Eagle + West
Cantilevered Tower Project Completes in Greenpoint
General contractor, New Line Structures, has finished constructing a pair of cantilevered towers, located at 227 West Street and 27 Eagle Street in Greenpoint, Brooklyn.
Known as Eagle + West, the uniquely shaped structures were developed by Brookfield Properties, and Park Tower Group as part of the multi-building Greenpoint Landing Development.
OMA is the firm behind the eye-catching design, and Beyer Blinder Belle is listed as the architect of record. This design certainly works as intended because the towers seem to mimic each other's setbacks to create what looks like two separated puzzle pieces.
The shorter tower is 30-stories, and around 300 feet tall, while the taller, cantilevered tower, is 40-stories and close to 400 feet tall. Combined, they contain 745 residences, with 224 affordable units on offer. Units will be available in various sizes, ranging from studios to three-bedroom configurations.
Residents will have access to roughly 42,000 square feet of tenant amenities, including a fitness center and a private pool. In addition to residential space and amenities, the ground floor will contain around 8,600 square feet of retail space.
The project sits at the mouth of Newton Creek and looks across at the Hunters Point South development to the north. It will also provide residents with fantastic views of the Manhattan skyline across the East River to the west.
