This structure was created of mostly steel, concrete, brick, and glass, creating a modern yet sustainable design. “Each tower features post-tensioned decks with concrete cores and shear walls. The south building has three levels of underground parking and the north tower includes tenant storage in the basement. The exterior features two-tone masonry with window wall construction. Although not a LEED certified, the project is built using best ‘green’ construction practices. The rooftop also features solar panels and rooftop landscaping.” (JTM Construction, 2021, retrieved here)
FERO FAST Thermal Brackets were used in the building envelope design to ensure continuous insulation and optimized thermal performance. Using FAST Thermal Brackets enabled the design team to:
- Incorporate a thermal break instead of a thermal bridge in the smart, energy-efficient shelf angle design;
- Meet or exceed energy code requirements;
- Achieve energy and cost efficiencies; and
- Provide easy installation for the contractors.
Greenpoint Landing is a 22-acre master-planned development site located on the Brooklyn waterfront with a view of the Manhattan skyline, bringing a mix of ten residential towers and low-rise buildings, a new public school, and four acres of parkland. The buildings are located on reclaimed industrial use lands, and the brick veneer utilized in the building design provides continuity with the historical neighborhood.
