A Building Headed For Greenpoint's Box St. Looks Like... A Box
Hana R. Alberts reports for Curbed. When we learned Issac & Stern was designing a 50-unit residential building on Box Street in Greenpoint, we added, "[w]hich might actually be the perfect street for one of their buildings, name-wise." So that was prescient. BuzzBuzzHome spotted the rendering above on the architects' site, and yup, it's undeniably boxy. At least the design jives with the industrial character of the area and doesn't veer into Hot Karl territory. It will total about 40,000 square feet and rise to six stories, and according to DOB records, will house ten apartments per floor, and count among its amenities bike parking and recreational roof space. The developer is Waterbridge Capital LLC, which bought the lot for $1 million in April 2013.
