The Greenpoint, a 40-story waterfront rental and condo tower and the neighborhood’s tallest building, topped out in February, launched sales in July and now, is a few months away from getting a public 275-foot long promenade at its waterfront site. After nearly a decade of delays, the Brooklyn walkway, the first of its kind to be privately built in Greenpoint, will open in the spring. According to the Wall Street Journal, the park will total 29,500 square feet, including a 4,000-square-foot playground with lots of trees and colorful oval panels above.

Greenpoint’s new waterfront skyline is quickly taking shape, as CityRealty reports the neighborhood’s first skyscraper has just topped off. The tower, measuring 400 feet, will be Greenpoint’s tallest, stretching 39 stories above the characteristically low-slung neighborhood now dominated by squat residential buildings and warehouses. With a somewhat uninspired name, The Greenpoint (as it will be known) will bring 95 high-end condos and 287 rental apartments to a block-long stretch of the area.
