Brookfield Properties, Park Tower Group Complete Eagle + West in Greenpoint Landing

Brookfield Properties, in partnership with Park Tower Group,  today announced the completion of its 745-unit luxury residential complex, Eagle + West. Designed by world-renowned architecture firm OMA, the pair of towers and low-rise building feature a 42,000  square-foot, state-of-the-art amenities package and contribute over 30,000 square-feet of new public space to the city. Eagle + West is the latest set of buildings to open within the 22-acre, Greenpoint Landing master planned development.

The extension of Eagle Street and Dupont Street through the site to the East River, now open to the public, provide access to a new pedestrian plaza and waterfront esplanade that create an open,  accessible, and continuous waterfront neighborhood. Located at the northern most tip of Brooklyn along the East River, Eagle + West and its new public spaces offer panoramic views of the Manhattan skyline.  

“The transformation of Greenpoint Landing has been truly remarkable, and we’re excited to complete and unveil Eagle + West alongside our incredible design and development partners,” said Maria Masi, Senior Vice President, Brookfield Properties Development. “The amenities bring to life sweeping  views of the Manhattan skyline and the indoor-outdoor connection many of today’s residents look for. We’re proud to offer a dynamic, unparalleled living experience at Eagle + West and to continue to contribute to the energy and vibrancy of the Greenpoint community.”  

“Greenpoint Landing has evolved into a desirable destination for residents seeking access to  sprawling outdoor areas, local restaurants and shops and state-of-the-art interior and exterior  spaces,” said Marian Klein, President, Park Tower Group. “We’re excited to continue welcoming  new residents to the area and further its positive growth.”

Defined by the space between them, the two cantilevered towers were carefully crafted by OMA  Partner Jason Long to maximize views toward Manhattan and create a sense of residential privacy. The north tower retreats from its base, creating space for sweeping outdoor terraces, while the south tower expands out, capturing 360-degree views. Resembling the shingled fronts of Greenpoint’s townhouses, the building’s facades are carved by a series of angled planes that alternate in orientation – a dynamic feature that reacts to the movement of the sun – and contain gridded concrete panels insets with square, eight by eight feet windows, granting each unit an abundance of natural light. Beyer Blinder Belle served as Eagle + West’s Executive Architect and Unit Interior Designer.  

“Eagle + West reflects the collective ambition—with Brookfield Properties, Park Tower Group, and the design and construction teams–to create a platform for living connecting past and future, indoor and outdoor, urban street life and waterfront. The two towers – complementary siblings – create an ever-shifting presence that engages both the neighborhood and the waterfront. It will be exciting to see how the project grows as people begin to make it their home,” said Jason Long, OMA Partner

“The residential units were designed to maximize the stunning views, utilizing materials that evoke warmth and elegance, while providing a relaxing environment to come home to. Every detail was carefully crafted to heighten the senses to another level of beauty,” said Carlos Cardoso, AIA, Partner, Beyer Blinder Belle. 

As the interior and landscape architect, Marmol Radziner’s goal for the design of the Eagle + West project was to complement the exterior architecture and its surroundings with considered spaces for its residents. The design reflects the architecture as well as the natural surroundings, tying in with the angles of the building and the views over the East River to Manhattan. The interior and exterior finishes have a strong focus on tactile movement, with a color palette reminiscent of the waterfront. Minimalist interior spaces have muted tones and textured materials, both refined and honest in feel. A cohesive sense of warmth and comfort has been achieved through the use of color, wood design elements,  textured concrete, and meticulously sourced furniture that reflects the refined level of detail found throughout the common spaces. 

Eagle + West offers residents an abundance of amenity spaces that inspire connection, relaxation,  convenience, and luxury. The program includes a state-of-the-art fitness center, dedicated cycling studio and tranquil yoga room; an expansive central terrace with sweeping waterfront views featuring reservable grills and a bocce court flanked by lounge areas; an indoor lap pool; an outdoor resort-style pool; a coworking center with conference rooms; a crash pad space with big screen TV, sound system and projector; a workshop for creative hobbies; game room; children’s room; and a test kitchen. Residents have immediate access to the Greenpoint Landing riverside park designed by  James Corner Field Operations and are steps away from the G subway train and Greenpoint ferry stop.  

“We are excited to be collaborating on this wonderful project and bringing our vision to fruition in each amenity that Eagle + West has to offer. We have designed spaces that are warm and inviting,  with a focus on the residents and their needs. Large, open lobbies and amenity areas create visual connections from the interior to the exterior and the Greenpoint Landing waterfront. The furnishings are simple and refined, punctuated by boundary-pushing pieces, resulting in exciting and dynamic spaces that reinforce the architecture of the buildings. We look forward to seeing this community grow and thrive,” said Ron Radziner, FAIA, Design Partner, Marmol Radziner. 

Park Tower Group is developing the master plan for Greenpoint Landing which, when complete, will include approximately 5,500 apartments (both market rate and permanently affordable units), a  sprawling waterfront park designed by James Corner Field Operations and numerous local retail opportunities. Eagle + West is the fourth and final residential project Brookfield Properties and Park  Tower Group have developed together within the larger 22-acre Greenpoint Landing master planned development. The firms opened One Blue Slip site in 2018, Two Blue Slip in 2020 and The Bellslip in May  2022. For more information about Eagle & West, visit https://www.eagleandwest.com
