Bulletin Image - Brooklyn Waterfront will cherish OMA – Designed Greenpoint Landing Towers

Almost 18 months after kicking off in November 2019, two residential towers of the OMA-designed Greenpoint Landing development in Brooklyn have structurally topped out with the north tower at 300 feet (91 meters) and the south tower at 400 feet (122 meters).

The project, first unveiled by the developers Brookfield Properties and Park Tower Group in March 2019, seeks to serve as a catalyst in transforming the waterfront from a post-industrial edge to an accessible and vibrant part of the neighborhood.

It has been designed with a pair of residential towers that simultaneously lean into and away from one another. In conjunction with a lower seven-story building, the two towers are situated along a half-mile of the East River waterfront.

“These towers, our first in Brooklyn, have reached an important milestone made possible by the perseverance of Brookfield, Park Tower Group, BBB, and the entire construction and design team during an unprecedented time,” Jason Long, OMA Partner-in-Charge, commented on the recent milestone. “It is exciting to see our collective efforts take shape on Greenpoint’s dynamic skyline.”

OMA has defined the towers as being framed by two lower volumes on the opposite corners of the block, creating a continuous edge around the block. This is very different from being lifted on a monolithic base or standing in isolation.
