On the site immediately south of the former Greenpoint Terminal Market, which was destroyed in a massive fire in 2006, three high-rise buildings are planned, containing hundreds of apartments. As of now, Halcyon Management Group has filed permits for a 19-story, 234-unit tower at 29 West Street, a 14-story, 92-unit tower at 37 West Street and a 33-story, 410-unit tower at 65 Private Drive. CityRealty recently uncovered the first renderings of the Brooklyn project, which show a total of four towers, with two 400-foot towers overlooking the East River, and two smaller buildings situated further inland. SLCE Architects is listed as the architect of record for the three buildings filed.

The waterfront property is bound by Quay Street, Oak Street, West Street and the East River. It sits north of the Bushwick Inlet, which surrounds the Bushwick Inlet Park, a stretch of land in the early stages of becoming a public park.

The drawings detail a distinct façade with balconies/terraces found at most apartments. A public esplanade and park run the length of the site, a requirement of any new project from the 2005 rezoning of the Williamsburg and Greenpoint waterfront.

Last December, Curbed NY reported that the site will include 222 affordable apartments, with 89 of them set aside for low-income households and 132 of them for middle-income households.
