One Blue Slip, Greenpoint Landing

Client Brookfield Properties, Park Tower Group
Location New York City, NY
Status Completed in 2018

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

Located on 22-acres of waterfront in Brooklyn, Greenpoint Landing transformed this formerly industrial area into a new multi-building development. The plan reestablished 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.

One Blue Slip opened in 2018 and includes 349 rental units in a 30-story tower. Amenities include a game room, media room, bar, lounge, playroom, co-working space, fitness center with yoga room, and a 7,000 sq.ft. exterior deck with an outdoor kitchen. Parking is included within a screened enclosure.

One Blue Slip 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.

One Blue Slip is LEED Silver.

We designed the units at One Blue Slip to reflect the light of the adjacent East River.

The adjacent Two Blue Slip uses the same material palette in a tower anchored by a more curvilinear form.
