New permits were filed this month for a 14-story development on the Greenpoint waterfront, a residential project 6sqft first reported on over two years ago. According to the documents filed with the city’s Department of Buildings, 173 units are planned for the Brooklyn development at 53 Huron Street, which faces the East River and stretches a block to West Street (h/t YIMBY).

Morris Adjmi Architects is listed as leading the project’s design, which, as previous renderings show, appears to feature two glassy towers. The most recent renderings were first uncovered in 2016, so the design will most likely be modified.

In total, the 150-foot-tall complex will measure just over 278,000 square feet, with 178,000 square feet planned for residential units. The permit also lists 86 enclosed parking spaces.

Records indicate the property, which also has the address 161 West Street, is owned by private investment company Quadrum Global, who acquired it in July 2014 for over $45 million, according to the Real Deal. The company is also involved with two nearby Long Island City properties: ALTA LIC and 45-40 Vernon Boulevard.

The 14-story building would sit one block north of Greenpoint’s current tallest tower, The Greenpoint on India Street. Designed by Ismael Leyva Architects, the 40-story complex spans an entire block between India and Huron Streets. Its lower 27 floors will include 287 rentals and the condos will sit above them.
