This development was designed with the existing architecture and the history of the neighborhood in mind. Raymond Block sets a new standard of living, working and shopping along Whyte Avenue.
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.
