Brookfield Property Partners is taking steps towards the construction of a 39-story tower that will be part of the developer’s ongoing Greenpoint Landing megaproject.

The developer filed plans on Friday with the Department of Buildings to construct a 39-story, 340-unit tower at 1 Eagle Street in north Greenpoint. The tower will become part of a three-building section of the project, spanning a full block between West and Franklin Streets. The section will be comprised of two towers and one-low rise building.

The low-rise building, a seven-story affordable housing building located at 33 Eagle Street, on the westernmost corner of the project, was completed in 2016. The building’s 97 units were then opened up to the affordable housing lottery, priced well below market value.

The new luxury rental building at 1 Eagle Street is set to have every high-end amenity a renter could want. The 718,960 square foot tower will have both an indoor and outdoor pool, a fitness center, arcade room, art room, a tenant lounge, bike storage, co-working space, and a tenant terrace with the capacity to hold 573 people. The building will also house 8,616 square feet of retail space.

Brookfield is developing the Greenpoint Landing project with Park Tower Group.

Once completed, Greenpoint Landing will total up to 5,500 residential units, with 1,400 of those being offered as affordable housing. The project will also include a waterfront park, retail space, and a school planned for the former NuHart Plastics site.

Over the summer, One Blue Slip, a 30-story tower with 359 market-rate residential units, was opened and is now leasing.

Brookfield did not respond to request for comment.
