash room; and two exterior terraces and pool deck totaling about 20,700 SF. The 30-story tower and podium have been sited to maintain view corridors to the waterfront, while offering the building’s residents spectacular views of the Manhattan skyline.

1 Bell Slip maintains the manufacturing heritage of its context, but with a lighter palette than the previous buildings at Greenpoint Landing. Two smaller volumes frame a central larger one, and are expressed in a skin composed of a double-story gridded brick facade in a blend of three brick colors. Atop each of these two volumes is a 4-story recessed penthouse, clad in darker window wall. The larger central volume is composed of an articulated window-wall, in a two-story grid pattern with vertical extruded metal elements and two different slab cover profiles, alternating on every other floor.
