建筑设计 OMA / Jason Long
March 7, 2019 – Brooklyn, NY – Brookfield Properties and Park Tower Group today unveiled two new towers at Greenpoint Landing designed by OMA / Jason Long. The two towers, in conjunction with a lower seven-story building, will bring 745 units of housing—30% of which will be affordable—and more than an acre of new public open space to the neighborhood. This project is OMA New York’s first ground-up building in the borough of Brooklyn and will be a catalyst in the transformation of the waterfront from a post-industrial edge to an accessible and dynamic part of the neighborhood.
通过扩展鹰街和杜邦街，塔楼扩大了现有的公共滨水空地，沿滨线创造出共2.5英亩的连续公共开放空间，并将为社区增加8600平方英尺的底层零售场地。OMA负责此项目的合伙人Jason Long表示:“项目业主一直希望将温馨的绿点社区与它的滨水区连接起来，OMA很高兴能在事务所于布鲁克林的第一个项目上，与此合作。我们设计了两座经过仔细校准的塔—— 一座是金字型，另一座则反之。它们由彼此之间的空间定义，框起绿点区的一处新景观。”
By extending Eagle Street and Dupont Street, the towers will expand the existing public waterfront esplanade, creating a total of 2.5-acres of continuous public open space along the shoreline, and will add 8,600 sf of ground-floor retail to the neighborhood. OMA Partner Jason Long said, “Brookfield and Park Tower Group have been working together to connect Greenpoint with its waterfront, and we are thrilled to be collaborating with them on our first project in Brooklyn. We have designed two towers—a ziggurat and its inverse—carefully calibrated to one another. Defined by the space between them, they frame a new view of Greenpoint and new vista from the neighborhood to Manhattan.”
Like two dancers, the towers simultaneously lean into and away from one another. The taller tower widens toward the east as it rises, maximizing views and creating a dramatic face to the neighborhood and beyond. Its partner steps back from the waterfront to create a series of large terraces, widening toward the ground and the new waterfront park to the North.
The towers are framed by two lower volumes on the opposite corners of the site, creating a continuous edge around the block. Along this edge, subtle folds and shifts mark entries and define a smaller grain reminiscent of the often-variegated street edge conditions within Greenpoint.
The towers’ facades feature precast concrete panels surrounding large windows. Like the buildings’ forms, the precast panels are carved by a series of angled planes. Oriented differently for each block—vertical, horizontal or diagonal—the carved faces react dynamically to the movement of the sun throughout the day.
设计希望将此前未充分利用的滨水区，改造成绿地区一处新的繁荣、宜居、可持续场所，为绿点当地居民和游客提供更多的开放空间，并重新刻画布鲁克林的天际线。此地景观设计由James Corner JFCO设计事务所完成。
“The addition of much-needed housing and creation of new, accessible open space are transforming this underutilized stretch of waterfront into a new thriving, livable and sustainable addition to Greenpoint,” said Ric Clark, Senior Managing Partner and Chairman, Brookfield Property Group and Brookfield Property Partners. “These new developments with Brookfield will expand our beautiful waterfront esplanade, providing even more public open space for Greenpoint locals and visitors to enjoy, along with architecture that will define the Brooklyn skyline. With world-class landscape design by James Corner Field Operations, we are beginning to realize our transformative vision for a stretch of uninterrupted access to the Greenpoint shoreline,” said Marian Klein, President of Park Tower Group.
新塔楼建筑设计由Jason Long（OMA），项目建筑师Yusef Ali Dennis、Christine Yoon，执行建筑师Beyer Blinder Belle完成，并与Marmol Radziner（室内设计/建筑景观）和James Corner Field Operations（滨水景观）合作。预计今夏开始施工。
