It’s been a big week for Greenpoint. Between the news that its oldest Polish Bakery, New Warsaw Bakery Co., is moving out of their primo location and the forthcoming, McGolrick Park-adjacent boutique hotel, Henry Norman, the neighborhood’s rapid transformation is becoming increasingly obvious.
But today, we came across a real Greenpoint real estate kicker: the up-and-coming waterfront Greenpoint Landing project may soon sit right next to three more residential towers.
According to The Real Deal, just this Monday, an as-yet-unnamed buyer purchased a site at 49 Dupont Street, which sits right outside the Greenpoint Playground. The land consists of 10 industrial buildings, boasting 260,911 square feet of space between them. Apparently, if affordable housing bonuses are factoring in, that number could reach 360,000 square feet.
Here are the address of the buildings:
- 2-36 Clay Street
- 280 Franklin Street
- 49-93 Dupont Street
If developed into the proposed towers, the buildings would join the massive Greenpoint Landing project, which had its first building permits filed back in early March. Between the Landing and 49 Dupont, there would be–wait for it–thirteen towers in that corner of Greenpoint alone.
At the moment, it’s unclear how much the buyers paid for the parcel of land, but whatever it was, we’re sure they’ll recoup their investment and then some.
