The 30 and 40-storey towers lean into and away from one another, making the most of a small 11,000 sq ft floorplate. OMA describes them as “a ziggurat and its inverse”, with terraces and overhangs that create the appearance of a single block taken apart.
Echoing Greenpoint’s origins as a neighborhood of family farms, two levels of green space open to the waterfront. Altogether, the project contains 30,000 sq ft of public space and 30% of its apartments are affordable.
