“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.”
The towers of Eagle + West are carefully crafted as they rise from a single block. The north tower steps back creating sweeping terraces. Reaching toward Manhattan, its partner expands out capturing views in every direction. Defined by the space between, OMA Architects perfectly choreographed the buildings to maximize breathtaking views toward Midtown and away from neighbors.
Like the shingled fronts of Greenpoint’s townhouses, the building’s facades are carved by a series of angled planes. The shingling of each tower “block” alternates in orientation – a dynamic relief that reacts to the movement of the sun.
Made to View
Quite literally, every window, corridor, balcony, and terrace is designed to celebrate a view. Each moment is made memorable and distinct through perfect orientation and framing of the Manhattan skyline, surrounding neighborhood, and East River waterfront.
Cascade of Terraces
Starting almost from the top, balconies and terraces cascade down the building toward the water’s edge. Private balconies provide secluded tranquility. Communal terraces offer relaxation and recreation right at home and interweave the building with the promenade below.
The Perks of Park Life
From Newtown Creek to the public pier, the vibrant waterfront promenade brims with nature, shopping, and cafes. The progressive landscape design transforms with seasonal river and tidal changes, connecting the community with its natural cycles. Moments of playful recreation can be found at Greenpoint Playground and Newtown Barge’s baseball field.
