One Blue Slip, Greenpoint Landing

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

One Blue Slip is defined by a series of saw-toothed bay windows that angle toward the Manhattan skyline.

One Blue Slip is the newest residential building at Greenpoint Landing and includes 349 rental units in a 30-story tower. The tower is rectangular in form, and serrated along the wide north and south faces in order to create views and give depth to the facades. The design is created by the articulations of the building’s massing, the zigzag windows which emerge from a series of tall, rhythmic brick piers. Divided-light windows in painted black metal give the building an industrial feel, while redbrick masonry piers split the glass systems up and sharpen the look of the serrations. Capping the tower proper is a glassy angular penthouse.

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.
