Two newly-constructed waterfront towers in Greenpoint are now accepting applications for rent-stabilized “affordable” apartments. A lottery is set to launch for 235 middle-income apartments at One Blue Slip and Two Blue Slip, a pair of luxury towers designed by Handel Architects that are part of Greenpoint Landing, a master plan developing 22 acres of the Brooklyn neighborhood. Households with combined annual incomes of between $81,258 and $183,300 can apply for the available units, including $2,370/month studios, $2,542/month one-bedrooms, $3,063/month two-bedrooms, and $3,530/month three-bedrooms. Qualified New Yorkers can submit one application for each building.

Developed by Brookfield Properties and Park Tower Group, One Blue Slip and Two Blue Slip sit on the northern tip of Greenpoint, with most residences at both buildings boasting water and Manhattan skyline views. Despite the discounted rent as part of the lottery, the apartments are still priced above the median rent for Greenpoint, which is roughly $1,677/month studios and $3,500/month three-bedrooms, according to CityRealty.
Two Blue Slip, which rises 40 stories and contains 421 rental units, has floor-to-ceiling windows, in-unit washer/dryers, and kitchens with quartz countertops and tile backsplash. Amenities designed by Gachot Studios include a two-story fitness center, landscaped outdoor deck, residents’ lounge, and an outdoor pool with a private bar and cabanas.
Apartments at One Blue Slip feature bay windows, stainless steel appliances, quartz countertops, and Bosch washer/dryers. Residents at the tower, which includes 359 units, can enjoy amenities like a co-working space, media room, gaming room, fitness center with a yoga studio, children’s playroom, and outdoor terrace with a kitchen.
According to CityRealty, One Blue Slip’s market-rate availabilities range from studios starting at $2,935/month to three bedrooms priced at $9,350/month. At Two Blue Slip, available units range from $3,015/month studios to $6,244/month two-bedrooms.
Following a 2005 rezoning of the neighborhood, the Greenpoint Landing plan involves the construction of 5,550 residential units across 11 towers along a half-mile of waterfront, a new pre-K through 8th-grade public school, and four acres of public space designed by James Corner Field Operations. About 1,400 units will be affordable.
